Mediterranean Patio Homes in Del Rayo Downs
Within minutes of Highway 5 and the Del Mar Beaches, Del Rayo Downs is especially appealing to seniors, empty nesters and a smattering of singles. It is a lovely gated community with only 65 patio homes designed in a Mediterranean style with the average lot being two-tenths of an acre. The homes themselves range anywhere from 2500 to 4300 square feet which is more than spacious.
One of Two Neighborhoods in Rancho Del Rayo
Developed in 1987 by Gene Klein who is probably most well known as a former owner of the San Diego Chargers, along with Gus Gardner, Del Rayo Downs is actually one of two neighborhoods that comprise the larger community within Rancho Santa Fe known as Rancho Del Rayo.
Awesome Views of Fairways and Horse Country
There is an awesome view of horse country to the north and to the south can be seen the well manicured fairways of some of the country’s most exclusive golf courses. The average price of a home in this gated community is in the range of $1,000,000 to $2,000,000 which is among some of the most reasonable real estate in Rancho Santa Fe even though it maintains its status as some of the most exclusive property.
Del Rayo Plaza and Local Attractions
Residents have access to the community clubhouse, tennis courts, pool and cabana while they are only a few minutes away from those famed golf courses where it is possible to play alongside some of the top names in pro golf. Then there are some amazing shops located quite near in Del Rayo Plaza, including boutiques, restaurants, a gas station and a local post office. Also nearby is a prized local farm which supplies ‘home grown’ vegetables to locals and gourmet restaurants in both Los Angeles and San Diego.
Since there are only 65 home sites within this community, property tends to sell quickly which is why there are relatively few listings at any point in time. Whether you are an empty nester looking for a fresh start with new memories in the making or a retired couple looking to enjoy the golden years in splendor, Del Rayo Downs just might be what you have in mind.
