Central Sunset
Homes for Sale

Proximity to parks, room to roam in the bigger-than-some-SF-neighborhoods yards, and lots of great eateries and local haunts. Downtown is a quick (and probably crowded) N-Judah ride away, and car commuters can hop on 19th Avenue to head south. Yes, there’s more fog than on the east side of town, but that keeps things cool and comfy.

    Central Sunset Neighborhood Vibe

    Close to it all but not smack dab in the middle of it, the Central Sunset is predominantly residential with a sprinkling of commercial areas where it’s possible to grab a coffee or a beer, pick up some fresh produce, or enjoy a meal at your favorite neighborhood restaurant. Irving and Noriega are the hubs of the Central Sunset, which is bounded on the north and south by Lincoln and Ortega, and Sunset and 19th Ave. on the west and east.


    Popular Central Sunset Home Styles

    Single-family homes are at the top of the housing pyramid in the Central Sunset, with some condos and tenancies-in-common in the mix as well. The majority of the single-family homes are on 25’ wide lots, but there’s a section of this neighborhood with larger lots and fully detached homes. Most were built in the early 1900s through the 1940s, give or take a couple of decades.


    Getting Around in the Central Sunset

    Car commuters appreciate easy access to 19th Avenue and points south, and also to the north. The N-Judah light rail runs through the neighborhood to the beach on the west side and to the Caltrain depot at 4th & King on the other side of town. The #29 bus runs north-south along Sunset Blvd., and the #7 bus runs east-west from the beach to downtown.

    More About the Central Sunset

    Irving and Noriega are the commercial centers of this mainly residential area, where single-family homes mingle with some condos and TICs. Proximity to Golden Gate Park makes the area appealing to residents with kids and/or dogs. A few blocks south, the Sunset Playground fills an entire city block bounded by Lawton, Moraga, 28th Avenue, and 29th Avenue. Tennis courts, a basketball court, a baseball field, children’s play areas, and a small community garden make for a great community gathering spot.

    Not known as a destination neighborhood, the Central Sunset appeals to those who desire City living, minus some of the congestion and noise associated with some of the livelier parts of town. There are plenty of welcoming restaurants, bars, and coffee houses in the neighborhood.

    Housing in the Central Sunset is predominantly single-family homes, but there’s a sprinkling of condos and TICs as well. Yes, it’s foggier on this side of town, but for those who prefer a cooler temperature, the fog can provide a welcome respite from the sun on the east side of town.
