Around the Block

Lake street:
A peaceful residential street ideal for escaping busy city life.

Lake Street is a uniquely family-oriented neighborhood that’s all along one tree-shaded wide lane. Here, residents stop to chat with fellow dog-walkers in meditative Mountain Lake Park, parents pull beach-weary kids in red wagons behind them and bikers prepare for their adventures in the hills just north of the bridge.

What to expect:
On Lake Street, quiet family life is the norm, and new and longtime residents love it here.

Once they arrive, residents of Lake Street tend to stick around for a while thanks to the access to just about everything a family could want — great schools, parks and open space, gorgeous homes with ample room to grow and quiet, safe streets.

The lifestyle:
Spacious seclusion with easy access to restaurants and parks.

Being away from it all is part of life on Lake Street where downtown San Francisco feels so far but is, in reality, only a short trip — but locals gravitate towards nearby restaurants and parks anyway, of which they have quite a selection.

Unexpected appeal:
A quick ride north to the Golden Gate Bridge, Lake Street is a biker’s dream.

Hop on your bike and head across the bridge to take on the hills of Marin County or ride up to the Presidio where scenic roads and mountain bike trails lead to a handful of gorgeous beaches.

Neighborhood Block

The market:
High prices and large, single-family homes.

You’ll be able to find multi-unit buildings with historical flare and parking on Lake Street, but Victorian, Edwardian and modern-style single-family homes dominate the market here, where the median home price is a hefty $3.1 million.
