Sea Cliff

Oceanfront living like no other among San Francisco’s elite.

Welcome to Sea Cliff

Oceanfront living like no other among San Francisco’s elite
Scenic, suburban, and located on the shores of the stunningly beautiful South Bay, the master-planned neighborhood of Sea Cliff is highly sought after by potential homeowners looking to enjoy all the benefits of living in San Francisco while escaping the constant buzz of activity and throngs of tourists who take to the city’s streets. Home to tech moguls like Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, Sea Cliff has transformed itself from an underappreciated residential neighborhood into one of San Francisco’s most in-demand real estate markets. 
Aptly named after the sheer cliffs that dominate the neighborhood’s coastline, Sea Cliffs features a unique landscape that’s hard to come by anywhere else in the city. Influenced and marked by the designs of many famous architects like Willis Polk, Julia Morgan, and Albert L. Farr, the homes in Sea Cliff are typically constructed in Mediterranean style and enjoy unbelievable views over the ocean and the distant Golden Gate Bridge. 

What to Love

  • Affluent, elite residential neighborhood
  • Spectacular ocean views
  • Beautiful historical and modern homes
  • Surrounded by sprawling green spaces and outdoor recreational attractions

Local Lifestyle

Bordered to the east and west by some of San Francisco’s most spectacular parks and green spaces, many Sea Cliff residents enjoy a quiet lifestyle with much of their recreational activities focused on the outdoors. With an immaculately kept golf course, pristine sandy beach, and a complex network of hiking trails at their fingertips, it’s easy to understand why Sea Cliff is particularly popular among professionals looking to get away from the bustling city and escape into nature. 

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Although Sea Cliff is more renowned for its privacy and serene streets than its lively dining and entertainment scene, the neighborhood’s central location means residents can access all these amenities and more within just a short drive or walk. Just a few blocks away lie Geary Boulevard and Clement Street, both of which are brimming with popular bakeries, cafes, and boutiques that attract, affluent clientele from across the city. For classic thin-crust pizza served in a cozy, warm atmosphere, look no further than Pizzetta 211, a casual eatery equally well known for its house-made desserts. Geary Street is also home to Tommy’s Mexican Restaurant, where patrons can enjoy a range of fresh, authentic Mexican dishes alongside an exhaustive list of tequilas and incredibly popular margaritas. 
And, for those in search of delectable Mediterranean-Californian cuisine, look no further than Pearl 6101, one of San Francisco’s most beloved fusion restaurants known for its fresh seafood, mouthwatering pasta, and long list of specialty cocktails. Pearl 6101 is often frequented by families and friend groups in search of an elevated, yet relaxed dinner in a warm, inviting space.

Things to Do

Sea Cliff has much to offer its residents through recreational activities and attractions. Tucked between the ocean and a small park, China Beach is a secluded cove featuring several tide pools that are popular for a swim in the warm summer months. Another scenic waterfront destination, Baker Beach, is located just past Sea Cliff’s eastern border and provides spectacular views of the Golden Gate Bridge.
For those who prefer to admire Sea Cliff’s location from a more landlocked vantage point, the Legion of Honor is a longstanding art museum surrounded by a network of hiking and walking trails that offer breathtaking views over the deep blue waters. Nearby, the Lincoln Park Golf Course is an iconic San Francisco landmark that’s been around since 1902 and is still a great spot to enjoy a game with friends or colleagues.
