The Lake District is named after Lake Street: a charming tree-lined street with bike lanes, large sidewalks and stately homes. Lake Street stretches 1.5 miles—perfect for walking, running or biking—from the Presidio at Arguello Boulevard down to Sea Cliff at 27th Avenue. Its many neighborhood attractions include Baker Beach, China Beach, Land’s End trail, Presidio National Park, The Legion of Honor Museum, Mountain Lake Park, Rochambeau Playground, various tennis, and basketball courts, and the Presidio and Lincoln golf courses.
23rd Ave and the surrounding landscaped blocks feature stately 100-yr-old mansions and elegant rowhomes with impressive facades. Manicured lawns in nearby West Clay Park and the spacious boulevards of nearby Sea Cliff make this an especially friendly neighborhood for dog-walking, bicycling or strolling with baby. It rates an appealing “90” from Walkscore.com.
Just a few steps away from 153 23rd Ave you will find Pearl’s Cafe, Fiorella, Lokma, Pizzetta 221, Angelina’s and Bazaar Cafe — all of them dearly beloved neighborhood eateries that will become your favorite local spots to hang out. Nearby Clement offers a vast array of restaurants from every part of the world, along with every type of shopping you could desire and some unique neighborhood establishments such as Green Apple which draw visitors from the entire Bay Area.
This neighborhood is especially coveted by families, owing to the exceptional private and public schools which are located nearby (including Kittredge and Katherine Delmar Burke, Alamo and Presidio Middle Schools). There are also many playgrounds and outdoor open spaces which are great for little ones.
Access to downtown is easy via car or public transportation (along Geary) while access to San Francisco’s premier shopping districts (the Upper Fillmore and the Chestnut St corridor in the Marina) is just a breezy 10 minutes by car. The Lake District offers unparalleled access via the Golden Gate Bridge to the North Bay and beyond so you can get started on your weekend hiking adventures without wasting a lot of time in traffic.
But you may choose to not ever leave the neighborhood – the very best of San Francisco is right here on your doorstep!
