One neighborhood that gets overlooked by many home buyers is Westwood Park. Located just west of Sunnyside near City College in the southwest part of San Francisco, Westwood Park consists of more than 600 homes built in the 1920s-1930s. The completion of the Twin Peaks Tunnel in West Portal spurred Westwood Park’s development. Many of the homes are bungalow style, and provide very functional and attractive spaces.
Ocean Avenue is the southern border of Westwood Park, and is the closest retail strip to the neighborhood. Not far away is the Balboa Park Muni/BART station, and there’s easy access to nearby 280.
You’ll get more for your money in this more suburban enclave. The average single-family home was just under $1M, in the time period from June-September. The homes are larger than, say, Victorians, and have garages and front/rear yards. As is typical in the more western part of the city, the fog is more prominent. But Westwood Park’s idyllic environment does a good job of keeping your mind off the fog.
