North Park

North Park is a diverse community centrally located in San Diego. Close to Balboa Park, it is home to many highly sought out neighborhoods such as Burlingame, Altadena and Morley Field.  Within the past 5 years, North Park has experienced much growth and high demand for housing.  Residents lucky enough to live there have just a short walk from hip eclectic restaurants and breweries.  The North Park sign on University Ave serves as a benchmark for the center of the community.

North Park’s neighborhoods are a mix of various architectural styles largely  Craftsman Bungalows and California Bungalows.  Many of these homes were designed and built by David Owen Dryden and the community has embraced the homes along 28th and Pershing Street, as well as Upas and Landis street, as the Dryden Historic District.

North Park’s home prices are quite affordable.  To many people’s surprise, a one bedroom condo can sell for as low as $50,000 and as high as the mid $300,000’s.  Single-family homes in North Park start around the mid $100,000’s and sell as high as $1.5M for a beautiful Craftsman home in the delightful district of Burlingame and/or Morley Field.

The Farmer’s market is also a wonderful regular outing for residents.  Held every Thursday at the intersection of University and 32nd streets, the market features over 35 local vendors and fabulous locally grown produce, flowers and a wide array of homemade arts and crafts.  If you are lucky, you might even catch some live music.

North Park is one of those special places that takes a lot of pride in its history, culture, and residents.  Every December residents hold their annual holiday parade.  With its strong sense of community, fantastic variety of restaurants, diverse architecture and close proximity to most of San Diego, most residents would say they would never want to live anywhere else.
