Sandalwood is a neighborhood in Encinitas, California which is considered to be one of the city’s most sought after luxury gated communities.
The Sandalwood subdivision was built between 1999 and 2000 and has 86 estates. Homes here offer living space that ranges from 2,830 to 4,452 square feet and three to five bedrooms. Some of the estates feature views of the ocean, picture windows, and high ceilings. Most are situated on large oversized lots. The Home Owners Association dues are low in this area. This community is located north of Encinitas Boulevard and east of the 5 Freeway.
This neighborhood is served by the Encinitas Unified School District and the San Dieguito Union High School District with highly ranked facilities like Park Dale Lane Elementary School, Oak Crest Middle School, and La Costa Canyon High School. There are several private faculties such as The Rhoades School, Lighthouse Christian School, and Encinitas Country Day School. And nearby colleges include MiraCosta College and the California Institute for Human Science.
Sandalwood is just minutes from Moonlight Beach which is one of the more popular beaches in the city. Many visitors come here for swimming, surfing, beach volleyball, bon fires, and surf fishing. This state beach is located a little past where B Street goes across Highway 101. Residents are also close to the historic downtown area of Encinitas which offers shops, restaurants, and sidewalk cafes. At one time this corridor was Highway 101 and connected Los Angeles and San Diego.
For the golf enthusiast the Encinitas Ranch Golf Course is considered to be one of San Diego County’s top courses. Because it is located on the bluffs, golfers can see the ocean from most places on the course. The clubhouse has 6,000 square feet of space for recreation as well as a cafe and full bar. There is an adjoining patio overlooking the ocean and facilities for special events.
