With 528 homesites when completed, Cielo is a residential development located atop the highest coastal peaks in all of North San Diego County. This guard-gated community sprawls over 1,740 acres with home sites ranging from one to four acres.  New custom homes here start in around $1.9 million, with homes at the highest elevations of 1,400 feet commanding considerably more. Views here stretch from the Coronado Islands in Mexico to San Clemente Island and Palomar Mountain. Semi-custom resale homes built by Davidson are selling from $1.7 million and up. Home sites are available with new sites starting around $900,000 while resales are starting in the $500,000 range.

Club Cielo is a sprawling clubhouse which includes a competitive-sized pool, fitness center, tennis courts, and playgrounds and ballfields, including a climbing wall.  Ciielo Village, a newly-constructed commercial center, is located near the Cielo entrance. Roughly half of the homes are located within the Rancho Santa Fe School District while the others, in the newer sections to the east, are in the Escondido School District.
