On the southeast quadrant of Carlsbad and roughly four miles from the Pacific Ocean is a place called Rancho Carrillo. Nestled on an impressive canyon, this carefully crafted residential community is the epitome of open space as more than half of the canyon and hillsides are a picture of vastness. The other half of the canyon is occupied by several villages in which homeowners reside in their Rancho Carrillo real estate.
Centered around the Leo Carrillo Ranch Park from which the community got its name, Rancho Carrillo is host to a lifestyle that is close to nature. In this once working ranch one can stumble upon aged windmills, adobe buildings made with the hard work of manual labor, and a number of other structures of historical value. Despite that which is man-made, those with a love for nature and a green environment will be happy to be among birds of paradise, bougainvillea, and strong trees.
If you want to relieve your mind from the stress of a rough day, a cycle or a hike along the 4.3 mile Rancho Carrillo Trail is sure to cleanse your thoughts. The pleasing surroundings that radiate all around you are guaranteed to refresh your soul. During those warm sunny weekends residents of Rancho Carrillo real estate can cool off with their children and friends at the Rancho Carrillo Swim Center. Everyone knows that swimming leaves one with an appetite so why not have a picnic here as well?
Because of its location, Rancho Carrillo is within easy reach of the beaches, shopping, Legoland, and The Flower Fields. Homes here are generally affordable with prices ranging from $360,000 to over $1,000,000. You can watch from your window as the setting sun turns the sky a blazing hue of orange with the ocean glistening below.
