South Rancho Santa Fe is a country estate community offering a magnificent rural environment unlike anything found in California. 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. With strict architectural guidelines and with the average lot size in excess of two acres, the area is distinguished by its wide open spaces, lush landscaping, tree-lined winding trails, quaint country atmosphere and magnificent estates.
The area's master plan, developed during the 1920's, called for the integration of structure and environment. Graceful eucalyptus and acacia-lined streets emanate from the charming central village where residents enjoy superb shops, fine restaurants and cafes and services that make living here a true delight. Exceptional schools, superior golf courses and breathtaking homes complete this idyllic area.
