On the eastern flank of Encinitas, Olivenhain is a beautiful rural area with open horse country, pastures, flower farms, and exclusive real estate. Warm summer evenings are perfect for star gazing in Olivenhain, which has a “dark skies” policy designed to protect your view of the night sky. Thanks to low-density zoning and the involvement of its committed residents, Olivenhain is a pretty residential region of winding two-lane roads, rail fences, horse trails and hiking paths. Sidewalks and streetlights are a rarity, and many families have horses and beautiful gardens. Since Olivenhain is located within the City of Encinitas, all of the census and demographic data for residents of Olivenhain are included as part of the information reported for City of Encinitas
Olivenhain is in San Diego County, California, about five miles inland from downtown Encinitas. Stretching from San Elijo Lagoon in the south to Lone Jack Road in the north, Olivenhain runs along both sides of Manchester Avenue and Rancho Santa Fe Road. I-5 is five or six miles west of Olivenhain and it follows the coast south to San Diego (about thirty miles south) and north to Los Angeles (about one-hundred-thirty miles). I-15 also journeys north/south, and is ten to fifteen miles east of Olivenhain.
Nearby Encinitas and Carlsbad provide convenient shopping and services. Homes are upscale and spacious and Olivenhain real estate is valuable and highly sought after. There are only a hundred condominiums in the community, and the remainder of the dwellings are large single family homes, many on half-acre lots or more with citrus and avocado orchards in their back yards. Careful planning ensured that the community maintained a rural feel. Olivenhain will long remain a rural haven close to city amenities and the gorgeous beaches of the Pacific Coast.
Olivenhain students attend some of the best schools in San Diego County. The Encinitas Union Elementary School District is rated high in county and state comparisons and the San Dieguito Union High School District has state and national recognition for excellence.
