San Diego, like many California cities, is not known for its affordability. Based on San Diego real estate market stats, the median San Diego home price reached $1,000,000 in April of 2022. With a median home price at that level, you can imagine the most expensive houses in San Diego can hit truly stratospheric numbers.
Surprisingly, the biggest houses in San Diego are not always the most expensive. That is in part because the most expensive homes in San Diego are often coastal and waterfront properties. Coastal properties tend to be on relatively smaller lots and have less square footage than larger homes further inland. You will not see any cottages on this list, but the most expensive homes in San Diego are frequently less than 10,000 square feet. While still large, San Diego’s largest homes are typically 15,000+ square feet.
