NEIGHBORHOOD: NOE VALLEY

With its popular 24th Street shopping district, easy commute to the South Bay via I-280, and beautiful views, Noe Valley has become one of San Francisco’s most desired neighborhoods. 

Living in Noe Valley is an easy commute south, and many Silicon Valley companies have employee shuttles that stop in the neighborhood. The J-Church metro train and the 24 Divisadero and 48 Quintara buses are among the public transit options available in Noe Valley. Numerous shops and restaurants line 24th Street, including a Whole Foods Market, the ever-popular Firefly restaurant, the Noe Valley Bakery, and Phoenix Books. Lovejoy’s Tea Room, a quaint British tea room that remains a favorite for bridal showers, sits around the corner on Church Street. A second, smaller shopping strip on Church near 29th Street features a Regent Thai restaurant, and Toast Eatery diner, which also boasts a 24th Street location. Homes in the Liberty Hill area on the neighborhood’s north end — bounded by Liberty, Hill, Church, and Castro streets – offer stunning views and proximity to Mission Dolores Park. A lavish Christmas display on 21st Street attracts throngs of spectators each December to Liberty Hill. 

In addition, Noe Valley enjoys some of San Francisco’s sunniest weather. Nearby Dolores Park with its spectacular views, dog run, and free movie nights, remains one of the most popular hangout spots in San Francisco. The city also recently remodeled the park’s playground as part of a large-scale renovation project. While Noe Valley is known for its large number of young families, it remains appealing to a diverse crowd including professionals and couples without children.
