La Jolla Neighborhoods: Beach-Barber Tract

Splendid Spot Along Coast for Luxury Living

La Jolla is a jewel of a city that is sited in the northern part of San Diego County.  The region is renowned for wonderful weather, never too hot in summer or too cold in winter.  The mild year round temperatures promote a healthy lifestyle of outdoor living.  There are numerous golf courses in the area that can be played in comfort all year long.  The city of La Jolla can be further divided into several smaller neighborhoods such as the Beach Barber Tract.

The Beach Barber Tract of La Jolla is serene and laid back.  It is sited above the renowned Windandseas Beach.  This scenic coastal community consists of a wide ranging mix of homes that are available in several different styles.  There are some charming English style cottages that have proven particularly popular.  Of course, everyone admires the view of the ocean front residences.

This neighborhood was named after Phillip Barber.  He was an heir to a steamship fortune.  The Beach Barber Tract was established in the early 1920’s.  Most long term residents here have kept the architectural integrity of their homes.  Many homes in the Beach Barber Tract are historic and have retained a sense of individualism over the years that is much admired today.  This development is close to La Jolla High School and The Village which is a shopping center filled with unique stores.

Homes Vary in Size and Price Have Widespread Appeal

Homes in the Beach Barber Tract of La Jolla can range from beach cottage to oceanfront estate.  The region is extremely popular to many because of the casual lifestyle so evident here.  Homes in this locale start around $950,000 and go up to $29 million.  Many of the houses in the Beach Barber Tract have been lovingly passed down through generations of the same family.  Several have received historic landmark status.

For those interested in condos, there are several small developments to select from.  Among the choices are Villa La Jolla which is a mere 2 blocks from the beach.  One bedroom units in this development start at $350,000.

The living is easy and laid back in the Beach Barber Tract of La Jolla.  Everything essential to gracious living is within walking distance.  You are just a few steps away here from the beach, shops, and restaurants.  Visitors may wish to eat at Su Casa or The Shack before strolling down to the world renowned Windansea Beach.  This is a good spot to watch surfers.  Large evenly formed waves roll in here the year round making it one of the prime spots for surfing in Southern California.  The Village Shopping Center features a host of specialty shops that are a delight to browsers.

Life in La Jolla represents the epitome of the California lifestyle with its emphasis on outdoor living.  The beach always beckons, and the fair weather that prevails throughout the year makes everyday a good day for beach combing.
