Part of the Lake Shore area around Lake Merced, Merced Manor was developed just before and after World War II as a "model community," with housing composed entirely of single-family residences.
Like Park Merced, the real estate was state-of-the-art when built. A trip from the lake to Fort Funston shows you what most of Western San Francisco looked like before it was developed: vast sand dunes with a few sturdy flowers and trees dotting the landscape.
One of San Francisco’s hidden gems, West Portal gets its name from the Muni Metro Station which runs through Twin Peaks Tunnel. Since the fog (known by locals as “Karl”) stops near the West Portal neighborhood, this is a great place to live if you enjoy bright blue skies. West Portal is filled with beautiful, traditional homes that are incredibly spacious. The Muni Station makes it easy for commuters to access the Financial District, Google, and the always-vibrant Union Square. Plus, Silicon Valley is easily accessible via the Highway 280, making West Portal a nice, central hub no matter where you work.
The Stern Grove Festival takes place every summer just outside of the southwest section of West Portal. Each Sunday from the beginning of June through mid-August, locals and tourists gather for a day of music, food, and fun. Even when the festival ends, there is still plenty to enjoy and explore at the Sigmund Grove Recreation Center including an off-leash dog park, several outdoor athletic courts and fields, a playground, and the Tracedro House, which is reservable for private events.
The Stonestown Galleria is near San Francisco State University. Stern Grove, the world-renowned Olympic Golf Club, Harding Park Municipal Golf Course and the San Francisco Golf Club all are scenic components of this neighborhood. Pine Lake Park is an enclave of family residences adjacent to Stern Grove, and many beautiful homes border the golf courses.
