Tour Of Bay Area Neighborhoods Part 2 – Sea Cliff

san-francisco-bay-2If at the end of the work day, you want to leave the hubbub of the city without actually leaving the city, Sea Cliff might be the neighborhood for you.

Sea Cliff’s opulent single family homes make it the perfect escape for the particularly affluent. With a median home price approaching $2 million, it’s no wonder the neighborhood is or has been known for high-profile residents such as Robin Williams, Sharon Stone, Cheech Marin, Twitter founder Jack Dorsey and the late photographer, Ansel Adams.

One of the most appealing aspects of Sea Cliff is described by its name. It’s at the edge of the Pacific with views of the ocean, of the Golden Gate Bridge and of the Marin Headlands.

Sea Cliff is almost entirely residential with virtually no commercial presence. That means, that unlike many San Francisco residents, Sea Cliff inhabitants are not surrounded by shopping, but they are within walking distance. Better yet, they are within an easy walk or bike ride to many of San Francisco’s most sporting and adventurous experiences, including golfing, biking, hiking the rugged beach and the Presidio.
