As one of the oldest communities in the San Diego area, the homes in Mission Hills carry a unique blend of vintage appeal and urban lifestyles. Whether you love the sophisticated culture or the scenic tree-lined streets, it’s a great place to live. Since most of the houses were built well before 1970, they have a classic look and feel, which is part of the charm of Mission Hills. Owning an older home doesn’t mean you have to forgo the amenities of the modern era, though. A whole-home remodel can be refreshing for your house and for your lifestyle.
If your house is starting to look and act its age, a renovation can bring a beautiful new feel to it without compromising the architecture. Our Lars Remodeling team has the experience and the ability to preserve the authentic look and original style of the era while integrating modern conveniences. We’ve worked with the prairie, mission revival, Spanish and other architectural styles in Mission Hills to incorporate comfort and convenience into the design, including:
- Elegant outdoor living spaces and hardscapes
- Stunning kitchen and bath renovations
- Living space layout reconfigurations
- Home office additions
Preserving History and Architecture
One of our most recent Mission Hills whole-home remodeling projects was the work we did on the C. Arnholdt Smith house on San Juan Road. The five-bedroom bi-level house with five-and-a-half baths was originally built in 1936. It underwent several changes over the years and was designated a historic landmark in 2009. We enjoyed renovating this landmark, and we worked closely with the owners to preserve the vintage style while adding comforts and amenities in keeping with zoning requirements. Part of the wonderful experience during this architectural remodel was interacting with the local community on our way to and from the hillside home every day. We look forward to working on other homes in the Mission Hills area.
