Cardiff by the Sea house description

Cardiff Jewel: Indulge yourself by waking up to the sight and sound of the ocean. Step out from your private patio or deck and take in the beach life. Fall in love with Cardiff-by-the-Sea, a casual, romantic village with wonderful, unique beaches for swimming,surfing, walking, or running. Excellent restaurants, markets and local joints are all within walking distance. Enjoy magical sunsets, and see why this paradise is one of the most desired vacation areas of the world.

This stunningly decorated, recently remodeled 3,000 SF, 4 Bedroom, 2 Bath home sits on a rare and spacious ¼ acre lot in the heart of the famous Cardiff Composer District, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Located only a few blocks away, we are TRULY walking distance to the beach. It takes just minutes to walk down to Cardiff State Beach or the famous Swami’s and Pipes beaches that are also well known surf spots. It is also an easy walk to the well known Seaside Market, beachside restaurants, boutiques and shops. Less than a mile from Moonlight Beach and the revitalized downtown Encinitas.

***NEW - Completed Feb. 2013 - Pedestrian underpass to the beach at the end of our block at Santa Fe to Swamis. Walk to beach in 5 minutes without crossing over the train tracks.


Cardiff by the Sea is a local beach town which is part of the city of Encinitas, located at the Southern end of the City of Encinitas. The City of Solana Beach is just 3 miles South of Cardiff, filled with more great restaurants, the Cedros Design District, exciting nightlife, and a convenient Amtrak train station.

This classic and tastefully decorated home features a dramatic 16 ft wall of windows overlooking the ocean. The spacious gourmet kitchen has beautiful granite and lots of counter space. An open floor plan allows the main living areas to blend together comfortably, providing expansive ocean views from the many windows. The dining room has beautiful open beam ceilings, a dining table that seats up to 10, an elegant baby grand piano. The kitchen table and counter top bar seat up to 7 more for casual dining. The family room has a very large and cozy couch with plenty of seating space, and a 42” high definition flat screen TV with Bose surround sound. The large outdoor deck has a gas BBQ grill, and a large L shaped couch with plenty of seating. It is great for soaking in the sun or enjoying the cool evenings. The master bedroom has a beautiful California King size bed, a 42' high definition flat screen TV and double French doors that open to a private patio with an ocean view. The master bath also has an ocean view from the oversized Jacuzzi tub, a separate shower with dual shower heads, and double vanity sinks. The second and third bedrooms have Queen size beds. The fourth bedroom has a comfortable Queen size Murphy bed, and a single twin bed, double French doors that open to a private patio with an ocean view. There are hardwood floors throughout the main living areas, hardwood floors in two of the bedrooms and plush carpeting in the master and downstairs bedrooms. The second bathroom also has a Sauna. The laundry room is located just off the master bedroom. There are parking spaces on the property for up to 2 cars. Off street parking is also available.

Legoland, Sea World, The San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park are all great, well known attractions, wonderful for children, but equally enjoyed by adults. The quaint village of Del Mar, its famous beaches and the Fairgrounds are just 10 minutes away. Historic Balboa Park and Museums are fantastic. Stephen Birch Aquarium, Seaport Village downtown, San Diego Gaslamp District, La Jolla and Old Town are great! Carlsbad Outlet Shopping Center and the Flower Fields are just 10 minutes away.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: My boys and I have always been drawn to the ocean. San Diego natives, my father was a commercial fisherman in San Diego. We love the outdoors,riding bikes, playing sports and entertaining. We love looking at the ocean and the daily changes it takes on. The view is never the same. We purchased this home as our primary residence, but the boys are grown and away at college so we decided to share our gem with other people who might share our appreciation. We have always dreamed of being walking distance from the beach and seeing the ocean daily.

              Why the Owner Chose Cardiff by the Sea:
              We purchased this home as our primary residence. But the big boys are grown and on their own, so we have decided to share it with other families by renting it. Since then our family grew again and we now have a 3 year old. We live in the private loft space above the garage when we are not away traveling. We really appreciate being so close to the beach a 5 minute walk. We can hear and smell the ocean.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We like to walk to downtown Cardiff or downtown Encinitas.The beaches are uncrowded and private, just a 5 minute walk. Everything you need is walking distance. We are situated right between two great beaches which are also well known surf spots (Swamis and Pipes)There are great restraunts and cafes. Many great spas, yoga, and shops. But mostly we enjoy just chilling at home, taking in the view.
