Rancho Santa Fe Homes For Sale

Rancho Santa Fe has a small town feel with a countryside lifestyle. This town’s name comes from the Spanish phrase for “holy faith.”  It is a census designated place that currently has a population of just over 3,000 residents. The town of Rancho Santa Fe has a median income of almost $190,000, making it one of the highest earning communities of its size. The community of Rancho Santa Fe covers 6.8 square miles.  

This area, previously called Rancho San Dieguito, was an 1841 land grant - one of the many Mexican land grants of the era. This land was used as a plantation until the expansion of the railroad lines in the early 1900s. In 1921, plans were put into place to develop a 6,200 acre section of Rancho San Dieguito into a master planned community that would be filled with country style estate homes. The following year, this new community was renamed with its present day designation of Rancho Santa Fe. The new town was completed in 1927 and included a village center as well as several residential areas.

Living in Rancho Santa Fe

Rancho Santa Fe is located about 7 miles inland, east of Solana Beach and Encinitas. Like most of the land in and around San Diego, Rancho Santa Fe has a Mediterranean climate, with warm summers and mild winters. However, the inland areas like Rancho Santa Fe tend to have more of a temperature variant than the coastal areas, meaning that the summers have higher highs and the winters have lower lows. Even still, Southern California’s weather is hard to beat, a fact that this area’s residents take full advantage of. There are plenty of outdoor recreational opportunities available to anyone living in Rancho Santa Fe. While Rancho Santa Fe is a predominantly residential community, it also includes a few blocks of shops and restaurants. The Rancho Santa Fe Library Guild oversees the Rancho Santa Fe library, a part of the San Diego County Library system. The residents of Rancho Santa Fe also have access to a local farmer’s market - the Rancho Santa Fe Farmers Market. While this is a relatively new farmers market and therefore on the small side, it is a great, convenient place to pick up locally made pastries, smoothies, hummus, and freshly squeezed juice. If you are looking to move to the San Diego area but will need a place to board your horses, you might want to take a second look at Rancho Santa Fe. The community includes the Sunset Horse Ranch, a clean and spacious ranch with a laid back, knowledgeable staff that always puts the care of the animals first. This ranch includes its own riding arenas, but it also has convenient access to some of the area’s trails, making it a great place to start your equestrian adventures. This neighborhood also includes an elementary school and middle school for the local children. The Rancho Santa Fe Elementary School District, the Solana Beach School District (for students preschool aged through 6th grade), and the San Dieguito Union High School District (for students in 7th through 12th grades) service the area. While there are plenty of private schools available in the area, it is interesting to note than many families in Rancho Santa Fe choose to send their children to public school. On average, the schools here spend almost $5000 more per student than the national average, ensuring that all of the students attending Rancho Santa Fe’s schools receive an exemplary education.
