Property 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, 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.

Pedestrian underpass to the beach at the end of our block at Santa Fe to Swamis beach access. Less than half a mile. 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, a second couch and a love seat, providing plenty of seating space for the whole family. There is a brand new 55 inch high definition flat screen smart TV (11/2015), with Bose surround sound. Enjoy premium movie channels, DVR, Netflix, or watch your favorite DVD or BlueRay. Children and adults have fun together with the Wii gaming console. 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 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 is extra large and can sleep 4 with a comfortable Queen bed, and two single twin beds, 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.
We have added a Queen size sofa sleeper in the living room area to create a couple extra sleeping spots if needed. There are parking spaces on the property for up to 3 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. Also nearby, Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, Anaheim - 1 ½ hours away.

Amenities: Baby Grand Piano, Jacuzzi tub, Sauna, 3 Flat Screen High Definition TV's , Cable with premium channels, DVD, High-speed wireless internet, Fully furnished kitchen with Granite countertops, Microwave, Stove, Oven, Subzero Refrigerator, Dishwasher, Cooking Utensils and linens provided.

There are several local beachfront restaurants for fine dining and quaint coffee houses for reading and relaxing. Shopping is everywhere… local boutiques, outlet and outdoor malls. Amazing health and beauty spas surround you including the newly remodeled La Costa Resort. Plenty of great Yoga centers are also in the neighborhood. You can also enjoy live theater, cinemas, Padres and Charger games, Concerts, or the energized nightlife of the downtown San Diego Gaslamp Quarter. The nearby Encinitas Coaster station conveniently runs back and forth from Oceanside to downtown San Diego, often shuttling Padres fans to Petco Park or sightseers to downtown … a hassle free way to travel.

This is the perfect place for a great vacation!

You will find everything you need in this area to enjoy a fabulous vacation. And when the weather is cool, sit in front of a crackling outdoor fireplace enjoying the peace and solitude of a quiet evening. Night time brings wonderful, relaxing sleep with the sound of the waves and the scent of the ocean. Whether your vacation is adventure and action packed or filled with relaxing days and evenings, you will leave Cardiff-by-the-Sea refreshed and renewed.

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. We personally have annual memberships to Sea World and the Zoo/Wild Animal Park because we enjoy visiting them often, year round. Del Mar Racetrack and Fairgrounds, Balboa Park and Museums, Stephen Birch Aquarium in La Jolla, Seaport Village downtown, San Diego Gaslamp District, La Jolla and Del Mar Villages, Old Town, Carlsbad Outlet Shopping Center and Flower Fields. Also nearby, Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, Anaheim - 1 ½ hours 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, San Diego County, CA, USA:
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 5 year old. We live in the private loft space above the garage when we are not away traveling, which is more often since he has started school. We really appreciate being so close to the beach an 8 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 an 8 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 restaurants and cafes. Many great spas, yoga, and shops. But mostly we enjoy just chilling at home, taking in the view.
