Located 18 miles north of downtown San Diego and five miles from the beach, Fairbanks Ranch is an exclusive census-designated neighborhood offering idyllic living amidst beautiful lakes, 75 acres of park-like grounds, walking trails, and stunning views of rolling hills. 

Fairbanks Ranch Neighborhood

Fairbanks Ranch comprises two gated communities on approximately 1,240 acres of scenic land that was once home to the Kumeyaay and later passed under the Spanish rule followed by the Mexicans, until silent film star, Douglas Fairbanks, purchased more than 3,000 acres of the area. Today, Fairbanks Ranch is North County’s most affluent master-planned communities known for luxurious, mission-style estates, exclusive golf courses, and equestrian facilities. Part rural estate and residential resort, it’s an extraordinary place to call home.

Fairbanks Ranch Restaurants

From authentic Italian eats to California fare with a gourmet spin, San Diego’s dining scene is diverse and enticing.

MARKET Restaurant + Bar is where Chef Carl Schroeder showcases his passion for product-driven cuisine that highlights California cooking with an Asian twist. Fresh fruits and vegetables are hero ingredients in almost every dish. Standouts from his seasonal menu include grapefruit-avocado salad with goat cheese, blue cheese soufflé with Bartlett pears, and miso-glazed cod with ramen noodles and snap pea tempura.

A beautiful Italian restaurant in North County, Firenze Trattoria creates the perfect romantic backdrop with its Tuscan villa-inspired, flower-bedecked patio with a fountain. Diners enjoy their Italian dining al fresco with authentic dishes such as Butternut Squash Ravioli, Linguini alla Vongole, Pollo alla Parmigiana, and Tiramisu.

Quoted in the New York Times as “Far and away the best restaurant sampled in greater San Diego” Mille Fleurs serves an extraordinary California food presentation with a fantastic French flair. Gnocchi with Duck Confit, Parmesan-Crusted Local Yellowtail, and Pan-Roasted Atlantic Dover Sole are just some of the stunning dishes that diners can enjoy at its French country-inspired outdoor patio.

Things to Do

With a look and feel of a beautiful resort, Fairbanks Ranch will offer amenities that typical neighborhoods don’t have.

Within the gated community, residents have access to a nine-hole putting green, tennis courts, an equestrian center, walking and riding trails, and a park with a playground, volleyball court, and basketball court.

The lakes not only provide a scenic backdrop for the neighborhood but a serene location for paddle boating, catch-and-release fishing, or strolling along the lakeshore.

The Fairbanks Ranch Clubhouse is the heart of the neighborhood, hosting both community and private events in its 4,000 square foot space with red-tiled roofs and graceful archways. It has a full kitchen, a fireplace, a dance floor, expansive covered and open patio areas, and an entrance overlooking the central lake. 

Fairbanks Ranch does not have a large strip of malls, but there is a small shopping center in nearby Rancho Sante Fe with stores such as GSB Men’s Clothier, Ranch Cycles, Kitchen Debonaire, and Le Dimora Home Furniture & Décor. It is also home to the Rancho Santa Fe Farmers Market that takes place every Sunday.
