THE HISTORY OF SUTRO HIEGHTS

Sutro Heights has a rich history dating back to the 1870’s. Hundreds of miles away in the Sierra Nevada, Adolph Sutro, an Austrian mining entrepreneur, made his millions by extracting a silver deposit called the Comstock Lode. With his newfound wealth, Sutro could buy any property in the world, and decided to purchase the neighborhood which this house sits on today. During a visit to the area in 1879, he fell in love with the undeveloped corner of San Francisco between Lands End and Ocean Beach, declaring that, “I have been around the world several times and visited many places famous for scenery, but I have never seen a finer sight than that which lies before you”. 

On the land in and around Sutro Heights Park, Sutro built his mansion, surrounding it with grand Victorian-style gardens, Greek statuary, and an observation deck overlooking the churning white Pacific below; all of this he opened to the public. The Cliff House was rebuilt in the style of a French Chateau. Where Lands End lies today, Sutro built his public baths and a museum, which featured 7 indoor pools heated to different temperatures. There were so many attractions that one could spend an entire day in Sutro Heights, making the hours long train ride from downtown worthwhile. Soon, the neighborhood became the playground for the Victorian upper class of San Francisco and abroad. Sutro’s manor attracted the most famous figures of the day; writers like Mark Twain, titans of industry like Stanford and Crocker, newspaper tycoon William Randolph Hearst, and U.S. Presidents Hayes, Grant, Roosevelt, and Taft.

Many notable filmmakers have also found inspiration in the outstanding natural beauty of Sutro Heights. Don Seigel’s 1958 film, Lineup, a nd Hal Ashby’s 1972 cult classic, Harold and Maude both feature scenes at Sutro Baths, while the Legion of Honor, a 10 minute walk from the property, appears in Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo. 

Sutro eventually sold the lot this house occupies in 1893 and the current property was erected in 1929. Sutro’s mansion and baths are gone, but the gorgeous scenery and historic monuments are moving to modern visitors as they were to those more than a century ago. Sutro’s landmarks are a 5 minute walk away. From the house, one sees the same vistas that captivated Sutro when he first visited the neighborhood almost 150 years ago, boasting views of Ocean Beach down to Montara Mountain and out across the Pacific to the Farallon Islands. The interior features tastefully modern decor complementing the antique craftsmanship found in the hand carved doors and tiled wood flooring.

This one of a kind and extensively modernized property has had just a handful of owners since being built, among them an NBA player and an author and attorney.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD

If you are looking for a beautiful neighborhood in San Francisco surrounded by the most popular parks in the Bay Area, the Outer Richmond District is a great place to call home. The community is filled with gorgeous row houses that hug the sloped streets of the Richmond District. With its variety of ethnically diverse communities throughout the neighborhood, living in the Richmond District is a true cultural experience. While the westernmost park of Geary Road can be heavily trafficked, there are plenty of great restaurants and shops to explore on nearby Balboa Street. Enjoy your morning coffee along with a tasty breakfast sandwich at the highly-rated La Promenade Cafe, or stop by the long-standing Simple Pleasures Cafe if you’re craving a bagel or muffin. The Outer Richmond neighborhood is a great place to explore a variety of cuisines around the world, including the Al-Masri Egyptian Restaurant and the local Vietnamese favorite Mr. Banh Mi. One of the best features of the Outer Richmond District is it’s within walking distance of Golden Gate Park. The park is home to a wide variety of different activities and festivals, including a free bluegrass festival, as well as the Outside Lands Music Festival. Golden Gate park also features several bike and jogging paths, botanical and Japanese gardens, and since the park is closed to car traffic on Sundays, it provides a peaceful escape from the constant bustle of San Francisco. The Outer Richmond District is also just a mile away from the scenic Ocean Beach. Known for its high winds and strong currents, Ocean Beach is perfect for surfing, biking along the coast, or simply hanging out. Plus, the beach is dog-friendly and as long as your pooch is well-trained, they can enjoy the beach off leash! Outer Richmond District residents can explore one of the Bay Area’s most popular tourist attractions found at Sutro Baths. What originally began as a bathhouse in the late 19th Century, Sutro Baths suffered through a variety of economic hardships and ultimately succumbed to a fire in the mid-60s. After a day of exploring the ruins, most tourists and locals enjoy a fantastic meal with unrivaled ocean views at the Cliff House, which is another amazing Bay Area landmark. The Cliff House has been dazzling its guests with their amazing fare for over 150 years, and if you live in the Outer Richmond District, this restaurant can be enjoyed any time of the week.
