605 Waller - nexus of three marvelous neighborhoods

Surrounded by grand scale historical buildings, 605 Waller sits in a prime location at the nexus of three marvelous neighborhoods. Most significantly, it is positioned at the entrance to a short and secluded tree-lined cul-de-sac that leads directly into Duboce Park, surely one of the most delightful parks in San Francisco. Whether you enjoy walking your dog, sunbathing, hanging with your family at the playground, shooting some hoops with your friends, or taking in the latest photography exhibit at the Harvey Milk Rec Center, you'll love the fact that this superb urban park is less than a minute from your front door.

The neighborhood on all sides of 605 Waller is an utterly charming residential enclave conveniently situated near the crossroads of three wonderful adjoining neighborhoods (Hayes Valley, Duboce Triangle and Alamo Square) and is very centrally located for access to so many other parts of the city.

A block to the east is Reveille Cafe, the neighborhood’s newest gourmet arrival with a delicious lunch menu. A block beyond that is Cafe du Soleil — a well established restaurant with charming Parisian-style outdoor tables on a sunny corner. A block to the north of 605 Waller is Black Sands, a spacious and contemporary gastropub / brewery.

Continuing on your walk northeast from 605 Waller, you’ll approach the ritzy hub of Hayes Valley. Every conceivable eatery, bar and fashionable boutique can be found on this dynamic artery, ranging from Petit Crenn, Rich Table, 20th Century Cafe, and Monsieur Benjamin to the venerable Absinthe Cafe and restaurant, where the political elite from nearby City Hall congregate for lunch. Hayes Valley is also home to Octavia Green with its sculpture garden and an open-air biergarten, ice-cream salon and roastery. A great spot for people-watching!

If you enjoy the arts, you’ll enjoy walking to and from the San Francisco Performing Arts Center (housing the San Francisco Ballet, San Francisco Opera, and San Francisco Symphony). The nationally-acclaimed Hayes Valley Jazz Center is even closer.

To the northwest, a few blocks away, is the Divisadero Corridor and NoPa. Neighborhood bars The Page and Horsefeather sit alongside restaurants like Ragazza, 4505 Burgers & BBQ, and Nopa. The short stroll through the Wiggle to this area also brings you to Bi-Rite’s second location, a great local Sunday Farmer’s market, and The Mill’s excellent bread and coffee.

To the south, across Duboce Park and past the verdant tree-lined streets of Duboce Triangle, lies the Market Street corridor, where you will find numerous MUNI connections and countless eateries, bars, and boutiques as well as Whole Foods and other grocery stores. Market Street offers fine dining, exotic cocktails, burgers, sushi, Indian cuisine, and everything in between. Observe all the action from the deck of the Lookout (the gay bar at the corner of Noe and Market) or take in a leisurely brunch on the sunny, landscaped veranda of Cafe Flor. On Wednesdays afternoons, stock up for dinner with fresh locally-grown produce at the bustling Farmers Market on Noe @ Market.

605 Waller is also a very short 1-stop ride to Cole Valley and Golden Gate Park (the N-Judah MUNI enters the tunnel right at the Duboce Park stop).

605 Waller is conveniently-located, no matter where you work. If you drive to the Peninsula or the East Bay, you'll appreciate the Octavia Street onramp just a few blocks away. Getting to downtown is also an easy commute, whether you drive, take a car, ride MUNI, bicycle, or walk. It’s all a breeze — there are virtually no hills to navigate. Ford Go-Bike is half a block away. Access to the northern side of the city, including Crissy Field, the Marina, North Beach and Pacific Heights, is an easy 15 minute drive. There are tech-shuttles nearby.

With a Walkscore of 98 and a TransitScore of 100, you couldn't wish for a more central and convenient location than 605 Waller -- welcome to this fantastic neighborhood and enjoy your new home!
