Potrero Hill

Charming neighborhood with amazing bay and skyline views.

Welcome to Potrero Hill 

Found on the eastern hills of San Francisco lies the charming neighborhood of Potrero Hill. Known for its spectacular sunny weather and awe-inspiring views of the city and San Francisco Bay, the burgeoning community is accessible to major highways and a Caltrain station, making commuting in and out of the city easy and convenient. Potrero Hill offers a unique character with a strong community, ideal for young professionals and families. 
Located on the eastern side of the peninsula, a major distinction of Potrero Hill is its insulation from the fog and chill of the Pacific Ocean and is typical to the western part of the city. The quiet, sleepy neighborhood is not traditionally known as a tourist destination, making it an alluring choice for those wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. 

What to Love
