San Francisco is also the location of a large variety of homes, both historic and modern. There are unique and prized small mansions and ultra modern apartments and penthouses, usually featuring absolutely stunning views. The area is much more compact (like Manhattan) than Los Angeles and is built around people and buildings, rather than a bunch of highways (you do not need to own a car if you live in downtown San Francisco). This city truly has its own special charm that attracts both residents and tourists. Some examples of special homes that were sold there in 2022 are listed below.
