Like a pop up book displaying a mixed bag of architecture, this hillside nook offers more than its fair share of unique object lessons. Even though the style isn't consistent like its more uniform neighbors, one can't help but feel when they drive from Miraloma to Monterey Heights to St. Francis Wood that with each block, you are moving up a bit in style and class. You'll need a car for this neighborhood as there is not much within walking distance. Westwood Highlands is a well-known area within Monterey Heights. Homes rarely come on the market in Westwood Highlands. The small neighborhood consists of only 283 residences, and people tend to hang on to them. Strictly residential, its winding hillside streets feel a bit like a tucked away village; it’s easy to forget the heart of the city pulses just moments away. But that’s another one of the community’s charms: Small town perks with big city convenience. West Portal is the main hub of activity, with restaurants, specialty shops, and caffeine stops. Locals’ favorite Canyon Market is a full-service grocery stocked with hard-to-find imported items, and Whole Foods, Target, Mollie Stones, and Safeway are a short stroll away. Fun weekend activity: Grab picnic provisions and then head to Glen Canyon Park for a leisurely hike, or climb to the top of nearby Mt. Davidson for panoramic city views.
