Poway Real Estate

Poway calls itself "The City in the Country," and it has retained much of its rustic charm through its transformation into a thriving bedroom community close to the City of San Diego and other areas of the county.

Incorporated in 1980, Poway is known for its excellent schools and its many recreational opportunities.  The area still has many areas zoned for horses and homes are often on large lots giving the area a rustic feel. 

With home prices ranging from some of the lowest in the county to estates fetching over $5 million, Poway offers a wide variety of residences for every budget.  Poway has fewer apartments and condominiums than many other parts of the county, instead boasting a large percentage of single-family homes.  Some of the more affordable homes are located along Pomerado Road and in the Old Poway area.  Green Valley offers older custom homes built around a series of horse trails.  Stoneridge, built around the popular Stoneridge Country Club, offers mid-priced homes and is popular with families.   Some of the newer communities include Green Valley Estates and Bridlewood Estates, both offering large luxury ranch and spanish style homes on generous lots. 

Sabre Springs, one of Poway’s newest areas, is an active family community nestled into the hills along Interstate 15 and Poway Road. Quietly tucked between Carmel Mountain Ranch to the North, Scripps Miramar Ranch to the South, Poway to the East and Rancho Peñasquitos to the West.  The community was designed and built by Pardee Homes as a master-planned community and offers apartments, town homes, and single-family residences.

Old Poway Park is the center of the community hosting a number of events each year including craft shows, farmer's markets and blacksmith demonstrations. The park is home to a vintage train that offers rides to visitors each weekend.  Lake Poway, formed when the Poway dam was built, offers fishing, picnic areas and boating.
