Mt. Helix


Mt. Helix is a neighborhood in La Mesa characterized by custom homes on large lots, many with panoramic views. Most of the homes were built between 1950 and 1970 and range in style from modern to ranch and Spanish. Mt. Helix is a San Diego landmark with a large cross at the top of the mountain and an amphitheatre. It is well worth a drive to the top just to enjoy the views from Mexico to the ocean and across the County. Homes on Mt. Helix are highly desirable and sell quickly, many selling in the $1 – $2 million range.

Downstairs Granny flat has generated more than $50,000 in vacation rental revenues over the last two years in the Airbnb program. This property sits on over a full acre (after recorded lot line adjustment) with plans in progress for a lot split. Buyer can sell-off the second upper-level lot, or keep it, and potentially build a second 5,000 square foot "dream home with its own separate half-acre lot with panoramic Mt. Helix views. And, all behind the gated and custom stone wall providing extraordinary privacy and security! Enjoy your large jacuzzi room with direct access from the master bedroom over looking the pool. Please see attached 3D virtual tour, drone video, lot line adjustment in progress, and prospective lot split plans. This breathtaking home shows very well, sports a brand new roof and two separate HVAC systems for upstairs and downstairs (within last 2 years) and is a must see! Great house for large families with separate quarters for lovable "inlaws"!. With some TLC, this fixer could easily be your million dollar dream home!
