This delightful home is poised on a lovely, tree-lined street steps away from Alta Plaza Park. This flat block affords an easy stroll to the cafés, restaurants, and chic boutiques on popular Fillmore Street - a block and a half away! Boasting a 97 Walk Score®, this location is deemed “a Walker’s Paradise – Daily errands do not require a car.” Pacific Heights is considered one of the most scenically advantaged locations in the world. It is bordered to the west by a mature forest of pine, cypress, and eucalyptus trees which the army began planting in the Presidio in the 1880s. To the north is Crissy Field, originally a rich salt marsh at the bay’s edge and now a wildlife sanctuary. Just beyond is the bay, the Golden Gate Bridge, and Marin Headlands. All are protected sites within the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA), one of the largest urban national parks in the world.
