General Description

One of the best to live

Tucked into the northwestern corner of San Diego, California, Carmel Valley is an affluent suburban planned community, one of the newest in the region. Formed on February 1, 1975, by the City of San Diego, its name is derived from the Carmelite Sisters of Mercy, who ran a dairy farm as well as a monastery in the area in 1905. In 1974, the area was given an institutional name in its master plan (“North City West”), but the traditional name Carmel Valley was later readopted in the early 1990s.

Caramel Valley is bordered to the south by Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve and Torrey Hills and to the north by Del Mar and Rancho Santa Fe. The city’s western border ends at Interstate 5 and Torrey Pines, and its eastern with Pacific Highlands Ranch and Del Mar Mesa. The city is close to the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, where you will find one of two species of the endangered Torrey Pine.
