Senterra is as gated community of executive homes at the west side of Rancho Santa Fe, in the East Del Mar, Carmel Valley zip code 92130. The Senterra real estate development is nestled between the Fairbanks Ranch Country Club to the North and Del Mar Country Club to the East, south of San Dieguito Road at Derby Farms Road. The Senterra homes were designed by architect Ray Sutherland and built by Ray Watt.
Many of the houses at Senterra Rancho Santa Fe enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding mountains, hills, and golf course. This is one of the three “Villages of Fairbanks” built by Ray Watt, with these houses having the largest floor plans (four and five bedrooms, ranging from 2,302 square feet to 3,520 square feet). Whereas the other two of the Watt Villages (“Montecito” and “Stratford”) were intended for one and two person households, the Senterra homes were designed for larger households.
The houses here are Mediterranean style with tile roofs. There are three different sections in the neighborhood. Each section has its own community pool and spa. The lower section, named “Senterra Elite”, was designed to be the most upscale of the three. The houses were originally built in 1989-1990, but many of them have been substantially remodeled and upgraded since that time.
The public schools serving the Senterra neighborhood include Solana Santa Fe Elementary School, Earl Warren Middle School, and Torrey Pines High School in Carmel Valley. These are top-rated schools in San Diego, and a big reason why homes in Carmel Valley are so expensive. In addition to the schools, the Senterra community enjoys close proximity to the beaches in Del Mar and Solana Beach and easy access to I-5. The area is much like Rancho Santa Fe, with much lower price tags for similar homes.
Although located in zip code 92130, the area has the definite ambiance of Rancho Santa Fe community. In fact, most of the homeowners here have RSF Post Office Box mailing addresses. The Elementary School is Solana Santa Fe in the Solana Beach Elementary district, and the middle school and high school are in Carmel Valley (Earl Warren Middle and Torrey Pines High).
