If you do decide to make this amazing neighborhood your home, you can count several well-known architectural masterpieces as your neighbors including the Spreckles and Flood Mansions and the Haas Lillienthal House. Any good history of San Francisco will include plenty about the neighborhood, and a casual stroll can easily take you past many a building with a long and colorful history from a time when San Francisco was just getting started. Breathtaking views compliment the stunning homes. Neighborhood businesses are upscale – as one would expect – with many designer clothing boutiques, independent bookstores, wine and spirit shops, and cafes serving the area. A night out could easily find you dining at one of the many delicious and acclaimed restaurants along Fillmore street or catching the latest documentary or foreign must-see at one of two independent movie theaters.
