Carmel Valley is one of the fastest growing, newest, and upscale communities in North San Diego County, California.  Due to it proximity to the coast, Del Mar, and Rancho Santa Fe it is considered one of the most desirable communities in Southern California.  Homes in Carmel Valley range from condominiums in the $350K - $800K range and homes from $600K - $15M.  This master planned community was formed by the city of San Diego on February 1, 1975, but construction did not start until 1983. The name Carmel Valley comes from the Carmelite Sisters of Mercy, who established a dairy farm as well as a monastery in the area in approximately 1905.  In 1974  the area was given the formal name North City West in the master plan, however in the early 1900s the original name, Carmel Valley was readopted.  Carmel Valley is bordered to the north by the North City Future Urbanizing Area (NCFUA) and Pacific Highlands Ranch; to the south by Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve and Torrey Hills; to the east by Pacific Highlands Ranch and Del Mar Mesa; and to the west by Interstate 5 and Torrey Pines.  In 2008 the new east-west running state route 56 was completed providing Carmel Valley even more access to upcoming neighborhoods, as well as Interstate 5 to the west and Interstate 15 to the east.
