Noe Valley

Located in central San Francisco, Noe Valley is quaint, picturesque, and noted for its compact urban vibe. The nearby Twin Peaks shelter this neighborhood from the coastal wind and fog making it sunnier and warmer than San Francisco proper and surrounding areas. Noe Valley’s striking appearance lends itself to the highest concentration of row houses in San Francisco. Development began at the end of the 19th century, resulting in streets lined with classic Victorian and Edwardian architecture as well as friendly, high-end retail and hospitality businesses, giving the district a small-town feel. The few major thoroughfares that come into the area keep the streets free from typical traffic found in the big city. With its exhilarating rhythmic energy, Noe Valley is unlike most residential neighborhoods. Residents truly enjoy their life here. Two main commercial strips are lined with upscale restaurants and décor boutiques with dozens of kid- and pet-friendly storefronts and cafés. On any given day, residents in this easygoing neighborhood can be seen pushing baby strollers and walking their dogs while on weekends young professionals are often found in the abundance of neighborhood restaurants and bars. Noe Valley is one of San Francisco’s truly traditional havens. The neighborhood’s thriving pulse, convenient location, and a distinct charm make longtime inhabitants happy while attracting new residents to call it home.

Living in San Francisco

San Francisco is one of the most naturally beautiful metropolitan areas in the world. It’s full of hills, thrills, and, for a surprising number of summer days, chills. It’s had a culture — and counterculture — of creativity from the day it was founded, and that has made it a world capital. For decades, almost any tectonic shift in global thinking — from farm-to-table cuisine to disruptive tech — has had its start here. Beauty and vitality and watery borders have made the city a precious place in terms of availability and cost, but that doesn’t stop people from chasing their own cable car dreams. San Francisco is very much a neighborhood-delineated city, and different areas not only have their own distinct cultures and architectures, but also unique geologies and even weather patterns. There are, of course, literal tectonic shifts here, and San Franciscans tend to take the shakes with only slightly worried amusement.
