A Home Shopper’s Ride Down PCH


 A Home Shopper’s Drive Down PCH



Every market is local. And, there is no better example of this than San Diego County and, finding your dream location can be a little overwhelming Last weekend I met Karen and Chris, who are relocating from Boston, for a tour of beach homes. Theirmost important consideration was view; if they were going to make the investment in an ocean close home, they wanted to have the daily experience of sitting on a deck and taking it all in.

1. An immaculate 2,300 square foot town home in Cardiff with Ocean and Lagoon views from the deck and the kitchen. $1,299,000

2. A newer, 4,616 square foot home the in Gallery Community of Encinitas with expansive ocean views. $2,498,000

3. A stunning beach home in Leucadia’s unique Sheridan Estates Community. A cup de sac, ocean view, an easy walk to the beach, on half an acre $1,795,000



What’s Happening In The Neighborhood – Lofty Coffee


No client goes home shopping with me empty handed.

A tour can’t even think about beginning without a stop at the absolute best coffee shop in Encinitas. Below the Lofts at Moonlight Beach on the Pacific Coast Highway is Lofty Coffee. LoftyCoffee picI tried their Almond Milk Salted Caramel Latte a year ago and I still can’t stop thinking about it. Watching them create their famous Turkish Lattes and cold brew coffee is second to the blissful attitude of their baristas who obviously take great pride and love what they do. They also serve a delicious organic breakfast in a thoughtfully designed relaxed space.

Where is your go-to place for coffee in your neighborhood and what is the best item on their menu (in your opinion :)?
