The San Diego neighborhood of Encanto is actually comprised of several individual communities, including Chollas View, Lincoln Park, Emerald Hills, Valencia Park, Encanto, Broadway Heights, and Alta Vista.  The encompassing district can be divided into North and South Encanto, with the main thoroughfare Broadway dividing the two enclaves.  Situated just south of the Martin Luther King Junior Freeway, with I-805 to the west, the community of Encanto is characterized by its rolling hills and wide open spaces. Several commercial buildings line many major streets and low-density residential housing is typical for this area of San Diego County.  The neighborhood is currently undergoing a revitalization, and the Chollas Creek Enhancement Project is spearheading a progressive restoration that strives to protect native vegetation in the area.

Residential housing in the Encanto community ranges from buildings constructed as early as 1915 to new homes built from 2004-2006.  Many homes and lots enjoy significant view opportunities, including glimpses of Coronado Island and majestic downtown San Diego, due to the changes in topography throughout the neighborhood.  Residents of Encanto live in apartments, townhouses, and modest single-family homes that sell from $90,000 for a studio up to $265,000 for a four-bedroom house.  The median sales price for a single family home in Encanto is $201,000.  The average price per square foot is $171.

Encanto residents value strong community involvement and the city provides many services and opportunities to enjoy fellowship with neighbors and enhance personal well-being.  The Encanto Recreation Center offers sports programs like Youth Soccer and Men’s/ Women’s Basketball, and also hosts several events and classes throughout the year.  Families enjoy sponsored Teen Nights, a Spring Easter Egg Hunt, and cooking and craft lessons.  The Recreation Center features a tot lot for little ones and mom’s to gather during the day, and a picnic area for relaxing with neighbors or soaking up the scenery of the area. Encanto’s school-aged children are served by the Solana Beach School District for grades K-6, and the San Diego Unified School District for grades PreK-12.  Residents are part of a multi-racial group that includes Latinos, African-Americans, Phillipinos, and Caucasians.

Encanto is served by an efficient public transportation system that includes a San Diego Trolley Station, which offers a central hub near Euclid and Market Street.  Residents arrive into exciting downtown San Diego in a short 15 minutes aboard the San Diego Trolley.  Dining options in Encanto include fast food eateries, bakeries, and international-themed casual restaurants.  Big-chain and independent grocery markets, convenience stores, and retail outlets line the streets of this slow-paced community.  Government services, like a local post office are also available.   Situated less than 10 miles from the Pacific Ocean, residents of Encanto are close to beaches in the popular North County area, as well as fantastic destinations in the south, such as the beautiful Mission Bay.

Residents who choose to buy a home in Encanto are able to afford a larger home for a relatively low price, as compared to many surrounding San Diego neighborhoods.
