Nestled between 4S Ranch and Rancho Santa Fe, the master planned community of Del Sur is one of the top choices for prospective San Diego home buyers. With beautiful homes, grassy neighborhood parks, and a real community feel, Del Sur has quickly become a top-rated San Diego neighborhood for families, young professionals, and retirees alike.
Located on the same expansive plot of historic farmland as 4S Ranch, Del Sur is a newer home community offering everything from condos to luxury estate homes. Home buyers choose Del Sur for its excellent public schools, family-oriented community, and easy access to the I-15 freeway.
Del Sur schools are part of the award-winning Poway Unified School District. The elementary school exclusively serving Del Sur students is Del Sur Elementary School, a National Blue Ribbon School. The Design39Campus is another local public school that offers grades TK-8. The vision of Design39Campus is to provide a modern, individual-focused learning program. It’s ideal for families who are looking for a different sort of teaching experience for their children. Del Sur students feed to Oak Valley Middle School which is located in neighboring 4S Ranch. The prestigious Del Norte High School serves both communities and is located on the border of Del Sur and 4S Ranch. Since its inception, Del Norte High School has graduated many National Merit Scholarship winners along with other students who have earned significant achievements. Private schools in the area include Maranatha Christian Schools and Lifetime Montessori School.
Looking to buy a home in Del Sur? Like the neighboring community of 4S Ranch, Del Sur offers a wide variety of real estate options from condos and townhomes to detached homes and luxury estates. There is an emphasis on eco-friendly design in the Del Sur community. Most homes are newer and include modern amenities that are good for the planet. From energy-saving appliances to low-flow toilets to solar panels, you can feel good about your choice to buy a home in Del Sur.
The Del Sur community was completed in 2006. Prospective buyers should expect that their new home will come with both HOA and Mello-Roos fees. Not familiar with Mello-Roos? When a new community is built, a bond is enacted to pay for roads, schools, and expansion of public services like the police. This cost is passed on to homeowners as installments. Mello-Roos fees typically expire after thirty years.
There’s no better way to soak up the San Diego sun then to get outside in your new community. Did you know that there are miles of trails in the Del Sur area? From walking paths to more challenging mountain biking and hiking trails, it’s easy to get moving when you live in Del Sur. The nearby Black Mountain Open Space Park consists of 2,352 acres of uniquely San Diego landscape. Climbing to the summit of Black Mountain will afford you panoramic 360-degree views over 4S Ranch, Del Sur, Rancho Peñasquitos, Rancho Santa Fe, and more. Del Sur also has a number of great neighborhood parks. There’s even a LEED-certified event venue nearby, The Ranch House at Del Sur, that is perfect for weddings or other celebrations.
When you choose to buy a home in Del Sur, you’ll also be just a short drive from the beach and award-winning golf courses. The closest beaches are in Solana Beach and Cardiff-By-The-Sea, though San Diego boasts seventy miles of gorgeous, sandy coastline. If you love to golf, you’ll love hitting the links in both Rancho Bernardo and Rancho Santa Fe.
Located west of the I-15 freeway, Del Sur blends the best of San Diego’s varied climate. Close enough to the coast that the weather stays mild all year long, but far enough inland that you’ll generally experience warm sunny days with little marine layer. Many homes in Del Sur are equipped with both A/C and solar panels for extra savings on your electricity bills.
The Del Sur Town Center is the community’s largest shopping center. Locals love visiting the Target or the Sprouts to get their weekly shopping done. Restaurants and eateries include Board & Brew, Swami’s Café, Ponce’s Mexican Restaurant, and Piacere Mio Del Sur. Looking for alternative ways to work up a sweat? Check out Orange Theory in the Del Sur Town Center.
The 4S Commons Town Center is also right down the road. This shopping center boasts a Ralphs, an Ace Hardware, a Jimbo’s, and a Cost Plus World Market. Eateries include Karl Strauss, Miguel’s Cocina, and Mostra Coffee, among others.
