Mission Terrace Neighborhood Basics:
Mission Terrace is bordered on the west and north sides by I-280, while Geneva defines the southern neighborhood boundary and Mission St is the eastern neighborhood boundary. Balboa Park, and the Balboa Park BART and Muni light rail stations are all located along the eastern side of the neighborhood, making this a surprisingly transit-rich neighborhood.
Housing Stock and Style:
The bulk of Mission Terrace consists of single family homes on 25′ wide lots. Many of the homes are attached or semi-attached to the neighboring homes. While the neighborhood has some features of a “residential park” it doesn’t have the wide streets and lush greenery of District 4 neighborhoods like St. Francis Wood or Forest Hill. There are a few smaller condominium complexes in the neighborhood, as well as some smaller unit buildings that have been converted to condominium.
Medium High. There are plenty of corner stores and small neighborhood shops, restaurants and cafes sprinkled through the neighborhood. In addition, the stores and shops along Ocean Ave. are within walking distance from much of the neighborhood.
While District 10 neighborhoods aren’t generally known for great transit options, Mission Terrace is very wells served by bus lines, a BART station, and a light rail Muni station. If you want a single family home and have a commute to downtown, Mission Terrace can be a great option. Freeway access to the south bay is also incredibly convenient.
