The Twin Peaks neighborhood is so-named for, well…Twin Peaks. With an elevation of approximately 922 feet, they are the second highest points in San Francisco. They form a natural barrier for the summer fog causing the western slopes to be more foggy, while the eastern side usually is sunnier. Sutro Tower offers a stunning view of the Bay, while homes are built like staircases into the hill. Villa Terrace, a street originating in nearby Clarendon Heights, winds into Twin Peaks with a charming Tuscan quality. The fortunate residents of the property along the summits are blessed with spectacular views, as are most of the homes and apartments on the slopes.
