If you’re looking for your dream home to buy in San Diego, you will want to consider buying property or a home for sale in the Encinitas community of Leucadia.
Named for the Ionian Island of Lefkada, the quaint North San Diego County community was formed in the late 19th century by a group of British spiritualists who were looking for religious freedom.
Streets pay homage to the culture with names such as Hymettus, Daphne, Phoebe, and Neptune. This old-fashioned beach town, which ranks as the top beach community for surfing on the California coast, is situated on Coast Highway 101 just south of Carlsbad.
The main thoroughfare in Leucadia is lined with a grove of eucalyptus trees and visitors will immediately feel nostalgia for the community’s history and culture.

The area is a popular spot for outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy all sorts of different outdoor adventures and activities.
