Mission Hills Community

Mission Hills was the first residential community to be built outside Lompoc’s city limits between the years 1958 to 1962. The homes are approximately 1,200 to 1,400 square feet with lot sizes between 6,000 to 8,000 square feet. The development consists of two different tracts; Lower Mission Hills and Upper Mission Hills.

In effect a major part of all homes in the Lompoc area are about 50-years old because of the early expansion of Vandenberg Air Force Base in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s. Vandenberg AFB was the first missile base of the United States Air Force and was growing rapidly during this time. Vandenberg Air Force Base continues to be the economical main stay for employment in the Mission Hills area and is home to a significant number of active and retired military and civil personnel. A short drive of fifteen minutes will take you to the main gate at Vandenberg AFB.

Buying a home in Mission Hills is also a great investment for the first time home buyer or the seasoned investor or maybe you are interested in a second home close to Santa Barbara wine country and the Pacific Ocean. The Lompoc real estate area is the most affordable area on the Central Coast. Also many Mission Hills homes have been recently remodeled showing off new kitchen cabinets, new countertops, and appliances and much more.

The Mission Hills development sits above the historic La Purisima Mission State Park and some homes offer a panoramic vista of the historical park. Unlike new developments, the landscaping in Mission Hills is established and plants have become accustomed to the environment and produce healthy foliage. Most trees will have already matured and are providing shade and beauty to your home.

As a resident of Mission Hills you become part of the Central California’s coastal residents who consider their environment mild. The land here receives moderate rainfall, some fog and no snow. The hills are green in winter and turn a burnished gold in the summer.

According to a member of the Lompoc Mural Society, Lompoc was the mustard capitol of the world in the 1920′s. The mustard was cut and sent to France where it was turned into many varieties of edible mustards. Today, the hills on the edge of town are still covered in mustard in spring time. Recent housing construction and the popularity of the location is turning Lompoc into a popular destination where you can visit the Mission La Purisima Concepcion, play golf on award winning golf courses, and take in the beauty of Lompoc’s building murals.
