Property description

Escape to Provence right near Julian, with this private, tranquil setting in an orchard of apples, pears, plums, pomegranates, nectarines, and persimmons. A spacious, four-bedroom, three-and-one-half bath home overlooking the three peaks of the Cuyamaca Mountains sits in a Monet garden of daffodils, tulips, peonies, lilacs, and every color iris you have ever seen. Leave a few cherries for the blue jays or munch on perfectly ripe apricots, or next month's peaches.

For an all organic lunch, you may want to check with the gardener about the corn or tomatoes. If the winter greens are gone, there would be zucchini or eggplant to throw on the grill. Plan a dinner for your group under the grape arbor while watching the three peaks change into purple sunsets. Relax, walk, hike, bike, go fishing, visit the town of Julian or the desert.

When snow covers the plum blossoms, cozy up around the family room fireplace and check out one of the many games around.

This lovely 2-story home has everything!

The 3600 sq foot house sits on one acre of lovingly tended property. The landscape changes daily so it is impossible to predict what might be blooming or ripe in the gardens. There are fruit trees, pine and cedar trees, flowers, organic gardens and a beautiful mountain view. It is located on a private street in the Pine Hills area of Julian.

Main floor features:

FAMILY ROOM with stone fireplace, oak bookcases, and entertainment center (DVD/VCR and cable TV). The room has a beautiful view, sliding doors to the patio area that overlooks part of the garden, and see-thru area into the kitchen for comfortable family living. There is also a table for eating or playing games in the family area. There are a table and chairs for eating on the patio plus a separate formal elevated dining area in another part of the ground floor next to another living area with huge sectional sofa (enough for 2 people to stretch out comfortably).

WET BAR with double sink, oak cupboards and wine closet adjoins the Family Room.

COOK’S DELIGHT KITCHEN with garden window with meadow, pond and mountain views. There is a center island with cook top and eat-at counter.

TWO LARGE BEDROOMS and BATHS plus and an additional half bath for convenience.

EXTRA SLEEPING ROOM /Former OFFICE: Optional with couch only for an individual.

Upstairs:

BEAUTIFUL MASTER BEDROOM SUITE with a fireplace, sitting area and balcony with a panoramic view of the Cuyamaca mountains. There is a vanity area with walk-in closet, 2 sinks, shower, separate toilet room, separate vanity bench.

SECOND BEDROOM is dormitory style with 2 twin beds.

Sleeps eight people in beds but as many as twelve people have stayed in the house. There is a huge sofa (where 2 people could stretch out) in the living area and another sofa in the family room.

One person described the house as a “great big hug”. It is very comfortable for families with children, groups of friends, and equally appealing to couples with dogs.

Pets welcome at 'Corgi's Castle' with approval in advance.

No Smoking Facility.
