Homes in Olivenhain
With a rich history, Olivenhain (German for “olive grove”) is located east of Encinitas and boasts upscale country living with access to incredible cultural, historic, recreational and entertainment attractions in neighboring communities including San Diego. Incorporated into the City of Encinitas in 1986, today Olivenhain is semi-rural and features many beautifully designed custom homes, horse properties and country estates on large lots and a preserved sense of rural lifestyle.
Primarily a small residential town, there is limited shopping or entertainment in the direct vicinity, yet just a short drive away to neighbor Encinitas provides everything one needs and more. Therefore, this is the ideal home for those that prefer a private, more quiet lifestyle, yet desire to be close to all the amenities San Diego county offers.
One of the best features of living in Olivenhain are the many nature trails including biking, walking and horseback riding that are scattered throughout. Access can be found at Taegan Lane as well as the San Elijo Lagoon Ecological Reserve, which also includes the dog-friendly
For families, the highly-regarded Encinitas and San Dieguito Union School Districts serve Olivenhain and offer award-winning schools.
