Santa Lucia Preserve

Welcome Home

A mere three miles from beautiful Carmel-bythe-Sea, California, seven miles from world-famous Pebble Beach, and a two-hour drive from San Francisco lies Santa Lucia Preserve, a hidden 20,000-acre community, home to 300 families. The Preserve is a community where you come to disconnect and recharge, a unique, untroubled refuge for families to create and capture memorable moments. This year-round outdoor play ground makes the most of secluded coastal wil derness while offering breathtaking ocean views

high atop the Santa Lucia Mountains. Whether it’s teeing it up on a Top 100 golf course, kayaking on Moore’s Lake, or exploring the wild on horseback, marvelous adventures await. “The Preserve is a perfect vacation spot for our family,” said one member from Texas. “We love the mild climate, the sunshine, and ranch-style living without the maintenance. Here, we find a sense of community and easy access through the Monterey Regional Airport.”

The seeds for Santa Lucia Preserve were planted 30 years ago when developers announced plans for a “community preserve,” an economically viable way to protect the beauty and history of the land with emphasis on preserving its natural splendor. Embracing the dedication to conservation, community, and culture, The Preserve’s development footprint comprises just 2,000 acres, including homes, homesites, golf course, clubs, and nearly 100 miles of trails.Custom-designed homes feature unique and often award-winning architecture in a variety of styles built to complement the landscape. Green design and sustainable building are highly encouraged.

Santa Lucia Preserve gives members and their families opportunities to slow down and immerse in nature. Among the community’s many amenities are The Preserve Golf Club, a premier multi-discipline equestrian center, and a choice of dining venues at the Hacienda and Golf Clubhouse—famous for pairing regional wines with local, organic cuisine. Abundant wildlife makes its home in this natural paradise, surrounded by old growth redwood groves, oak-studded mountains, grassy meadows, and flowing streams. Even playing The Preserve Golf Club has been compared to “enjoying a hike through nature with a golf club in your hand.” Golf course architect Tom Fazio created a stunning layout that offers a challenge, while showcasing wide-open views of the mountains, mammoth oaks, and resident wildlife.

“It’s an amazing feeling to know that 50 years from now, when people drive up the road, it will look and feel exactly as it does now.”

There are no limits here - be it dining al fresco in the courtyard of the 1920’s-era Hacienda, fishing in Moore’s Lake with the grandkids, or hiking with a wildflower expert.

Santa Lucia Preserve has reached its 20th year as a community and includes both custom homes and homesites for those interested in living there. Whether purchasing a home or building your own, a wide range of ‘resident services’ are available to support full-time

“It really is a mind-boggling piece of property,” Fazio says. “You just seem to have the world to yourself here.” The course has been honored with inclusion on Golf Digest’s America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses since 2005. For equestrian enthusiasts, trails run deep into the Santa Lucia Mountains. Professional wranglers offer daily trail rides and Preserve-owned horses are available for members and guests to ride. And when you’re away, rest easy knowing your favorite horse is in extremely capable and caring hands.

No matter the season, The Preserve’s climate provides a welcome embrace, with an average of no fewer than 280 sunny days and daytime temperatures of a pleasant 70 degrees. Summer days can reach 85 degrees, softened by the onshore breeze. Nearly all the annual rain – 27 inches on average – falls between early November and late April. It’s truly a climate that lends itself to year-round outdoor enjoyment of all kinds. The Santa Lucia Preserve is committed to living up to its name, maintaining the land and the traditions as heirlooms to be passed down for ages. It’s a fact never lost on the members. “We expect this place to be part of our family for generations,” said one longtime member.

residents as well as owners from afar. Membership opportunities are available to both residents and non-residents alike. How to get there: The nearest airports are Monterey Regional Airport (MRY), 9 miles; San Jose International Airport (SJC), 79 miles; and San Francisco International Airport (SFO), 120 miles. In 2019, MRY debuted a seasonal direct flight to and from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) on American Airlines. For more information: Visit www.santaluciapreserve.com
