For the most part, the area can be divided into Old Encinitas, New Encinitas, Olivenhain, Leucadia, and Cardiff-by-the-Sea. Home buyers consider Olivenhain for the extra space, privacy, and a semi-rural feel, as well as several private equestrian-related facilities for horseback riding enthusiasts.
Those more interested in living near the water, should begin their real estate search somewhere around Old Encinitas, Leucadia, or Cardiff-by-the-Sea. Although the housing styles in each of these neighborhoods vary a bit, finding the perfect beachside or Encinitas oceanfront home should rarely be a problem for buyers willing to pay the inevitable waterfront premium.
The aptly named New Encinitas is a newer part of the city, and offers close proximity to golf courses, newly developed shopping centers, and a fabulous mix of newer construction Encinitas homes that feature large lot sizes, ample living space, and all the modern and updated interior finishes that many of today's home buyers seek when trying to find that perfect new place to call home.
Encinitas, California is a beautiful coastal city, known for its thriving surf culture and being home to some of the best beaches in all of San Diego County. In fact, National Geographic once named Encinitas one of the 20 best surf towns in the world, while Swami's beach, a favorite spot among local surfers, was the inspiration behind the Beach Boys hit "Surfin' USA" back in the mid-1960s.
In addition to its rich surf culture, Encinitas also has quite the collection of distinct nurseries and gardens, and is the home of the San Diego Botanic Garden—an area attraction that features roughly 4,000 kinds of plant species from all over the world and over 37 acres of plant exhibits that range from rare bamboo groves to subtropical fruit gardens. Furthermore, the city's largest industry is the growing of ornamental flowers, and to date, it's the world's leading grower of the Christmas flower, the poinsettia.
In some ways, a trip to the Encinitas community almost feels like a going back in time, as it's downtown and historic shopping district is now over 100 years old. The buildings and the general atmosphere capture the true essence of old California, while still offering an array of modern restaurants, sidewalk cafés, and unique retails shops that are filled with locally-crafted treasures, both new and old.
