Carlsbad home buyers looking for new construction with great views in a subdivision may find just what they are seeking in Calavera Hills, in the northeast corner of Carlsbad and just a few miles from Carlsbad Village.
Montara is one of the neighborhoods within Calavera Hills, and at one of the highest points in the area offers dramatic views of the countryside, hills, and even the ocean, depending on the home’s location. There is a tot lot within the neighborhood as well as a community pool for residents.
Fewer than 200 homes on a handful of streets (several of them are cul-de-sacs) comprise this attractive hillside community just off Tamarack Avenue, and a short distance from the Calavera Hills Elementary School (older children will also attend the Carlsbad Unified Schools).
While Montara is purely residential, you are near all the essential shopping and a selection of restaurants (in neighboring Oceanside and Carlsbad Village), and perhaps 20 minutes at best to the Carlsbad beaches.
