Rancho Santa fe Estates
Rancho Santa Fe is one of America's most prestigious and affluent
communities. This distinction comes from the incomparable superior quality
of life experienced by the residents of "RSF".  Sequestered in the lush rolling
hills of zip codes 92067 and 92091, estates are spacious, private, and have all
the amenities of world class luxury resorts.  Rancho Santa Fe is the "crown
jewel" of San Diego real estate. Rancho Santa Fe is located four miles inland
from the Pacific Ocean in northern San Diego County and twenty miles north
of Downtown San Diego.  Rancho Santa Fe is bordered on the north by
Escondido Creek, on the south by the San Dieguito River, on the east by
Camino Del Norte, and on the west by El Camino Real.  It is conveniently
situated in the middle of 3 major freeways, Interstate 5 to the west, Interstate
15 to the east and Highway 56 to the south
Rancho Santa Fe's historic Village, called "The Covenant" (after the document
that established the community) is administered by the Rancho Santa Fe
Association
www.rsfassociation.org.   Rancho Santa Fe continues to
symbolize elegant rural living.  Whether you live in the Covenant or one of
Rancho Santa Fe's luxuriously planned communities, you share in the
gracious lifestyle envisioned by the original Rancho Santa Fe planners and
residents.

The Covenant is a 6,200-acre rural enclave carved out of the first Mexican
political land grant.  The Covenant is bordered on the north by Escondido
Creek, on the south by the San Dieguito River, on the east by Camino del
Norte, and on the west by El Camino Real.  In 1906 it was sold to the
Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway Company, which renamed it Rancho
Santa Fe and planted eucalyptus trees as a resource for railroad ties. When
the wood proved unusable, the railroad decided to develop a planned
community of country estates. Today, the fragrant Eucalyptus trees still stand
tall throughout Rancho Santa Fe.

The area was planned by one of the country’s first female architects, Lillian
Rice, who also designed the library, civic center, elementary school,
numerous private homes, and the only hotel within the Covenant, The Inn at
Rancho Santa Fe.  Her plan also included the village downtown area which is
centered around the intersection of Linea del Cielo/Paseo Delicias and La
Granada/Via de Santa Fe. Two large Spanish-style condominium complexes
are also located in the Covenant's central area.  Rancho Santa Fe is also
recognized by the State of California as a California Historic Landmark.


Rancho Santa Fe is the ultimate planned community where the average
residential lot size is in excess of two acres and sidewalks and streetlights are
banned from residential areas. Winding driveways lead to traditionally styled
Spanish, Mediterranean or Ranch style homes flanked by fragrant, citrus and
native foliage. Elaborate landscaping protects the privacy integral to the
exclusive way of life for residents. Some of the kings of industry and
Hollywood celebrities who own or owned estate homes within Rancho Santa
Fe’s gated communities are notables such as Bill Gates, American
entrepreneur, software executive, philanthropist and chairman of Microsoft,
Glen Bell Founder of the Taco Bell chain of restaurants, Gary Kremen
Founder of Match.com, Joan Kroc Philanthropist and widow of McDonald's
founder Ray Kroc, Phil Mickelson  professional golfer, John Moores owner of
the San Diego Padres, Bud Black -Manager of the San Diego Padres, Juice
Newton Singer, Pete Rozelle Former commissioner of the NFL, Joseph Coors
of the Coors brewery family, the Sultan of Brunei, Howard Hughes and Bing
Crosby.  

Forbes reported Rancho Santa Fe’s 92067 as the third most expensive zip
code in the United States, and most expensive in California.

The ranch is known for its horses--there are 45 miles of bridle paths
throughout the ranch available for use by Covenant residents and the
Rancho Santa Fe Riding and Saddle Club. Some of the finest horse trainers in
the country live here and the area was the site for the equestrian events
during the 1984 Olympics.  Polo is also a favorite pastime among Rancho
Santa Fe residents.  In close proximity to some of the best beaches in
Southern California, Rancho Santa Fe also boasts outstanding golf courses
and tennis courts.  Its golf courses include the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club, The
Bridges, The Crosby, Fairbanks Ranch Golf Club, Del Mar Country Club,
Morgan Run Resort & Club and Rancho Santa Fe Farms Golf Club.  The Farms
Golf Club, a private, member-owned equity club, in the ruggedly beautiful
terrain of Rancho Santa Fe, was conceived, created and built for golf
enthusiasts… No pools, no tennis, just golf.

The present-day luxury estate home development, "The Crosby Estates"
stands on the site of Bing Crosby’s former estate.  Bing Crosby is credited as
an "early settler" who helped finance the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Course at the
Club and hosted annual clambakes on the  golf course.  Douglas Fairbanks
and Mary Pickford also played important roles in the founding and
popularization of Rancho Santa Fe as a “celebrity” resort town. “Fairbanks
Ranch” with over 40 acres of park-like grounds and pristine amenities
including a lake with a clubhouse nestled on its shore, 5 tennis courts, 9-hole
putting green, a park featuring a barbecue / picnic area along with volleyball
and basketball court stands as a tribute to the movie star.

An MLS search for homes in 92067 and 92091 zip codes will bring up
additional planned communities surrounding the Covenant, each with it's
own distinctive qualities. Included with  Fairbanks Ranch and The Crosby are,
Hacienda Santa Fe, Rancho del Rio, Whispering Palms, The Groves, Rancho
del Lago, South Point Farms, Stonebridge, Diegueno Hills, Rancho Valencia,
Del Rayo, Rancho La Cima, Stratford, Montecito, Senterra, Horsemans Valley,
Morgan Run, The Summit, and Rancho Santa Fe Farms. In addition, there are
the newer communities such as The Bridges, Rancho Cielo, Rancho Santa Fe
Farms Estates,The Lakes and Santa Luz.

Popular with residents and visiters alike are some of the best restaurants in
southern california.  The restaurant at the “Inn at Rancho Santa Fe” just four
miles inland from the Pacific ocean, is its own hideaway with an intimate
atmosphere and magnificant Spanish architecture.  The Inn is well known for
its creative California cuisine and famous wine list.  “Mille Fleurs” located on
Paseos Delicias was called by The New York Times “the best restaurant in San
Diego”.  Mille Fleurs is known for its incredible cuisine and piano bar that
attracts all ages for late evening socialization.

For all of its wealth and famous residents the community is still tightly-knit
and family oriented with four schools located within the Rancho Santa Fe
School District:

•        R. Roger Rowe Rancho Santa Fe School - public
•        Diegueno Country School - private
•        Horizon Preparatory - private
•        The Nativity School - private

Today, with 4,800 residents and its historic Village, the Covenant,
administered by the Rancho Santa Fe Association (www.rsfassociation.org)
continues to symbolize elegant rural living.  Whether you live in the Covenant
or one of the luxurious neighboring communities, you share in the gracious
lifestyle envisioned by the original Rancho Santa Fe planners and residents.
