Car: Recommended

This house is centrally located to restaurants, museums, airport, park, marina, great restaurants, downtown. It is about 10-15 minutes to Coronado or mission beach. It is three blocks away from interstate 5. San Diego is a hard city to not have a car in but this location would offer a lot even without a car. No walk is very long except for the beach. The Gaslamp and ballpark are about a mile and a half away. The Horton plaza mall is about a mile away with movie theaters there. A walk through Balboa Park puts the zoo and the museums about a mile and a half away.The bay and embarcadero are less than a mile away. There is a city bike sharing program in which you can rent bikes with a credit card and drop them off at many convenient locations. The bike kiosk is just 3 blocks from the house at the corner of hawthorn and 4 th ave.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: I am a native San Diegan. We purchased this property 9 years ago because we love the location. My husband and I plan to live there in 10 years. The neighborhood is now a Mecca for fine dining with lots of hip new restaurants, funky old restaurants, breweries and bars . I like to garden, go on bike rides, and have friends over for nice dinners. I am an interior designer and had a lot of fun putting the interior together. It's comfortable, cheerful, and romantic .

Why the Owner Chose Bankers Hill (Park West), San Diego, CA, USA:
To be honest, if I was coming to San Diego for beaches only, I'd rent a place right on the beach. However if you're here for some beach, but the zoo, downtown, Little Italy, Old Town, Balboa Park, Coronado, then this location is unsurpassed. Who wants to spend all your time in a car? Literally you can walk 4-8 blocks and get to great restaurants, the park, downtown and the harbor. If you want to stay in, the place is very comfy, nice bay breezes, good light. Most of my guests say the airplanes add an element of excitement, noticeable the first day and after that forgotten. Not to mention when you fly in, its less than a 10 minute ride to the house.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
I'd say the fact that it is a single family dwelling in mid city makes it more unique. Then add the Mexican flavor decor which puts you in the mood for San Diego's ethnic roots. The airplanes add to the excitement of travel. It is almost 100 years old but has the comfort of your favorite old shoes. Sometimes parking is more challenging but the garage guarantees you a spot each and every time.And you can have a successful car free visit to San Diego in this location as well. Uber rides to downtown are $5 and walking is 15 minutes.The city bus has a stop right across the street and the trolley and train are also walking distance away.
