About Homes for Sale in Cardiff By The Sea

Share

nawlinsvegasrusty-1041Known for its charm, Cardiff-by-the-Sea retains its small village hospitality. Located north of San Diego, Cardiff-by-the-Sea has warm sunny days and cool evenings which prevail throughout the year.

Cardiff-by-the-Sea is located in North San Diego County, the southern most county in the Western United States. With six miles of rugged coastline and 21.5 square miles of land, Encinitas enjoys ocean views and a great surfing culture from San Elijo Lagoon on the southern terminus to Batiquitos Lagoon to the north.

From an 1800’s gold rush in nearby Julian to the arrival of celebrities such as Charlie Chaplin in the early 1900’s, at least two establishments offer glimpses into the rich Encinitas past. Visit the San Dieguito Historical Museum to learn about Indian tribes that once dominated the region. Or sit in the historic La Paloma Theatre (possibly the first ‘talking’ theatre in the rural United States when it opened its doors in 1928) to watch a current movie.

Beaches, flowers, peace and love welcome you to Cadiff-by-the-Sea. IBM, teeing off for golf and a Starbucks latte in a plastic cup might greet you, as well. Encinitas is a place where diversity rules and is celebrated daily. When the communities of Leucadia, Cardiff-by-the-Sea, Olivenhain and old and new Encinitas incorporated together as the City of Encinitas in 1986, their union on paper did not mean that each would give up its identity and character.

In stark contrast, prepare for a time warp with new plazas, tract housing and a bridge where carts from Encinitas Ranch Golf Course pass over the fast moving, stoplight-driven El Camino Real. There are lots of beautiful homes near the beach. From the opulent Self Realization Retreat and Hermitage where world travelers come to meditate and look out over the Pacific Ocean, to the neighborly Moonlight Beach, where lovers look out at the same ocean and snuggle, cheek to cheek, life is beach after beach in Encinitas.

If you want waves, Swami’s the place. It is located at the southern end of Encinitas and offers world-class surfing. If you want to take off your clothes and soak up rays, The Boneyard at 4th and D Streets is a spot where you can do that. .. Activities for visitors include shopping, eating, sunbathing, swimming, surfing, museums and galleries, meditation and enlightenment and flower power. Once recognized as “the flower capital of the world,” and spot where the renowned Ecke poinsettia was introduced in 1923, drop by one of the commercial nurseries open to the public and purchase a traditional poinsettia or be the first on your block with one of the new release plants. (Poinsettias grow rapidly in southern California and the innocent holiday bouquet planted in a yard can take off unexpectedly and become a tree.) Speaking of trees, Quail Botanical Garden claims it has the largest bamboo collection in the US. It is considered one of the best gardens in San Diego County and well worth a small admission fee charged.

Schools Cardiff has a school district with 2 schools: Cardiff Elementary and Ada Harris. Cardiff Elementary Schools has grades K-3, Ada Harris Elementary School has grades 3-6. http://www.cardiffschools.com/cardiffschools/site/default.asp Real Estate Cardiff-by-the-Sea has attractive condos/ townhomes near the beach starting at $500,000. Homes including beach properties are ranging form $700,000 – $5 million.
