Encinitas house description

This beautiful, 3000 sq. ft, spacious 4 bedroom 3.25 bath home is located in one of the best neighborhoods in Encinitas. Perfect for a family get-together. It's situated above Hwy 101 so you can walk to the many great restaurants and shops. You can also walk to Swami's Beach, D Street and Moonlight Beach through the new underground railroad tunnel.

The home is on a little under half an acre which is unusual so close to the ocean. Plenty of privacy in the backyard and on the 3 decks. The largest deck faces the ocean and has seating for at least 9 people, a fire pit and a heater for relaxing conversation, reading the paper over coffee in the morning and a cocktail after a day downtown shopping or at the beach. This deck has a huge umbrella so you can sit outside in the afternoon and enjoy the view without getting too much sun exposure - perfect for a nap!

Kids of all ages love to play on the swing set and run around the yard.

Enjoy the romantic and private outdoor fireplace.

This home has spectacular ocean views from the three bedrooms upstairs. The upstairs master has a spectacular 180 degree ocean view. There is a private deck off the downstairs master bedroom facing east and into the backyard.

This home is well known in the area and is a landmark home in the San Diego Architectural Book and the Encinitas Historical Society's book of landmark homes.

The upstairs master bedroom takes up the whole west side of the home and has a tremendous ocean view. There is a king-sized sleigh bed, a TV and a chaise. The adjoining private bathroom has an over-sized shower with a regular shower faucet and a rain shower faucet, a jacuzzi tub and large closet. The other two bedrooms share a bathroom. Both have terrific ocean views; one room has a queen-size sleigh bed and the other has a full-size sleigh bed. All of the bedrooms mattresses are new and there is plenty of closet space. The home is very comfortable and spacious. Guest comment: 'We had six adults and seven young children and there was plenty of space and privacy for all of us.'

The downstairs master bedroom has a newly renovated full bath. French doors lead to a private deck facing the backyard. There is a queen-size sleigh bed and TV

There is a side lot for parking and safe loading and unloading of children, groceries and luggage. It is gated for added security. The yard is large and kids have a great time running around.

The kitchen opens to a deck which also leads up to the over-sized ocean view outdoor living room. Guests enjoy all of the decks and the backyard and spend most of their time outside when they're not at the beach or walking on 101 down below, going to Legoland, Sea World or The San Diego Zoo.

The dining room has a very long table with benches on each side and chairs on either end, great for large meals and to enjoy the ocean view. Guest comment, 'It was great to have such a large table for a family meal. The teenagers sat down with us and we had a great dinner while watching the sunset.'

The living room has a great ocean view, plenty of seating and a TV and DVD.

The outdoor kitchen is large and seats four. There is a state-of-the-art, built-in Alfresco BBQ with a 5-knob burner, rotisserie and stove. There's a radio, lighting in the center of the island to put beverages and a refrigerator.

The indoor kitchen has a stainless steel refrigerator, moving island, compactor, dishwasher, a breakfast nook and ocean view.

This is a very comfortable, elegant home with a neutral decor of dark hardwood flooring, new windows, new window coverings and some architectural gestures and features from the 1920's. There is original tile work in the powder bathroom that matches the fireplace hearth, carved mahogany doors with crystal knobs and an original carved facade on the over-sized fireplace in the dining room.

This is a great home for a reunion, guy's surf weekend, girlfriend getaway or family vacation. Located within 5 minutes of a golf course, Del Mar Race Track, Legoland and walking distance to the beach, 30 restaurants, shops and 2 parks!

The kitchen is stocked with pots and pans, dishes, glassware, coffee cups, utensils. There are beach towels and plenty of towels in each bathroom.
Keywords: 4-bedroom house, close to beach, walk to the best restaurants and shops in North County on the Coast. Encinitas Coastal is a surf town and classic beach community. Anyone who comes here loves it and everyone who lives here is the luckiest person East of Hawaii.
