BIRD ROCK La Jolla, California 92037
Bird Rock is a well established neighborhood and is the furthest South Western corner of La Jolla. It borders North Pacific Beach just to the South. Bird Rock Elementary School received a coveted perfect “10” rating by greatschools.com, and has proven to be a leading draw for those raising children of the elementary school age for over fifty years. Sellers have benefitted from strong selling prices due to this fact as well. Interestingly, prices on streets walking distance from the school rival those for properties even closer to the ocean as many of its residents treasure the opportunity to walk their children to and from school daily. La Jolla Boulevard, the main thoroughfare that leads to La Jolla Village, is lined with local boutiques, neighborhood eateries, and spas in the heart of Bird Rock. To the west of La Jolla Blvd. are a few parallel streets that run directly along the ocean. As you move east through Bird Rock away from the ocean, the elevation in some areas is slightly sloped, which provides some coastal views for many. Bird rock is a unique community within itself. Its residents support Bird Rock’s local restaurants, coffee shops, and boutiques. It is adjacent to a supermarket, and also close to shops in Pacific Beach.
House styles: Many of the homes in central Bird Rock began as modest cottage style homes. Strong property values and area desirability have led many homeowners to remodel, expand, or completely re-build, while a small percentage still remains in their original form. The age of most of the original structures date back to the early/mid 1900’s. In the direction of the ocean there are many larger and more modern and varied architectural styles. A handful of well established condo complexes offer more affordable living options for the area.
Just a few years ago The Seahaus condominium complex was completed providing 138 units with 27 unique floor plans, and ocean views from many of the units. This was one of the largest scale movements towards modern architecture in Bird Rock in recent history and the units sold very quickly.
Special: Enjoy a fabulous view at the lookout park spot, where Chelsea crosses Camino De La Costa
