WHERE IS BRESSI RANCH LOCATED?

Bressi Ranch is located at the junction of El Camino Real and Palomar Airport Road in Carlsbad.  The community is about 4 miles inland, 35 miles from downtown San Diego, about 100 miles south of LA, and 6 miles from Carlsbad Village.

WHY DO PEOPLE LIVE IN BRESSI RANCH?

Bressi Ranch prides itself on walkability, a comfortable sense of community, and easy access to parks, schools and the community center, yet close to major commuting routes (El Camino Real, Palomar Airport Road, the 5 freeway).

Unlike other planned communities, Bressi Ranch in Carlsbad California offers the well-established Bressi Ranch Village Center (anchored by Trader’s Joe’s and Stater Bros. Grocery) at the northeast corner, with retail shops, restaurants (e.g., Tommy V’s Urban Kitchen) and services. There is also a mixed-use office park (both leased and owned space), multiple small parks and recreation areas, the private Village Club for residents, the Carlsbad Boys and Girls Club, and 200 acres of open spaces and trails.

There are community-sponsored events and parties, multiple neighborhood clubs, and activities (movies, block parties, group garage sales) throughout the year for residents to enjoy.

Homes in Bressi Ranch

WHAT’S THE NEIGHBORHOOD LIKE?

Bressi Ranch in Carlsbad California encompasses 8 neighborhoods of homes of varying styles, sizes and price ranges, suitable for a broad range of buyers, developed beginning in 2005.

Homes range in size from around 2100 SF to almost 6000 SF, with 3 to 5 bedrooms and 2.5 to 5 baths. Lot sizes vary, beginning around 4000 SF, with the largest and most expensive homes (over $1 million) having up to about ½ acre.

A unique feature of many homes is the New England styling including front porches, and the placement of garages (in many homes) at the rear of the property and accessed by an alley, rather than at the front as is more common in most Southern California subdivisions.

Bressi Ranch homes are all single family detached, however Mulberry offers affordable condo housing (part of the City of Carlsbad affordable housing program) and ActivCare, adjacent to the Bressi Village Shopping Center, provides housing for seniors with dementia and Alzheimer’s.

The Bressi Ranch neighborhood location allows easy access to amenities such as shopping (e.g., The Forum in South Carlsbad; the Carlsbad Premium Outlets Mall), restaurants, and things to do in Carlsbad as well as neighboring San Marcos. World-famous Legoland is close by, as are several golf courses (Omni La Costa Resort and Spa, The Crossings at Carlsbad, Aviara).

And of course the Carlsbad beaches are only a 15 - 20 minute drive. The Palomar Airport provides public and private flights out of Carlsbad to LA and other cities.
