Looking for an upscale, wholesome, prestigious, community in San Diego’s rural North County? Consider Olivenhain, population 5,100. Settled by German immigrants in 1884, Olivenhain is convenient to the malls and shopping of Encinitas, Carlsbad and Del Mar, but retains the solitude and tranquility of an earlier era. The quaint, charming community with its hills and fields is horse country.
Spacious Olivenhain homes are situated on large lots with trees that provide considerable privacy. Many of Olivenain’s large custom homes sit on half-acre plus lots and are zoned for horses; Olivenhain residents enjoy miles of tranquil, equestrian trails.
Single family detached homes in Olivenhain range in price from $785,000 for a four bedroom, three bathroom 2,000 square foot home built in 2000, to $4,600,000 for a six bedroom, eight bathroom 8,200 square foot home build in 1972.
There are only 100 condominiums in Olivenhain and they sell quickly when they do go on the market. Many Olivenhain homes have elaborate gardens, as well as orchards with citrus and avocado trees. There are very few sidewalks or streetlights in Olivenhain.
Discriminating Olivenhain residents shop at the low-key West Village Shopping Center. The Harvest Ranch Market features gourmet food, excellent produce and meats, with a marvelous deli.
Olivenhain children attend the Encinitas Union Elementary School District and the prestigious San Dieguito Union High School District. Excellent private schools are also available.
