Located at the intersection of the Noe Valley, Glen Park, the Mission, and Bernal Heights, 676 San Jose is an amazingly convenient and walkable location; just a few blocks from the upper Noe Valley Rec Center/Playground, Gourmet Gulch on Church St, and endless cafes, markets, bars, and restaurants. Just one block to world famous Mitchell’s ice cream! It’s also the best commuter location, as it is walking distance to tech shuttles, Muni, and BART – and has the very best access to both 280 & 101.
This is a very unique property in an incredible location – homes like this don’t come on the market often, so you won’t want to miss this opportunity!
Over the years, Noe Valley has become one of San Francisco's most coveted residential areas. Many of the Victorian and Edwardian homes in the area have been updated for modern living, and the area is very convenient for out-of-town and downtown commuters alike, with easy access to highways and the J-Church Muni Metro line. Twin Peaks rises high above the valley, blocking much of the fog that lingers in the city's Western neighborhoods; frequent sunny days make this a wonderful home for those who love socializing with their neighbors. 24th Street is the heart of the neighborhood, and here you will find friendly faces popping in and out of boutiques, restaurants, charming cafes, salons and a bevy of long-standing small businesses. Throughout San Francisco, this area is known as a popular place for both new parents and dog lovers to congregate - watch out for strollers and dog leashes while window-shopping! The inclusiveness of the neighborhood is bolstered by a number of community events, including a weekly farmers market and October's much looked-forward-to Harvest Festival. Of course, Noe Valley neighbors find reasons to gather every day -- whether at Douglass Park playground, the newly opened recreation center and dog run, or just out in front of one of the many coffee venues.
