One of San Diego’s most affluent districts , La Jolla, whose name is a modification of the term “La Joya,” is rightly known as the jewel of Southern California. La Jolla is a beachside community built on 7 miles of unspoiled coastline on the Pacific Ocean , surrounded by the sea on 3 sides and by Mount Soledad on land.
La Jolla also features world-class dining, art galleries, museums, luxurious hotels, and world-class boutiques. Prospect Street, La Jolla’s main commercial thoroughfare, is frequently compared to Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills . In addition to luxury and glamor, La Jolla is a state-of-the-art biomedical research and higher education center. This region is home to the San Diego campus of the University of California, the Scripps Institute of Oceanography, the Scripps Research Institute (one of the largest non-profit biomedical research organizations), and the Salk Institute.
La Jolla is renowned for its striking natural beauty and pristine white sand beaches along its long coastline. Surfers, divers, and even seal watchers flock to La Jolla’s public beaches to enjoy the surf, sand, and wildlife. La Jolla also boasts not one, but two golf courses, including the Torrey Pines Golf Course, which hosts an annual event on the PGA Tour.
As a leading beachside community in Southern California just a few minutes’ drive from Downtown San Diego, La Jolla has some of the highest home prices in the country. The median list price for a single-family home in La Jolla in August 2014 was just under $ 3 million while the median sales price for the same period was $ 788,000. Keep in mind that in La Jolla you will find a large number of luxurious properties that are listed in 5, 10 or 20 million dollars, which disproportionately skews the average price. Median prices are a more accurate representation of La Jolla Real Estate.
