Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Mark is an acupuncturist and writer and I am an artist and mother of two. We enjoy hiking, walking on the beach and foreign films.Our children are 14 yr old Gabriel who studies Kung Fu with his Dad and is a computer enthusiast. Our 8 yr old daughter Mikaela loves to make new friends, care for her pets, and do anything active. Mark and I both grew up in San Diego County, and feel lucky we are able to raise our family in this beautiful enriching area.

Why the Owner Chose Encinitas, CA, USA:
Mark and I found this this property shortly after we were married. We have enjoyed remodeling it to our tastes and turning the land into a lush garden. We love the fresh ocean breezes from the ocean, and the privacy our 1/2 acre affords us. We are happy to see our children being active outdoors for a healthy balance in this age of technology.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
What made us fall in love with our home was the feeling of being surrounded by nature, while still being centrally located. It was originally built by an Italian who planted date palms, olive trees and grew his own grapes to make wine. He even built a wood- fired outdoor pizza oven, which was crumbling when we bought the house and had to be taken down. We remodeled the studio to be a home for my Father for three years toward the end of his life, and have enjoyed renting it out the past few years.We have only had good experiences renting, and enjoy meeting new people and making them feel welcome.
