Property description

This is the place to come for complete rest, privacy and quiet from modern day distractions. The Pueblo combines rustic charm with up-to-date luxuries. There are no neighbors to disturb your rest, no phones, no computers, no cable TV although there is a large flat screen TV with a small DVD collection and a stereo with music CDs.
Kitchen Equipment:
two-burner stove top, microwave, coffee pot, tea kettle, small fridge, all pots and pans and dishes and spices, propane BBQ outside with side burner.
Horses are always welcome and the trails to the nearby preserve are just 1/4 mile down the dirt road off the property.
Sunbathe on your completely private deck. We have a massage therapist in the area that makes house calls. Sit quietly by the goldfish pond and meditate. Gaze at the stars, listen to the coyotes howl and fire up the grill. There is a private jacuzzi next to the outdoor fire pit.
Horse accommodations are 12' x 20' covered stallion pens, 200' x 70' arena, wash area, cross ties and trails. Bermuda and alfalfa hay provided for an extra $20.00 per horse per night.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We love people, horses, dogs and cats! Debi is an oil painter, a credentialed teacher and a licensed real estate broker. Gregg is a photographer, videographer and motorcycle enthusiast.

Why the Owner Chose Valley Center:
We have been living and riding horses in this rural corner of San Diego County for nearly 10 years and just love the beauty of this place and being so close to nature but only 40 miles from downtown San Diego. We are able to ride our horses from our property through the Hellhole Canyon preserve and the BLM land that backs right into our property. The original owner took almost 10 years to construct the Pueblo and it is made almost entirely of poured concrete. This unique habitat had not been in use for many years and after purchasing the property in 2010, Debi decided to create a unique living space for others to enjoy as well as ourselves.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Living in this area provides the opportunity for star-gazing, hiking, trail riding, exploring the back country and observing birds and other small wildlife. The Pueblo is close enough to San Diego to enjoy a day at the beach, the San Diego Zoo, Mission Bay, or any other of San Diego's wonderful attractions not to mention there are 4 casinos within 15 miles of The Pueblo. The Safari Park is but a 30 minute drive from our property! We are only 20 miles from the Palomar Mountain observatory!
