Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

About: My wife and I are both from Orange County, California and return home quite frequently. I am an engineer, a photographer and maker. She is a digital media planner and wedding coordinator. Between the two of us we are extremely busy and use VRBO extensively, so we decided to open up our homes to others to enjoy as well.

Why Northblock Lofts, San Diego, CA, USA:
Why NOT this property? The location is so perfect for those who must experience San Diego at its best. When the opportunity came up to buy this loft, we said YES in a heartbeat. Urban living with no car required!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our unit is located in the heart of Gaslamp, however it faces AWAY from the main street, allowing less noise to filtrate through the walls. We particularly appreciate the tall ceiling and window that make our loft feel open and cheery.
