About Eureka Valley
Eureka Valley has excellent access to high-speed public transit, with underground subway stops at the corner of Castro & Market and Market & Church. This system can get people downtown in under 15 minutes, even during rush hour.
Weather-wise, Eureka Valley benefits from being situated in the lee of several hills, including Twin Peaks, Diamond Heights, Mount Sutro, and Mount Parnassus, which effectively block ocean fog most of the time. This means that the area is frequently sunny and about ten degrees warmer compared to the western neighborhoods, which are often shrouded in heavy, cold fog that comes and goes throughout the summer months.
Eureka Valley was not destroyed by the earthquake and subsequent fire in 1906, resulting in a healthy stock of mostly renovated Victorian and Edwardian homes mixed with other new, mid- and late-century properties. There are also a significant number of 2-4 unit properties that were originally rental apartments. These are often purchased by residential ownership groups who hold title as Tenants in Common (TICs), a form of fractional ownership with specific occupancy rights that is popular in many of the higher density northern and eastern neighborhoods of San Francisco. TICs are significantly less expensive to purchase than condos, but they come with a more complex financing and ownership profile.
