Almost all locations in Golden Hill and South Park are affected by airplane noise. On the other hand, the airport is very convenient being less than a ten-minute drive away. Golden Hill, which is less than a mile from the heart of downtown, is a funky, eclectic neighborhood full of historic homes mixed with new and modern architecture. Many small markets, coffee shops, and restaurants dot the neighborhood. The cottage is located one block away from the South East corner of Balboa Park. Starbucks is steps away, while Giorgino's Cheese steaks as well as Mexican food is just around the corner. The local market, also steps away, has a very good wine and beer selection. The many restaurants (too many to list), bars, and art galleries of South Park start 3 short blocks North of the cottage. A San Diego landmark, The Turf Club, is three blocks West on 25th Street and so is Luigi's Pizza, which has been repeatedly featured on the Food Network. Just off 25th is some of the best Russian food in town at Pectopah. An undiscovered jewel is the Balboa Park Golf Course with its clubhouse only two blocks away. This course was established during the heyday of golf course design in the nineteen twenties. It is a municipal course and is well maintained with mature landscaping. Even if you don’t golf, go for a cheap breakfast at the clubhouse and enjoy some of the most gorgeous views of the city. On Saturday mornings, there is a farmers market starting on the next block that features lots of local products and produce.
Year Purchased: 1996
About the owner: Moved to San Diego to go to school in 1987 and never left. I have a Bachelors and Masters Degree in Mechanical Engineering from San Diego State University. My plan to is to travel to as many countries in the world as I can before I croak.
Why the Owner Chose Golden Hill: I used to live near this property when I was going to school, and back then it was a mess. I always saw what is could be, with some TLC. When the chance came up to buy it, I did. Boy did I have my work cut out for me.
The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow: This cottage is very cute and has great morning light.
