4S Ranch Information and Highlights

Here's a quick rundown of our list:

4S Ranch Information and Highlights

4S Ranch is a beautiful community that likes about twenty five miles north of downtown San Diego and only a short distance away from the Pacific Ocean. To the east of it is Rancho Bernardo. The community is also bordered by the Black Mountain Ranch, and Rancho Penasquitos to the south. The origins of 4S Ranch are somewhat shrouded in mystery. The first portion of what would become 4S Ranch was the first recorded owner of Rancho San Bernardo, Englishman Joseph Snook, in 1842. The “S” in 4S Ranch is believed to stand for the aforementioned Joseph Snook’s last name. The area passed through many different hands, and was sold off many times before it became the beautiful area that it is today and was officially named 4S Ranch. For residents and visitors alike, the area provides a fantastic location, plenty of outdoor activities and plenty more in the way of quality living and exploring.


4S Ranch experiences the typical Californian weather, as well as the swells, heat and light breezes off of the Pacific coast, with higher heats in the rocky hill areas. Temperatures stay fairly consist throughout the year with higher heats, precipitation and humidity involved, especially in the summer months. Residents and visitors alike can expect occasional rainstorms, thunderstorms and high wind velocities associated with storms off the Pacific coast, especially during hurricane season.
