Neighborhood Spotlight: Corona Heights

Eureka Valley, Cole Valley, Duboce Triangle, the Haight and Buena Vista Park are all neighbors. And smack dab in the middle of them is Corona Heights.

This small neighborhood is home to the Randall Museum, and has several parks nearby, so it’s great for dog owners. There’s Corona Heights Park itself, which has a dog area, and slightly north is Buena Vista Park. On the south side is Tank Hill. All are nice, open spaces. There are some crazy secret stairways in Corona Heights, too–one on Saturn Street, and one on Vulcan. And don’t forget about the tennis courts on 15th Street between Beaver and Buena Vista Terrace, or Mount Olympus, a historical site on Upper Terrace.

If you’re looking for the closest Muni rail lines, you’ll find them either in Cole Valley (N Judah) or the Castro. However, the 37 Corbett runs straight through Corona Heights, from Twin Peaks to the Haight. That’ll get you to the Muni rail stations in the Castro.

Single-family home and condo prices in Corona Heights are pretty much in line with surrounding neighborhoods, though they’re probably slightly lower (though not by much). Single-family house prices range from $741,000 for a 2BR/2BA cottage to $1,675,000 for a 3,000 square foot 3BR house on Market (originally listed at $2,450,000). And let’s not forget about the renovated, Mediterranean house currently back on the market at 424 Roosevelt Way.

Quite a few condos have recently sold in the neighborhood, too, at an average price of $879,857.
