Lake San MarcosLake San Marcos may be one of the best secrets in San Diego real estate: It has a lake, a golf course and many homes have their own docks or golf course frontage.

And as for Lake San Marcos real estate, many buyers are amazed at the number of single story homes available–a relative rarity in coastal North County real estate.

And though not officially a part of San Marcos, Lake San Marcos is an independent and unincorporated community surrounded by the City of San Marcos on all sides–and one that is dependent upon their neighbor for public schools, fire department and San Marcos Sheriff’s services.

Lake San Marcos is very close to prime shopping, restaurants and a large movie theater in one direction–and La Costa Villages in the other. Some might say the location is perfect!

Listed below are Lake San Marcos homes currently listed for sale–with newest listings always showing first. If you have any questions about Lake San Marcos or San Marcos real estate in general, feel free to call Roberta or Scott Murphy at either 760-942-9100 or 760-613-6190.
