encinitas real estate searchEncinitas in North County Coastal San Diego is comprised of several communities rich in San Diego history. Encinitas is comprised of Cardiff by the Sea, Leucadia, Olivenhain, New Encinitas and Old Encinitas and was incorporated in 1986. Officially founded by Jabez Pitcher in 1881 when he filed a claim for the land which is now Encinitas. In 1870 Leucadia was founded by a group of English spiritualists and the name Leucadia is from the name of a Greek Island and means "Isle of Paradise" or "Place of Shelter." Cardiff got its start in 1875 with the McKinnon family homestead and was later named Cardiff by the Sea. Olivenhain" means olive grove in German. Encinitas has some of the nicest coast lines in all of California. The beaches run up against steep cliffs in many areas and are filled with local wildlife and sea life. A favorite beach of ours is Moonlight Beach off of Encinitas Boulevard. 

Encinitas is famous for the poinsettia flower "the beautiful red flower at Christmas" which was developed by the Ecke family and became part of Christmas in 1923. A drive through many parts of Encinitas will take you through fields of flowers and greenhouses as well as many fruit and vegetable corner stands. Encinitas as well as its beautiful unique communities within its borders has kept much of the old San Diego charm. Encinitas has two lagoons, one to the north called Batiquitos Lagoon and one to the south called San Elijo Lagoon.

Encinitas is about a 20 minute drive down Route 5 to Downtown San Diego. Traffic unfortunately on Route 5 during rush hours and the race season at the Del Mar Racetrack and the Del Mar Fair can really bind up going in and out of the Encinitas exits. Sometimes Highway 101 is a better choice and much more scenic or you can take the Coaster Train to the city and back. Real estate prices in Encinitas as well as many areas of North County Coastal San Diego can be expensive but the location is great and many residents believe worth the extra money. The rule of thumb is the closer to the beach the higher the price for the home.

Early History of EncinitasThe original settlers of the area we now call Encinitas were 3 groups of Indians called the Diegueno Indians, La Jolla Indians, and the San Dieguito Indians. As the missionaries pushed north in efforts to spread Christianity some of the Indians were converted to Christians by the missionaries. The name Encinitas is derived from "Encina Canada" or "Hills of Live oaks" in Spanish. It was named by Gaspar de Portola the Governor of Baja California in 1669 as he traveled through the area in search of where to build Missions.
