Rancho Santa Fe Covenant

The Covenant in Rancho Santa Fe has a long history, going back to the days when the Santa Fe Railroad subdivided the land once owned by the Juan Osuna family.

In order to protect the land now known as the Rancho Santa Fe “Covenant,” Santa Fe railroad subdivided the land and created a set of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions that governed land usage–and are substantially still in effect today.

The Rancho Santa Fe Covenant was  formally established in 1928 as a “country residential community” that focused on agriculture and preservation of unique landscapes in Rancho Santa Fe–all within a very defined border that today covers around 10 square miles and is home to around 3400 residents. Homeowners currently pay .16 per $100 of property value for being in the Covenant, in addition to property taxes which run around 1.025% of what one has paid for a home, and which can rise by very small amounts each year. The Covenant fee covers upkeep for 20 miles of horse and hiking trails, as well as local sports fields.

Listed below are listed homes for sale in the Rancho Santa Fe Covenant. Below that are recent sales of homes in the Covenant.

Upon entering this one-of-a-kind Wallace Cunningham masterpiece via exotic South African Afrormosia gates, you are immediately transported to another world—a world where site-specific design has taken into consideration the orientation of the sun, the moon and the stars, in concert with earth, air, fire and water. The seamless integration of indoor and outdoor environments is accomplished via walls of disappearing glass. This rare ambience is further enhanced with fireplaces that exist in both environments and pools of water that frame living spaces to create islands. A predominantly single-level floorplan is comforted year-round by heated South African slate flooring that complements 4 ensuite bedrooms, including a private 4-room master suite. Equally impressive living areas, including a piano lounge, living and dining rooms, a great room and a chef's dream kitchen, all coexist with free-flowing ease. A dedicated media room provides entertainment for residents of all ages, and a separate 1-bedroom casita ensures that guests are pampered. The outdoors presents a pool, spa and uniquely planted upper and lower micro-landscaped gardens, each connected via easily accessible paths. Recently connected to the Rancho Santa Fe underground fiber-optics for optimal internet connection..
