Carmel Valley, CA is a master-planned community at the base of Carmel Mountain east of Del Mar and La Jolla. It was the last undeveloped coastal mesa in southern California. The name Carmel Mountain comes from the Carmelite Sisters of Mercy who established a monastery and dairy farm on the south side of Carmel Creek in 1905.
Although the community was formally established in 1974, development at Carmel Valley, CA didn’t begin until 1983. The initial plan was conceived as a core development project with building being done only on the mesas, reserving the canyons as natural open areas.
Newer home developments with established parks and recreation areas, larger homes and a central location make Carmel valley, CA a desirable place to live.
Carmel Valley’s most exclusive neighborhood is Santaluz. Santaluz is a fabulous gated community with a beautifully designed clubhouse offering golf, tennis and all of the luxury amenities. The carefully selected décor of the clubhouse exudes elegance, yet the ambience is one of relaxed serenity.
With only 900 home sites on Santaluz’s 3800 acres, it is an exclusive and very private country retreat offering scenic vistas.
