San Diego Country Estates- SDCE, Country Estates... Planned, designed, built and marketed in the 70's by Ray Watt - The community is on 3250 acres in the San Vicente Valley and was designed as a low density, environmentally sensitive residential community with all utilities underground. Lots were sold complete with all public services and they were not allowed to have mass grading done for building sites- the streets and sites were designed to follow the natural contour of the land. The community was built with a site for a fire station, 3 schools and a small commercial strip mall center. 1300 acres were designated as common space; which is 42% of the entire tract; recreational improvements include a champion golf course, equestrian centers (western and English), tennis and park facilities.
There are over 30 miles of riding trails some that lead into the Cleveland National Forrest and the Bureau of Land Management and San Diego County Park land.  Lot sales began in October 1972, at that time the San Vicente Golf Course was complete along with the first equestrian center and the clubhouse facilities.
The current monthly Home Owner Association dues of $98 provides a wealth of amenities to homeowners in SDCE; The clubhouse next to the 18 hole golf course houses the Oaks Grille Restaurant, Par Lounge, pro shop, Olympic pool, tennis courts, a 30 unit lodge and meeting facilities. Ramona Oaks Park has another pool, recreation area, horseshoe pits, picnic facilities, playground equipment, volleyball and is the location of holiday parades, summer night movies and year round activities for the kids which includes camps for tennis, swimming and more.  There is not another planned community like this beautiful, family friendly neighborhood.
Two top ranked elementary schools; Barnett and James Duke are located within the Estates. Lots range from 1/4 acre to an acre with most in the 1/2 acre range; horses are allowed only on the opposite side of San Vicente Rd from the golf course. By 1977 all 3054 of the building sites were sold or reserved.

There are three condominium communities in the Estates; Green Haven, Davis Cup and  and two time shares; The Good Life (64 units next to the tennis courts designed and built by Ray Watt) & Riviera Oaks (70 units next to Ramona Oaks Park built by Pacific Monarch).  All are able to use the SDCE amenities as the condos have their own HOA dues in addition to the Estates dues.
