About Fairbanks Ranch

Fairbanks Ranch gets its name from silent film star Douglas Fairbanks, who purchased the land in the 1920s. The neighborhood feels like a luxury resort due, in part, to its lush, park-like grounds. The landscape is one of gently rolling hills, rushing streams, and tranquil lakes, with bridleways and paths meandering here and there. Residents enjoy access to world-class amenities, and there's a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere throughout the community.

The grounds are complemented by the wonderful Mission-style architecture of the centrally located Fairbanks Ranch Country Club clubhouse, which functions as the heart of the community. This 4,000 square foot facility is where residents gather to socialize. The tasteful decorations, wooden furniture, and tiled floors add an air of elegance and sophistication. There's a dancefloor, kitchen, and large fireplace in the clubhouse, as well as airy patios overlooking the central lake. Residents can wander down to the lakeshore to admire the stunning views and perhaps take a paddleboat out onto the water.

Fairbanks Ranch offers a range of activities for those who enjoy an active, outdoor lifestyle, and thanks to Southern California's enviable climate, residents are able to enjoy their community throughout the year. Fairbanks Ranch is home to five regulation tennis courts and a 9-hole putting green. There's also a fantastic park that's a popular spot among weekend barbeque enthusiasts, as well as local children. Horse enthusiasts are in heaven here, taking full advantage of the Fairbanks Riding Club. This 10-acre facility features 57 stalls for local horses, riding lessons, summer camps, and miles of trails.

Fairbanks Ranch is a residential community with a few services on offer at the Fairbanks Village Plaza, as well as a popular deli.

The Del Rayo Village Shopping Center is home to an array of boutiques and restaurants, as well as an awesome farmers market on Sundays. Elsewhere, the Del Mar Center and Del Mar Highlands Town Center are both within a few minutes' drive.
