University Heights homes for sale come in many forms. Cottages, apartments, condominiums, and single-family houses can all be found in this market. Because University Heights was first developed in 1880, the area is even home to a number of impressive historic homes. The area between Madison Avenue and Monroe Avenue, for example, has been designated as a historic district by the City of San Diego for its 1920s Spanish Colonial Revival bungalows. As such, buyers will find that many architectural flavors comprise University Heights, ensuring that every buyer can find a home that fits their needs and tastes.
Prices for University Heights real estate start as low as $300,000 and can extend well beyond a million depending on the size, luxury, age, and location of the property. On the high end of the market, discover incredible historic beauties. English Tudor Revival homes are steeped in old-world beauty and custom charm. Expansive Craftsman designs feature sunny interiors and handsome brick fireplaces. Inside, many of these old homes have been updated to contain contemporary kitchens with granite countertops and modern appliances, ensuring that these houses are every bit as practical as they are beautiful.
On the low end of the market, it is possible to invest in a comfortable condo or townhome in University Heights. While townhomes and condos both offer the convenience of a building manager who looks after exterior maintenance and maintains shared spaces, they differ a bit in layout. For buyers who want to enjoy a private outdoor space of their own and aren’t interested in having neighbors above and below them, a townhouse is ideal. In many ways, a townhome is like owning a house, the main difference being, you share one or two walls with your neighbors.
Condos, however, do not have their own yards. These cozy apartments can be perfect for buyers who aren’t interested in maintaining a yard or a large space. Often, living in these smaller spaces allows residents freedom to explore their surroundings more fully than those who are committed to more maintenance intensive properties. With a broad selection of both condos and townhomes in this market, buyers have plenty of opportunity to explore both housing types and choose the one that fits.
Life In University Heights
The name University Heights evokes the mental picture of a residential neighborhood high on the hill that overlooks a thriving campus full of bright young minds and fresh ideas. However, there is no university in or adjacent to this neighborhood. The name for this San Diego neighborhood came from a plan developed in the 1880s to build a university in the area.
University Heights is located between the San Diego neighborhoods of Hillcrest and North Park and is bounded by Texas Street to the east, Lincoln Avenue to the south, Highway 163 to the west, and Highway 8 to the north. Because of its location near Highways 8, 163, and 805, residents will find that whether they’re traveling to the Gaslamp Quarter, the International Airport, the Pacific Ocean, or Mission Trails Regional Park, the drive is quick and convenient.
Home buyers will also find plenty of laid-back eateries and hip entertainment places throughout the area. Within the neighborhood of University Heights, the two main retail corridors can be found along El Cajon Boulevard and Park Boulevard. El Cajon Boulevard is where residents will find many of the services in the area. The Kindred Hospital San Diego can be found there in addition to auto repair companies, salons, fitness centers, chiropractic offices, and more. Along Park Boulevard, locals will find a fun and diverse selection of bars, restaurants, eateries, and entertainment options. Flavors from all over the world can be sampled on Park Boulevard.
