Encinitas Real Estate Spotlight (Everything You Need To Know) 


In this Encinitas Real Estate Spotlight, we’ll cover everything you need to know…

Encinitas is a popular up-and-coming beach city in the North County area of San Diego, California. The classic beach town is the perfect location for individuals looking to buy their first home, next home, or a beautiful vacation beach property. 

This coastal city, recently named among the 20 best surf towns in the world by National Geographic, is a 5 1/2-mile stretch of gorgeous beach that has a wide variety of houses, condos and other properties able to accommodate all square footage requirements & budgets.  

Are you looking for amazing San Diego real estate near the beach? One of the coolest cities on the coast we’d like to suggest is Encinitas. Conveniently located between San Diego and Los Angeles. Just 25 miles north of San Diego downtown, the city of Encinitas can be divided into five distinct areas.

One area, Old Encinitas, is divided from New Encinitas by a low lying coastal ridge. It has a lot of character with its mix of businesses and homes and eclectic architectural styles. The newer region offers more new developments including shopping opportunities and golf courses. They both offer a great variety of property for sale, featuring both houses and condos of all types and sizes.

Olivenhain is another area, which connects to Rancho Santa Fe by way of Encinitas Blvd.

Another popular area to look for an Encinitas home for sale is in Leucadia. This older, more established community featured streets lined with trees and cultural attractions such as art galleries, boutiques, and fashionable restaurants.

Cardiff is the southernmost oceanfront community features streets named for British cities and classical composers are home to the Lux Art Institute as well as the San Elijo Campus of Mira Costa College.
