Villa Trieste is one of San Diego’s newer senior communities, built in the early 1990s. The homes are modern inside, and the location is superb. Villa Trieste is about 2 1/2 miles from the ocean, far enough inland to be out of the coastal fog, yet not as hot as the inland valleys. The location is close to major shopping centers and health services. The community is very popular, and there is only one problem: since there are only 150 homes, many times there are no homes for sale in Villa Trieste.
A typical villa is a half-duplex, 1750 square feet. They are two stories, with around 1500 square feet on the bottom floor and a big loft space upstairs.
There are also a few condo buildings, where you can own either an upstairs or downstairs unit, with a one car detached garage.
