Managing Real Estate Broker with San Diego Previews Real Estate CA BRE# 01101958

 Bonsall isn't an incorporated city, but instead is an identifiable rural area in the scenic rolling hills of North San Diego County. Bonsall is bounded by Fallbrook to the north, Escondido to the east, Vista to the south and Oceanside to the west.

Many of the homes here are custom built and sit on acreage. It is a favorite area for equestrian activities, and is home to several famed thoroughbred breeding and training centers including Vessels Stallion Farm, Moody Farms and San Luis Rey Downs.

Bonsall is a beautiful and well-kept secret in San Diego County. With a population of around 3500, this bucolic community is peppered with avocado, citrus and persimmon groves as well as crops of strawberries and flowers. Crops, horses and residents appreciate summers that are cooled by ocean breezes and winters that are moderated by nearby marine influences.

Bonsall home prices range from around $400,000 for a tract home to $5 million for a 9-acre equestrian estate. There are also condominiums in Bonsall that start in the mid $200's. Schools servicing this area include
Bonsall Elementary School, Bonsall West Elementary School, Vivian Banks Charter School and Sullivan Middle School.

Bonsall has its own public golf course, theSan Luis Rey Downs Golf Resort, which features a magnificent 6750 yard championship golf course in the heart of the San Luis Rey River Valley. It also offers a heated outdoor pool, spa, and the San Luis Rey Wedding Pavilion.

You're right, Roberta - I haven't heard of this area. Sounds like a great place, especially for horse lovers.

Very nice post.  I've heard the city name before, but never knew much about it.  Thanks for giving me a frame of reference for Bansall.
