This is a beautiful, private and open space home with house privileges of the many common areas. The view room for reading, contemplating, bird watching with three large plate glass windows and two sliding doors showcasing the 300-degree views of coastal mountain ranges such as Palomar Mountain, Mt. Baldy, the San Jacinto Mountains and even Idyllwild that entice you to explore. The open space living room, view room and dining room, features a fireplace with Italian marble; hardwood and travertine flooring with rugs throughout. Cook on your own, or communally, in a large gourmet style kitchen with plenty of granite counter spaces, two sinks, a Bertazzoni oven and range, along with a separate bar or in the BBQ or Traeger smoker area. The dining room sliding door opens out on to a private courtyard where you can choose to eat near hummingbird feeders which are always entertaining. The dining area is to gather with friends for a home-cooked meal in the spacious and well stocked kitchen. Meals can also be cooked on a Traeger smoker meal or BBQ or to dine inside or outside, overlooking the property’s gardens, retreats and patios carved out on two-acres of San Diego hills. Beyond the courtyard with the sit down patio table, is a large seating area where you can completely relax in your downtime, from a action-packed day of working. At night, you can sit gazing at the stars or moon, while a warm fire burns in a large fire pit. In daytime, you can sit in the shade or sunshine enjoying nature, the seven citrus trees, the hummingbirds, Orioles or our three local Red-Tail hawks soar above or swoop up and down on the wind eddies. There is even a raised garden area where you can dip your expertise into the soil and grow your own foods. On Top of the World with a Mountain View is a very comfy, relaxed and enjoyable peaceful environment where one can hang out, invite some friends, have a few laughs and enjoy delicious food. The spacious interior rooms can be used comfortable for up to 20 people in a learning situation or, outside for a much larger venue of 100 people under an open or closed canopy and overlooking the mountains. The stairs and terracing make for a wonderful wedding venue with the bride and groom able to choose from many views in which to marry under a wedding arch. Rent the space yourself with you or your planner taking care of the seating, tables facilities or canopies; or have the owners do the work of doing the same for you, with an appropriate headcount and additional cost. Although "off the beaten track" there is easy access to the I-15, Hwys 78, and 76 freeways and canyons take you into the city and anywhere else you want to go. The neighborhood borders the Native American Reservations of North County, is a short drive north to Temecula Wine County, southeast to the San Diego Wild Animal Park (aka, San Diego Zoo Safari Park), to the west, Carlsbad, La Jolla, Pacific Beach, and to the south, San Diego city and surrounding areas. The Valley Center area boasts cyclist training areas, hiking on the numerous trails and mountains, dream motorcyclist roads, bird-watching, painting scenery, horse country, and an idyllic nature-filled experience. We have hawks, coyotes and owls in the neighborhood. The property is not fenced. No dogs. Serious inquiries only, please.
Smoking spaces will be set up for those who smoke. Please do not smoke in the home nor in any potential fire hazard area. Southern California is quite dry and we must protect our countryside. There is parking near the house and with a large attendance, a lot may be rented next door with previous notice. A Traeger Smoker and the BBQ will be provided with previous notice. If dogs attend must monitored by their owners given there are owls, coyotes, and hawks in the area; the acreage is not fenced in.
