The small affluent neighborhood of “West Portal” is located at the southern edge of the hills in central San Francisco. The neighborhood takes its name from the Muni tunnel that runs beneath Twin Peaks and opened in 1918.
As the neighborhood is on the west side of Twin Peaks there is frequent fog in the summer months which help keep the neighborhood green.
There is a park in the neighborhood located above the muni tunnel and on a clear day you can see the Marin Headlands and the Farallon islands.
The neighborhood is mostly residential but the main Avenue (West Portal Avenue) is a major shopping district for southwestern San Francisco.
West Portal has many beautiful homes for the discerning buyer. St. Francis Woods is nearby. If you’re looking for a gem in the middle of the city, give us a call today!
