Perched on a serene and sunny eastern hill with remarkably easy access to both 280, 101, and the Bay Bridge, Potrero Hill has been quietly gaining momentum as one of the choice neighborhoods for home buyers. The commercial offerings are eclectic and hip, with cozy neighborhood restaurants, indie coffee shops, adorable flower shops, and plenty of artists. In fact, Potrero Hill is known as a sanctuary for urban artists, and many flock here to live and work.
Potrero Hill is one of San Francisco's best-kept secrets, a sunny, mellow residential neighborhood abundant with culture.
Once upon a time, this neighborhood was home to farmers and shipbuilders, which is why its streets are named after battleships (not merely states, as some assume), and also where it got its name, "Potrero" comes from the word pasture. Housing developed organically as Potrero Hill transitioned into a place for those seeking a quiet life not too far from the entertainment in SOMA and the Mission and the technology startups peppering the bottom of the hill. Now, you can find a diverse range of architecture, from Victorian cottages to contemporary mansions and condominiums. Potrero Hill is also one of the few places in San Francisco where you can easily find street parking most of the time.
