Forest Hill

Forest Hill is a leafy, century-old enclave of large estate homes, manicured lawns and flowering gardens so exclusive it's almost unknown in San Francisco. That might be the way its residents like it. Nestled among towering Monterey Pine and cypress trees, Forest Hill enjoys the serenity, privacy, and tranquility of a small village. It is the only neighborhood in San Francisco with its own homeowners association.

Beneath its tree-shaded, winding streets, the 650 homes of Forest Hill follow the contours of Twin Peaks. The hillside provides spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco Bay. Stately homes are built in styles ranging from Spanish Mission to California Modern, with French Normandy, English Tudor, and Cotswold Cottage adding a sense of history. Noted architect Bernard Maybeck designed the historic clubhouse on Magellan Avenue, built by members on weekends, in 1919.

Forest Hill residents enjoy exclusive access to the Clubhouse, where the homeowners association hosts neighborhood gatherings such as the annual Children's Halloween party. Each August, classical musicians from around the world perform at the clubhouse during Forest Hill Musical Days. This chamber music festival was founded in 2003 by pianist Mari Kodama and her husband, conductor Kent Nagano, who both live in the neighborhood.

Though off the beaten track, Forest Hill is nonetheless close to West Portal Avenue and its shops. Forest Hill or West Portal stations provide MUNI service to Union Square and the Financial District.
