La Costa Ridge
Dolcetto in La Costa Ridge

La Costa Ridge, as its name implies, sits at the top of a scenic hillside ridge in La Costa.

In fact,La Costa ridge sits on one of the highest points in Carlsbad and is also the only gated master planned community in Carlsbad. With Italian-inspired architecture,  La Costa Ridge is known for luxurious and large homes–and as a premier La Costa Village.

Many owners have improved their  homes here with substantial upgrades, both inside and out. As a result of builder’s original care in construction and owner’s quality improvements, homes here tend to sell at a premium–especially the large single story plans. There are 262 homes in La Costa Ridge, which sit adjacent to the 1000-acre La Costa Preserve.
