Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: I'm a civil Engineer and my wife was a professor in a community college. We've been living in San Diego for the last 25 years where our 2 daughters and a son grew up and went to school here, when we built the house, each one contributed in the style, and the color of his/her room as well as the bathroom. We are almost retirees who are looking to travel and enjoy our time in exploring other parts of the world.
Why the Owner Chose Encinitas, CA, USA:
When me & my wife decided to move to the coastal area , our first stop was Encinitas, we drove to Arden Dr. and saw the sign for sale in front of our property, we contacted the real estate agent and expressed our interest to see the property from inside, she told us she'll be there in 15 minutes, as soon as we walked through the open gate, we saw 4 huge avocado trees that covered the whole front yard, we're mesmerized by the tropical feel of the property, then we walked to the back yard and found fresh tomatoes planted in the ground and my wife picked up one tomato and tasted it, her face lit up with a smile and said I ate from the soil of this house and hopefully It will be ours. Sure enough, we put a deposit that same day and 2 months later it was ours, we rented it for almost 2 years until the plans for the new construction of the house was approved by the city of Encinitas. Being a civil Engineer made it very easy for me to start building the house of our dreams, we started in January of 2004 and by September of that year we moved in and finished the interior while we're living here. We kept the Avocado trees and since then, I feel that every day in this house is a vacation day, it's perfect location within walking distance to Scrips hospital, the new emergency room, 2 minutes drive to the free way 5, and to the shopping center where Vons, Rite Aid, 24 hour fitness, pizza, subway, Mexican and Japanese restaurants plus living in Encinitas made the picture more perfect because this city offers so much that made our life so enjoyable.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home is located in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Encinitas (Highland); the fact of being 5 minutes walking distance to the Swamis Beach through the new underground railroad tunnel where we can watch the sun set every day or stroll to the most beautiful Self Realization gardens for meditation and Relaxation, or just have a bite at one of the many eateries in down town Encinitas, you never get bored here. Our house is approximately 30-40 minutes drive to many attractions you don't want miss while visiting San Diego, such as Sea World, San Diego Zoo, Wild Animal Park, Balboa Park, Old Town, Sea Port Village, Coronado Island, but also don't miss closer attractions at our neighboring cities such as Carlsbad where is Lego Land, the Carlsbad Outlets and flower fields, or Del Mar where is the Fairgrounds & Race Track.
