Rancho Penasquitos Real Estate


Rancho Peñasquitos is a community in the northeastern part of the city of San Diego, California. It abuts Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve - an open space preserve that offers hiking, biking, and equestrian trails. Rancho Peñasquitos is a quiet, well-maintained suburban community encompassing nearly 6,500 acres of mesas and rolling hills.

Thanks to the hilly terrain, each neighborhood is distinct from the next, providing a feeling of privacy and peace. Though located within San Diego city limits, the community feels far removed from the excitement and chaos of the nation's sixth largest city. Rancho Peñasquitos is identified as a Planned Urbanized community in the City's Progress Guide and General Plan.  Many young families choose to move Rancho Peñasquitos, as it is considered one of the best places for families with kids to live. The schools are part of the Poway Unified School District. It is one of the highest scoring school districts in San Diego County and offers plenty of sports and activity programs for kids. Most of the homes in Rancho Peñasquitos were built in the 1960s and 1970s, although beautiful new custom stucco homes are always being built around the community.  Condominiums and townhouses are scarce in Rancho Peñasquitos.
