The Summit Neighborhood Guide

The Summit is a very small (just 22 homes), very exclusive gated community in the north-central section of Rancho Santa Fe. These large residences (the HOA requires a minimum of 5,000 sq ft) are on lots of about 2 acres each, and typically have private swimming pools, tennis courts, and other amenities. When one of these luxury estates comes on the market, which isn’t often, they usually go for about $2,000,000 and up.

The closest commercial center to this semi-rural neighborhood is the brand-new Cielo Village shopping center. The Del Rayo Village shopping center, which has the Rancho Santa Fe Farmers Market every Sunday morning, is a short drive away. The other Village shopping centers offer their own fine dining and shopping experiences.

If you want to get in a few holes of golf the nearest country clubs are The Crosby and Bridges. Of course, Rancho Santa Fe abounds with upscale country clubs, so you can take your choice. When things get a little too quiet for you here, Escondido and Encinitas are about 20 minutes away.


Country Route S6 runs just south of The Summit, and Interstates 5 and 15 are about 7 miles to the west and east respectively.
