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.
