Del Sur Community New Listing
Run, don’t walk to this charming Sentinel home in popular Del Sur. Sited on a hilltop lot with panoramic views of the hillsides you will have to remind yourself that you are in California and not the hills of Tuscany! Ocean breezes are yours along with watching the balloons from Del Mar passing in the afternoons. I am told that Del Sur is about 9 miles to the coast as the crow flies. This particular home was a model built by John Laing Luxury homes. Unfortunately this builder went under right at the start of this project. Davidson homes took over and built a few Sentinels and now Bridgefield homes plans to build some. None of the other Sentinels have the upgrades and location this home has! If you want the best this is it!
15688 Beltaire Lane is Loaded With Upgrades
The list is so long but includes travertine flooring in living areas, gorgeous granite counters in the kitchen and utility room, top of the line appliances including Thermador stainless 6 burner range top, convention/bake oven, micro, warming drawer, and 2 built in refrigerators again in gorgeous stainless. The stainless apron or farmhouse sink is my favorite. The cabinets are richly stained and the kitchen and master bathroom cabinets have wood drawer framework. The lighting fixtures were carefully chosen with many extra overhead canned lights. All the window coverings are custom and neutral so they will blend with any decor. The baths all have custom tile and or stone finishes. Multiple french doors lead to exterior patios. A gorgeous spa is located right outside the master suite on the ground floor. Did I mention views, views views! Enjoy the virtual tour by clicking on the link below:
Sentinels Are Extremely Popular
The Sentinels were first built in Santaluz. They were immediately popular and continue to be in high demand. There is nothing like them! They are clustered in a “pod” with cobblestone courtyard entry. They all have lovely patios that extend the living space. They are a perfect “turn key go” home where yard maintenance is at a minimum yet privacy and living style are at maximized. There is so much architectural interest with arch ways, stonework and multiple windows and french doors. Living in Santaluz I do specialize in both Santaluz and the Del Sur communities. The myriad of social activities and is endless. What I really like about Del Sur are the multiple parks and solar heated pools. A new park/pool is being built in walking distance to this home!

Del Sur in 92127 is a Great Community
I just sold my second Presidio home by Standard Pacific. A Navy MD purchased the largest model on a view lot and is now having fun selecting all the finishing upgrades! This is an exceptional builder. The homes are detailed beautifully and full of value. The floor plans offer large kitchens and family rooms and the Del Sur rooms in patio areas integrate indoor spaces I love this community! It is coastal close ; 9 miles as the crow flies and due to this inland location enjoys perfect sunshine in the mornings! There are 6 parks open an multiple solar heated swimming pools. The Poway Schools are outstanding with the Del Sur Elementary School being #1 in the district. The tree lined streets and varying styles and color palettes of the himes make this duch an appealing community to call home.
The reason I selected the following home is because it has a fabulous floorplan with 4 spacious bedrooms and because it is what we call “standing inventory”. This home is an exceptional value and is loaded with upgrades at a phenomenal price! It also is located on a great lot. Let us show you this home and any others in Del Sur! This is the community you will fall in love with and want to call home!

Del Sur Elementary, one of Poway Unified School District Schools, is successfully providing individualized learning opportunities to their kindergarten students utilizing laptops. I was interested in learning more about how they used the laptops with the students and found this video to be really informative. Transforming Education
The way they use the laptops for math and storytelling is amazing. The students are learning to write stories and they have even written their own blogs.
The innovative way they are bringing individualized education to their Kindergarten class aligns up with the PUSD’s Strategic Vision. “
“Serving as the gateway to our students’ future, we will open, not restrict, the range of opportunities and choices and prepare them for success as they pursue their interest and passions upon graduation. “

They say some of the best and honest reviews of a business come from those who intereact with it every day. The same line of thinking can apply to a school review. The students at Del Sur Elementary room 137 shared their thoughts about their school in a post on
Del Sur Living
A top marketing team would have a challenge writing better descriptions of the Del Sur Elementary School. The students’ pride in their school, teachers and principal came through in their descriptions.
Excerpt from the article include the following:
Olivia B. “The Del Sur school is in a safe community. We have ways to keep ourselves healthy. We have a running club where
we run around a track, and each lap is a quarter mile. We have an art teacher and a music teacher who come on Wednesdays. We have fundraisers to raise money for our school. We have parent volunteers who help our classes. We have a wonderful principal, who does principal’s reading challenges, and that is with AR quiz points. We have learning websites, such as Lexia and Compass Learning.
We are a great school.”
Bede M. “Del Sur is a school is full of community and respect. We have wonderful art teachers, music teachers and many volunteers. We also have Compass Learning, Edmodo, Lexia and many more terrific learning websites. Our school loves reading. We have principal reading challenges and are in the midst of one right now. We have a great principal who encourages us to respect the world and learn. We also have computers galore. We have a computer lab, and little laptops in kindergarten classes and out in the hallways. I think Del Sur Elementary is a great school.”
Alex H. “People should know that Del Sur has over 500 students. They can also learn that we have principal’s reading challenge and running club. We care about everything and everyone in the world!!!!!!! We have a library in the classroom. We have another BIG library, too. We also have field day in June. We also have laptops. Our school is an indoor school. Indoor schools are usually in Indiana.”
Josh D. “ I am in the best class. I like my school, I like my teacher, I like reading. We have a nice school. Del Sur has a library with a super nice librarian. She loves books. The libary has lots of chapter books, like Harry Potter and The Hobbit.
Del Sur is a vibrant and growing community. So many people are selecting this community because of the reputation of the Poway Unifed Schools that the children attend. In addition people love the parks, pools, trails, climate and close proximity to San Diego and easy commutes.

Selecting Specific School Districts When Purchasing a Home
One of the most important criteria buyers give us when deciding what community or neighborhood they want is to research school districts. Once they have determined some of the top districts and then the top schools in the district they want to know what specific streets and neighborhoods are within the school boundaries. We always ask our clients to confirm the areas by calling the specific school district regional office. Most of the school websites have maps you can use also. This can become confusing and frustrating.
I was recently introduced to a new site; www.education.com. I did give this site a test drive with my address. The school selections were correct. I would still tell people to speak with a school representative as boundaries are subject to change. I know for a fact the high school in my area is suppose to be changed next year. Now I do not know if they will make the kids who are now attending their current school change or if they have any choices. All of these issues are cause for concern. When I had school age children we were committed to the Poway Unified School District. Within the district I wanted the kids to stay in their schools so they would not have to change clubs, activities or have to make new friends. Unfortunately as neighborhoods such as Del Sur, 4S Ranch and Santaluz grow they add more children to the district and there has to be an evaluation of the class sizes and whether the schools can accommodate the growth.

It is 2 miles west of I-15 but can also be accessed by taking 56 from the coast and Camino del Sur. I own property in 4S Ranch because I knew it would be a fabulous area that would be popular for years to come. Here are my 10 reasons why people need to consider calling 4S Ranch their new neighborhood.
4s Ranch Homes Have Value
With the change in the market and because 4S is a relatively new community where many people purchased during the height of the market there are fabulous values. This holds true for both resales and new construction. There have been quite a few distressed sales; shprt sale and bank owned properties. We monitor the distressed properties so if this is what you are looking for please let us know! The “traditional” sales have been well priced. The new construction is a tremendous value with builders offering incentives.
4S Ranch Has Excellent Schools
Rancho Bernardo is part of the acclaimed Poway Unified School District. The schools in 4S are newer and have received high grades on testing. The schools include Monterey Ridge, Stone Ranch Elementary, Oak Valley Middle Schools and Del Norte High School. Read the rest of this entry »
