Del Mar

delmar2

Del Mar, "where the surf meets the turf," is a chic beach town that is home to the Del Mar Racetrack and San Diego County Fair. Located north of La Jolla and adjacent to Torrey Pines State Beach, this quaint village features boutique shopping and many of the County's finest restaurants. Residents love the architecturally inspired housing as well as the fresh air and spectacular views afforded by proximity to the ocean. Families are attracted to Del Mar because of the high-ranking public schools, great beaches, summer concerts "by the sea", and walks on Dog Beach. Del Mar draws successful, accomplished people; in a population of 5,000, at least half are college graduates.

La Jolla

La Jolla

Named “the most desirable place to live in the world” (Robb Report), La Jolla is where two million dollar homes are the rule rather than the exception. This internationally recognized community houses top-drawer boutiques, jewelry stores, art galleries, restaurants, and hotels, many with stunning ocean views. In addition to serving as a finance center, the North Torrey Pines area is home to the prestigious Salk Institute, Scripps Hospital, and the University of California at San Diego.

Cardiff, Encinitas, Leucadia, & Olivenhain

Encinitas

Encinitas is divided into five areas, four of which are beach towns that have retained their charm and simplicity. Bordered by two lagoons and known as the “Flower Capital of the World,” Encinitas is one of the world’s major suppliers of poinsettias. Old Encinitas is beachside, while inland New Encinitas features golf courses, shopping centers and larger tract homes. Moonlight Beach, with its sand volleyball and firepits, is a classic symbol of the Encinitas way of life. At the South end of Encinitas is Cardiff-By-The-Sea, where the sprawling grounds of the Self-Realization Fellowship are perched above the beaches below where residents walk, surf, and swim daily. Streets are named after British cities and classical composers. People move here because they crave a simpler lifestyle, one in which they can be in touch with Nature and buy groceries in their neighborhood store where they can find locally grown produce. Leucadia, which means Isle of Paradise, is a quiet surfing town, reminiscent of California beach village of the past. It is located in the north coastal part of Encinitas, just south of Carlsbad. Inland, Olivenhain (German for “olive grove”) is semi-rural and country living at its best, offering estate homes on large lots, ideal for gardening, peaceful reflection, and horse-keeping, yet still close to shopping and restaurants.

Carlsbad

Carlsbad

Known as “the village by the sea” picturesque Carlsbad has a historic downtown district overlooking the ocean. As the town stretches east toward Palomar Airport, golfing manufacturers, corporate offices and biotech parks mesh with the Legoland theme park. Further south, the La Costa Resort and Spa and the Four Seasons Aviara Resort offer world-class amenities. Within this coastal and inland community, you’ll find families living in upscale and upwardly mobile neighborhoods. There are also a slew of golf courses. Founded in the mid 1800’s the town got its name from spring water in Karlsbad, Bohemia.

Carmel Valley

golf-grounds-lake-natural-wonders

92130, often referred to as Carmel Valley, is actually a conglomeration of communities that juxtapose high-end tract homes with multi million dollar estates and the only five-star resort in San Diego County, The Grand Del Mar. The public schools are consistently among the highest rated in the County, the crime rate is low, and the family-oriented neighborhoods and activities are the norm. Located East of Interstate 5 and a short drive from the beach, Carmel Valley offers sunny days with cool ocean breezes. Over 11,000 homes and 5,000 condos dot this new community. Designed for busy families, the lots are smaller and the homes are larger. Carmel Valley, the hub of international law firms, is also adjacent to Sorrento Valley, the key biotech and telecom job center in America.
