La Jolla Mesa Estates
A quiet complex in northern UTC, La Jolla Mesa Estates is just a short bike ride or walk to UTC shopping and restaurants. Located just off Genesee Avenue a half mile north of La Jolla Village Drive, this complex is close to the UTC area hi-tech firms in Sorrento Valley. These are two story townhomes, two or three bedrooms, ranging in size from 1140 to 1358 square feet, with 2 car garages. Very popular for UCSD students and a great investment complex.
First envisioned in the late 1960s by La Jolla’s elite, La Jolla Mesa Estates was conceived as a collection of fine, small homes somewhat further inland to be used temporarily when the “June gloom” left La Jolla’s older waterfront and Mount Soledad homes shrouded in fog in the months of May, June and July. With its much more cosmopolitan location just 10,000 feet away from the seashore the weather is much sunnier at La Jolla Mesa Estates, while retaining the same mild temperatures year round. At La Jolla Mesa Estates every day is like the first day of spring!
Construction started in 1973 and continued for several years. Each unit is different and reflects the individual tastes and personalities of each owner.
In the 1970s La Jolla Mesa Estates was on a vast undeveloped mesa. Today La Jolla Mesa Estates is dead smack in the heart of La Jolla’s newest downtown, within walking distance of everything that matters. For those who travel by motorcar La Jolla Mesa Estates is just 90 seconds away from either the 5 or 805 freeways, and minutes away from the 52, 163, 8 and others, all while being far enough away not to be troubled by traffic, noise or congestion.
Exclusive Torrey Pines (San Diego) coastal zip code 92121 lies between the zip codes of old La Jolla 92037 and Del Mar 92014.
Heated pool, spa, and separate recreational clubhouse with separate kitchen, baths and pool table. Just like Club Med, every day!
Very low density area, only 14 dwelling units/acre. Less desirable developments like the south-of-La-Jolla-Village-Drive Renaissance can pack in neighbors at 45 dwelling units per acre. 136 privately owned homes on about 9 acres. Lots of green space.
La Jolla Mesa Estates anchors the northernmost tip of Platinum Triangle area of the Golden Triangle north of La Jolla Village Drive. It’s 15 minutes from Symphony Hall, downtown San Diego and 15 minutes from Encinitas and North County. People stuck in homes on top of the old La Jolla Mesa need 30 minutes just to get to the freeway.
The location and convenience are perfect; the traffic is going in the opposite direction morning and night to anywhere in La Jolla, San Diego and southern California area.
