Rancho Santa Fe

Experience the prestigious and ultra-luxurious community of Rancho Santa Fe. The 92067 ZIP code is home to some of the most stunning pieces of San Diego real estate, which rival those found in other luxury neighborhoods around the country like the Hamptons, Bel-Air, Calabasas, and Atherton. Privacy, prestige, and opulence are three of the many reasons people choose to buy a home in Rancho Santa Fe. Most homes are large and sprawling, with floor plans ranging from 4,000 sq. ft. to upwards of 12,000 sq. ft. Set behind private gates or inside one of Rancho Santa Fe’s many guard-gated communities, these estate homes also boast generous acreage with room for every luxury amenity you could desire – a pool, an outdoor kitchen, horse stables, acres of mature fruit trees, a koi pond, or even a helicopter pad! Since the 1930s, Rancho Santa Fe has been a retreat for the wealthy and famous – a reputation it still holds today. Owing to the influence of early celebrities like Bing Crosby, who loved horses and helped found the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, Rancho Santa Fe has deep roots as a horse lover’s paradise. Thanks to the commitment of the local governing organization and historical society, Rancho Santa Fe today is exclusive, idyllic, and peaceful – truly the best of Southern California living.

Nestled at the heart of the community is the sleepy, pastoral Village of Rancho Santa Fe. Conceived by land use consultant, L.G. Sinnard, in the 1920s, strolling through the Village feels like taking a step back in time. Spanish-style architecture harkens back to San Diego’s earliest days, though the Village today is filled with modern restaurants and amenities. The best peach pie in town can be found at Thyme in the Ranch, a community institution that is known for its extensive menu of cakes, pastries, quiche, sandwiches, and more. Open Tuesday through Saturday, this darling restaurant is a must-try if you’re passing through the Village. Around the corner you’ll also find the upscale Mille Fleurs Restaurant, an elegant bistro that serves a menu of French and German-inspired cuisine that is best paired with a glass of one of their exquisite wines.

Need to retreat from the world? You’ll find some of San Diego’s best spa services at two nearby hotels: the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe and the Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa. Since 1923, the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe has offered visitors timeless elegance and an unparalleled level of service. Their wellness retreat encompasses over 3,000 sq. ft. of serene spaces and private treatment rooms designed to help you emerge refreshed and rejuvenated. The newer Rancho Valencia is San Diego’s only Relais & Châteaux property, offering a Forbes 5-star rated spa experience alongside its luxury accommodations. Care for mind, body, and soul with the help of Rancho Valencia’s extraordinary health and wellness practitioners.
