For peaceful, relaxed, living in Rancho Santa Fe, Del Rayo Downs provides an ideal atmosphere. The patio homes in this exclusive community are smaller than those found in some of the surrounding RSF neighborhoods. Del Rayo Downs is a preferred area for smaller families, empty nesters, and retirees. The neighboring community of the Del Rayo Estates has some of the largest estate properties in Rancho Santa Fe, so there are homes at Del Rayo for every taste and preference. The community is nestled between Morgan Run Resort and Country Club to the West, Rancho Santa Fe Farms Country Club to the East.
Del Rayo Downs is a gated neighborhood, with a community pool, clubhouse, and tennis courts. There are sixty-five patio-homes with three to five bedrooms and living areas between 2,500 and 4,300 square feet. The houses were built beginning in 1987 by local developers Gus Gardner and Gene Klein (former owner of the San Diego Chargers). The architecture of the homes is Mediterranean style. Many of the houses have wonderful views of the surrounding horse pastures and golf courses.
Most of the houses at Del Rayo Downs are semi-custom homes. There is one custom-built house at Del Rayo Downs nicknamed “Villa Royal.” At 4,300 square feet, this is the largest of the Del Rayo Downs houses.
Streets in the Del Rayo Downs neighborhood include Churchill Downs, Saratoga Corte, and Pimlico Corte. The Del Rayo development carries a theme that appeals to horse enthusiasts and is aptly located very nearby the Del Mar Polo Fields. Drive just a few minutes to the west to get to Interstate 5, the Del Mar racetrack, and the Del Mar beaches and Village. It is only about 20 to 30 minutes to the San Diego International Airport or the downtown nightlife.
Children in the neighborhood attend the elementary school in Rancho Santa Fe (Solana Santa Fe Elementary) and graduate into Earl Warren Middle School and Torrey Pines High School in Carmel Valley.
