Spotlight on Olde or Old Carlsbad, CA

Share

old carlsbadThough we deal day in and day out with Carlsbad real estate, we also spend much time exploring the different neighborhoods and communities within this coastal city. Here, we explore the charms of Olde or Old Carlsbad, located within the 92008 zip code.

To begin with, is it Olde or Old Carlsbad, CA? It’s probably a matter of style or taste. Locals can’t decide either!

Old Carlsbad is coastal ground zero, where Carlsbad had its start in the late 1800’s. Named after the Bohemian town of Karlsbad (because of healing alkaline water similarities–and which is still available today!), Carlsbad started off as an agricultural community where avocados, citrus fruits and olive trees flourished. Today, Old Carlsbad is broadly defined by its 92008 zip code and the many homes that were built before Carlsbad’s incorporation in the 1950’s. Some of Carlsbad’s most expensive real estate sits on its beaches, while other prime properties sit on nearby hillsides with stunning views of the ocean.

Old Carlsbad has a distinct beachy ambience that is relaxed, casually dressed and where much of life is spent outdoors–year round. This San Diego climate chart below  may help explain.

Central to Old Carlsbad is Carlsbad Village. which ranges several blocks along Carlsbad Blvd and which includes Carlsbad Village Drive, Grand Ave, State Street, Roosevelt Street, and various other cross streets. Here you can troll along tree-lined streets as you pass boutiques, antique shops, numerous restaurants and specialty stores. And if you are out and about on either Wednesday (1-5) or Sunday (9-1), you might want to visit the downtown Carlsbad Farmer’s Market held along Roosevelt Avenue.

Other notable downtown attractions might include:

  • Carlsbad Village Art & Antique Mall
    Over 100 Dealers and Artists, 15,000 Square Feet
    2752 State Street
  • Village Faire Shopping Centre
    Over 30 specialty boutiques, fine shops, galleries, salons and restaurants, as well as the Carlsbad Children’s Museum.
    300 Carlsbad Village Drive
  • Ocean House
    A restaurant featuring California cuisine, located in a 19th century Victorian building. The Ocean House is attached to the Twin Inns of Carlsbad.
    300 Carlsbad Village Drive
  • The Twin Inns of Carlsbad
    A restored Victorian hotel.
    300 Carlsbad Village Drive.
  • Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort
    A peaceful, quaint resort one block from the beach.
    3075 Carlsbad Blvd
  • Historical Magee Park Museum
    Turn of the century style house, which depicts the life style of the early settlers of Carlsbad who had once owned the house. Includes beautiful rose garden.
    258 Beech Ave

And of course, there are Carlsbad’s world famous and beautiful beaches, which would include Tamarack Beach as well as neighboring:

  • Carlsbad State Beach
  • North Carlsbad beaches

(It might also be helpful to understand that while dogs are welcome in almost all parts of Carlsbad, they are not allowed on its beaches.)

Finally, we regularly receive requests for information about real estate and homes for sale in Old Carlsbad. Many are seeking Carlsbad beach homes, while most have simply fallen in love with its charm, beach location and easy-going lifestyle. Below are some current availabilities of homes for sale in Old Carlsbad–including homes and condos both east and west of I-5–and below that, schools that service Old Carlsbad neighborhoods.
