Built 1939, this downtown gem has rare outdoor space with a beautiful fire-pit & rose garden & is ideally located walking distance to Little Italy, Gaslamp & Balboa Park. Huge outdoor space perfect for a pet and kids. Enjoy a pear from the tree!
This home is truly a downtown gem. Ideally located between beautiful Balboa Park & Little Italy, Bankers Hill is a local favorite. Filled with historic homes, local restaurants and bars, and just a short walk to the myriad of restaurants in Little Italy, this cottage is the perfect home base for your San Diego experience.
The Cottage was originally built in 1939 as migrant worker bungalows and it comes with lots of history and even more charm. The interior is around 500 sq feet and is a fully equipped living space featuring art from a local photographer, simple, classic furniture and a chic character. Enjoy fresh picked fruit from one of the many fruit trees on property such as pears and oranges.
The highlight of this gem is definitely the spacious fenced in outdoor space complete with a rose garden, fire-pit with sitting area as well as a raised dining table. The yard is also perfect for your furry friend. Space like this is rare in downtown San Diego, and we are thrilled to show you our little slice of paradise.
So spark the fire-pit, open a bottle of wine and enjoy the plane-spotting! Keep your eye out for the 777 British Airways arriving from London late in the afternoon. Cheers!
