The Presidio Residences offer remarkable beauty in a historic setting. Few residential areas can match the sheer physical attractiveness of the Presidio. More than half of the park is open space – forests, beaches, dunes, native plant communities and coastal bluffs. The park is dotted with spectacular features like Baker Beach, historic Presidio Forest, Mountain Lake, El Polin Valley and Lobos Creek. The Presidio also offers sweeping views of the ocean and bay, the Golden Gate, the Marin Headlands and surrounding cities.
This place of incomparable beauty has played a major role in local and national history. The Presidio was a military post for more than 200 years before becoming a national park in 1994 and boasts more than 500 historic structures featuring several of the most important architectural styles of the last century. In 1962, the Presidio was named a National Historic Landmark District. One of the exciting parts of being a Presidio resident is knowing that lease revenues go toward preserving a historic national park.
