The Talmadge Real Estate Market

Talmadge was established in 1925 by real estate developers Roy and Guy Lichty. Today, this special hidden neighborhood is mostly residential with an eclectic mixture of well-maintained homes, that wind along charming tree lined streets. Talmadge real estate is comprised of a mixture of single-family homes and mid-to-large apartment complexes. Once a neighborhood of cottages and bungalows, perched on a mesa overlooking Mission Valley, this neighborhood is now littered with a variety of different styles, such as:

  • Spanish Revival
  • California Bungalows
  • Cape Cod Cottages
  • Normandy Style homes

At the lower end of the Talmadge real estate market, you can find a three-bedroom townhouse for just over $400,000, for your growing family. If you'd like something more elaborate, the neighborhood also has homes that vary in price from $800,000 to over $1 million.

Talmadge Community Highlights:

Talmadge real estate is tucked among hills and canyons east of Kensington and also sits adjacent to the City Heights neighborhood. It falls within the City Council District 9; however, its boundaries are several and vary depending on districts and community organizations.

A unique feature of this neighborhood is known as the "Gates of Talmadge." These eight wrought iron gates mark the boundary of the original Talmadge Park housing development built in the 1920s. These lovely gates are similar to other Spanish revival designs created in California during this era, with fanciful curves and shapes that are reminiscent of elegance and charm.

It takes a village to keep a neighborhood safe and running. The neighborhood of Talmadge has multiple organizations that help do exactly this. If you choose to move into this neighborhood, there will be no shortage of volunteer experiences you can jump into. You'll make new friends while making Talmadge a better and brighter place to live. Some community organizations include:

  • Talmadge Neighborhood Welcome
  • Talmadge Community Council
