Questions about the NoPa or San Francisco real estate market?
The North of Panhandle area, or NOPA, is more than an acronym. It’s a thriving neighborhood. In fact it is one of the city’s most in-demand places to live. Situated just north of Golden Gate Park’s Panhandle, and abutted by the Divisadero corridor, there is always something to do, and often within walking distance. Here you are central to everything, with easy freeway access, several MUNI lines, and plenty of bicycle routes.
The Panhandle and Golden Gate Park are virtually outside the front door, providing a green urban oasis perfect for dog walking, exercising, enjoying the world-class museums, or just getting out in nature. The Panhandle also offers a children’s playground, newly renovated basketball hoops, and open areas for material arts practice and exercise.
NOPA is nestled between Cole Valley, Haight-Ashbury, and Laurel Village, USF and UCSF. West NOPA, bordered by Masonic, Fulton, Fell and Stanyan, enjoys the benefits of a central location, while retaining the feel of a quiet enclave. NOPA homes are a mixture of condominiums, multi-unit buildings, and single family homes.
Young professionals, students, families and long-time residents fill up NOPA’s many Victorian, Edwardian, and contemporary dwellings. There are plenty of opportunities to meet your neighbors, be it at Sunday’s Divisadero Farmer’s Market or the bi-monthly Divisadero Art Walk. During Halloween some streets are blocked off for the local trick-or-treaters. The are a couple of neighborhood associations to become involved in: NOPNA – North of Panhandle Neighborhood Association organizes events and keeps everyone informed about neighborhood news. There is a neighborhood association for West NOPA too: ProSF. The neighborhood even has it’s own parents’ group.
Services and entertainment are easily accessed, making it easy to leave the car in garage. In addition to Divisadero’s many trendy cafes, clubs and shops, you can do grocery shopping at Lucky Center on Fulton, hit up Broderick Place for specialty deli goods, or get a wonderful selection of organic foods at Gus’ Market and Whole Foods.
USF’s Koret Center gym includes an Olympic size pool and offers residents special rates. Yoga studios, personal training gyms, hair/nail salons, and restaurants are all a short stroll away.
In NOPA it’s possible to get a full education from preschool to grad school and not have to leave a 10 block radius! Pacific Primary is an excellent pre-school. New Traditions is the neighborhood elementary school. If you are around at 9:30AM each morning dozens of students can be seen walking or biking to school with their parents. SF Day school is one of the best K-8 private schools in the city, also within walking distance. City College, John Adams campus, is right on Masonic (the old location for Lowell High School). Urban High School is a private school a few blocks way. The public high school, Wallenberg, is right on Masonic. USF, a private Jesuit University is at the top of the hill on Fulton.
There are many restaurants. Here are a few: Little Star Pizza for awesome deep dish pizza in a fun atmosphere, Bistro Central Parc (delicious French cuisine), La Urbana (Mexican), Gambrinus (Euro comfort food), Barrel Head Brew House, NOPA, Bar Crudo, Maven, Green Chile Kitchen, Tsunami Sushi, Brenda’s, Jannah Mediterranean, and more. Don’t forget the Green Chile Kitchen pie shop for dessert.
Personal: I have lived and worked as a Realtor in NOPA for 25 years. When I think of NOPA I think of the people I see outside: parents with babies in their strollers, older kids on bikes, teens on skateboards, college students going to classes, seniors like my mom with canes or walkers, and all the other ages in-between enjoying our neighborhood. I have raised my family here – my son learned to ride his bike at the Panhandle and was a regular at the playground.
We go on family bike rides through the park to the Ocean. I love that my next door neighbors are also friends. We have shared New Year’s day brunches, egg dying in the back yard for Easter, chalk art and jump rope on the sidewalk, home-made baked goods, and walks together. And for the neighbors whom I know less well, from passing them on the street as I walked the neighborhood, I always get a smile and a wave. NOPA is a picturesque, friendly neighborhood – and great place to call home!
