One of the most desirable areas to live in La Jolla, California is the Bird Rock neighborhood. Nestled within this community is an ocean front park called "Calumet Park" that tends to be the main meeting quarters for residents who live here and one of the most desirable sections to live in the Bird Rock area. One of the reasons is that Calumet Avenue is an ocean front street that runs parallel to the Pacific Ocean and has awe inspiring ocean front views. The park is located in the middle of this street with one of the best vantage points to take in the great views. It's no surprise that many who live here use this park when walking their dogs, throwing frisbee with their kids or sitting on the benches watching the waves come crashing into the beach.
Real Estate prices will vary a lot depending on which side the street the home is located. Homes located on the ocean front will command a premium in price compared to homes located across the street that have little to no views. The area is still expensive compared to other areas of La Jolla due to it's close proximity to the beach as well as all the shopping and restaurants that are located in the Bird Rock area. Expect to find homes located on the non-view side to be priced in the mid $2 million dollar range. This is not true of all homes like the home located at 5445 Calumet that was located on the opposite side of the street but still had ocean views since the park sat directly in front of it allowing it to have panoramic views. That home was listed for $4,999,000 and sold for $4,450,000 which just closed last month on October 03, 2018. Oceanfront homes are often priced in the $7 to $10 million dollar range depending on the size and condition of the home.
