Welcome to Rancho Santa Fe
Rancho Santa Fe is one of the most exclusive, desired, and wealthy rural communities in the country. Located just 20 miles north of San Diego, this affluent community is known for it’s equestrian lifestyle, beautiful golf courses, world-class resorts and country clubs, great weather, convenient location, and large estates with acreage. In 1906, Santa Fe Railroad purchased this area to plant a eucalyptus tree plantation for use as railroad ties, but the wood proved too soft to hold railroad spikes. In 1922, the railroad formed the Santa Fe Land Improvement Company to develop this planned community of country estates within a beautiful forest of eucalyptus. Today, residents enjoy miles of horse and walking trails that run along the picturesque tree-lined roads amongst golf courses, gated communities, and equestrian properties. The historic village of Rancho Santa Fe offers all the amenities of a small village including fine dining, cafes, and boutique shopping. Rancho Santa Fe is the perfect location for those who place a great value on privacy and enjoy a down-to-earth country lifestyle combined with luxurious living.
