Located at the north edge of La Jolla, near renowned Torrey Pines Golf Course and above the rugged cliffs and Black’s Beach of the North Shore, La Jolla Farms is an exclusive area in which grand estates with expansive grounds and magnificent sea views have been built and sold for as much as $16 million. “The Farms,” as it is called by local La Jollans, offers distinct prestige and a convenient location with easy access to Del Mar, La Jolla Shores, UCSD, University City, and freeways.
Blackhorse Farms, a gated community on Torrey Pines, across from the University of California, San Diego, offers exquisite condominium residences on leased land, and there are many older La Jolla Farms homes in a secluded neighborhood nearby.
The University of California’s San Diego campus, on a vast track of land in The Farms, offers exceptional academic and recreational opportunities for students and families in the area. Black’s Beach, infamous for sunbathers’ stubborn adherence to its informal “clothing optional” status, offers great surfing in a secluded location. Access is difficult and restricted, and many are caught on the cliffs every year while trying to scale the hillside, necessitating dramatic rescues by lifeguards and fire crews.
Planned Residential Developments in La Jolla Farms
Blackhorse Farms: GATED
With award-winning architecture at the former site of an equestrian center directly across from UCSD’s campus on Torrey Pines Road, these 121 beautifully-designed two-story condominium homes built in 1989 on a gated leasehold property offer five floor plans of approximately 2174-2975sf and a notably strict Homeowners’ Association. Living in Blackhorse offers the bonus of a HOA association with the Estancia Resort next door—meaning huge discounts on spa services and guest stays—and enjoyment of UCSD’s recreational, educational, and cultural resources (including the La Jolla Playhouse,) just steps away. Perfectly located for easy access to freeways, Del Mar, Golden Triangle.
