Leucadia Homes for Sale
Founded in 1870 by English spiritualists who named their settlement after a Greek Isle, Leucadia has retained its charm and tranquil quality amid the bustle of other oceanfront towns. The beach is still the biggest draw to the community. The area is a popular surf destination and the Leucadia Surf School offers lessons for those just learning the sport.
The schools are all in the Encinitas districts, as is city government, and public services. There is plenty to enjoy in Leucadia and even as part of greater Encinitas, it retains its own unique identity and quiet charm. Small bungalows and beach houses are still the predominant architecture and access to the beach is open to the public. For tourists, there are bed & breakfast inns where visitors can enjoy a stay in San Diego, a walk along the beach, surfing, great local restaurants, and Southern California charm without the greater expense of the more expensive beach neighborhoods.
