Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We have lived in this neighborhood for 25 years, of all the places I have lived this is the best! My wife and I came here for college and never left. We now have 3 generations living within a 10 mile radius, that is how great this beach town is. Friendly, healthy, safe and so much to do. We would love to share Encinitas with you!

Why the Owner Chose Encinitas, CA, USA:
This cottage is one block away from the beach and every single house a block away is a multimillion dollar property. Our street is not a through street so there is almost no traffic, except for the surfers of course! The cottage is stocked with beach toys, ping pong table available on request, and you won't even need your car, everything is walking distance. If you want to strike out farther you can take the train anywhere North or South, the station is just about a mile away. Take a look at a map and see how ideally central coastal Encinitas is to everything.
