If you're looking for commanding views of San Francisco Bay, then Pacific Heights will take your breath away. What you'll find are heart-stopping sunsets with neighborhood hills lifting up from the Marina stretching east and west between the Presidio and Van Ness Avenue. This is the stuff of which dreams are made. It's a picture-perfect setting, and one Hollywood chooses to highlight when depicting the world-famous hills of San Francisco. This majestic section features some of the largest, most stylish homes in the city, including a wide array of French Chateaus, Victorians, Edwardians, and Mission Revivals. An affluent neighborhood, Pacific Heights is home to the consulates of Italy, Germany, Greece, Portugal, and Russia. Several elite private schools in the area were once former baronial mansions. Among these are Hamlin School for Girls, Convent of the Sacred Heart, Town School for Boys, San Francisco University High School, and Drew School. Those fortunate enough to live in Pacific Heights benefit from its gorgeous parks, playgrounds, and miles of hiking, running and biking in the adjacent Presidio Park. For shopping, look no further than Fillmore Street, running north and south through this exciting part of town.
