The Castro district is a world-renowned neighborhood that played an integral part in the modern gay rights movement.
While the San Francisco multiple listing service refers to the neighborhood as “Eureka Valley”, the world knows and loves it as The Castro, the heart of San Francisco. The Castro district offers a diverse mix of homes for sale, with a wide variety of home styles and property types from large single family Victorians to modern condos and tenancies-in-common. Multi-Unit buildings and small apartment buildings are also found in the neighborhood along the commercial corridors.
Homes for sale in this real estate sub-district are bounded roughly by Market street to the north and west sides, 22nd street to the south, and Valencia and Church streets to the east. Both Castro and Market streets are home to numerous shops, restaurants, and both straight and gay bars.
Serviced by the 24, and 37 bus lines, the area is served by two muni subway stations, as well as the F-line with it’s collection of historic streetcars. Homes for sale in the Castro district often have a rich history, as the area was a predominantly working class Irish neighborhood before being gentrified by gay men in the 1970s. It was the epicenter of the gay rights revolution that began in the 1970′s, led by pioneers such as Harvey Milk (a neighborhood school carries his name today).
People from all walks of life travel worldwide to the Castro and many fall in love with the central location, good weather, and sense of community.
