Scripps Ranch Real Estate
Newspaper magnate E.W. Scripps came upon the area that is now known as Scripps Ranch in 1890. The countryside reminded him of Algeria. Scripps often suffered from colds and would go to Algeria to avoid them in part because of the climate that country offered. He purchased an initial 400 acres along with his half-sister, Ellen Browning Scripps. Shortly thereafter they expanded their holdings to 2,100 acres.

E.W. Scripps built his home which he called Miramar on the ranch in 1898 the house was named after Archduke Maximillian's castle in Italy. It was his home until 1917. The home featured an adobe wing and was built in the architecture of Northern Africa.

The Scripps Ranch of today sits just east and above of the I-15 freeway in and around a series of hills, mesas and valleys. The tree-lined streets feature both middle and upper class homes. A large portion of the open areas of Scripps Ranch is reserved for recreation and nature preserves.

The area offers excellent schools along with a quiet, small town atmosphere. Miramar Lake offers up hiking and fishing opportunities for residents that enjoy outdoor activities. Soccer is a popular neighborhood sport.

On the southern edge of the area the Scripps Ranch Business Park is home to corporations like Geico Insurance and several service-oriented and smaller product companies. Goods and services and shopping are all centrally located for area residents. The major retail offerings on Mira Mesa Boulevard are a short distance away.

Scripps Ranch attracts families and couples that are starting out. The northern edge of the area is experiencing rapid growth of new home construction.
