La Jolla Real Estate

La Jolla is one of San Diego’s most upscale communities, known for its beaches, shopping, dining, and multi-million dollar homes.  Comprising several communities, including Birdrock, Mt. Soledad, the Beach & Barber tract, La Jolla Farms, the Muirlands, and the UCSD area, the heart of La Jolla is the village with its many restaurants, art galleries, and boutiques, and the world famous La Jolla Cove. 

Bounded by Pacific Beach to the south, the Torrey Pines Nature Preserve to the north, University City to the east, and the Pacific Ocean to the west, La Jolla is now fully developed.  With only a few planned communities, principally on Mt. Soledad, La Jolla is made up of custom homes.  A few of the original craftsman style beach cottages, dating to the early 1900s, still stand but those not designated as historic landmarks are frequently razed and replaced by new homes.  Much of La Jolla’s architecture bears the mark of Irving Gill, whose Spanish style still influences new construction today. 

While there are some new condominium and apartment complexes being built, most of La Jolla’s properties are single-family homes, many with spectacular ocean views.  La Jolla has several private schools as well as a highly rated public school system.  It frequently appears on various magazines’ lists of the best places to live in the U.S.
