La Jolla Neighborhoods: La Jolla Shores

Famous Stretch of Shoreline Makes for Living Large

La Jolla is a scenic city that is situated along a dramatic stretch of the coast in the northern portion of San Diego County.  The weather here is world renowned for being gentle and mild all through the year.  A summer day will rarely exceed 80 degrees.  In the depth of winter, daytime highs will generally reach into the 60’s.  Perhaps this is why golf is such a prevalent pastime all through the year.  The region is home to numerous courses that are a golfer’s delight.  The city of La Jolla is made up of a number of smaller neighborhoods such as La Jolla Shores.

The Shores as La Jollans refer to it is a popular summer haven for tourists.  It is a lively neighborhood with a small town feel.  The La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club is a popular venue for recreation.  There are many wonderful restaurants here, and the beach here is the most expansive stretch of sand in the La Jolla region.

Just across the street from La Jolla Shores Beach are three condominium developments, El Paseo Grande, Vallecitos, and Camino del Oro.  These were built in 1971 and contain 106 units.  They feature pool, spa, and secured underground parking.  There are a number of year round residents at these complexes as well as people who use them as summer and vacation homes.  Vacation rentals are allowed at these spots.  They are a short stroll away from the beach and the shops and restaurants found at The Village.

Homes Preserve Values Due to Demand

Del Charro Woods is a luxury development found at La Jolla Shores.  The 53 residences represent great value both in terms of location and in the square footage on offer.  The units were built in 1976 and are over 2,000 square feet in size.  The development features a community pool, spa, and tennis court.  It is tucked away on a quiet portion of Camino del Cid, but it is just a short walk to the beach and to all the attractions found in The Village.  There is also easy access to I-5 from here.

La Jolla Estates are located at 2510 Torrey Pines Blvd.  The 60 condos at this site were built in 1971.  The complex has a community pool.  The La Jolla Racquet Club is just down the road at 2600 Torrey Pines Blvd.  The 64 units were built in 1974.  The development features a pool and 2 tennis courts.

Montoro is a gated community found within La Jolla Shores.  This collection of extraordinary custom homes overlooks La Jolla Cove and the northern coastline from view lots that line the hillsides.

Shore Towers at 2500 Torrey Pines Blvd. is one of the few high rise buildings found in the region.  It was completed in 1973 before a 30 foot height limitation was put into effect by the Coastal Commission.  The building features, tennis, a spa, exercise room, sauna, steam, and recreation room.
