View as Map

Here's all you need to know: According to the AccuWeather Platinum weather app, the weekend weather in San Francisco is supposed to be sunny and in the mid 70s.

It's this time of year that we start dreaming about relaxing in a garden of our own, and that kind of feature is somewhat hard to come by within the city limits. Or is it? We've put together a list of the best backyards on the market in SF right now.

Outer Parkside: The fieldstone barbecue and large, level lot caught our eye, but the listing sealed the deal by calling out three decks and an outdoor shower (perfect for an après surf rinse).

Forest Hill: In this drought year, hardscape is appreciated. That's why the patio of this home is included here. The home's backyard is mostly deck and an undeveloped (but potential-filled) garden; however, the stone side patio that's surrounded by trees is lovely.

5. 179 Douglass St.

179 Douglass St #2
San Francisco, CA 94114

Castro: It's a rare condo that has such a compelling outdoor space. This one is in the upper unit of an Art Deco building, and it overlooks and shares a beautiful green patch that includes a lemon tree.

6. 2317 Webster St.

2317 Webster St
San Francisco, CA 94115

Pacific Heights: It's not that this yard is overly large or lush, but it has trees that will support and shade a hammock. Add to that a mossy stone patio, and you have a yard that's list-worthy.

7. 1015 Rhode Island St.

1015 Rhode Island St
San Francisco, CA 94107

Potrero Hill: Not many backyards feature a great view, but that's what living on a hillside can get you. This yard has an elevated patio that looks over Twin Peaks.

127 Central Ave

Haight Ashbury: This TIC has a shared garden that gives its landscape a modernist treatment. It has multiple levels (deck in front and in back) to provide several al fresco seating options.

9. 647 4th Ave.

647 4th Ave
San Francisco, CA 94118

Richmond: It's not as if this yard is overly landscaped, but it makes the list because it's large and because the lower level condo it's attached to has direct access to it.

10. 259 Faxon Ave.

Ingleside: This is the view from the sliding glass doors in the master bedroom. Wouldn't you like to wake up to a walk-out yard? Thought so.
