WELCOME HOME TO Point Loma
THE LIVING SITUATION
Point Loma lets you have many different experiences, all in one day. You could start off by playing the part of a paleontologist. Looming at heights of 400 feet, the Sunset Cliffs contain fossils that date back 75 million years, which are constantly being revealed as the never-ending waves erode the sandstone bluffs. Next, become an explorer as you visit the Old Point Loma Lighthouse. Stand at the tip of the peninsula and witness views that postcards, and countless insta posts, are made of. Built in 1855, the lighthouse marks the entry point to the San Diego Bay, and is possibly San Diego’s most famous landmark. Near the lighthouse, you can become a marine biologist as you explore the best tide pooling in the city, and have some hands-on fun discovering flowery anemones, crabs, mollusks and a myriad of other sea creatures inhabiting the reef. After all that science you can indulge your artsy side by heading over to Liberty Station. You’ll recognize the long oval hallways of this former Naval Training Station from the movie “Top Gun.” Yeah, this is where Maverick was made! But you’ll remember Liberty Station most for what it has become — a waterfront urban village that includes hotels, restaurants, breweries, shopping, community events and the popular Liberty Public Market. This large open space gathering place offers stalls filled with prepared foods, beer, wine, pastries and crafts. The creative community here is also a thriving arts district, with over 48 museums, galleries, artist and design studios, dance companies and other organizations. And when thinking of Point Loma, let’s not forget about the fully functioning Marina, complete with a selection of seafood that is the best in the city, both fresh off the boat and from the kitchen. The Point Loma marina is flanked on each side by two distinct maritime areas — Harbor Island and Shelter Island.
Shelter Island. First and foremost, Shelter Island is almost an island, but not quite. It’s actually connected to the mainland by a narrow strip of land. And speaking of narrow strips of land, the “island” itself is just a few hundred feet wide, enough for a single street. But this skinny street has a lot going on, whether you want to stay on land or off. Fishermen depart from here on both short and long-range sportfishing trips, looking to pull in a variety of Pacific fish like Yellowtail, Halibut, Albacore, Dorado, Calico Bass and a variety of rock fish. Landlubbers can live their best Shelter Island lives lounging by the pool of one of its resort hotels, such as the famous Humphreys Half Moon Inn and Suites. You can enjoy live music at a summer “Concert by The Bay” or pick the perfect grassy area for a picnic on a warm day.
Harbor Island. This two-mile stretch of mini peninsula has a lot going on for being such a small piece of Point Loma real estate. Joggers, walkers, skaters and bikers enjoy a cool breeze and take in the San Diego skyline as they make their way down this thin strip of land. Harbor Island is known for restaurants with top-notch cuisine and views to match, such as the famous Tom Ham’s Lighthouse and Island Prime Costerra. You can enjoy a stay at one of Shelter Island’s large hotels or just stop by to experience the 4th of July fireworks, the annual boat Parade of Lights or the internationally known America’s Cup sailing race.
Here are a few things I recommend to make your Point Loma experience even more memorable.

3536 Lowell happens to have a front row seat to see the beauty of the San Diego Bay. Homes that are truly beautiful make everyday living possible but they also make the home itself a work of art. And what I feel like what you get with 3536 Lowell, is a home that’s human sized. It’s not imposing. It’s something you can live in every single day. But it still is a showpiece to both the neighborhood and the guests that get to enjoy it.
The architect, Lucy Muchacha, put her personal touch on the home. But you feel that is reminiscent of so many great architects that came before her. There’s so much beautiful intension in this home. And what you see when there’s so much intention in the architecture and design is you don’t just get beautiful rooms that are impressive, you get flow.
[Name missed01:48] believes the homeowners found a master artisan who’s known for his beautiful woodwork. That artisan special designed custom doors built throughout the home and held together by wood gals. With multiple different types of beautiful rich wood throughout the home you see a sense of nature and also a sense that this property is unique as a fingerprint itself.
In addition to its truly remarkable architecture, 3536 Lowell is fortunate enough to have a front row seat to peer upon the beauty that is San Diego.
