Property description

Surrounded by black oak and pine trees and located in the private, peaceful neighborhood of Whispering Pines this homey cottage rests a mere 1.5 miles to the east of town, off Route 78. The cottage features a queen-sized bed, a sofa sleeper and a flat-screen TV, easily visible from both bed and sofa.

The restroom has all the usual amenities, as well as a jetted tub to relax in. There is a big bay window, perfect for standing by and taking in the scenery, and the kitchenette boasts of a microwave, a small stove and a refrigerator. Another nice feature is the gas fireplace, to sit beside during the cold winters.

The back patio makes a great site for enjoying your morning coffee, outside dining, or simply lounging. It is also an ideal spot for bird-watching and, from there, you stand a good chance of catching a glimpse of some of the local wildlife. Mule deer, wild turkeys, raccoons, foxes and bobcats frequent the hillsides.

Stake your own claim here. You won't regret it.

Julian, a quaint town known for their apple pie and cider, attracts many visitors year round. Many come not only for the pie but to walk the Main Street stopping at each of the shops along the way. Others come for a range of activities from hiking and biking to fishing and horseback riding. Special activities or events happen almost every weekend.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Bud and Diane purchased this property as a weekend getaway in late 2010. They enjoy the site's overall peacefulness and beauty and the quaintness of Julian itself.

Why the Owner Chose Julian:
Our Julian property was purchased to escape the heat of our desert home. It is close enough for us to commute to our jobs and while we will eventually make it our permanent residence after we retire, we wanted to share Julian with others and are able to do this, with a 550 square-foot studio cottage that sits behind the main residence.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Julian, California, once the location of a booming gold rush, is now a picturesque alpine resort about an hour northeast of San Diego. It is an official California Historical Landmark, No. 412, and history buffs will find much to take an interest in, as will anyone with a taste for apple pie, which Julian is famous for. The relative nearness of various state, national and county parks is sure to please avid outdoorspeople, as is the scenic, fish-rich reservoir of Lake Cuyamacha (only about 8 miles to the southeast). Additionally, the area's high elevation treats residents to all four seasons, so there's never really a dull moment.
