La Jolla, or the “Jewel City”, is often synonymous with San Diego living. Located about 13 miles north of downtown San Diego, this upscale haven is known for its stunning beaches and luxurious homes.
La Jolla is actually split into several neighborhoods, one of which is Bird Rock; here are three reasons you might love living in the Bird Rock community, located in southern La Jolla adjacent to Pacific Beach.
1. The beach!
Bird Rock is home to one of the best surf spots in San Diego - the rocky, ruggedly beautiful Windansea Beach. If you’re not quite ready to ride the waves, the neighborhood also offers a number of walking trails along the La Jolla coastline and three community parks with stunning ocean views.
2. Eclectic yet upscale “downtown” district.
La Jolla Boulevard, which runs through Bird Rock’s main shopping and dining district, has a plethora of quirky, independent shops and restaurants. Bird Rock Coffee Roasters, winner of the 2012 Roaster of the Year Award, is a local morning staple, while Beaumont’s is a popular place to wind down the evening with happy hour. Bird Rock’s downtown area features many other services in addition to dining, including dry cleaners, fitness studios, hair salons, and boutique shops, and has a more laidback feel than other shopping districts in La Jolla.
3. La Jolla school system.
La Jolla is known for its top-notch schools, and the Bird Rock neighborhood is no exception. In fact, Bird Rock Elementary School recently received the California Distinguished Schools Award for educational excellence. And the nearby La Jolla High School has been listed as one of the top high schools in the nation by both Newsweek and US News.
Bird Rock offers a range of housing options, from condos and apartments to single-family homes and beach bungalows. The median home price in La Jolla in general is around $1.6 million. I have lots of experience helping people buy a home in coastal San Diego. So if you're looking for a luxury coastal community with a laidback attitude, contact me about buying a home in Bird Rock (or buying a home in La Jolla in general) today!
