When the Twin Peaks Tunnel opened in 1918 allowing greater access to the city's western neighborhoods, many prescient and enterprising developers grabbed at the opportunity to create new, modern model home communities. In Mount Davidson Manor, you will find the strong influence of one man, Fernando Nelson, who built many of San Francisco's communities in a career that spanned seven decades. In fact, Nelson and his sons are credited with building more than 4,000 homes in the city from 1876 to just after World War II. In Mount Davidson Manor you will find many Spanish Mediterranean-style single family homes, with red tiled roofs that add some color to the neighborhood even as summer's fogs blow in. There are also several newer condos and homes to choose from. Several of the winding streets boast beautiful, hilly views. Residents enjoy their proximity to Ocean Avenue's commercial strip, which offers all of the everyday conveniences. A Muni streetcar runs right down Ocean Avenue as well, for access to downtown or south to the Balboa Park BART station. At the southwest corner of the neighborhood, tucked behind Aptos Middle School, is a playground popular with area families. There are facilities for tennis, baseball, and a new jungle gym. Watch out depending on time of day -- you might find yourself in the middle of 7th grade P.E. all over again, and no one wants that.
