"The Sweet-Spot of San Francisco"

Lake St runs alond the southern edge of the Presidio from the end of Clay and Sacramento Sts (Presidio Heights) into Sea Cliff. While the houses are expensive they're a steal compared to either Sea Cliff or Presidio Heights.

Lake St. has a bicycle path and many access points to the Presidio and the neighborhood parks that dot its southern edge -- Mountain Lkae Park and Julius Kahn for example. You can walk to Clement St. with its perferct combination of Irish Pubs and Chinese Restauants.

On the Eastern end of Lake St. you can walk to upscale shopping along Sacramento St. and Laurel Heights. On the Western end you can walk to Baker Beach.

Lake St. is family central by San Francisco standards (perhaps Noe is the next best example). There is some nightlife on Clement St and more a short drive away on Union St or Chestnut St. it's not a hot spot.
