Everyone talks about how Noe Valley is the new luxury neighborhood in San Francisco. Featuring a long list of community amenities and packed with almost everything “San Francisco” a San Franciscan could want, including an easy commute to Downtown or Silicon Valley, it has quickly become one of SF’s hottest real estate markets.In Noe Valley, you’ll find a variety of interesting shops to browse, yummy restaurants, cafés, and related foodie delights such as a very pretty weekend farmer’s market, Whole Foods, and the well-loved 24th Street Cheese Co. You’ll also find clean streets and lots of cute row houses, of varying vintages such as Edwardian, Victorian, and Marina, all tucked together on the hills and valleys that give Noe Valley its beautiful views and flowing shape.
Like so many San Francisco neighborhoods, Noe Valley has a rich and interesting history. Founded by the last Mexican alcalde (mayor) of what used to be called Yerba Buena, Noe Valley started its life as two quarries, and was built up after the famous 1906 earthquake — another reason the houses are relatively uniform in style.
Today, as one of San Francisco’s most sought-after neighborhoods, Noe Valley houses, among others, young families, long-time locals, creatives, and people working in the tech industry (the Bay Area’s latest, and maybe perpetual, boom).
