I for one could probably use a good walk everyday, but it depends on your wants and needs. Follow your intiution when making such a large purchase. But, also realize that it's not a perfect world and it's very difficult to find "EVERYTHING" when purchasing a home.
Golden Gate Heights is a pretty nice area in San Francico. The nearest shops and restaurants are on Irving Street. Although Irving Street is seven blocks away, it's still "somewhat walkable." Check out any addresses on http://www.walkscore.com to find out how walkable they are.
Also visit http://www.realestatesf.com/Community. It has a lot of good information about San Francisco.

I think the Inner Sunset would be better as would Lower Pac Heights, NoPa, West Portal, Inner Richmond, Noe Valley if you want to be able to have shops and restaurants within walking distance. The best way to find a good fit for yourself is to visit these neighborhoods. You'd be surprised how walking around will give you a good sense of what each offers or doesn't. There are so many great neighborhoods in SF and each offers something different.
You should go take a look at the area and see how you feel about it. Your nearest commercial area will be the Noriega corridor off 19th Ave. You should go park at the house, and walk to Noriega. The next closest and very cool area, is the Inner Sunset, which is a bit of a hike. If you like walking, it may not be an issue. If you want to walk out your front door into a commercial area, it probably won't work for you.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
Well, this property is close to Irving St. And Noriega St. shopping & dining,but you have to take a long walk :)
I would recommend you Inner/Central Sunset or West Portal and Cole Valley- nice walkable areas, no car needed.
I now these areas- I live here!
I would be happy to help you to find what you are looking for... Please contact me to discuss all the details.
