The small neighborhood of Cow Hollow is just inland from the Marina District in San Francisco, California, and is home to approximately 8,000 residents. The area was originally home to a small fisherman village and lot of cow pasture for the local farmers, which is where the name comes from. When the neighboring residents began to complain about the smell of the cattle, the pasture land was turned into the affluent neighborhood it is today. The real estate in Cow Hollow is made up of many well preserved Edwardian and Victorian style homes. Although some still remain single family homes, many have been split into smaller apartments or condos. In fact, 41% of the homes in the Cow Hollow are apartments or townhomes. Many of the homes were built before 1939, but there was also a boom of houses built between 1940 and 1969.
