Cardiff by the SeaCardiff by the Sea homes are in high demand by buyers seeking a coastal residence in a hip community–and one that hopefully has an ocean view.

What makes Cardiff by the Sea such a hip and wonderful place to live has as much to do with being ocean-close (Cardiff State Beach) as it does with the beloved yoga studios and the Seaside Market (where one can order Cardiff Crack aka a seasoned tri-tip roast). Cardiff, as it is more commonly known, has a small town feel and a population just under 12,000.

Most Cardiff homes tend to be expensive, as is most real estate in Encinitas. Listed below are all homes for sale in Cardiff by the Sea, and below that, recent sales in this distinctive Encinitas community. If you have any questions about Cardiff or Encinitas real estate in general, feel free to call Roberta or Scott Murphy at either 760-942-9100 or 760-613-6190.

When light creates art, art evokes emotion. Phoenix House, unlike anything Cardiff by the Sea has ever seen, is an Architectural Record award winning sanctuary. Impeccably designed by Sebastian Mariscal, Phoenix House was the first of three of his creations to receive the prestigious Record House designation. Expansive ocean views and multiple outdoor living spaces, including the rooftop deck with an outdoor kitchen, make indoor/outdoor living as easy as the ocean breeze. Wall surfaces of carefully crafted board-formed concrete, the 20th century stone, combine with walnut and Buckingham slate floors throughout and walnut and mahogany windows, doors and cabinetry to form a serene environment of warm minimalism. Beams of light filter through multiple gaps and skylights to cast cool shadowed transitions between well thought out rooms. Depending on the time of day you’ll marvel at the sun or moonlight dancing from the outside in, setting many different tones and shades, creating spaces that evoke the feelings of an immersive art experience. These are just a few of the intricate details you’ll swoon over throughout this inverted floor plan. The living space overlooks Cardiff’s familiar but always beautiful Pacific Ocean while the master suite gazes into the peaceful yard and alluring pool area. In the midst of all of the incredible contemporary details and centered between the private walls is an interior garden, a true focal point of this masterpiece home. In the heart of Cardiff's Composer District, Brahms Road is the most undiscovered, tucked away street, parallel to Rossini Canyon. The exclusive location is, in a sense, secluded from the buzzing beach town yet is centered so perfectly within walking distance to shops, restaurants, entertainment and of course, world class surf and beaches.
