In the central part of San Francisco, north of Twin Peaks and east of Mount Sutro, lies Clarendon Heights. Boasting incredible views of both the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges, Clarendon Heights is also home to a wide spectrum of architecture. Tudors and villas blend comfortably with sleek modern homes in a neighborhood that's very well kept. Some of San Francisco's famous hills also reside here; no need for a health club membership. Just take a brisk walk around the neighborhood, use some of the convenient hillside stairs, and enjoy the views. Primarily a residential community, its hills presented a challenge to builders, but the opportunities for views inspired them to persevere. Many of the original dwellings still remain, giving the area an eclectic feel.
