LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! A Rare opportunity to own a piece of paradise in this coveted Encinitas Highlands neighborhood just in time for the summer. DESIGN YOUR OWN OASIS AND BUILD or enjoy this charming 1950s bungalow! A perfect work-from-home property. The home includes 3 bedrooms and 1-1/2 baths and features a sandstone brick wood-burning fireplace in the living room, plus a large, updated (in 2023) kitchen with a new quartz countertop, gas cooktop and hood, flooring and lighting. The home displays mid-century style throughout, with knotty cedar tongue-and-groove paneling and built-in storage. The master bedroom has an adjacent half-bath and the front bedroom has two closets plus built-in cabinets and drawers. The property was recently painted inside and out and includes many upgrades. Screened from the street by a cluster of bamboo and situated on a sprawling 8,900 lot!! The grounds feature mature shade trees and fruit-bearing trees, a fern grotto, lush tropical plantings, flagstone walkways, a stone seating area, a chicken coop, and a built-in gardener’s potting shed, as well as a long driveway for off-street parking. At the rear of the property, the detached two-car garage has been converted into a unique workspace; a room that could be used as storage or an office with a three-quarter bath, an open workshop area and built-in storage, and a laundry area with a utility sink and washer & dryer hookups. A recently installed garage door offers easy load-in/out. And still, there is plenty of room to add a Pool, Spa or Guest House/ADU, as well! Just imagine the possibilities! The home is West of I-5 and is tucked away on a quiet street but just half a mile to vibrant PCH with all its fabulous Restaurants, Cafes, Shops and Nightlife! Also, just steps to the Coaster station, City Hall, Library, Viewpoint Park & world-renowned Beaches . Less than a mile to Moonlight Beach & just blocks away from the Internationally Famous surfing spot, Swami's! Cardiff By the Sea is calling! Although some understandably call it "Heaven by the Sea"! There's a reason Forbes Advisor Magazine included the area in its "Best Places to Travel in 2023" The ultimate place to experience coastal living at its finest! Don't miss your opportunity to join the few who get to call this area home!
