Rancho Santa Fe is home to large, sprawling country estates and was declared the wealthiest community in the nation in the 2000 census. This pleasant oasis covers approximately 6,200 acres with approximately 1,500 households just four to six miles inland from the Pacific Ocean. Beautiful residences on lots averaging two acres or more are set back from the picturesque roadways which wind around the town. Rancho Santa Fe is governed by the Rancho Santa Fe Association which also oversees the RSF golf club, a 6800 yard, par 72, 18 hole course, and RSF tennis facility. Rancho Santa Fe also enjoys a riding club, garden club, community center, art guild, library guild, book club, and 50 miles of horse trails which weave throughout the rolling hills of this community.
The town centerpiece is “The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe”, designed by Lilian Rice, and situated on a grassy knoll at the western end of the main street. The focal point of activity is the central village, where businesses and shops dot the few blocks of commercially-zoned property. The Village serves as a meeting place where one gathers for morning coffee, or strolls down the street to greet neighbors and friends, and to enjoy the ambiance of the town itself.
In 1989, Rancho Santa Fe was registered as California Historical Landmark #982 for its status as a historic planned community. It also received “Cultural Landmark Degniation” which is an amendment to California State Landmark for its roads, water features, landscaping, natural contours.
