Calavera Hills is a unique community in Carlsbad that mixes the more modern features of homes built in the last 25 years, along with the warm feeling of an established community, with mature trees, parks and preserves. Calavera Hills is comprised of the four communities of Barrington, Capistrano, Nantucket and Sheffield. The 487 homes are part of the overall Calavera Hills Master Plan. New single- and multi-family homes are being built in the adjacent development of Calavera Hills II.
Nestled in the northeast corner of Carlsbad, Calavera Hills is famous for its namesake – rolling hills. Two of the more noted amenities you’ll find in Calavera Hills are the wonderful parks and famous nature preserve.

Calavera Hills Community Park is very well known throughout the entire city and boasts several multi-use fields, lighted tennis courts, picnic facilities and play areas for the younger children.

If schools are of importance to you, Calavera Hills has two elementary schools and its own middle school. In fact, the award winning Calavera Hills Elementary School is the newest addition to the Carlsbad Unified School District. AND opened in 2013, is Carlsbad’s second high school, known as Sage Creek high school – which will focus more on the Math and Science curriculums.
If you need groceries, restaurants, movie theaters, coffee shops and more, you’re just a few minutes drive to plenty of shopping along the Hwy 78 corridor.
If you prefer “outlet mall” shopping, the Carlsbad Outlet Mall is just a few miles away, and boasts over 110 stores and restaurants, and is a favorite shopping area for those North County residents looking for quality merchandise at a discount price.
The Carlsbad Flower Fields are next to the Outlet Mall, and are a favorite location for those who love vibrant colors and that arboretum feel. Grown and maintained every year by our local Armstrong Nursery, the U.S. Flower flag is one of the main attractions you’ll see at this local site.
