The Charm of National City

Thanks to KirE Builders and Synergy Communications, I was able to check out the new 8 On C housing development in my hometown of National City. Located just a few minutes from my childhood home, the modern homes are a wonderful addition to the community!

Here is a video highlighting some of the property's features!

There were several aspects of the property I really liked. I liked the enclosed driveways and limited access to the individual garages. It creates an enclosed, secure, shared space within in the properties. I also liked the properties that has a bedroom on the street level. The bedroom could be made into an office with its own separate entrance which would be convenient for those who have a home based business. Lastly, all of the properties are solar ready which is definitely a plus with rising electric costs!

After checking out 8 on C, my friend Eleina and I decided to explore the area and reminisce of our days in National City growing up. Within 5 minutes walking distance from 8 on C are a few of National City's treasured spots!

We walked by the National City's Antique Row Homes built in 1887 and now serves as business and private space. There are over a dozen historical sites in National City since it's the 2nd oldest city in San Diego county. 

Since it was so close by, we had to grab some ice cream at Niederfranks Ice Cream which is definitely one of the must eats in National City! They have a Thai Tea Ice Cream which is heavenly!

Thanks to buddy Eleina for checking out 8 and C with me!
We also walked by McDini's, which has open since 1890. It's a great place to catch the game and also carries lots of the local craft beers!

On our way back to our car at 8 and C, we walked passed Big Ben Market and Restaurant which features locally grown produce and sustainably raised meats from local purveyors. There is also a restaurant attached serving from-scratch meals during lunch and dinner.

I'm delighted National City has the 8 on C housing development to welcome new families to the community. The new owners of these homes will also be pleased to live in the middle of the charm of National City!
