Cardiff By The Sea Real Estate

Cardiff-by-the-Sea, commonly referred to as Cardiff by residents, is a small community of beachfront and ocean view homes nestled between Encinitas and Solana Beach in North San Diego County. Cardiff was originally developed by Frank Cullen who named it after his wife’s hometown of Cardiff, Wales and gave many streets English names such as Manchester, Glasgow, and Westminster. For many years the town’s only industry was kelp seaweed processing. In 1986 the area was incorporated into the City of Encinitas and now has approximately 11,000 residents. It is just over 30 minutes to downtown San Diego on the I-5 Freeway.

You won’t find tract houses in Cardiff, and many residences try to take advantage of a view with a small lot so homes were built vertically rather than horizontally and are often crowded together. The priciest homes are often in the Composer District which is on the north end of town. “The Walking District” is west of I-5 is proud of its “walkability” although you don’t see sidewalks on many of the residential streets.
