The Woodsy Life: A Look At The Edgewood Ave Living Experience

Ah, Edgewood Avenue... The beautiful brick road in Cole Valley is one of the few left in San Francisco. Located near UCSF and Golden Gate Park, the sunny street runs high up the hill of Mount Sutro before ending at Sutro Forest. The avenue provides the perfect altitude for breathtaking Bay views and features historic and architecturally significant homes in a distinct Marin-like setting.

Traffic is nonexistent, amenities are a stone's throw away, and the coveted houses are often passed down from generation to generation - making it challenging even to have the opportunity to buy real estate here.

With such a delightfully charming location, it's easy to see why residents retain these lovely homes for decades. 

You can easily access all of the Cole Valley hot spots on foot from Edgewood Ave in about 10-15 min via the Farnsworth Steps, making it super easy to pop out for some exercise and Cole Valley culture. 


Enjoy exploring neighborhood favorites like Cole Valley HardwareBeit RimaThe Ice Cream Bar, and Crepes on Cole. Interestingly enough, Crepes on Cole was formerly The Other Cafe, a famous local comedy club where Robin Williams and Dana Carvey regularly performed stand-up acts.


If hiking is your thing, you are in luck! Homes on Edgewood have more access to trails, nature, and outdoor activities than most could imagine –while still miraculously being in San Francisco.
