Homes for Sale
Homes in this area come in a wide range of prices, styles, and sizes.
Where to Live
Many of the homes in Sherman Heights date back to the 1880s through the 1920s. They still exist and create lovely areas filled with grand Victorians that have been well maintained. The neighborhood also has quaint cottages from the 1940s and 1950s, so they have sizable front and backyards, which is essentially unheard of for new construction homes in San Diego.
Where to Eat
The culinary scene in Sherman Heights proper is primarily fast food, local coffee shops, and delis. However, being close to downtown, residents have an extensive selection of restaurants from which to choose, from five-star to funky hole-in-the-wall joints. You will find a wide selection of Mexican, Chinese, Japanese, French, Spanish, Italian, and plenty of fusion cuisine.
What You'll See
Sherman Heights has a wonderful collection of authentic Victorians. Plus, it is home to The Villa Montezuma Museum at K and 20th Streets, which was built in 1887 for Jesse Shepard, a renowned spiritualist and pianist. The city of San Diego now owns the museum, which is run by the San Diego Historical Society and is regarded as one of the best Victorian house museums in California.
Friday Night Fun
Since Sherman Heights is primarily a residential area, a Friday night means walking the dog at sunset or visiting with the neighbors. There are several nice coffee shops to hang out at or you can head over to downtown, Seaport Village, Horton Plaza or Little Italy for a wide selection of restaurants, theaters, movies, music, and nightclubs.
The Perfect Sunday
A perfect Sunday means a quiet morning at a cafe before heading to Balboa Park to hike the trails or take in the museums. The San Diego Convention Center is nearby and hosts several popular events such as Comic-Con. Or you could mosey over to the harbor to have brunch at one of the restaurants that overlook the bay and watch dolphins swim by.
