San Elijo Hills | Award-Winning Master Planned Community in San Marcos, CA

 San ELijo Hills in San Marcos CASan Elijo Hills, in the south west corner of San Marcos, is a highly-rated master planned community on the hills of North County San Diego (actually the highest point in the county at over 3,000 feet above sea level).

Located about 34 miles from San Diego, and a short distance from Rancho Santa Fe Road, San Elijo Hills (some of which is still under construction) was awarded the Master Planned Community of the Year in 2002 by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). The current population is over 6,500, which will increase as the remaining homes are built and occupied.

Established in 2000, San Elijo Hills consists of approximately completed 2200 homes that are currently occupied in a number of different villages, all with easy access to a traditional Town Center (reminiscent of communities in other parts of California and back East). Once complete, there will be over 3000 housing units. Because of the location on the hills, many homes have dramatic distant views of the ocean and panorama extending for miles to the south.

The vision of San Elijo Hills is to provide a self-contained "town" with a feeling of connectedness among its residents and the services and amenities in the local area.

There is a new elementary school, with another school being built, a number of shops, services and a restaurant in the Town Center, a post office, a gas station, small "food mart," and soon an Albertsons Grocery Store.

There are 1100 acres of open space and miles of hiking trails, with gorgeous views of the ocean, hills and panorama, for residents to enjoy. There is even a Community Director, whose job is to assist residents in planning events and activities.

The main shopping area of San Marcos is perhaps a 10 minute drive, with a wide array of services, shops and restaurants. Since the community borders Carlsbad, there is easy access to the shopping, restaurants, golf, tourist attractions and beaches of Carlsbad.

Homes for sale in San Elijo Hills include condos, townhouse, attached and detached homes, and apartments (Copper Creek), many of which are of Mediterranean, Tuscan or Spanish style, however traditional American architecture is also evident.

The views from these new Villages, as well as some of the completed homes, are truly fantastic - to the ocean, north beyond Camp Pendleton, and south to La Jolla and beyond.

San Elijo Hills is a growing and thriving community nestled high in the hills of San Marcos with dramatic views and a sense of community not often found in today's new neighborhoods.

If you are a First Time Buyer, this may be a great community for you to explore, and I am happy to provide more details about the offerings available to you. If you are relocating and considering the San Diego area (North County) this may be an ideal community for you to settle in.

 

I hope you enjoy the tour of San Elijo Hills - turn on your sound and relax!

I was looking (or waiting) for this.  Excellent work, Jeff.  You really are putting out amazing stuff.  You should put a map together with click links to each one of your posts about the communities

Thanks, Brian. I enjoy these profiles although they can be time consuming. Sometimes getting out to do the photos is the hardest part!

Jeff,

Great stuff you are doing! I hope you are saving me one of those California Cove Masterpiece @ Symphony Homes. Their models are amazing.  I am originally from San Diego (working in San Jose, CA) and would like to move into my dream home down there in five years to be closer to my family. Maybe you'll be the listing agent on one of them ;)

Jessica - Thanks you. I apperciate the compliment. San Elijo Hills is a prettyneat town, and there is a diversity of hosuing to choose from. The Cove properties are gorgeous, adnt eh views are some of the most amazing in Southern California, as they are perched on top of the highest point in San Diego County. Of course that comes as a rpice, but given the size and view they are a pretty good deal as compared to homes right along the coast. Come on down!!
