Located on a bluff above Old Town, west of Hillcrest and overlooking Mission Valley and Presidio Park, Mission Hills is one of San Diego’s oldest and most desirable neighborhoods. The architecture is distinctive, reflecting Craftsman, Spanish and California Bungalow styles often built in the early 1900’s.
First subdivided in 1908, many of the homes were designed by premier architects. The homes range from small cottages to estate-size homes set on winding, tree-lined streets.
Home prices vary widely, as you will find serious "fixers" to extensively renovated estates with views and historical significance. Mission Hills is an eclectic mix of home owners demographics, home styles and price ranges.
If a neighborhood is what you are seeking, look no farther. The business district of Mission Hills features quaint shops, restaurants, and coffee shops, and enjoys proximity to Presidio Park, Mission Hills Park (Pioneer Park), public tennis courts, Mission Hills Nursery, dating back to 1910, and a public library.
In addition to public schools such as Grant (grades K-8), you also have private and parochial school choices St. Vincent de Paul School and Francis Parker Elementary.
Mission Hills is centrally located within a 10 minute drive to the beach, San Diego International Airport and points of interest in Balboa Park, Fashion Valley and Mission Valley. There is also convenient access to major San Diego freeways Interstate 5, Interstate 8 and Highway 163.
