About Valley Center:
There are currently two major casinos in the vicinity of Valley Center—Harrah's Rincon and Valley View; The town has claim to several well known movie/TV personalities to have lived here: John Wayne, Gary Cooper, Fred Astaire, Randolph Scott, Steve Reeves and the husband-and-wife team of June Allyson and Dick Powell all lived for a time in Valley Center.

Lake Wohlford and Lake Dixon are within 10 to 15 minutes drive from your vacation home. You can go fishing, boating, biking/mountain biking, and hiking. Not far from your home is Hell Hole Canyon, a nature preserve where you can hike and experience and view California's native plants and many wildlife.

Once a year, practically the whole town participates in 'Western Days'. This event is traditionally held over the Memorial Day weekend and consists of a community parade, a gathering at the Valley Center Community Center and a rodeo. Another site of interest is The Lavender Fields at Keys Creek Lavender Farm. This USDA Certified Organic Lavender Farm features an on site essential oil distillery, a lavender labyrinth, a farm store/gift shop. During the FALL, Bates Nut Farm becomes the PUMPKIN capital of San Diego County.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: We have traveled wide and far through-out the world and we now plan on staying more than a week at a time in places we have yet to explore or perhaps to return to some of our favorite places that we've visited. We welcome and enjoy meeting our guests from all over the world

                  Why the Owner Chose Valley Center:
                  Valley Center is a special place in San Diego County, tucked away up on the hills where we breathe a sigh of relief the moment we drive up the grade on Valley Center Road. We have wide spaces between the houses. many are on 2 acres and up. Avocados, citrus and ornamental plants are grown in parts of our town. Here, we can be as private as we wish to be and/or we can be small town folks where the neighbors wave as we hike the hilly streets with fabulous views of /and around our neighborhood. Valley Center has an equestrian trail where you need not dismount if you were to cross the street while riding your horse--the street lights have push buttons at horse's height. The movie stars who used to ride their horses around Valley Center such as John Wayne and many others would have approved on how beautiful the town turned out to be.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
                  The salt water pool / slide of course had given us great enjoyment for our family and our 5 grand children during the summer months. The views are outstanding from both front and back of the house. To observe the numerous birds that fly above and those that roam around the property is seeing nature at its best; for example we have a resident road runner (bird) that claims the back yard as his territory. We often see hawks hover overhead in search of prey. Valley Center has few street lights so on clear moonless nights, we could see the stars with more clarity. We have fresh clean air to breath. The people of Valley Center are friendly and many are community oriented.
