Tucked on the back (west) side of Twin Peaks, the Midtown Terrace neighborhood is a planned community that is filled with a tranquil collection of detached single family homes that were built beginning in the 1950s. The neighborhood has a very suburban feel, with relatively wide streets and homes that often have both front and rear lawns. The Forest Hills muni stop is within walking distance (depending on your definition of walking distance) but Midtown Terrace residents are fairly car dependent (it was built beginning int he 1950s, after all). The good news is that almost every home has a garage, the bad news is that you'll probably be pulling in and out of that garage a lot!
At the base of the neighborhood lies the Midtown Terrace playground, which has an excellent play structure and flat field that is great for soccer or any other field game. Because the homes of Midtown Terrace were built as a planned community, it has a few features that you aren't likely to find in too many other San Francisco neighborhoods. A few examples would be that there are no homes built directly behind one another - Midtown Terrace homes are separated by a small strip of land known as a green belt.
All of the utilities are underground, so you don't see telephone or power lines. Homes in Midtown Terrace are a part of a neighborhood homeowner's association. Homes for sale in the neighborhood commonly feature three bedrooms and two bathrooms, which for the city of San Francisco is a pretty generous serving of real estate. The neighborhood is also within the geographic boundaries that give (a slight) preference to enrollment at the highly coveted Clarendon Elementary public school. These are just a few of the reasons that buyers with elementary aged children often consider this neighborhood when they are looking at homes for sale.
