“Why we loved living at 56 Arleta”

We loved our cozy home in Visitacion Valley. We loved the arches, the lights, the floors, the crown molding and the vintage tile bathroom and kitchen. We loved our view of San Bruno Mountain from our dining room and from our back patio. We loved being able to walk through the greenways when going on walks through our neighborhood. We loved the variety of parks available to take our baby too and being able to walk to the library. We loved being so close to McLaren park- especially when fun events like the Soap Box Derby were happening. Soaking up the views of bay from the warmer side of the city was a wonderful way to spend some time. We loved our friendly neighborhood with neighbors who look out for each other. We loved our little bodega, coffee shop and diner all within walking distance. The nearby Muni lines made it so easy to explore the rest of the city. A quick ride to Cortland Ave brought us to many tasty restaurants and breweries. We loved the view of our backyard from the bedroom windows. We loved all the light let in by the skylights. We loved all the space for storage and activities in the yard. We loved our little chicken coop and all the springtime flowers and greenery. Deciding to move away from our first home was not an easy decision to make but the career opportunities were ultimately too good to pass up. We hope to find buyers who will continue to fill 56 Arleta with love, happy memories as well as appreciate her vintage aspects.

Neighborhood Gallery

56 Arleta Avenue

Visitacion Valley colloquially referred to as Viz Valley, is a neighborhood located in the southeastern quadrant of San Francisco, California.

Visitacion Valley is roughly defined by McLaren Park and Gleneagles Golf Course to the West, Mansell Blvd and Portola to the north, Bayview Hill and Candlestick Cove to the east, and the San Francisco / San Mateo County line to the south. The streets of this neighborhood straddle the border between San Francisco and Daly City, hence partially blending with the adjacent Daly City neighborhood of Bayshore. The grounds of the Cow Palace, straddling the San Francisco/Daly City border, are partially within Visitacion Valley.

For many San Franciscans, stories of Visitacion Valley revolve around concerts or the circus at the Cow Palace, memories of the Geneva Drive-In, or sandwiches grabbed at the Piccolo Pete deli on the way to Candlestick for a Giants or 49ers game. But the neighborhood’s history dates back much further, from its early Yelamu settlements, to its mid-19th century truck farms and roadhouses providing hospitality to travelers up and down the peninsula.
