Property description

Gorgeous, fully furnished two-story open concept home with spacious rooms. The home has a beautiful kitchen with modern stainless steal appliances (Refrigerator, Microwave, Stove, Toaster, Mixer), granite counter tops and new cabinetry. Hot water for drinks is available at the touch of a finger with an instant hot faucet. The family room is large and has a 46-inch LCD TV, including cable and a Wii Gaming System with games. For those that can’t get away from work, there is an office located next to the family room with a printer/FAX, phone and Wi-Fi (allows access to the internet anywhere in the house). A laundry room and bathroom are located near the office and three-car garage. Upstairs are 3 large bedrooms; a master suite, a game room (books, Legos, toys) and a large bonus room with an additional large screen LCD TV, including cable.


In addition to being spacious, the home has views of the surrounding hills and mountains and is located on a quiet street with easy access to the 78 freeway and local Sprinter train station. The home shows like a model home. It has a grand entry, a pergola and patio cover, a small fountain and custom gas grill in the backyard. This vacation home offers you the choice to just relax and enjoy the quiet, beautiful area, take walks to the local park and children's play area, or enjoy the neighborhood recreational facilities which include a large pool, tennis courts, soccer fields, basketball court, and baseball fields. Or, you can simply bike, roller-blade, or take leisurely walk around the scenic neighborhood. If you're the active type, you are only 1.75 miles from the 78 Freeway and all that San Diego, Temecula and the beaches have to offer. Shopping, movie theaters, casual and fine dining can be found 2 to 2.6 miles away (Nordstrom’s Rack, Ross, Sprouts Grocery Store, Elephant Bar Restaurant, Old California Restaurant Row to name a few). Additional shopping can be done at the Carlsbad Outlet Stores or one of the two malls located on the 78 Freeway and I-15 Freeway about 12 miles away. All the hot sites and attractions are easily accessible via freeway or train. LegoLand, Carlsbad and Oceanside Beaches, and the San Diego Wild Animal Park are 12 to 15 miles away. Balboa Park, SeaWorld, Sea Port Village, Old Town, Gas Lamp District and the San Diego Zoo are only 39 miles south of San Marcos. Disneyland is an easy 75 minute ride North (72 miles) via the 78 Freeway and then the I-5 Freeway. Temecula’s Old Town, wine country, and golfing are only 34 miles to the North on the I-15 Freeway.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: I am a retired Software Engineer that worked for Hughes Aircraft and Raytheon for 31 years. I grew up in Southern California where I went to school and got my Masters Degree in Computer Science. I currently live with my wife and son in Murrieta California, which is located about 30 to 40 minutes to the North of San Marcos. When my wife retires in the next 4 to 5 years, we plan to move back to our home in San Marcos.

Why the Owner Chose San Marcos:
I have lived near the ocean my entire life. I grew up in the cooler more cloudy conditions found at the beach. When we bought this home we decided to move inland a little to get more sun. Since It is only 12 miles from the beach, it gets ocean breezes late in the day. However, because it is located away from the beach and up against the hills the sun comes out sooner and stays longer. The home is also centrally located near the 78 and I-15 freeways and was half way between our two jobs. I drove South down the I-15 to San Diego and my wife drove North to Murrieta.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The features of the area that attracted us to this home are the tree lined streets, recreational parks and local parks. The reason we pick this particular home was because it was on a hill. The fill gave us greater separation from our neighbors and great views of the surrounding hills out our back door.
