A semi-rural community in Encinitas with winding two-lane roads, horse country, and private neighborhoods.
As the most eastern part of Encinitas, Olivenhain encompasses some of the most stunning properties in North County. As one of the five communities of Encinitas, Olivenhain stretches from San Elijo Lagoon in the south, along both sides of Manchester Avenue and Rancho Santa Fe Road, and out to a road called Lone Jack. Olivenhain is known for having larger homes and lots than the rest of Encinitas. It can best be described as a blend between Encinitas and Rancho Santa Fe. You get the laid back vibe of Encinitas, with the large lots, extra space, and privacy of RSF. It is also home to many equestrian homes/facilities so if that is important to you then this is a great place to live.
