The beautiful Twin Peaks neighborhood offers some of the most dramatic glimpses of San Francisco within the city. Amazing views and unique vistas are plentiful, allowing residents to get a view of the Bay Area that they wouldn’t see in any other neighborhoods. Many locals enjoy hiking around Twin Peaks Boulevard, which forms a figure eight around the two hills that make up the Twin Peaks.
This city center location provides a mixture of housing options, including low-rise apartments, condo complexes, and single-family homes. The housing styles are typically 1950s and 1960s modern featuring boxy architecture, the backs of which sometimes drop below street level to provide stunning views. Some restaurants and shops are located just outside of the neighborhood, but the Twin Peaks Improvement Association works hard to discourage the city from handing out business permits within the area. As a result, residents will continue to enjoy open spaces without the threat of further development.
