Muirlands

Nestled on the western slopes of Mt. Soledad, Muirlands is one of the oldest and most exclusive areas of La Jolla.  Its multi-million dollar custom homes, built mainly between the 1930s and the 1980s, are situated on spacious lots surrounded by old-growth trees and lush vegetation.  The panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean are breathtaking.   Although secluded and private, the enclave is minutes from both the coast and the Village of La Jolla with its one-of-a-kind boutiques, first-class restaurants, and vibrant arts scene.

Some of Southern California’s most fabulous homes are found within Muirlands, which is bordered by the La Jolla Country Club on the north, La Jolla Scenic Drive South on the east, and La Jolla Mesa Drive on the south.

Because Harold Muir, who founded the community in 1926, believed that homes should be surrounded by gardens, he subdivided the land into large lots.  In addition he plotted the sites at various elevations in order to ensure that views of the ocean would not be blocked.  Muirlands’ famously winding roads are testament to the fact that his vision endures.

The architecture in this community of approximately 1000 residences is varied, and many of the older homes have been renovated.  However, all display an elegance and grace that befit the beauty of the environment.  There are no condos in Muirlands.

Many buyers seek out Muirlands not only for its peacefulness and beauty but also for its excellent public schools, most of which are within walking distance. This important resource helps make the area great for families.

Part of “Old La Jolla,” prestigious Muirlands, with its gorgeous views and magnificent homes, is one of California’s most sought after places to live for those seeking luxury and exclusivity.
