The Crosby Estate is an exclusive residential gold community located in the prestigious area of Rancho Santa Fe in the county of San Diego, CA. the site remains a rural enclave nestled among rolling hills, canyons, native chaparral and the San Dieguito River. The landscape theme is built upon its Rancho Santa Fe heritage. In addition, topography, surrounding native hill sides and arroyos are all used to create a unified community incorporating both native and historic landscape traditions. All architecture will embrace Spanish- inspired forms, embrace the natural surroundings, and use contours to dictate building form and mass. Naturalized landscaping will dominate and architecture should play a reserved role. Beauty in simplicity will be the guiding factor in our effort to echo the area’s gentle topography and natural systems.
