Discover San Diego Craftsman Homes For Sale

As an expression of the ideals of the American Arts & Crafts movement, the Craftsman home embodies a simple yet sophisticated aesthetic that shows off the meticulous labor that went into their construction. Dating as far back as 1900, San Diego Craftsman homes for sale reflect this attention to detail through the use of natural materials like wood and stone, sturdy-yet-exhaustive ornamentation, and the inclusion of practical additions like original built-in bookcases and breakfast nooks. Many of the homes you'll find in these listings have been carefully enhanced with additional landscaping and renovations designed to preserve the spirit of the Craftsman.

Many San Diego Craftsman homes for sale have been painted in hues that call to mind the natural serenity of Southern California, including brightly colored doors designed to be inviting to community members. Though they range in size from less than 700 to more than 2,800 square feet, they typically offer wide, single story footprints and high ceilings that accentuate the sense of spaciousness of the home and invite owners to shape their habitat as they see fit. Large windows open on scenic bay views and allow in the maximum amount of light, while modern cooling and electrical systems keep you comfortable. While the Craftsman-style, in fact, predates the widespread use of cars, many of these properties include newer attached or detached garages.

Some of the other great features you'll find in San Diego Craftsman homes include:

  • backyard pagodas and patios
  • leaded glass windows
  • sunny breakfast rooms
  • original hardwood flooring
  • fully finished attics

Amenities Near San Diego Craftsman Homes For Sale

Though you'll find San Diego Craftsman homes for sale across the city, they're most common in the oldest residential neighborhoods, like Old Town, North Park, and Normal Heights. These charming communities enjoy quiet streets and sunny days, and residents typically lead active, adventurous lifestyles that include frequent cycling on the city's many bike paths, coastal outings to the beaches at La Jolla Cove or Pacific Beach, or strolls with the kids in Balboa Park. Regardless of the home you choose, you and your family will love being so close to the world-famous San Diego Zoo, the warm waters of the Pacific, and the many great restaurants and cultural experiences that characterize this cosmopolitan city.

In addition to an excellent public school system, San Diego is home to campuses of UC San Diego, San Diego State, and the University of San Diego, a fact that not only provides educational opportunities but also lends these neighbourhoods a vibrancy and youthfulness that they'd otherwise lack. San Diego is a great place to raise a family thanks to low crime rates, great schools, and a local obsession with farmer's markets and farm-to-table foods. It's easy to stay safe and healthy while having fun in this sunny seaside city.

Taken as a whole, San Diego is best experience while driving, with a series of major thoroughfares making it relatively simple to get around. But individual neighborhoods in San Diego, whether they're primarily residential or commercial, are remarkably walkable, and they offer great opportunities for people watching too! With an almost unbelievable number of sunny days each year, San Diego is a city that thrives in the out-of-doors, though at the end of the day you'll be happy you have a Craftsman to come home to.
