Located on the rolling hills and flat lands of La Costa, with views of the ocean, golf course (the North Course at La Costa) and surrounding hillsides, La Costa Greens is one of the pre-eminent planned communities in Carlsbad.

Despite initial construction starting in 2005 and most of the villages sold out, buyers can still find new construction in one neighborhood that was started in recent years, Viridian. Most homes, however, are resales.

As a Carlsbad master planned community, La Costa Greens offers amenities that residents attracted to these types of neighborhoods expect. There is the La Costa Greens tennis center, several tot lots, and a wonderful private residents' facility, The Presidio with a large swimming pool, expansive club house, meeting space, and a fully-equipped exercise facility. La Costa Preserve, a 1000 acre open space, is located nearby, and there are abundant hiking trails in the community.

Some La Costa Greens homes on the hills have spectacular views of the distant ocean, golf course, or the community. Only one neighborhood is gated.

La Costa Greens consists of multiple villages, developed by different well-known area builders, resulting in a range of styles, floor plans (1 and 2-story), upgrades, and sizes: homes range from around 2700 SF and up to around 4900, 3 - 5 bedrooms, 2.5 - 4.5 baths. There is one small community of detached 3-story townhomes (Sol Terra) and one condo community (Avellino) of 2 and 3-story homes.



Search for Carlsbad Homes for SaleWhat Schools do the La Costa Greens Children Attend?

The issue of schools is complex, as children living in La Costa Greens may attend one of two school districts, the San Marcos Unified School District and the Carlsbad Unified School District, depending on where they live.

School boundaries are best clarified with the individual school districts as they may be subject to change, but in general those living east of the golf course are in the San Marcos Schools and those to the west attend Carlsbad Schools.

To check on the schools, here is a link to the school locator application for the Carlsbad Unified School District.
