Pamper yourself with a Provence-like retreat only an hour from San Diego.
Chez Pomme (Apple House) is a charming French Victorian style home on two level, fully-gated acres. This three bedroom, 2 1/2 bath home has been newly renovated for your next vacation.
Chez Pomme is prominently featured in an upcoming feature-length film, The Dinner Guest, that was filmed at the property in the fall of 2013. It has also been the scene of many special family vacations. We welcome you and your friends and family to come visit and create your own special memories.
Enjoy an espresso or glass of wine while relaxing in a rocking chair or glider on the spacious covered porch. Relax in front of the wood-burning stone fireplace in the living room, or settle in by the lovely Mahogany fireplace in the master bedroom retreat.
Your well-behaved dogs will love exploring the two fenced acres, while the kids can play Foosball, basketball or climb the rock-wall in the oversized barn.
The large cook's kitchen is fully equipped for your convenience. Enjoy dining under the stars at the outdoor Pavilion or a romantic meal in the formal dining room. After dinner, jump in the spa then enjoy Smore's in front of a crackling fire in the Chiminea.
There are three bedrooms, all featuring premium mattresses and ceiling fans.
The Garden Room is decorated with bright florals and features chic vintage painted furniture, a vanity, beautiful treetop views, and a comfy double bed.
The Sled Room is decorated Americana style and has an antique, hand-carved Pineapple poster double pillow-top bed, a hand-painted Americana chair, a beautiful mahogany dresser, a hand-painted side table and a vintage sled. It has a walk-in closet.
These two rooms are adjacent to a large, sunny bathroom with a clawfoot tub that is perfect for bubble baths.
The romantic Master bedroom has a queen-size canopy bed, large bay windows, chair rails, a seating area with a mahogany fireplace, a gorgeous walnut armoire, hand-painted side tables, custom balloon valances with blackout shades and a dressing area and bathroom. There is a large 32' HD flat-screen TV that can be viewed from the bed or the sitting area.
Downstairs, the dining room has large bay windows with French lace curtains, an LED fireplace, a French chandelier, a large Cherry hutch, original artwork and a hand-painted red dining room table and chairs. A bench provides for additional seating, up to six people.
The great room has a large wood-burning stone fireplace, a Bose CD player, an iPhone/iPod stand with speakers, a large 47' flatscreen HD TV, and a DVD player.
There is a large DVD library, books and games, stuffed toys for your dog, and a Bocce ball set to play with in the meadow.
There is high-speed internet and a premium HBO package for your viewing enjoyment. There is also an antique rolltop desk for reading or emails.
A sunny breakfast table with seating for four is also in this room. There is a bistro table for two on the veranda outside the kitchen for additional seating.
Outside, enjoy the beauty and privacy of the tree-filled grounds. The large private grounds are shaded by over 300 oak and almost 100 manzanita trees. Winter can bring deep snow, Spring ushers in the daffodils, Summer has fragrant climbing roses twining around the veranda, and Fall with its beautiful colors is a special delight.
Scrub Jays are constant visitors, especially when the feeder is filled with their favorite treat, peanuts in the shell. A two-person glider and white rocking chairs on the large wrap-around front porch are comfy spots to rest and read.
In the back of the house, Adirondack chairs on a ledge-rock raised patio are a comfortable place to stargaze by the fire pit. A gas grill outside is ready for your next cookout. An 8-person Jacuzzi spa is also on this patio. Heaven!
The large barn can accommodate a 32-foot RV, and also has a bunk room for the younger visitors to hang out. The barn has a basketball hoop, a rock-climbing wall and a Foosball table.
The home is a peaceful and private retreat located only two minutes from the town center. Get away from it all and have the time of your life. We invite you to experience all that Chez Pomme has to offer.

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We are former San Diegans who now live in the Oregon Wine Country and love to travel with our three Rottweilers. We have stayed in many pet-friendly rentals in Julian and elsewhere, and always enjoyed them while gathering ideas about how best to welcome our guests and their dogs on their vacation.
Why the Owner Chose Julian: Roy is a doctor and spends most of his days in the OR. When we found this beautiful Victorian home on two gated acres, we fell in love with both the home and the beautiful grounds - there are over 300 mature oak trees on the property. The privacy, the lovely home, the peaceful grounds and the location two minutes from town sold us.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The home is very warm and welcoming, and we especially love the deep front porch with its rocking chairs. In the spring there are Daffodils all over the property and in the summer climbing roses add a beautiful scent. The huge stone fireplace is a terrific place to relax, and the dining pavilion and dining room offer great options for romantic dining spots.
The home is comfortable but is also elegant and welcoming. We had a terrific time scouring estate sales to find beautiful furnishings and artwork to truly make this a home away from home.
Welcome to Chez Pomme!
