South San Francisco

Diamond Heights/Peck's Lot

Diamond Heights and Peck’s Lot are a pair of small sub-districts located in and adjacent to the larger Paradise Valley neighborhood at the base of San Bruno Mountain. Despite its diminutive size, the neighborhood includes a diverse inventory of single-family homes and apartment buildings, with properties ranging in age from 10 to 100 years. In fact, Peck’s Lot, which was purchased by E.C. Peck of the San Francisco Travel Agency Peck-Judah in 1907, was the first subdivision in South San Francisco. Much of Diamond Heights/Peck’s Lot, however, is comprised of Pecks Heights, a development completed in 1955. These homes are generally modest, with two or three bedrooms and 1,000 to 1,500 square feet of space. Added to the hodgepodge of older (and newer) properties in Peck’s Lot, they make this neighborhood one of South City’s most reliably entry level.

For these relatively modest prices ($700,000 to $1 million for recently sold single-family homes), residents and new buyers enjoy proximity to Highway 101, the Hillside Rec Center and biotech companies and relative proximity to downtown’s Grand Avenue — and vintage homes that often have been in the hands of a single owner for decades, creating great opportunities for buyers looking to update and remodel to suit their own vision.
