The Central Richmond is a relatively affluent neighborhood that is adjacent to some of the most expensive neighborhoods in San Francisco including Sea Cliff and Lake Street.
The housing stock is a diverse mixture of single family homes, condos, duplexes and TICs. The largest property type in terms of unit sales over the last year was single family homes, which were 48% of unit sales.
Residents of the Central Richmond enjoy direct access to Land’s End and the Presidio to the north and Golden Gate Park to the south.
The main retail shopping and dining area is along Geary Street. Major bus service along both California and Geary provides excellent mass transit to the downtown financial district and many other parts of the city.
San Francisco can be highly affected by fog from the Pacific Ocean. This mostly happens, off and on, during the summer months. Some summers are worse than others and most of the city still enjoys a large number of sunny days throughout the year.
The Central Richmond is fairly close to the Pacific Ocean and can be quite foggy from time to time. The high bluffs along Land’s End will sometimes hold the fog back.
However, the low lying areas of the Outer Richmond and Outer Sunset are an open door to the powerful draw of air from the hot central valley that pulls the marine layer in from the ocean.
