Desert. Various landscape formations. Desert flowers.

ATV, Jeep rides. Julian, old gold mining town, within an hour's scenic drive. Julian nowadays is famous for its tasty apples and apple-pie. The Borrego Chamber of Commerce East of Christmas Circle, immediately on the left hand side as you go toward Salton Sea on 22, has a lot of information available. Also visit De Anza State Park Visitor Center at the end of Palm Canyon Drive. They can also provide a lot of useful information.

 

Owner info

About the owner: I am a retired person in my late fifties, married to my lovely wife, Brigitta (in the picture) for over 25 years. We have a daughter, Ashley, and a son, Edward, both of whom are in medical school. Hopefully they'll be able to help their aging father. :) We moved to Southern California from Canada thirteen years ago and love it. We visited the desert a couple of times with some prejudice, I might add, but the more we came the more we enjoyed it. Outdoor activities, the serenity and beauty of the desert, the air and the sky are all wonderful here. I find it healing, very relaxing to spend time here. The desert air, the stars at night, the whole environment is magical. There are places to visit, sights to see, trails to discover. It's an experience you'll want to return to. I hope you'll enjoy it too.

Why the Owner Chose Borrego Springs:
My family and I just wanted to have a desert retreat, but still have the amenities and conveniences of a town setting. This property is well located and comfortable. It has charm and character. The neighbors are friendly and quiet. All amenities are within a short distance, yet the desert is at our doorstep.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
All the beauty, serenity, the air, the night sky, the magic of the desert is here for you. I like to sit out on the patio in the evening and watch as the sun sets over the mountains, lean back in my chair and marvel at the stars, or the morning sky at sunrise. Sometimes a bird like the road runner in my picture visits. It is the perfect place if your are looking for a relaxing, quiet location. But it also offers a lot of opportunity for an active lifestyle in the surrounding areas. We are in the De Anza Borrego Desert with trails to discover, sights to see, and to play and enjoy the desert. (Ample information is available on the internet.)
