Encinitas townhome description

Families love this 1950s beach cottage on charming 3rd street between C and D streets. This single story townhouse feels like the beach bungalow it was born to be. No need for a car on this vacation. Park it in the garage and walk 1 block to Moonlight beach or walk down a couple blocks to popular downtown Encinitas where you can enjoy top notch restaurants, nightlife, a charming movie theater, taverns, pubs and a Whole Foods grocery. The Encinitas train station is a short walk, and the Coaster train can take you 6 minutes to Del Mar race track (via shuttle from Solana Station stop), Old Town, Downtown San Diego (and can even take you to the airport with a short bus from the downtown Santa Fe station). Disneyland, Legoland, SeaWorld and Wild Animal Park are all nearby.
The large Master bedroom has a queen-sized bed and private bathroom and a walk in closet. (Just a heads up, there is a second floor unit built above this bedroom and the dining room. You will hear footsteps and movement from above when the other unit is occupied. The rest of the house has no building above, as it was the original bungalow). The second bedroom has a queen bed, while the third bedroom has twin beds that can convert to a king. The second bath sits between these bedrooms. There are also two twin mattresses that can be used as extra beds stored in the master closet.
The remodeled kitchen has granite counter-tops, stainless appliances and gas stove. The new BBQ sits on a private side patio just off the dining room.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: Our children grew up spending summers on Moonlight Beach. We tease them about going from diapers to graduation photos on Moonlight, in the blink of an eye. Moonlight beach is a local treasure that has been an important part of our family history. We currently live about 4 miles from this beach cottage in Encinitas. It has been a dream to own a home near Moonlight and down town Encinitas. Now we can enjoy this dream come true with our two college kids when they come home to visit. We are happy to share this dream with you too.

              The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
              Encinitas is quick becoming a California coastal favorite! This is the very best location in town. We can walk easily to our favorite dining, pubs, coffee spots, and later to a movie. This beach house has charm! Not many rentals have a front yard with flowers and elbow room that you can sit and watch the day go by from. This cottage is right out of the movies.
