Rancho Santa Fe, Luxury In The Covenant

The beautifully planned state historic landmark called Rancho Santa Fe was first commissioned in the early 1920’s when the Santa Fe Land Co. enlisted a highly sought after designer to create the commercial district and many of the first homes. Rancho Santa Fe is perfectly nestled in between Del Mar and Solana Beach which gives a convenience of a close knit luxury community and a close proximity to that of the coastal communities as well.

Rancho Santa Fe has much to offer its residents from 52 miles of unique trails, private club houses, world renowned golf courses, luxury boutiques and award winning public schools in the San Dieguito School District. The Covenant is located in the heart of Rancho Santa Fe and was the original planned community which includes the RSF Inn, library, school, community center and garden club. RSF is perfectly maintained by having an art jury to govern and approve all aesthetics and architecture.

The “Ranch” is notably one of Southern California’s top most expensive zip codes for real estate transactions.  Yet this area is where your home will retain the most value because most Rancho Santa Fe home owners typically move here and never leave. Home values have continued to go up despite the fact that they have fallen in many, many others. Many homeowners associations exist within the Rancho Santa Fe zip code, but the oldest and largest is the Rancho Santa Fe Protective Covenant, governed by the Rancho Santa Fe Association.

These extravagant homes cradled in the Covenant of Rancho Santa Fe are perfect for a family with young children due to the award winning elementary and middle schools centrally located. R. Roger Rowe Elementary school has a 5 star rating from local board members and serves k-6th grade. The R. Roger Rowe Middle school additionally has a 5 star rating from local board members and their students have won multiple academic awards at county and state levels.
