About the Sunset District

As the largest neighborhood within the city and county of San Francisco, the Sunset is bounded by Golden Gate Park to the north and Ocean Beach and the Pacific to the west. The Sunset is the west-central section of San Francisco, consisting of three sub-neighborhoods which we’ll cover below: Outer Sunset, Central Sunset and Inner Sunset.

Outer Sunset

The Outer Sunset is a neighborhood located in the central western section of San Francisco. It is one of the last neighborhoods in the city to be developed.
Most of the homes here were built in a neat grid of two-story tract homes during the 1930s and 1940s. The famous San Francisco developer of this area, Henry Doelger, was known for the simplistic and practical design of his homes.
One of the biggest perks of living in the Outer Sunset is its beachside locale. Even homes further from the sand can have great views of the Pacific Ocean. But this perk goes hand-in-hand with the neighborhood’s only drawback: the fog that often obstructs said views. The fact is, residents who live here love the ocean and the fog doesn’t take away from its prime beachfront location.
Public transportation runs all the way out to this relatively distant neighborhood with Lincoln Way running along its northern border and providing direct access to the freeway. Golden Gate Park is also just to the north of the Outer Sunset.
Irving Street serves as the main commercial drag for the Outer Sunset, lined with cafes, restaurants, storefronts, and bars. Part of the charm of this neighborhood is the treasured mom-and-pop businesses sprinkled around the neighborhood, aging it some, but with distinction.
