Santaluz Real Estate
More About Santaluz…
Situated on the rolling hillside just east of Rancho Santa Fe is the award-winning, master-planned community of Santaluz. This fabulous golf course community began construction in the early 2000’s, offering everything from smaller Spanish Casitas overlooking the golf course to huge custom home sites with panoramic views out to the Pacific Ocean. Santaluz was designed to be different than other private communities in the area. Once beyond the gated entrances, visitors will immediately be struck by the 1,000 acres of open space, featuring drought-resistant native plants maintained with reclaimed water. Over 25 miles of trails throughout the development invite nature lovers and exercise enthusiasts to explore a side of California they otherwise must drive hours east to enjoy. Santaluz is a very special community that is friendly, warm, inviting and brings together all walks of life, from young families to empty-nesters, entrepreneurs to senior executives. The hub of Santaluz is an 11-acre Village Green, which includes the membership-owned Hacienda and Santaluz Clubhouse and Spa, both of which serve as the social heart of the community. Club members enjoy all of the amenities of a world-class resort without having to travel beyond the neighborhood. Santaluz also is home to a private, 250 acre, 18 hole golf course designed by Rees Jones. This links style course was designed to complement, rather than compete, with the land’s natural assets. The result is a truly beautiful championship course that blends in with the surrounding environment, providing panoramic vista views all the way to the Pacific Ocean.
Because Santaluz is located approximately 7 miles inland from the coastline, residents get a nearly perfect microclimate year round. Live too close to the coast in San Diego and you’ll experience the marine layer of gray, overcast skies that typically burns off at some point in the morning, but can sometimes hang around all day. Live too far inland in San Diego and you’ll experience a little more heat than most are comfortable with and not nearly enough of nature’s air conditioning that is provided by the Pacific Ocean. Santaluz is perfectly located just far enough from the coast that you can wake up to sunny mornings with no gray, yet is just close enough to the coast that you’ll feel the cool, refreshing breezes that complement the never ending sun found year round in San Diego.
Homes in Santaluz come in a variety of styles and sizes. Located near the golf course and Village Green are smaller Spanish Casitas 2,100 to 2,600 square feet), Sentinels (2,300 to 2,900 square feet), Haciendas Sur (3,200 to 3,800+ square feet), semi-custom Posadas (4,800 to 5,500 square feet) and fully custom home sites with houses ranging from 4,000 square feet to over 15,000 square feet. On the west side of Camino Del Sur are several production home communities with homes typically ranging between 3,000 and 4,800 square feet. These communities west of Camino Del Sur include Davidson, Belsera, Garden Homes and Spanish Bungalows. Homes in Santaluz are reminiscent of a Tuscany farmhouse, a Santa Barbara style resort, Spanish style casitas and bungalows and more. Regardless of the style, size, or location, the choice is yours to make in Santaluz.
