Encanto is an established neighborhood located within the southeastern portion of the city of San Diego. Well known for its hilly terrain, the neighborhood is split along Broadway into two sections: North Encanto and South Encanto. Both neighborhoods offer a wide variety of housing options that should satisfy the needs of any homebuyer. Other neighborhoods in the general vicinity include Emerald Hills, Valencia Park, Alta Vista, Skyline, Broadway Heights and Oak Park. This neighborhood is often included in the Encanto Neighborhoods planning area along with these and other aforementioned communities in the area.
This neighborhood is ideal for those who want to remain relatively close to the downtown area, yet want to be far away enough to enjoy the advantages of suburban living. It's also not too rural in nature, meaning that residents can still enjoy the comforts and conveniences of urban life.
Encanto is a low-density neighborhood that is dominated somewhat by commercial and industrial developments. Nevertheless, this neighborhood features a variety of affordable and tastefully designed homes for sale, each with their own unique charm and a long list of popular features, including modern, energy-efficient appliances, granite counter tops and new flooring. Many of these homes are simplistic in nature, either designed in the modernist fashion or, in the case of older real estate, designed as Craftsman or California bungalows. This area is also in close proximity to several schools, making this neighborhood ideal for starting and raising a family.
