If you left your heart in San Francisco, chances are good that Noe Valley is where it has taken up residence. Named for José de Jesús Noé, the last Mexican alcalde (or mayor) of San Francisco, Noe Valley took shape at the end of the 19th century as Victorian and Edwardian homes sprouted up like wildflowers.
Today, Noe Valley is celebrated as one of the most desirable neighborhoods in San Francisco for its eclectic and delightful architectural mélange of old, new and everything in between. Once an understated, best-kept-secret neighborhood, Noe Valley (as well as nearby Eureka Valley, Liberty Hill, Upper Market and the Mission District) is now highly valued for its high-end, luxury San Francisco real estate. Noe Valley’s hallmarks are beautiful weather, friendly neighbors, terrific shopping and services, plus great access to downtown or points south via car or public transportation.
Everybody loves Noe Valley for its multi-textured cityscape, its enchanting architecture and some of the happiest living in San Francisco. (In fact – many people will tell you Noe Valley is hands-down the very best place to be if you want to make a lucrative real estate investment in San Francisco.) Not only is Noe Valley’s high-end housing endlessly delightful, but its main corridor, 24th Street, has no shortage of popular restaurants, shops and conveniences.
Besides banks, pharmacies, nail parlors, hair salons, apparel shops, florists, bars, bakeries and gift shops there are many go-to favorites of ours: Noe Valley branch of the SF Public Library, Hiway Burger, Whole Foods, Eric’s Chinese, Chloe’s Café, Martha & Brothers Coffee, the Saturday Farmer’s Market. Friendly, walkable, sunny, attractive, historic and affluent – that’s Noe Valley.
