Sherwood Forest is perched on the southwest slope of Mount Davidson, the City’s highest hill at 927 feet. This tiny neighborhood is patterned around the tale of Robin Hood with street names such as Lansdale, Dalewood and, of course, Robinhood, the highest residential street in the City. Original globe streetlights still grace the small community thoroughfares, which feel a world apart from its more urban neighborhoods. There are only single-family homes in this small enclave of about 200 homes, some dating back to the 1930s by famed architects Julia Morgan, Timothy Pflueger and Harold G. Stoner. From colonials to manor houses, the homes reflect an elegant and serene atmosphere. South of Sherwood Forest lies Westwood Highlands, another small enclave. Many streets end with “wood” (Brentwood, Hazelwood, Burlwood), thus providing the neighborhood’s nickname “the woods.” Marked with obscure wrought iron signs, Westwood Highlands has 283 residences built in the late 1920s with the look and feel of an English village. The neighborhood association dates back to 1924 when the Residential Development Company of San Francisco established Westwood Highlands as one of the earliest planned residential communities in the country. Most residents are long-term and turnover is rare. Both hillside neighborhoods benefit from lovely views. The Mount Davidson Stairway Walk meanders through a variety of flora and views of neighboring West Portal, where shops and restaurants can be found.
