DOWNTIME

Characterized by wooded lots and equestrian estates, Rancho Santa Fe is home to the world-famous San Diego Polo Club and the historic Rancho Santa Fe Country Club.


Del Mar’s upscale country cousin, Rancho Santa Fe, is located just across the freeway from the town of Del Mar, about four miles from the coast and a 30 minute drive from downtown San Diego. Known locally as ‘The Ranch’ or ‘Rancho,’ this world-class unincorporated community is characterized by wooded lots and equestrian estates.

About 3,000 people reside in Rancho Santa Fe, which is noted for its internationally renown San Diego Polo Club as well as its historic Rancho Santa Fe Country Club. Built by noted entertainer Bing Crosby, the club offers world-class golfing on its 6,940 yard par 72 course. Add in the town’s excellent restaurants, superb shops, and the luxurious Inn at Rancho Santa Fe, and it’s easy to see why people love this area so much.

Rancho Santa Fe is noted for its eucalyptus trees, which were planted by the Santa Fe Railway during the early 20th Century in hopes of providing a source of wood for railroad ties. The 3,000-acre experiment failed, but forever changed the character of the area, turning the typical sage scrub environment into a heavily wooded area. Today the picturesque town offers a beguiling, private, rural lifestyle, characterized by gently rolling hills, private walking trails, low density living, and grand residences, where the average lot size is more than two acres. 

Combined with its close proximity to the ocean and easy access to world-class medical facilities, the schools in Rancho Santa Fe are consistently rated some of the best in California, making it a favorite choice for families.
