Oceanfront Homes for Sale in Encinitas – The Neptune Avenue Area in Leucadia

Oceanfront Homes for Sale in Encinitas – The Neptune Avenue Area in Leucadia

 

Oceanfront homes for sale in Encinitas - Encinitas oceanfont homes for saleThe Neptune Avenue area of Encinitas (in Leucadia) is the place to be for an oceanfront home. Neptune Avenue, about 2 miles long, extends from about 2 blocks north of Encinitas’ Moonlight Beach to Grandview Beach, adjacent to the gated Seabluff community.

 

Fabulous ocean views can be yours from high atop the bluff along this pricey stretch of real estate.

 

The homes can be deceptive from Neptune itself, appearing much more modest that they really are, and you often cannot even see the magnificent views these homes offer.

 

Indeed, you can’t even tell the ocean is there in many places, as you will see in the Neptune Avenue video below.

 

These Encinitas oceanfront homes range in price (currently) from about $2 million to $5.349 million, and with 984 SF to 4530 SF ($1467/SF), although some homes have sold for more in the recent past. Home styles are rather eclectic – beach cottages, traditional, contemporary and style that defy description.

 

Beacon's Beach along Neptune Avenue in Leucadia (Encinitas) CAEncinitas homes on the opposite side of the road will, in some cases, offer views and tend to be priced more modestly than direct ocean frontage.

 

At of this writing there are 9 oceanfront homes for sale in Encinitas along Neptune, with 3 others that are condos or twin-homes (priced from $1.49 M to $1.875 M).

 

Homes sales on Neptune for detached single family homes have averaged $2.339 million in the last year, with $3.55 million on average for the ocean front homes.

 

A number of the Encinitas oceanfront homes offer private stairs to the beach, or may be a short distance to the public beach access points at Stonesteps, Beacon’s or Grandview beaches. You will find sea walls and other retaining systems at some homes but not all, and it is very difficult to get approval to construct new walls; my understanding is you cannot gain approval to install stairs if they don’t already exist, and some homeowners have lost the use of their stairs due to erosion issues.

 

There are a good number of rentals in the area, given the views and the beaches, and many homes are vacation homes for their owners.

 

The Leucadia area offers shopping, restaurants, galleries, surf shops and other services you typically find in a small beach community. You can take a tour of the Leucadia Lifestyle below.

I love driving down Neptune and dreaming. Also, I often wonder, how huge would a Tsunami have to be to hit those properties up there.

Well, it might not hit 'em, but it sure would cause a problem with the bluff.

Jeff, an ocean front home would be nice most days. The rhythm of the waves, horizon view, maybe a warm sandy beach to walk on before jumping in....nice life. On the other hand, we've seen enough natural disasters in the last few years to give me pause to wonder if mayber one can live a bit too close to the mighty ocean.

William - it's a great area, as long as you are OK with being high on the bluff and having a walk down the hill. Quite frankly, not having stairs or staying up at the house to enjoy the views works just fine for me (been there, done that). I am working with 2 buyers right now looking at oceanfront property.

Maria - well we don't get the hurricanes so no issue there. The storms can cause some erosion so that is something to watch.
