              Location

              University Heights is a people friendly neighborhood that is centrally located and close to most of San Diego's main attractions, malls, universities, beaches, and military bases. There are a multitude of neighborhood restaurants and coffee houses within walking distance.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1983

              About the owner: We currently live in the front house of the property and have been in our home since 1982. We found this lovely property on the way to a Charger game and couldn't resist the custom Spanish style of this 1920's era two on one. We started out renting and we were fortunate to have the opportunity to purchase the property. We were even more fortunate to be married in the back yard; all six kids and one happy St. Bernard. We both grew up elsewhere in California, but we met in San Diego and have lived in our home for 30+ years and can not imagine leaving. The back house (casita) was a rental when we bought and was kept as a rental for most of our time here. Recently, we remodeled and upgraded the cottage into the casita.

              Why the Owner Chose University Heights:
              We bought here because our work was nearby and schools for our children were close. We are now retired and our children have left the roost. Our home is situated right in the middle of everything that is inviting in San Diego. Neighborhood restaurants and coffee houses are within four blocks. We are very close to high-end shopping malls, the Gaslamp District downtown, Balboa Park, the Zoo, beaches, ball parks, and just 1+ hour from the beautiful and very quaint historic mountain town of Julian.

              The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
              The casita is located in a quiet neighborhood that is walking friendly and very close to freeway access in all directions as well as public transportation. Popular Points of Interest (POI) and their distances from the Casita can be viewed on our map.
