Property description

Enjoy this beautiful mountain home located in a quiet, wooded neighborhood two miles east of Julian's historic township. Our architecturally-designed vacation home sits high in a family of oaks just steps away from panoramic desert views. Experience a sense of living in the trees while you relax to the sounds of gentle mountain breezes!

The home's knotty-pine interior includes a dramatic vaulted ceiling and attractive lighting that reflect the ambience of Julian's art community. Artwork lines a stairway that leads to a guest sleeping loft. Our home is pleasingly furnished with many new, comfortable pieces that include a queen-size bed, a double-size bed, and two full-size sleeping futons in the livingroom. We provide the firewood for the wood-burning stove. The home has central heating, central air conditioning, ceiling fans, and many windows for natural air circulation. There is plenty of private parking on this spacious property.

High speed DSL Internet sevice is now available for your personal computer.

Free phone service is available throughout the U.S.A.

Well-mannered pet dogs are welcome with the owner's prior approval. Our property now has a large, fenced (six feet high) area in back of the house where guests can exercise their dogs in an enclosed environment. Dogs may also stay inside the house with their owners. Dogs should be current on their immunizations.

You can use the front deck for outside dining and bird-watching. You may also be visited by our local wildlife families of turkeys, deer, raccoons, bobcats, and foxes. Bring your cameras!

Located at an elevation of 4,450 feet above sea level, the historic gold mining town of Julian is located one hour east of coastal San Diego. San Diegans and out-of-town visitors enjoy its unique proximity to state, national and county parks with plentiful hiking and riding trails. The picturesque Anza Borrego Desert is situated just to the east of us. Beautiful Lake Cuyamaca, available for fishing enthusiasts, lies twenty minutes south. You can use your Julian location to take day trips to these nearby attractions throughout the year.

Situated within areas of apple orchards, Julian is well-known for its delicious apple pies, wine-tasting, sense of history, romantic surroundings, and old goldmine. The township has maintained its historic buildings, that now house good restaurants, boutiques, and old-time melodrama entertainment.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I am a San Diego County native who has recently retired from a career as a community college counselor. I have also enjoyed careers in secondary school teaching and social work with the County of San Diego. My family and I enjoy staying at this beautiful vacation home, where we celebrate special family occasions and holidays. We love the beautiful Julian area, and the unique historic quality of Julian's old gold-mining town.

Why the Owner Chose Julian, CA, USA:
I fell in love with this property when it was on the market early in the 2000s. I had accompanied a close friend who was looking to purchase this home for retirement. The wooded neighborhood, proximity to town, and beautiful house interior left a great impression on me! When the home became available for purchase in 2005, I bought the house and the vacant, adjacent 1/3 acre in back of the house.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Lovely Julian Mountain Retreat has a unique, beautiful interior. The tongue-in grove pine paneling, vaulted living room ceiling, and open beam kitchen ceiling give this home a one-of-a- kind elegance. Although we have neighbors, the home is quite private. The home is situated on a hillside, and looks out into the surrounding trees. My rental guests and my visiting relatives enjoy watching wildlife from the front deck of the house. We love to watch the many migrating birds, turkeys, and deer. As an owner, I have continued to upgrade this home's quality and comfort. I had a circular drive added several years ago, and added a new parking area. The home was recently painted, and has had a new furnace installed. Our central air conditioning is a great asset on warmer days.
