Terra Mar HomesTerra Mar homes in Carlsbad, especially those on Shore Drive and Tierra Del Oro Drive, enjoy privately gated community access to the Carlsbad Beach.

Terra Mar was named for the Terramar Reef that sits about a quarter mile off shore and which helps protect the sandy shore. Terra Mar is a very desirable Carlsbad beach neighborhood with just five streets including Carlsbad Boulevard: Tierra Del Oro, Shore Drive, Los Robles Drive and El Arbol.

Most of the homes in Terra Mar were originally built in the 1960’s, but many have been substantially remodeled in the years since with a fair number having ocean views. Homes here don’t come onto the market very often, but we watch the area closely and when one does hit the MLS, we will present it here almost immediately. Below are recent sales of homes in Terramar in the past year. If you have any questions about Carlsbad beach homes or other Carlsbad real estate, call Roberta or Scott Murphy at either 760-942-9100 or 760-613-6190 or email
