Property description

Welcome to Neptune's Song in Encinitas on the legendary Neptune Avenue.

The lullaby of ocean waves floats through this exclusive luxury 3 bedroom master suite home overlooking the Pacific in the Encinitas enclave of Leucadia, a hidden gem in San Diego County. Recognized as one of the most quintessential surf towns in the world and one of the last frontiers of laid-back, truly authentic beach locales, the beaches here are pristine, the locals are joyful and friendly, and the vibe is exceptionally relaxing.

This corner property is completely enclosed, so once you enter the gates you feel like you’ve found your own private oasis, where you can watch the moon sink into the Pacific and fall asleep to her song. Built only 7 years ago, the completely custom home with ocean views from just about every room sits on a raised lot and faces the southeast, so the place is filled with light all day.

The home will steal your heart in the first night. Truly custom-built and devoted to the surrounding environment, the 3,200 square feet of living space is graciously spread out across a split-level floor plan that allows the best of both worlds: privacy and community. All 3 bedrooms offer full private bathrooms, allowing enough space for the perfect multi-family or friend get-away. There’s plenty of room for everyone to hang out in the huge family room downstairs or the great room overlooking the ocean upstairs, where a fully stocked chef's dream kitchen awaits the culinary artist. Fire up the grill on the deck for a down-home bbq, or really get creative and make your own pizza in the wood-fired pizza oven.

This house has something for everyone. Like to golf? There’s a three-hole putting green in the backyard. Like to read? Pick out a book from the library and find your quiet space in one of the home’s hidden nooks or sneak up to the secret roof-top deck with 360 degree whitewater views. The family room still reverbs with music from its former life as a recording space for multi-platinum, Grammy-winning artists, where you will find an antique (and beautifully playable) restored square grand piano, a six-string acoustic guitar, a ukulele, and the voice of the brave family member singing soon-to-be memories. Netflix, Amazon Prime, and hundreds of TV channels are on the two 50" flat-panel televisions and overstuffed beanbags and a Play Station 3 with plenty of games for the kids are there for the playing.

And when it’s beach time, bring along the 4 provided beach chairs, umbrella, 2 boogie boards, 8-foot foam surfboard, sand toys and enough beach towels for everyone. The house is perfectly situated in the middle of two of the best surf breaks and beaches, Grandview and Beacon's Beach. Both serve as beautiful vacation playgrounds and are a short 5-minute walk from the house.

You won’t find a shortage of things to do around town, so leave your car keys on the kitchen table and walk to the nearby local-favorite restaurants, grocery store, yoga center, nightlife and more. The house is a short drive to all the famous San Diego tourist attractions, including Sea World, San Diego Zoo or the Safari Park, USS Midway, Balboa Park, Coronado Island, and Legoland (5 minutes away). And just ask us about local tips, off-the-beaten path adventures, or where the best Mexican food is, and we’ll be happy to share our favorite places with you!

Pets are welcome! This home was built for dogs. Let us know if you will be bringing along your extended family, there is a $100 pet fee. We include up to two dog beds, treats, poo bags and a friendly environment with their own private entrance.

What else makes this home unique… well, Grammy-winning and Platinum-selling artists have written songs and recorded here (you can find some of their signatures on one of the bedroom walls) and shared many meals and stories in this house. The voices of Nickel Creek, Switchfoot, New Found Glory, Eve6, Shawn Mullins, and many, many others have echoed off these walls. The living room downstairs was home to a recording studio, where a piano still sits under the window and guitars hang from the walls.

This home also provides a glimpse into the future of automated homes. The front door lock is keyless, so you’ll never lose a key in the beach sand. A simple code pressed into the keypad will open the door into the dramatic entry, and when arriving at night, the system knows to turn on the entry lights, conserving energy. The central heating and air filtration system is Wi-fi based and can be controlled from any smart phone and the combo smoke and CO detector will alert the property manager should an alarm be triggered.

There is a granny flat that has a female resident located in the back. She travels quite a bit and is rarely home. This flat is completely separate form the house and you wouldn't even know she is there, because she probably isn't. Please ask should you have any concerns.

This house truly has it all… the only thing missing is you!

Year Purchased: 2003

About: This house is a very special place and is often recognized on historic Neptune Avenue as a favorite of passers-by on their evening walks. But it’s more about what’s inside the house that is both calming and inspiring, something I noticed almost fifteen years ago when I bought the little bungalow that had stood here for decades as a charming but neglected weekend home. The relaxing and energizing feel of the place settled in and grew after I built the new house, where I’ve lived for over a decade, where some great songs have been written, where some great artists have been recorded. And where some great memories have been made.

Why Leucadia, Encinitas, CA, USA:
Encinitas is one of the last truly laid-back beach towns with welcoming locals and an authentic feel. I love that you can walk everywhere from the house: great restaurants and coffee shops, an organic market, colorful bars, yoga studios, even the one-room post office are all within walking distance. And if you want to retreat to the oasis of your own private residence and enjoy a home-cooked meal overlooking the Pacific, this is the place.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This corner property is completely enclosed, so once you enter the gates you feel like you’ve found your own private oasis, where you can watch the moon sink into the Pacific and fall asleep to her lullaby. Built only 7 years ago, this completely custom home with ocean views from just about every room sits on a raised lot and faces the southeast, so the place is filled with light all day. Scenes from a best-selling book took place here and you’ll feel the magic of the place in the pages and walk through the rooms where moments happened that not only changed the author’s life but also the lives of thousands of other people who read the stories. This is a very special home to me as well as the people who have stayed here.
