Where the Surf meets the Turf
Life in Del Mar
Del Mar’s seaside hideaway feel is why so many sun and surf seekers are magnetically drawn to live here. Set approximately 20 minutes north of downtown San Diego, Del Mar is defined by calm saltwater lagoons, beautiful beaches, and custom homes lining the hills that cascade into seaside bluffs above the Pacific. The quaint historic downtown of Del Mar Village dates back to the 1880s. Today it is lined with boutique shops, gourmet restaurants, and the luxury hotel and spa L’Auberge. Turn west toward the ocean and you will find the well-known Powerhouse and Seagrove Parks, perfect for a picnic on the grass overlooking the surf break. Whether you are looking to have a family beach outing, catch a day of horse racing at the Del Mar Fairgrounds and Racetrack, or enjoy a good meal at a café, living in Del Mar offers all the perks of a beautiful beach town with a timeless air.
Homes in Del Mar are as varied as you can imagine. Touring through the towns zigzagging streets you will find oceanfront luxury homes, quaint beach cottages, beach-centric condominiums, and some track home developments.
