Rancho Santa Fe ranks high among the most exclusive areas in all of California. An ideal location for the equestrian-minded, it lies just minutes from the storied Del Mar Racetrack and Fairgrounds, in addition to the Del Mar Horsepark show and training facility. An important part of the landscape, its vast equestrian trail system boasts manicured paths meandering past exquisite multi-million-dollar properties, fragrant citrus groves, the renowned Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club, and miles of wild Coastal Sage Scrub.
Among the wealthiest communities in the nation, a 2012 CNN Money/OnBoard LLC, survey reported Rancho Santa Fe, at 96%, was rated # 1 in the U.S. Zip Code list of neighborhoods with the highest percentage of million-dollar homes. Its charming village center with shops, restaurants, banks, realtors, and cherished Lillian Rice architecture beckons visitors with its sumptuous beauty. The beloved post office serves as an informal social setting since home delivery doesn’t exist here, adding to the privacy many residents seek. The coveted Rancho Santa Fe school district ensures top notch education while also adding inestimable value to properties within its boundaries.
In 1989, “The Covenant” of Rancho Santa Fe became registered as California Historical Landmark #982 for its status as a historic planned community. It also received "Cultural Landmark" designation for its roads, water features, landscaping, and natural contours. Rancho Santa Fe's fascinating history, coupled with its legacy of illustrious residents past and present, add to the charisma, the vibrancy, and the uniqueness of this rare gem tucked away in North County.
