Balboa Terrace is a quiet neighborhood in the Twin Peaks district that borders the Lake Merced district. Named for two hills reaching approximately 910 feet each, Twin Peaks offers the most panoramic views of the city and the bay. Some homes on the northern crest of Twin Peaks resemble Spanish villas, while the eastern side has mainly apartment houses. In recent decades, the southern slopes have seen development of single-family homes that face San Bruno Mountain and the ocean. Mt. Davidson, at approximately 940 feet, is the city’s highest point and is located just south of Twin Peaks.
