There are not too many neighborhoods that have "large yards. My recomendation would be either The Sunset or if you have the money Seacliff

Hi Leslie - Generally you're looking at St. Francis Woods, Forest Hill, Sea Cliff, Ingelside Terrace, Lakeside, Presidio Heights and some Pac Heights (you may have large lots, but not much yard in some areas here cause the houses are so large). Depending on what your needs are, you probably could find a house with a good sized yard in any area in SF.

I find that there are many large yards throughout the city. Many times when I'm viewing homes on tour I see houses that have very large gardens. This is mostly due to some topographical reason. The neighborhoods that have large lots by planning are the ones in district 4. West Portal, Monterey Heights and St Francis Wood. Ingelside Terrace has many large and flat lots on the homes along Urbano Dr.
Hope this helps.

There are homes with very good sized yards in the Marina, Cow Hollow and Inner Richmond/Lake Street areas too. They are relatively small footprint buildings on long skinny lots. There are other areas like this dispersed all over the city.

Hi Leslie-

Typically, one will find the largest lots in 4g- St. Francis Woods, 4a- Balboa Terrace and possibly 4e- Ingleside Terrace but the Jordan park/ Laurel Heights area has some good space too.

Good Luck!!

San Francisco is a city of 7 miles square, or so they say. The only areas with reasonable yards are in the St. Francis Wood area and even then lots in San Francisco are generally small. The houses in the Sunset and the Richmond have small patches in the back but nothing what one would call large. Then again, what one considers large is subjective. If you want a large lot you need to move to the burbs, either Marin, the East Bay or the Peninsula.
