"For Wealthy Doctors and Their Families"

You will find not just one $4.5 million home on Cherry Street, but two. What makes this such a high cost area?

Partly it is, of course, the big old historic homes that are right here. This is a neighborhood that got built out in the decade after the Great Quake of 1906, and those that came here were largely the really well off. It has remained an area for those to this day.

That is why you will find large mansions occupying Cherry Street. From the Presidio to California Street, that is what you will find. These are those large beautiful imposing structures that feel like they could equally house offices as they could a rich family. As far as I know most of them here are residential rather than commercial.

This would actually be a good place for doctors who have made it and are teaching at one of the many medical facilities that are just at the southern end of this location.

Overall with the great schools and proximity to Presidio and Golden Gate Park, this is a great place to raise a family if you can afford it.

"Very Nice Houses"

Cherry Street is like the cherry on top of an ice cream sundae, this street is really beautiful and it has beautiful houses. Each house is unique and has a quality of elegance, yet home-like, feel to them. They are mostly three stories high and most of them either have some type of plant in front of them or near them . The plants really liven up the place with their deep and earthy colors. Cherry street is also a nice, wide open road. Cherry is actually right next to the Presidio of San Francisco. There is a golf course, baseball field, and other facilities in the area. There is a school nearby and there are also a few bus stops nearby. This would be an ideal place to raise a family.
