3014 California St., San Franciso's Pacific Heights

Living in the San Francisco neighborhood of Pacific Heights is expensive. Home prices average $3.1 million, and some mansions price for as high as $13.5 million. But for less than $2 million, we found three excellent homes in Pacific Heights.

Much of the affluent neighborhood was built after the 1906 earthquake, although some Victorian homes built before then still exist. It's a scenic area with stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and the San Francisco Bay. And luxury abounds in the district, which embodies Hollywood's vision of the city: blocks of colorful wedding-cake mansions from which you can see for miles.
