Mission Hills is a legacy neighborhood of San Diego, home to some of the oldest & best preserved architecture of the past 100 years. Homes here have a pleasant mix of styles including Spanish & Mission Revival, Craftsman, and Prairie, all positioned inside tree-lined streets and pleasantly landscaped lots. Canyons filled with native coastal chaparral and lemon-scented eucalyptus trees funnel ocean breezes into the neighborhood. Conveniently located with easy freeway access to Interstate 5, Interstate 8 and Hwy 163, the neighborhood is 5 minutes from downtown San Diego and San Diego International Airport, and 10 minutes to the golden beaches of Coronado, Mission Beach and La Jolla.
Mission Hills has a thriving business district that includes the West Washington St. hub and the charming W. Lewis St. buildings.
The architectural provenance is impressive, where you will find homes designed by William Templeton Johnson, Richard Requa, Nathan Rigdon, Emmor Brooke Weaver, Lilian Rice, Joel Brown, William Hebbard, Lloyd Ruocco, Homer Delawie, Sim Bruce Richards and John Lloyd Wright.
Residents pride themselves on the friendliness of the neighborhood. There are 2 private prep schools: Francis Parker and St. Vincents. The integrity of the neighborhood will remain intact because of the hundreds of historically designated homes as well as the 281 homes within the Sunset Blvd and Ft. Stockton Line historical districts.
