For those that live in Point Loma, or are frequent visitors, it will come as no surprise that October’s issue of Money Magazine lists Point Loma as one of the “Top Ten Coolest Neighborhoods in the United States.” The editors of this national publication asked the travel experts of Lonely Planet to select those communities that “will deliver the goods.” The criteria? Eateries that had a loyal following, local shops and excellent craft breweries. Chosen as number three in the country, Point Loma is also well known for its dramatic views of the San Diego skyline, rich history and a variety of significant neighborhoods. Quite simply, it has a lifestyle for all.
“The location of Point Loma cannot be beat,” says Diana Rubottom, Manager of the Point Loma office at Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty. “With its natural beauty, history, it’s a place where people come back and residents don’t want to leave.”
Located west of San Diego’s vibrant downtown, Point Loma is perhaps best recognized as the site where Europeans first set foot on the West Coast. It is home to the 160 acre Cabrillo National Monument which is popular with photography buffs, nature lovers, exercise enthusiasts and tourists. This is where you can tour the Old Point Loma Lighthouse and museum and also discover some of the best tide pools in all of San Diego.
“With easy access to downtown San Diego as well as to the airport,” adds Rubottom, ”and the popularity of Liberty Station with its businesses and restaurants, not to mention our world famous breweries, eclectic restaurants and shopping, Point Loma is not a cookie cutter community and as such offers a wide array of architectural styles and homes in every price point.”
The largest historical preservation project in San Diego is Liberty Station, a waterfront urban village located within Point Loma. Formerly a Navy Training Center, today, this historic site is filled with art galleries, local shops, restaurants and family entertainment. The repurposing of the naval base’s old mess hall, fire station, auditorium and the former military barracks further demonstrates Point Loma’s appeal and its intent to preserve and honor the city’s history.
Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty has two offices in Point Loma, one located in the heart of the Village at 1075 Rosecrans Street, 619-516-8895 and the other located at 2850 Womble Road in historic Liberty Station, 619-269-2266. Both offices represent a large number of homes on the market, as well as access to experienced realtors who are well-versed in the community (and many who call Point Loma home.)
