Carlsbad, California, named after Karlsbad of the Czech Republic, is a vibrant tourist hotspot known for having near-perfect weather and some of the most amazing fresh springs on the globe. This heaven on Earth had humble beginnings that date back to the 1880s, but Carlsbad has grown into an extraordinary resort city with worldwide notoriety. You’ll find this “Village by the Sea” eighty-seven miles south of the glamour of L.A. and thirty-five miles north of laid-back Downtown San Diego. Carlsbad is roughly divided into four general areas. The large acreages of Chestnut Hills, and more affordable housing options are found in the North Quadrant which is located north of Palomar Road and east of El Camino Real. The oldest part of the city is found in the Northwest Quadrant and here you’ll find charming bungalows, elegant cottages and extravagant mansions atop beautiful hills overlooking the enchanting waters of the Pacific Ocean. There are beautiful, new master-planned communities in the Calavera Hills area. Many homes there boast alluring Spanish architecture. And in the Southeast Quadrant, there are also upscale master-planned communities, as well as numerous ranches, Alga Norte Community Park, and several lush golf courses.
