About Torrey Highlands

Torrey Highlands is one of the most desirable neighborhoods along the 56 freeway. While it’s officially part of the 92129 ZIP code and considered by some to be part of Rancho Peñasquitos, Torrey Highlands is a distinctive residential neighborhood with a lot to offer prospective home buyers.

Situated to the east of Carmel Valley and south of Santaluz, Del Sur, and 4S Ranch, Torrey Highlands marries the feel of a large master-planned community with an intimate neighborhood setting. The population of Torrey Highlands is less than half that of neighboring communities! Built primarily during the 2000’s, the homes in Torrey Highlands boast modern floorplans that appeal to today’s home buyer – particularly those working from home or balancing multi-generational living.

Torrey Highlands boasts an overall A-rating from Niche.com, thanks to its top-scoring public schools, family-centric feel, and abundance of outdoor recreation.
