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.

Park Place Bluff Townhome like no other! This Cardiff gem has been remodeled almost from top to bottom! New woodlike flooring and neutral paint; brand new kitchen with stainless microwave, dishwasher, range/oven; sparkling quartz counters; brand new light grey cabinets, and gorgeous tile backsplash! Dual pane windows, new furnace and water heater, redone back yard with artificial lawn and raised succulent garden, completely rebuilt waterproofed deck so you can sit out and enjoy your yard, even on a rare drizzly evening. Completely replumbed with copper pipes. This unit is nestled in the back, away from the street, adjacent to a lush honeysuckle covered hillside. The PPB neighborhood is ideally located, only 2.5m to the beach, a 5’ drive to freeway, Trader Joe’s, Sprouts, Scripps Hospital, and renown Cardiff and SDUHSD schools, one of the best districts in the county! It is also part of a larger master community, Park Place, that offers incredible amenities - a resort like pool, tot pool, sand volleyball court, baseball diamond, and acres of dog park, picnic areas and trails. It doesn’t get any better than this! The owners installed a retaining wall and vinyl fencing along the back of the yard, adjacent to the slope. The deck off of the primary bedroom was completely rebuilt with waterproof decking, and a drywalled ceiling and recessed lighting down below. They also installed a pocket door between the laundry room and kitchen to block sound! Stairs were widened and finished with custom wrought iron spindles. Contact me for a comprehensive list of the many improvements they've made. Park Place Bluffs is a unique in that the ownership is as a single family home, but $360/month HOA dues cover exterior maintenance, sewer, trash, water, just like a condo. Park Place Bluffs is part of the master community of Park Place, with an additional $165/quarter, or $55/mo. This gives access to the amazing amenities pictured in the photos - a 23 acre dog-friendly park with trails, picnic areas, sand volleyball court, baseball field, pool, and tot pool.
