La Jolla Neighborhoods: La Jolla Farms

La Jolla Community, News | 11th Nov 2012

Scenic Spot Features Fine Coastal Views

La Jolla is renowned for being one of the finest locations in the world in which to reside.  This small city located along the coast in the northern portion of San Diego County has a bucolic charm, and yet it is conveniently close to the major metropolis of San Diego.  Orange and Los Angeles County locations are within commuting distance via such high speed transportation routes as I-5.  La Jolla is made up of a number of smaller neighborhoods such as La Jolla Farms.

La Jolla Farms comprises about 200 acres of the northern portion of the city adjacent to Torrey Pines State Park.  This natural preserve was established 100 years ago to protect a scenic stretch of coastline that was home to the rarest sort of pine tree found in the state.  The Torrey Pine grows only in a few select spots in this vicinity.

La Jolla Farms is bordered on one side by the University of California at San Diego and on the other side by the Pacific Ocean.  La Jolla Farms originally had an equestrian emphasis.  The lots are generous in proportions and many of the homes here have undergone extensive remodeling.  A U shaped residence built by The Farms original developer is now owned by UCSD.  It is used as the chancellor’s residence.  Blacks Beach lies below the homes here.  It is a very secluded beach with difficult access.  Farms residents have their own key to a private access gate.  Because it affords so much privacy, Blacks Beach is a clothing optional site.  The surfing is rated as excellent.

Many of Region’s Amenities Enjoyed by Residents Here

Torrey Pines Golf Course is adjacent to La Jolla Farms.  The course is home to the annual Buick International.  It is one of the few municipally owned golf courses on the PGA.  It can be booked for a fairly modest fee.

The Farms was subdivided in the 50’s.  Most of the homes here were built in the 70’s and 80’s.  La Jolla Farms Road is an exclusive neighborhood of about 100 homes.  The lots range in size from ¾ of an acre up to more than 5 acres.  This is an expensive locale with most properties selling for more than $3,500,000.  Homes come in a wide variety of styles from ranch to contemporary to Spanish and Italian Renaissance.  There are some small pockets of lesser priced homes as well.

La Jolla Farms has a number of condos.  Blackhorse Farms is a gated complex built in 1989.  Units are available in 5 different floor plans. Ranging in size from 2174 to 2975 square feet in size.  Prices start at $800,000 and rise to over $1,000,000.

La Jolla Farms exemplifies the best in Southern California living.  It is set along a spectacular stretch of coastline which is just minutes away from downtown San Diego and all the attractions around Mission Bay including Sea World.
