New developments and a rich cultural diversity make this one of the best kept secrets of the north peninsula. Rolling hills usher Highway 101 into The City, offering a spectacular view of the water, with the city of Oakland visible on clear days from across The Bay. Windsurfers, hikers, and kayakers often take advantage of the area near Candlestick Park, home to the 49ers NFL team. Dotted with recreation areas and newly constructed MUNI Metro lines, this area is well suited for commuters who want to live in The City but still wish to enjoy the recreational advantages of the peninsula.
A welcoming environment to artists, the once shipyards are now home to literally hundreds of artists’ studios. There is no shortage of open studios and galleries to discover. Neighboring Bayview to the west is one of the most culturally rich neighborhoods in South San Francisco. Excelsior boasts a down-to-earth atmosphere, with Asian, Latin, Persian, Italian, and Irish influences. The resulting mix of cultures provides a culinary diversity that is unmatched.
One can pass over a dozen different produce markets on a walk through Excelsior’s Victorian-lined streets. Take advantage of world famous Filipino, Hawaiian, Italian, and Mexican restaurants, then travel south to a 317 acre park that boasts a nine-hole golf course and an impressive amphitheater. Or, simply lose the rest of your day exploring the park’s numerous trails and hidden wonders.
Public transportation is easy to access here, giving residents who wish to enjoy the quiet of the parks, but work in The City, the best of both worlds.

"Barbagelata Real Estate sold our residence in the city several years ago. Working with them was a pleasure: they were very professional, knowledgeable, prepared, so smart, and he takes on all the work and the worries that come with home buying and selling."
