Focused around the CPMC Hospital/medical center on California this neighborhood wedges itself between USF, the Richmond and the Presidio. You’ll have big, angular single-family homes with Spanish-Mediterranean details that may be detached with some having been upgraded; you’ll also get some townhomes and some large condominiums mixed in with older-inventory rental buildings.

The People: A diverse mix of professionals, physicians, students, families and long-time residents.
