For those of you that aren’t familiar with San Francisco, there is a huge chunk of the northwest part of the city that is owned by the Federal Government. It is called the Presidio. It is beautiful and green and smells like Eucalyptus. {if you’ve ever driven around near the GG Bridge you were probably driving in the Presidio.} It used to be a military base a long time ago so there is all this old military housing and buildings left on it. George Lucas made this big deal a few years ago and rennovated some of the buildings and has some studios there {he couldn’t buy it, just lease.} It is funny that in a city where land is so precious there is a huge amount of land but no one can really use it or develop it. {I will admit it makes me happy that all the millionaires can’t buy up all the land and houses.}

If money were no object and I was raising a family here in the city, I would live in the Presidio. The old officer’s houses have been rennovated there are big green lawns and beautiful wood floors and views of the Golden Gate Bridge and all the homes have at least three to seven bedrooms. Which is why they now rent them out for a ton of money {$4,000-$10,000/month}. If you are lucky enough to have that kind of budget, take a look here.

    They really are so pretty. They are the only houses in SF with real yards and lawns.

    After my first (and only) visit to SF during college, I vowed that one day I would live in the Presidio.

    I did live on the Presidio. OK, OK, it was what, like 28 years ago when it was still at least partially an Army facility. I was 4. I remember my room had 9 or 10 windows on it and I could see the bridge from my top bunk bed. The pics look way pretty. Thanks for reminding me of the one year I spent in SF!
