La Jolla’s endless summer ambience, impressive ocean views, striking sandstone cliffs, and luxury estate living make it one of the most desirable locations within San Diego County. Spanish for “the jewel,” La Jolla has perfect Mediterranean weather and exquisite homes along its lush hillsides and beaches. Some of the reasons visitors from around the world choose to make La Jolla their home is the seamless blending of lifestyles, where high culture meets beach culture. There is no shortage of 5 star restaurants, hip and trendy lounges, along with numerous shops and attractions. From Ralph Lauren, to Ferrari of San Diego, there is no taste unaccounted for. Girard St & Prospect Ave can rival Rodeo Drive of Beverly Hills any day. La Jolla is just minutes from downtown San Diego and is home to the, Museum of Contemporary Art, the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, the University of California-San Diego and the Birch Aquarium. There is even a World-class golf course in La Jolla, the La Jolla Country Club and let’s not forget a regular PGA stop, Torrey Pines. Vacationers travel to Caribbean for great diving and snorkeling, but when you live in La Jolla all it takes is a short stroll down to the cove where you may see dolphins, sharks, yellowtail tuna, sea lions and countless other tropical fish. They often refer to La Jolla as the most expensive real estate market in the United States with the average price of a four bedroom home over $2 million. La Jolla is made up of 16 neighborhoods, 3 of my favorites are “The La Jolla Shores” because of its convenient beach access, and walkability, “Murilands” because of its stunning panoramic coastal views and finally “Beach Barber Tract” which has magnificent oceanfront estates on the sand. Beautiful beaches, championship golf courses, world-class shops, unique restaurants, outstanding ocean scenery, art galleries, luxury hotels, wild surf and calm cove waters, dramatic cliff views, romantic sunsets, mild, sunny weather. This is La Jolla. For more information on this community click here.
