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.
