About the owner: We are a family of 6 that lived in this house for close to 10 years. We loved the house and the neighborhood, however, we had to move to another house in the San Diego area to take advantage of that area's special needs school for our youngest daughter.
Why the Owner Chose Mission Hills: The property is situated in one of the oldest neighborhoods in San Diego. We originally moved to this house because we enjoyed the convenience of the neighborhood being close to the downtown area. Balboa Park and the beaches. We loved the feel of the neighborhood and the unique Spanish, Craftsman and Contempory architecture.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We have kept the original hardware floors and kept the high arched living room ceiling. Being on top of a hill we continually feel the warm ocean beeezes so we do not need to use our central air conditioning very often. Our backyard area is bigger than most in this neighborhood so we landscaped it so there would be plenty of room for our kids to play and enjoy.
