Located just east of I-15 and only 20 miles north of downtown San Diego, this master planned community rests on 7,000 idyllic acres topographically defined by pastoral hills, striking canyons and inviting fairways. While taking in the views the area has to offer, one cannot help but notice the red tile roofs and the perfectly manicured medians everywhere. Rancho Bernardo was developed by AVCO Community Developers with great care and attention to detail throughout the community. Offered to its 45,000 residents are a plethora of restaurants, shopping, top of the line medical facilities, libraries, senior activities, youth activities, hiking trails, tennis and golf. Rancho Bernardo is home to many neighborhoods, each of which offers its own unique flavor (two are designated senior communities). And with condos starting in the $200,000’s, single family homes in the $400,000’s and luxury homes in the $800,000’s+ - there is something for everyone in Rancho Bernardo.
