Torrey Hills – Carmel Valley’s “Small Town”

Tucked away on the southern end of Carmel Valley San Diego, the community of Torrey Hills offers its residents a unique “small town” atmosphere with a location that can’t be beat.  Torrey Hills came to be in the mid-90’s and right from its inception the residents fought hard to establish and protect a community-focused identity, starting with a successful campaign to keep fast food restaurants and gas stations from being a part of the neighborhood.  Instead, Carmel Valley now has one of its most popular meeting spots, the Torrey Hills Town Center, where residents enjoy first class shopping, services, restaurants and a future dog park.  The center is also home to local business and charity events.

San Diego is well known for its active lifestyle and no community embodies this more than Torrey Hills, with its ideal location just minutes from world class beaches and championship golf at famous Torrey Pines.  For those who enjoy life “off the beaten track” Torrey Hills has some of the area’s best hiking and mountain biking with two natural preserve spaces bordering the community, Carmel Mountain Preserve to the north and Los Penasquitos Preserve on the south side.

Carmel Valley San Diego is known for its excellent school system and Torrey Hills’ Ocean Air Elementary is consistently ranked at the top of the county performance scores.  Next to the school is one of San Diego’s newest park and recreation center, which hosts youth sports leagues, training classes and community events like the popular “Movies in the Park”.  The outstanding schools along with great access to Carmel Valley’s thriving business hub, is a major draw for families looking to move to San Diego from across the country.  As more and more qualified professionals in medicine, law and biotech relocate to the Torrey Hills community, both the schools and the Carmel Valley real estate market benefit as a result.
