Olivenhain Real Estate
Olivenhain is a rural community in Encinitas. Formerly the site of olive groves, Olivenhain became a residential community after World War II. Located a few minutes from the beach, and to the north of Ranch Santa Fe, Olivenhain combines quiet country living with modern amenities and coastal access. Originally established by German immigrants in 1884, it was incorporated into the city of Encinitas in 1986.
Olivenhain Homes for Sale
Olivenhain real estate comprises private homes on large lots, and many horse properties. Tall, mature trees give neighbors privacy. The few condos are rarely on the market. The rural ambience is by design, as development is guided by the collective interests of residents. Existing developments include Double L Ranch, Country Rose, Knightsbridge and Windsor Rose.
Community activism is strong. Residents work hard to preserve the country lifestyle. The dark skies policy and the extensive trail system are points of pride for locals.
Community events include the beer and bratwurst festival at the Olivenhain Meeting Hall as well as craft fairs and 4-H meetings.
