The charming village of La Mesa, known as the "Jewel of the Hills," is a beacon to travelers and locals alike. Boasting one of the temperate and near-perfect micro-climates for which San Diego is famous, La Mesa attracts visitors year-round, offering countless antique shops, boutiques and outdoor dining bistros. La Mesa is also recognized as the "Gateway to Mt. Helix," a community of upscale homes with incredible views and an amazing kaleidoscope of historic and architectural styles. The La Mesa office of Pacific Sotheby's International Realty also serves the surrounding communities from the smallest cottages to the luxury homes of Del Cerro and the large and sprawling estate properties of Blossom Valley in the eastern foothills. The community is ideally situated adjacent to San Diego State University, just a 20 minute drive west to the Pacific Ocean and 45 minutes east to the pristine wooded mountains of the Cleveland National Forest.
