Bankers Hill earned its name in the late 19th Century due to its reputation of being the neighborhood of the affluent, and to this day remains a prime location in which to live. Where historic meets modern, Bankers Hill continues to boast a rich assortment of architecturally significant dwellings ranging from beautifully restored Victorian-era homes and mid-century low-rise properties to modern luxury high-rises. Many of these premier properties have exceptional views of the ocean, Balboa Park and downtown, making it one of the best urban neighborhoods in San Diego.
Bordered by Balboa Park to the east, Mission Hills and Hillcrest to the north, and downtown to the south, Bankers Hill’s supreme location brings the entire city literally to your doorstep. Within walking distance down Fifth Avenue, residents enjoy sidewalk cafes, art galleries, locally owned boutiques, interior design studios, and medical offices. Perched above San Diego International Airport and the San Diego Bay, access to all major freeways is moments away. Although the locale may be urban, Bankers Hill sports a community-like feel and continues to be a dynamic and progressive area to call home.
