San Luis Obispo estate description

Avila Valley Apple Orchard Estate -This new listing features a Mediterranean style 4000 square foot Palace/Executive Retreat, 5 bedrooms and 5 baths, King and Queen sized beds, single beds, laundry room, gourmet kitchen, living room, family room, pool table, dining room, 3 fireplaces, covered outside patio kitchen, swimming pool, hot tub, bocce ball court, outside fire place, outside grill, outside oak pit BBQ grill and the token ping pong table. The main house sleeps 10. There is also a Guest House available for rent! The guest house is 650 square feet and is a swanky love shack, designers delight. It has 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom with a full kitchen and fireplace. It sleeps 2 very romantically. It's a perfect retreat for those looking for a little privacy. The guest house is negotiable depending upon your length of stay and size of your group.

The main house is fully loaded with things you won't even use but we have them anyway. The House feels like home. It's super cozy because we left it the way it was when we lived there full time. When we don't have guests we still love to enjoy the place and we've left a few personal items around. It's welcoming and warm with some great decorations and cool furniture. The house is thick and solid, heated with in-floor thermal/radiant heat. It feels so good and no air has to blow around. The guest house is heated with a charming 2 way gas fireplace.

The kitchen was made for chefs and wannabe's. Lots of room to play around with your favorite formulas and feel free to chop right on the counter top. This is a party kitchen and it seems to always be the place to hang out and relax.
Views from any angle of the 2 acre, fully landscaped compound are stunning. The hillsides are always green and this location has 'the best weather' in SLO county. The beaches can be foggy but it's always lovely in the valley. In the morning you can sip coffee while enjoying the backyard vistas (wearing whatever you want because it's private). The views from the backyard in the summer can be mesmerizing as the coastal fog drifts over the hill and melts away as it meets the warm valley air.

The house is just a mile off of the 101 freeway via San Luis Bay Drive. The beach town of Avila and San Luis Bay is less than 2 miles away. Nearby attractions include the town of Avila and the Harbor as well as countless wine tasting, farmers markets and SLO is only 8 minutes away. There is a little market right across the street in case you need something.

We've even got a few cruiser bikes available in the garage so you can jump on the bike path and be at the beach in just minutes. We also have a few surfboards and wetsuits available if you feel like frolicking in the Pacific and becoming part of the 'food chain'.

This is a sweet house that our family built in 2000 and we have been loving it. The kids are grown now and my wife and I are hiding out in the hills north of Santa Barbara. We decided to do the VRBO thing because so many of our friends and guest have enjoyed the house (I think they enjoyed helping themselves to my wine cellar) and we didn't really want to sell it but ... share it with others. This place has it all and the proximity to everything makes it a wonderful home for a family reunion/getaway/business retreat/girls weekend. (Note: The location is very private and in a gated neighborhood so .... sorry, but we can't allow weddings or large gatherings on the property.)
