New Hilltop Community Mesa Del Sol Begins Phase II Construction

La Mesa has a definitive neighborhood flavor, with colorful, family run shops; antique stores; a historic district and an emerging restaurant scene.

The following announcement was made recently by Mesa del Sol:

Mesa del Sol – a new hilltop community in La Mesa comprised of 36 homes with sweeping views, a convenient locale and top quality design and craftsmanship – has begun construction  on Phase II of the community.

According to Brad Termini, Co-CEO of Zephyr Partners, the San Diego-based developer of the new community, Phase II was recently completed and is now move-in ready, with construction on the ten homes in Phase II poised to begin. “We are excited to be a part of the La Mesa community, which we think has enormous potential and neighborhood appeal – with its proximity to downtown San Diego, lively events and emerging restaurant scene.”

Indeed, with the arrival of hip new restaurants like Brian Malarkey’s Gingham, the town of La Mesa is enjoying a renaissance of sorts, while gearing up for a yearlong centennial celebration. Located just minutes from downtown San Diego amidst rolling hills, La Mesa is known for its temperate climate; tree-lined streets; tranquil, walkable neighborhoods and easy access to retail and commercial areas, including the quaint downtown village.

Much like more urban San Diego neighborhoods – such as Hillcrest, University Heights and Kensington – La Mesa has a definitive neighborhood flavor, with colorful, family run shops; antique stores; a historic district and an emerging restaurant scene, with highlights such as Gingham, The Vine Cottage and Riviera Supper Club. A lively line-up of events and regular activities also lend to the city’s vibrant local color, with standouts including a regular Farmer’s Market, an Antique Street Faire, the annual Oktoberfest, Flag Day Parade and Christmas in the Village.

Now in the midst of a much-anticipated centennial celebration, the community was originally founded in 1869, and incorporated as the City of La Mesa on February 16, 1912.

While La Mesa is just minutes from downtown San Diego and the Mid-City area, the homes here are relatively affordable. In fact, new residences at Mesa del Sol – ranging from 2377 to 2669 square feet with three to five bedrooms, private yards and porches and balconies on select models – are situated on a quiet, tree-lined street and start in the low $500,000s, with no Mello Roos and low HOA fees.

With breathtaking panoramas of Point Loma, downtown San Diego and beyond, the community features beautifully appointed two- and three-story single-family homes. Each home has a two-car garage and is outfitted with handsome exteriors – with craftsman, traditional and mission architectural accents – as well as high-end amenities and fine interior detailing.

Interiors are open, light and airy – and carefully designed for today’s busy lifestyles. Select interior highlights include handcrafted stairways with stained handrails and white spindles and posts; raised panel interior doors with chrome decorative hardware; soaring nine-foot-high ceilings in all downstairs rooms; fireplaces with tile surround

great rooms in select residences; Moen plumbing fixtures; upstairs laundry rooms and textured walls and bull nose vertical corners throughout.

State-of-the-art kitchens are ideal for entertaining and fully equipped with a multi-functional island or breakfast bar; elegant beech cabinetry with concealed hinges and adjustable upper shelves; granite slab countertops; a large, double compartment stainless steel sink; recessed lighting; a spacious pantry and quality stainless steel appliances.

I don't know what the lot sizes are, but these homes seem to be really close to each other.

I just toured this development today and was blown away by these beautiful homes. They are somewhat affordable and are located in a great area that is perfect for commuters. I appreciated the details, layout and upgrades that added to the beauty and appeal of the homes while not seeming too overdone. Residence 1 is perfect for families with 2 or more kids, and Residence 2 floor plan (not available to tour) seemed like it would be ideal for those with grandparents living with them because you can convert the lower level into a 5th bedroom, bath and den. As the previous poster indicated, the lots are somewhat close but the homes are still very private and have awesome views. I predict that those able to purchase homes in La Mesa Del Sol will be very happy, and will probably never want to move. I live in Lemon Grove and I dream of some day being able to afford a home as beautiful and in such a convenient location as La Mesa Del Sol.

I've toured there many times. Most of the lots are about 100 x 40 for about 4,000 sq/ft. The backyards are about 25 x 40.
