Property description

3,500 square feet of open plan living with attention to detail in all rooms.

This spacious home sits on 2/3 of an acre over looking a small valley and surrounding hills. As you walk through the front door you will immediately feel welcomed with rich colored walls, large open spaces, a kitchen to die for and comfort staring at you from every corner of the home. The master suite is massive with a King size bed, en-suite bathroom (which has a soaking tub, dual his/her shower stall, dual sinks and private commode), walk-in-closet and your own personal fireplace. The two other bedrooms are large, both containing a queen size bed and a single bed. The second bathroom has a tub/shower stall, single sink and commode. The half bath/guest bathroom has a sink and a commode (beautifully decorated by the way). The living area is split into four large and spacious rooms which comprise of, the kitchen with top of the range appliances, granite counters, a large island and a breakfast eating area (table can easily accommodate 6 people), the dining room which can easily seat ten has its own French double doors leading to a private patio, the game room with kids and young adults in mind contains two single beds, seating areas, a 55inch T.V. which is Wii connected for your pleasure and its own French doors leading out to the West deck and finally the living room with its own fireplace, seating for 15, a 60inch T.V offering cable, Netflix, DVD player (library of DVD`s included), Bose speakers and generally a place to relax. The kitchen double doors lead out to the patio, pool and spa area, which is bathed in sunlight all day long and being situated above most of the surrounding properties it offers privacy as well, (perfect for the times when you`re working on getting that tan). Because we are in a valley as such, every afternoon a nice calm breeze is supplied from the valley floor, somewhat cooling the hottest time of the day, making outdoor living and dining even more pleasurable. Come relax and vacation at our little Ranchita.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Fraser and Cindy met in 1990 and married in 1991 and both know San Diego and it`s surrounding area very well. Their pleasures in life are spending time with the family, (3 kids, 6 grandchildren and counting), cooking at home and putting smiles on other peoples faces, we look forward to meeting you.

Why the Owner Chose La Mesa:
In 2003 we chose this property because of the school district and what it had to offer our then 5 year old daughter. Since that time we have realized how fortunate we were to live in such a community. We are close to everything that San Diego has to offer yet live in a more relaxed atmosphere making life itself more relaxed. Go have fun and take full advantage of what the Town has to offer you, and when your day has finished let the house take care of you and get you ready for your next adventure.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home is a joy, we completely remodeled in 2005 and have kept up on it`s maintenance since then, it has large rooms, a very open plan feel, outside to inside living is seamless making it feel much more roomy and it contains everything a family or more would want to relax, enjoy and share special memories.
