Del Sur encompasses a collection of historic-inspired neighborhoods, homes and parks with award-winning schools and a vibrant community spirit. Over a dozen neighborhoods offer their own distinctive and spaciously-planned townhomes, estates and luxury homes that offer a range of price points for home buyers. Thriving since its unveiling in 2006, this Black Mountain Ranch development sprang up around the Ranch House, a community center built from recycled and local materials. Young couples, growing families and residents over 55 – homeowners in the recently-added Auberge at Del Sur neighborhood – enjoy the village lifestyle. Yearly festivals and events are part of what makes this community special, as well as everyday use of 14 parks, a splash pad, 11 solar-heated pools, 18 miles of nature trails and a new town shopping center. Additionally, Del Sur is surrounded by outdoor recreation areas, equestrian centers, country clubs and shopping centers. The nearby freeways deliver visitors and commuters easily to nearby beaches, downtown San Diego and North County attractions within a 15-minute drive.
