Nestled in the Golden Hill neighborhood just south of the 1,200-acre Balboa Park (home to the San Diego Zoo), this is the second most expensive house on our list. It's a well-maintained 1913 carriage house with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The main floor is open and features wood floors, which extend into the remodeled kitchen. There, you'll find an island, solid surface countertops and standard appliances. The second floor is home to a large master bedroom loft and a free-standing clawfoot tub. The basement offers a laundry area and storage. And there are French doors that lead to a rear deck. Don't miss one of the nicest features of this home -- the view of downtown San Diego.
