San Francisco’s Crocker-Amazon is quiet suburban neighborhood, a place to escape the chaos and bustle of the tourist districts, but with easily available public transport, lots of outdoor amenities, and some of the most varied weather in the city, with a balance of sun and fog. The top of the neighborhood boasts outstanding views of downtown San Francisco in the gap between McLaren Park and Twin Peaks. It’s an ideal place for families, but there’s still excitement nearby on Mission Street and Geneva Avenue, as these are two of the busiest streets on the south side. Shops are plentiful on Mission and there is lots to do, but with less congestion than the inner city. It’s a great place for a relocating family and it plays host for our Property Spotlight, gorgeous three-bedroom, two bath gem full of high-end finishes and comfortable living.
