A Small, Idyllic & Coveted Community

If tranquil tree-lined streets and immaculate Victorian homes are the aestetics you dream of, Cole Valley may be the perfect location for you! As the smallest neighborhood in San Francisco, this idyllic community packs a ton of charm, personality, and unprecedented appeal into its compact quarters. The area is teaming with class and iconic San Francisco culture. 

Centrally located, Cole Valley borders Golden Gate Park to the Southeast and adjoins prominent neighborhoods like Inner Sunset, Ashbury Heights, Buena Vista, and Haight-Ashbury. Residents can enjoy a pedestrian lifestyle as Cole Street has a plethora of shopping and dining experiences, such as Cole Valley Hardware, Crepes on Cole, Cole Valley Tavern, The Ice Cream Bar, and Zazie. Many locals stroll over to Stanyan Street to grab a drink at Kezar Pub outside Kezar Stadium in Golden Gate Park or a cup of Joe at Lava Java. Outdoor activities are plentiful, with nearby Mount Sutro, Buena Vista Park, Corona Heights Park, Tank Hill, and Golden Gate Park. The highly-coveted local makes life in Cole Valley a dream.

Cole Valley is an uber-appealing neighborhood for those looking for a beautiful community that's also within proximity of UCSF and many one-of-a-kind mom-and-pop shops. Homes within the quaint community can be hard to find due to low turn-over sales from long-time residents and high demand. However, with the right agent, you can land a lovely home in Cole Valley and an excellent long-term investment.
