Rancho Santa Fe Homes

What makes Rancho Santa Fe homes so special and unique? There are some of the more obvious points, such as the lot size, the landscaping, rolling hills, the rules of the Covenant. But perhaps there's more. Rancho Santa Fe homes have a special feeling, one that fits the lifestyle of the residents of this quaint tucked away area in San Diego County. Four miles east of the Pacific Ocean and 25 minutes north of the city of San Diego, the Covenant of Rancho Santa Fe and its surrounding communities maintain a quaint country atmosphere, yet offer some of the most extraordinary residences in the United States.

Rancho Santa Fe is a country community offering a magnificent rural environment unlike anything found in California! When someone living in Texas says they want a French chateau, that style is really not appropriate for that climate for so many reasons. The same may be said for storm cellars in Rancho Santa Fe (not including wine cellars)

The houses in Rancho Santa Fe range from brand new sprawling estates to one of a kind craftsman classic homes from the 1920's. The increase in “million-dollar” homes is a combination of the caliber of homes built in the last decade and the rising value of existing homes.

Rancho Santa Fe is not a typical modern suburb. It is a collection of custom homes and extensive grounds which reflect slow growth over many decades. Houses range from brand new sprawling estates to one of a kind craftsman classic homes from the 1920's. What a long way the area has come in 80 years! The area now has about 4,800 residents, and has a distinct style with its own architectural personality. Many of the estates feature:

  • Horse facilities - many residents in the area enjoy riding and keeping horses
  • Fenced grounds - most of the estates are fenced off, with gates at the entrance.
  • Lush landscaping - Landscaping is pretty mature on most properties, even if the structures are new or rebuilt. Many trees in the area were planted 80 years ago.
  • Private golf on the grounds - Since many properties sit on several acres of land, there is even room for a putting green or two.
  • Lots of privacy and seclusion - because of the mature trees and the winding roads in the area, one has the feeling of being in the country.

The Village - The influence of architect Lillian Rice can still be seen throughout the village today on main streets such as Paseo Delicas and La Flecha. Her philosophy in architecture was to create unity between buildings and their surrounding in a simplistic blend of picturesque romantic charm in the mission Spanish style. Born in 1888 Lillian Rice worked from 1920 to 1930 designing, supervising, and constructing the village, as well as some housing throughout the Ranch.

The Covenant - The Covenant covers a wider area than the village itself, and protects the Ranch through the articles of the written covenant which places many restrictions and requirements on development to retain the original flavor and charm designed by Lillian Rice.

Fairbanks Ranch - A series of gated communities - Fairbanks Ranch was named for Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. Fairbanks Ranch is one of San Diego County's most exclusive, private residential communities. The houses in Fairbanks Ranch are architectural showcases ranging from 2,500 to 20,000 square feet. Privacy and safety are assured by 24-hour gate-guarded access and security patrol.

New developments to the east - These include the exclusive developments the Bridges and Bing Crosby Estates. Property in the Bridges runs from about $3 to $10 million, plus the club and homeowners fees. Lots in the Estate area, for example, provide sufficient area to accommodate even large estates and expansive grounds, as much as two acres. Sites within the Grove area are carved out of orange groves, with the surround trees maintained by the homeowners' association.

Other Neighborhood developments in the area now include Rancho Del Rio, San Diegueno Hills, Santa Fe Vista, Rancho Del Lago, Rancho LaCima, Del Rayo Estates, Del Rayo Downs, South Point Farms, Hacienda Santa Fe, Santa Fe Valley, Fairbanks Polo Club, Morgan Run, Spyglass Hill, Santa Fe Sur, Rancho Valencia, The Summit, and the Del Mar Country Club.
