4S Ranch Master Association


Nestled in the scenic hills just north of San Diego, the 1700-acre, master-planned community of 4S Ranch includes more than 3,700 homes (4,015 at build-out) fashioned by more than a dozen builders in an array of exterior styles, square footages and floor plans. One of California's finest communities, 4S Ranch has led the way in creating a new sense of luxury. Tree-lined streets with walkable promenades and a variety of façades — from Craftsman and Cape Cod to Spanish Eclectic and hip chateaux — are designed to live together here, surrounded by scenery and wide-open spaces.

Additionally, 4S Ranch boasts a brand new Boys & Girls Club with a $1M Junior Olympic pool and huge indoor gymnasium, available to all families living in the community. There is also a strong community outreach with a full program of events for its members and their guests, plus a menu of activities designed to promote interaction with the public, like summer movies in the park and a fall concert in the park. Additionally, Board members work closely with 4S Ranch Little League and Girls Softball League to promote sports events at the baseball field.

Set on the original 3,600 acres purchased in 1938 by Albert Ralphs, head of the Los Angeles-based grocery store chain, 4S Ranch offers a diversity of natural elements, with more than 10 miles of walking trails, plenty of park land, and 1,600 acres of dedicated open space. 4S Ranch is home to more than 3,500 families, in neighborhoods of spacious condos as well as single-family houses that boast plans of up to 5,300 square feet and expansive lots that permit lush views of the landscaping. With dozens of completed phases, and more homes to come, 4S Ranch attracts a global market and boasts one of the most diverse populations of the coastal regions.


Seamlessly and effectively establish a governing body, corporate entity and operational system for one of the largest master-planned communities in the country.


The Prescott Companies, an Associa Company, has managed 4S Ranch since its inception, worked with the developer, Newland Communities, through the years leading up to the first closings. The Prescott Companies provided noteworthy experience and purview on the creation of the corporate entity, establishing the governing documents, policies and procedures, and operational systems, and employed Prescott’s sister company, Kenmar, the leading DRE Budget consulting firm on the west coast, to set up the DRE budgets for all 250 phases through build-out.

From the beginning, Prescott has paved the way for establishing the 4S Ranch Master Association, never faltering from the Ralphs’ original vision of creating the perfect place to live and a cohesive community for families.
