Those moving to the San Diego area, yearning to find an well-established neighborhood with all the natural beauty the city has to offer, won’t want to leave Point Loma off their house hunting list.
Point Loma is the peninsula bordered on the west by the mighty Pacific Ocean, which continues to sculpt dramatic sandstone cliffs — one of the few places in California where it’s possible to find dinosaur fossils — and on the east by Old Town and San Diego Bay, where beautiful homes follow the slopes down to the bay waters. To the north, the San Diego River has created wetlands areas, many of which have been filled through the years, but evidence of which can be seen in nature preserves like Famosa Slough.
Before European settlement, the peninsula that became Point Loma lacked any established communities due to a lack of fresh water. Today, it hosts not only the kind of community house hunters crave, but also Point Loma Nazarene University, two military bases, a national cemetery, a national monument, and plenty of natural areas for residents to enjoy.
If that isn’t enough to tempt you into checking out the real estate of Point Loma, here are five more reasons to explore your options.View More
