"Cool Century Old Homes and Great Schools"

10th Avenue is where you will find the highest priced home sales in all of Inner Richmond in the last year. In fact, the two highest home sales happened here. (There were a couple of properties that sold for more, but they were multi-family homes, not single family homes the way these are.)

10th Avenue is a great Inner Richmond street running north south from Golden Gate Park in the south to Mountain Lake Park in the Presidio on the north. On the southern end of 19th Avenue where the mostly highly priced homes are is where the neighborhood also happens to be oldest. The old homes here are a century old, dating from the period after the Great SF Quake of 1906 which brought residents farther west and coincided with the SF World’s Fair of 1912.

That’s the period these most expensive homes date to. A couple of these homes along 10th sold last year for about $2.2 million. They are attractive older homes that stand alone (as opposed to being pushed up close to one another as many homes are here). These homes are usually two-story walk-ups but they have walkways in between them and generally feel more like individual homes than apartments.

Much of the rest of the street, however, is pretty typical of the Inner Richmond and much of the rest of northern San Francisco. It is basically filled with three story walk-up Victorians.

One of the advantages of living in the Richmond District are the strong public schools. McCoppin Elementary, Roosevelt Middle School and Washington High have APIs of 7, 8 and 7 respectively, pretty strong for any city really.

As to crime, 10th Avenue is a relatively safe area for SF. The 2 dozen assaults that have taken place within half a mile of 10th in the last 6 months have taken place to the east of here and mostly along Geary. Burglary and robbery are more evenly spread with the 5 dozen burglaries happening throughout the neighborhood and the dozen robberies mostly taking place on Geary.

Given the great transportation system, the relatively lower rents of Inner Richmond (you can find a one-bedroom for $1800 and a two-bedroom for $2400), I would actually say that when you put it all together 10th Avenue in specific and Inner Richmond in general is one of the sweet spots in San Francisco where it is relatively affordable and actually livable for families.
