Carlsbad Expensive Homes: Beaches and La Costa Villages priced at and above #1 million.
Real estate in San Diego has become expensive–but I decided to check out the most Carlsbad expensive homes because the terrain is so varied. To the west are expansive sandy beaches and inland are golf courses, hillside estates and condos, and the newer and very lovely La Costa Villages.
In checking out the current market, we see there are 87 homes in Carlsbad priced at or above $1 million. Additionally there are 35 pending sales in same price range and in the past 12 months, 92 homes at or above $1 million have sold.
The most expensive homes in Carlsbad?
The three most expensive listings sold here in the past year have been oceanfront homes in the quiet little subdivision of Terramar. Here, 5099 Shore Drive sold (after only 13 days on the market) for $6,500,000–or $1271.00 per square foot. Runner up was 5001 Tierra Del Oro, which sold late last year for $5,950,000 or $1239 per square foot. Finally, an older and smaller home at 5201 Shore Drive sold last summer for $3,775,000, or a whopping $1808.00 per square foot.
Other seven-figure sales occurred in Aviara, La Costa Oaks, La Costa Valley, La Costa Ridge, Bressi Ranch and Olde Carlsbad.
