Colony homes in calavera hillsThe Colony at Calavera Hills has universal appeal to Carlsbad real estate buyers because  the shingled “cottages” here are predominantly single story detached homes with large yards.

Homes in the Colony are located just south of Calavera Hills Community Park and can be distinguished by their Scottish street names, such a Glasgow and Abderdeen Streets. Homes in this Calavera Hills neighborhood are standouts in Carlsbad real estate because there are so many single story homes with large yards in the Colony. But that is likely because these homes were among the originals in Calavera Hills and were built in 1982-1984 when Carlsbad land was cheaper and more plentiful. Home sizes in the Colony range from around 1200 to 2000 square feet ofliving area.

Which all makes homes for sale in the Colony a relative rarity.
