We wrapped up what turned out to be my favorite house flipping project in Serra Mesa. I’ve bought and remodeled probably 5-6 in this neighborhood, but this one came out to perfection! No faster did the home hit the market for sale over the Labor Day weekend than we got multiple offers and it is now in escrow sold to a new buyer. Thanks to everyone who helped and made this transformation come to life! Keep us in mind for any fixer-upper “as-is” homes, we are always looking for a house to buy and transform into something special!

I am so proud of what we have done with this project that just wrapped up today and is hitting the market for sale for $899.000. While this home is built in 1947, it’s not technically “historic” per se, but the neighborhood of Mission Cliff Gardens is second to none as far as history goes for San Diego Metro neighborhoods. Located in University Heights near Trolley Barn Park, this is one truly special pocket of homes, some of which overlook expansive Mission Valley.
The mid-century architecture on this home was all left intact so as not to alter the character. Casement windows, bold horizontal lines, big overhangs and horizontal wood siding all give this the Palm Springs vibe but in a million-dollar San Diego view location very close to downtown.
The exterior house colors are Sherwin Williams HGSW3282 Woodland Lichen for the body and Sherwin William HGSW3174 Lennox Hill Tan for the trim. These Sherwin Willams colors are from a new collection they did in partnership with HGTV and you can find the at Home Depot. The front door accent color is SW6606. The green body is very bold and makes a huge masculine statement in person. The satin sheen was perfect on our 70-year-old wood siding.
We kept the inside of this home mostly period correct and didnt even take out the original kitchen cabinets. Interior wall colors are SW9166 Drift of Mist which is our current favorite, trims are SW7004 Snowbound. The flooring we picked is light and beachy from Floor and Decor and is waterproof to allow it running straignt into the Retro kitchen.

Our recent remodel near Mission Valley just sold for $750,000. The market is really hot right now even in the face of a National Pandemic. I only had projected a sales price of $650,000 when I purchased it. After multiple offers and overbidding, somehow it appraised at this sales price and is now the new high sales comparable in 92111 by far at $608.00/s.f. Enjoy the video of the remodel!
