Substantial Completion
December 2005


The Preserve at Del Mar sits atop the coveted Del Mar Mesa with spectacular 360º views well beyond the 50-acre open space that surrounds this dream subdivision. Thanks to its 440’ elevation, the gated community is completely hidden from below, tucked into the hills of the Los Penasquitos Preserve. This was Watkins Landmark Construction’s first substantial site development project, featuring 32 custom-home lots ranging in size from one-half to one-and-a-quarter acres. We provided all roadwork and native landscaping as well as complete utilities to every lot. A spectacular old-world entrance gate awaits visitors, perfectly complementing the adjoining community mailbox that features reclaimed nothern Canadian barnwood and locally sourced Preserve rock. A mile plus of retaining walls helps to provide each home witht he best views possible.
