Some Monterey Peninsula locals know very little about it, but the Santa Lucia Preserve is one of Monterey County’s off the beaten-path treasures.

monterey peninsula Some of the wealthiest people in the world build homes in the Santa Lucia Preserve, and here are four reasons why:

1. The Santa Lucia Preserve is gorgeous and has sweeping views.

2. The Santa Lucia Preserve is tucked away in the coastal hills, yet not far from town.

3. The Santa Lucia Preserve is quiet -- just you and nature, and you rarely see your neighbors.

4. The Santa Lucia Preserve is protected and has very little traffic.

What began as a cattle ranch that served as a retreat for the wealthy Oppenheimer family in the 1920s, the Santa Lucia Preserve today is a conservancy of 20,000 acres, 298 lots, 100 miles of hiking, biking, and equestrian trails, and an 18 acre Moore’s Lake. It is a connected and dynamic community that offers a sports center, equestrian center, lodging, a private golf course, concierge, and catering services.

Some of the world’s elite and royalty build custom homes here. Our friend, Rick Aguilar, owns Santa Lucia Builders Limited, and has built some of the finest custom homes in the entire Santa Lucia Preserve.
