294 Upper Terrace
On a beautiful day in 1877, San Francisco locals flocked to witness the unveiling of a statue named the Triumph of Light sitting atop the upward slope of Ashbury Street -- a place we now know as Mt. Olympus in Ashbury Heights. With the warm blush of summer at our doorstep, the road to Mt. Olympus sheds new light on the joys of city living with the unveiling of 294 Upper Terrace. Meticulously remodeled in 2013, this remarkable single family home boasts dazzling designer finishes throughout. Pull into the 2-car garage and leave the stress of day behind. This is your sanctuary, your home. The nearby “secret” Monument Way staircase, not far from the base of the famed statue, reveals a shortcut to 17th Street and the Cole Valley shops not far below. 294 Upper Terrace is a modern day classic home steeped in style and wrapped in culture.

Buena Vista/Ashbury Heights is a small community that is light in commercial traffic, and heavy in green residential space. The focus of the community circles around Buena Vista Park, the first official park in San Francisco established in 1867. The park is celebrated by its nearby residents and by all San Franciscans for its secluded, winding trails as well as for being home to one of the city’s few remaining oak woodlands.
The homes that line the streets in this upscale neighborhood are a mix of the traditional Edwardian and Victorian single-family homes innate to San Francisco’s character, with modern residences whose contemporary architects gracefully blended in their designs, a nod to the neighborhood’s inherent style.
Its convenient location provides walking-distance proximity to neighboring districts overflowing with boutiques, bars, restaurants, cafes, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops, and music venues. And with the city’s public transit lines running through and around its borders, accessing other parts of the city is simple.
Ashbury Heights is a notably beautiful neighborhood that embodies a very unique charm and offering an exclusive San Francisco experience.
Access to public transportation is excellent. The 37 CORBETT bus stops on Buena Vista Avenue East, and offers connections to Market Street buses and trolleys. The 7 HAIGHT bus stops at Haight and Baker Streets, and travels downtown via Haight and Market Streets. The N JUDAH trolley that connects Ocean Beach to downtown San Francisco stops at Carl and Cole, which makes commuting quick.
