Porter Hill Old Picture

Southern California at its Best

Charming tall palm trees line the wide avenue as it transforms from La Mesa Boulevard to University, passing fine businesses and galleries, and the La Mesa Historical Society. La Mesa has a rich history and Porter Hill is near where it all started.  Photo Courtesy City of La Mesa

Quiet Residential Appeal

porter hill neighborhood homes In the highly sought-after Porter Hill/La Mesa Village neighborhood, homes feel private and tucked away but are only a block from some great shops, a ballpark, and a short walk to La Mesa Village.

Affordable Homes in the Heart of La Mesa

Porter Hill is full of wonderful family homes close to University and La Mesa Boulevards. The La Mesa Community Center is close by. I’ve posted some photos of rooms from a recent listing in the area.  School Chart Courtesy of Zillow


The New Library  porter hill library

The City of La Mesa recently built a library on Allison Avenue. This brand new library has a wonderful collection of books and hosts events for local groups such as a recent free seminar on how to get your book published.

There is a trolley stop on nearby Spring Street. There are plenty of antique stores. Maxwell’s House of Books and Cosmos Coffee Cafe, both La Mesa Village institutions, sit a couple of blocks away. Photo Courtesy of City of La Mesa

Central Location

A short drive away one can find Grossmont Center, a haven of excellent stores including Barnes and Noble, Wal-Mart, Target and Macy’s. In close proximity is Staples and Trader Joe’s.
