Tierrasanta Real Estate

Tierrasanta, Spanish for "holy land," was originally part of the Mission San Diego de Alcalá mission ranch, which was active during the late 1700s and early 1800s. The U.S. military purchased the land in 1941 as Camp Elliot, a Marine Corps training facility. In 1961 the area that is now Tierrasanta and a portion of neighboring Mission Trails Regional Park was declared surplus and sold. The Elliott Community Plan was created to serve as a roadmap for development going forward. The master planned Tierrasanta community was begun in 1971.

Tierrasanta is situated like an island and is bounded on the north by Highway 52 and the southern fields of MCAS Miramar, on the east by the 5800-acre Mission Trails Regional Park, which has many hiking and mountain biking trails, on the west by Interstate 15, and on the south by steep canyons overlooking the San Diego River and Mission Valley. Community activities focus on the Tierrasanta Recreation Center, which includes lighted ball fields, a large swimming pool, tennis courts, a gymnasium, and meeting rooms.

The current Tierrasanta community plan was issued in 1982, and includs both the currently developed area and much of what is now Mission Trails Regional Park. By 1982 approximately one-half of the private residential area had been developed, with the area called Tierrasanta Norte. Tierrasanta has been fully built out since the early 1990s, and now has a population of over 30,000.

Surrounded by beautiful green-belts, Tierrsanta has numerous walking paths through canyons, as well as  upscale single family homes, condominiums, apartments, shopping centers, a branch of the San Diego Public Library, and a research park. Also located in the community are four excellent elementary and two middle schools,as well as Junípero Serra High School, which was named #118 of the top high schools in America by Newsweek Magazine in May 2006.
