Del Sur is the final phase of Black Mountain Ranch.There is inspiration from the best of San Diego’s past including the historic neighborhoods of Mission Hills, Kensington, La Jolla and Coronado that have charmed generations of San Diegans with their architectural diversity and pedestrian nature. Del Sur has translated these aspects into a new community of distinct neighborhoods and created a community that looks boldly to the future while maintaining a respect for the environment.
Homes are designed for people first, with details like varied architectural elevations, entrances and front porches encouraging interaction with neighbors. Almost every home is within walking distance of the six existing community parks—five of which feature solar heated pools.
The natural typography plays a dominant role in community design. Over 1,000 acres have been preserved as open space with an additional 4,000 acres of the adjacent Black Mountain Preserve. Over 18 miles of trails will connect the community, allowing residents to walk and bike to schools and recreation destinations.
Our commitment to conservation began with the very first building at Del Sur—the Ranch House. Built using local and recycled materials, the Ranch House is one of the most eco-friendly buildings in the country, earning the first Platinum LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification in San Diego for new construction from the U.S. Green Building Council in 2007.
