Dulzura is a small unincorporated community that is situated along California State Highway 94. The area was once known as the place to go to for "Clark's Pickelized Figs," a then-popular candied fruit delicacy that was sold between 1908 in 1914 by Frank and Lila Clark at Clark Ranch. Today, its rural location and rustic charm makes it popular among homebuyers in search of picturesque real estate.
The small community is located approximately 25 miles away from San Diego's central business district and approximately 10 miles away from the U.S.-Mexico border. The nearest border crossing is located approximately 18 miles away in Tecate.
Nestled within the mountains of southeastern San Diego County, Dulzura offers spacious and quiet living with many of the advances of urban life located just a short drive away in nearby San Diego. It is not uncommon for residents to work in El Cajon, Chula Vista and San Diego, only to make the commute back to their homes in Dulzura.
The area offers a variety of homes for sale ranging from typical ranch-style houses to homes exhibiting Spanish, Mediterranean and neo-eclectic home architecture. Many of these homes also feature sizable lots as well as multi-purpose buildings that can be used as workshops, storage or guest dwellings. Some of these residences have been renovated some time ago while others were retrofitted with solar panels and other energy-saving measures.
