2136 Great Highway, San Francisco


From the peaceful morning light to the enchanting golden hour, life at Ocean Beach offers adventure and zen to those who live in one of San Francisco's most tightly guarded secrets. With a rare, unobstructed view of the ocean, this serene home places you in the front row to one of the most iconic surf spots in Northern California, OB. The home's main living spaces make it easy to meditatively watch the waves, relax with friends, or wait for the perfect conditions before you grab your board and cross the street for a paddle. 

The ideal floor-plan perfectly positions the open kitchen and living room toward the ocean and the two main level bedrooms are located at the back of the house. Both bedrooms have doors to a lovely deck that is the ideal spot to enjoy your coffee in the morning sun. During our city's beautiful Indian summers, enjoy stunning sunsets from your rooftop deck or check the swell before you venture out. When it is time to rest your head, the primary bedroom offers a spacious retreat on the garden level. There is a quaint full bathroom ensuite and glass doors slide open to let in the fresh coastal breeze. 

Life Along The Western Edge in the Sunset and Parkside

This prime spot at the city's western edge allows the unique opportunity to disconnect from the bustle of urban life with an ever-changing and enthralling view of nature. Enjoy watching pelicans glide and dive, ships and sailboats navigate the Golden Gate, and surfers of incredible athleticism ride the mighty swell. 

Whether you work from home or commute, 2136 Great Highway is only moments away from the city center. Making it easy to hop downtown or across the street to walk, jog, or surf along the beach, head out for fantastic bike rides, or relax and watch others do the same along the Great Highway. 

This neighborhood has a friendly community of families, start-up founders, and professionals who take advantage of the location for work-life balance. There are terrific schools, farmer's markets, and delicious restaurants and bars like Outerlands, Hook Fish, White Cap, Damnfine, Sunset Cantina, and Palm City only moments away. Kickstart your day with coffee shops and bakeries, like Devil's Teeth, which are so good they have a cult following.
