About Torrey Highlands
Torrey Highlands Real Estate
Torrey Highlands real estate includes the West side of Rancho Penasquitos 92129, a small Southern section of Rancho Bernardo 92127, and the East side of Carmel Valley 92130). Homes in Torrey Highlands are both convenient and comfortable. Located off Highway 56 at the Camino Del Sur exit, it’s just a short ten minute drive to the North County San Diego beaches at Del Mar and Solana Beach. In the other direction a few miles East on Highway 56 is Interstate 15, which serves as a lower traffic route to central San Diego, Rancho Bernardo and North Inland San Diego. Torrey Highlands real estate includes houses, townhomes, and condominiums all built since the early 2000’s, and the neighborhood is still expanding.
The schools serving the Torrey Highlands community are part of the Poway Unified School District, which are among the top-rated schools in San Diego County. The local schools have put Torrey Highlands real estate in high demand. Depending upon the house address, children attend either the new Willow Grove Elementary and Black Mountain Middle School, or Deer Canyon Elementary School and Mesa Verde Middle School. Westview High School serves all of the homes in Torrey Highlands, and it is definitely one of the best high schools in San Diego.
