Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We bought the property when our Grandson was born in Encinitas and fell in love with the prospect of our son living in the main house and having a place for us to stay when we visit.

Why the Owner Chose Encinitas, CA, USA:
We loved the 1940's villa main house with the unique private 1 bedroom casita over the garage. The grounds are beautiful and the area is somewhat secluded in a residential neighborhood.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
Beautiful second story Casita setting overlooking Encinitas Beach community with endless sunsets and large deck for outside activity and and a 'peak a boo' view of the ocean.
