Rancho Santa Fe has a rich history and was established in 1928 as a country residential community with an emphasis on agriculture and preserving the rural landscapes.
While the area is commonly referred to as the Covenant, the term refers to an agreement among property owners to preserve and maintain the character of the community and its landscape, and to uphold the quality of future architecture. The agreement came to be known simply as “The Covenant” and now refers not only to the principal governing document, but also to the community itself in the 92067 zip code.
Today, the Covenant of Rancho Santa Fe encompasses roughly 10 square miles or 6,730 acres and is home to elite, luxury real estate. Near the center of the Covenant is the Village of Rancho Santa Fe, with shops, restaurants, other commercial businesses, and the historic Rancho Santa Fe Inn.
Most of the Covenant is beautiful rolling topography with spacious low-density, large-lot residential developments where the average lot size is more than two acres. Looping through the pristine countryside and alongside the golf course, a private equestrian and hiking trail network runs throughout the community. The exclusive, secure, rural character of the community, combined with its proximity to the ocean, are what set the Covenant apart as being one of the country’s most highly desirable places to live.
