The Groves Neighborhood Guide

Right next door to The Covenant is The Groves. Made up of just 44 estates, this small gated community is built on a former orange grove. You can still see many citrus trees around the neighborhood, and the scent of orange blossom permeates the air in springtime. Building lots here vary in size from one to six acres, and the rules require property owners to keep part of it planted with citrus trees. The HOA collects fees to keep up the common areas, including the hiking trails that meander through the area and the two tennis courts.

The nearest commercial center is the Village of Rancho Santa Fe, which houses residents’ everyday needs – banks, restaurants, boutiques, the post office and library, professional offices, and so on. If you want more than the Village shopping centers of the various Rancho Santa Fe communities can offer you, Encinitas is only a few miles away to the west.

El Camino Del Norte is the main street in the area. County Route S6 winds away to the east and Rancho Santa Fe Road is on the west side.
