Rancho Santa Fe – the most luxury homes in California

San Diego Polo Club, Heaven's Gate, camouflaged bridges, Doug Manchester, Whispering Palms, John Moores,

  • San Diego Polo Club site developed by Heaven's Gate

  • Exclusiveness breeds itself, so it’s little wonder that when the San Diego Polo Club in Rancho Santa Fe needed a Web page designed, they turned to Higher Source, at the time the most exclusive Web design club in town. Before workers at Higher Source — the Web-design squad of team Heaven’s Gate — packed their bags, they found time to complete the Polo Club’s site (www.sandiegopolo.com), which greets you with the creepy exclamation, “The ultimate thrill ride!”

San Diego Polo Club site. The author goes to great lengths to assure us polo is not a boring sport.
  • Many mansions

  • Cathy McCall, a top-selling real estate agent at Coldwell Banker, offers to take me on a tour of some dream homes in Rancho Santa Fe, a community that, last year (aside from Beverly Hills), boasted the highest number of luxury home sales in California. It's an exclusive neighborhood, home to Joan Kroc and Jenny Craig, where “entry level’’ homes sell for $1 to $1.2 million and golf club memberships cost between $25,000 and $110,000.

  • Are there camouflaged bridges off the Del Dios Highway?

  • While we were driving on Del Dios Highway, my eight-year-old son could barely maintain himself as he noticed some "bridges" barely visible (to me, anyway, as I tried to concentrate on that lovely yet deceptively treacherous roadway) camouflaged in the hills. I dared to take my eyes off the winding road for a moment to squint into the chaparral, and I did notice bridge-like structures. They appear to be made of wood and resemble small trestles.

  • Head for the rambling byways of Rancho Santa Fe.

  • Three million eucalyptus seedlings were planted on the scrub land of today's Rancho Santa Fe a century ago to provide wood for railroad ties, a project quickly abandoned when eucalyptus wood was proved useless for virtually any structural use. Some of the original trees remain today, along with younger trees, helping to blanket the community's hills and dales with cool semi-shade.

  • Peers Battle in Rancho Santa Fe

  • San Diego's old financial scandals never seem to die. Decades after the principals have gone to the hoosegow and been released, the muck keeps rising to the surface. An example is Whispering Palms, a residential area that includes a golf course in upscale Rancho Santa Fe. (This lies outside super-upscale Rancho Santa Fe's historic "covenant" area, home of the plutocracy, but Whispering Palms is hardly middle class.)

  • Manchester golf-course deal collapses

  • According to the publication Golf Digest, the plan by U-T publisher Douglas Manchester and pro golfer Phil Mickelson to buy Fairbanks Ranch Country Club has collapsed. The facility, which includes tennis courts and a clubhouse, is on lease from the City of San Diego. Manchester and Mickelson signed a letter of intent to buy two months ago.

  • Sequester yourself in the Secret Ranch

  • Welcome to “The Secret Ranch,” a 12-acre estate with more than 12,400 square feet of living space under roof located in the exclusive Covenant of Rancho Santa Fe. “This world class estate was created to provide the perfect balance of family life in a modern ranch environment,”
  • By Dave Rice, Dec. 9, 2015
  • Rancho Santa Fe’s devilish covenant with John Moores

  • Known mostly by outsiders for its prodigious water use, wooded Rancho Santa Fe is in the midst of a bitter struggle for control of its all-powerful association board, along with millions of dollars for a gold-plated, super-speed internet hookup that could turn the horsey suburb into a lucrative high-tech hub.
