.71acre lot

Amongs remaining Olde Encinitas parcels, few offer such majestic and sweeping views as this exceptional .71-acre paradise.  Unlock your dream estate, with existing structural utility, and a huge, breathtaking, highly usable lot.  With ocean blue accents between old growth trees, and stunning backcountry views, the renowned Crest Corridor is like a Hawaiian countryside featuring North County lifestyle.

Come tour this beautiful single-level home at the “crest” of Crest Corridor, featuring a thoughtful floorplan with roomy living spaces, exposed beam ceilings, and warm white walls.  Here you will find natural surroundings blended through architecture that floods natural lighting through an array of glass doors and windows showcasing views from every room.  This property is fitted with a bonus suite above the garage, separate 1bd/1ba guest home, refreshing poolside courtyard, a stick-built shed, owned solar, and electric car charging.

Yard and Views
Great in photos, this huge, fully-fenced yard commands an in-person visit to fully appreciate its stunning beauty.  Located in the desirable pocket between Birmingham and Cardiff Drive, this home is sited where coastal topography crests to its peak, offering sweeping ocean views to the west, and stunning backcountry views to the east.  Breathtaking sunrises and golden sunsets color this old-timey street with sideways lighting filtered through Torrey Pines, Palms, and lush vegetation.

First time on market since the original 1965 build, this property checks every box for those looking to develop a spectacular residence.  While utility may be found in preserving some, or all, of the home’s existing structure, “forever-home” seekers and developers alike will appreciate the flat topography, perfect for a main home, ADU, additional guest house, swimming pool, sport courts, and other outbuildings (subject to City approval).

Crest Corridor is loosely defined as a circuit of streets (Crest, Wales, Via Tiempo, Lake), unofficially recognized by locals as having its own independent identity.  Its prestigious, yet casual character reflects a bastion of old California charm, where oversized parcels framed by lush mature landscaping and Torry Pines still line streets without sidewalks.  A few minutes from the coast, this coveted neighborhood is everything we love about the beach, without the tight quarters and parking pressure.

Living in Crest Corridor is like being submersed in the beauty and simplicity of a Hawaiian countryside, with all the comforts and conveniences of town life.  Surfers and beach lovers enjoy a strong connection to the sea, ritualistically driving to legendary surf breaks “down the hill”, just passed our many coastal shopping and dining landmarks.  Sufficiently far enough away to feel insulated, but close enough for easy convenience, you “go in” (east) to El Camino Real, where a quick left leads to everything mass-market, from Trader Joe’s to Target, and everything in between. 

Move here, and instantly plug into award-winning schools, Cardiff Sports Park, Encinitas Community Park, trails, world-class surf, great restaurants, farmers markets, shops, galleries, train station, freeway access, historic Hwy 101, Cardiff Towne Centre, Downtown Encinitas, and Cedros Design District and everything North County has to offer.  No HOA or Mello Roos.
