This is the Southern California lifestyle at its best. On a hilltop 15 miles inland from the beach is our home 'El Refugio' (The Refuge). Our home boasts 8500 sq. ft. of living area surrounded by spectacular views of Fallbrook, the distant mountains and the incredible night sky. On a clear day you can see the ocean. Fallbrook is known for its perfect weather, boasting 300 day plus of sunshine, warm days and cool nights. Fallbrook is home to numerous golf courses and Temecula is 15 minutes north with golf, horseback riding, gaming casinos and wine/beer tasting. Oceanside harbor is a 24 mile drive, and downtown San Diego is less than a 50 mile drive. In between the two is the San Diego Zoo, Wild Animal Park, Sea World, and countless golf courses and beaches. We are also a 90 minute drive to Disneyland and other Los Angeles attractions.
The home compliments the beautiful surroundings with its circular architecture, large vanishing edge pool with a 50 foot water slide, and views from every room. Enjoy entertaining either indoor in the living room, family room or recreation room, or outdoors around the pool, or on the circular deck. Watch a movie in the 13 seat movie theater, or on the 60" HDTV in the recreation room, or the 65' HDTV in the family room, all with awesome surround sound. Whole house sound system throughout the house. EVERY bedroom suite has a private bath. All baths are accented with granite counters and lots of tile and stone. Downstairs is a 1000 sq. ft. circular recreation room with pool table, ping pong table and large screen TV with video and gaming, lots of seating and a wet bar. Next to the recreation room is a 400 sq. ft. movie theater with fixed seating for 9, and big bean bags for 4 more. The theater has a 120" screen and a 7.2 surround sound system. We have over 200 movies available. The recreation room opens to the pool area. The salt water pool is lagoon style with a 50 foot infinity edge and 50 foot slide into a splash pool. The solar pool heating keeps the pool 80 degrees plus from June thru October. Summer pool temp is usually 85 degrees. There is a gas pool heater if the sun isn't shining. The large spa spills into the pool. The entire property is powered by an extensive grid-tied solar PV system, which provides all the electricity used during the year. We also have a 40 amp 240 volt charging station for Tesla vehicles. The house is kept cool by 5 separate A/C systems if it gets hot out.
The heart of the house is the huge circular great room with 20 foot open beam ceiling and gourmet kitchen complete with breakfast nook. The kitchen has granite counter tops and all the latest appliances including a Miele built-in Coffee Machine, 4 ovens, a warming oven, three refrigerators, two dishwashers, a Viking stove, a separate Viking wok, and a view that makes cooking fun. The great room has a fireplace and spectacular views. The formal dining room seats twelve, and opens to the formal living room with fireplace. All these rooms open on to the 1000 sq. ft. circular patio, and did I mention the view.
Quality features throughout the house include 3 car garage, extensive use of marble, granite, and other natural stones. Downstairs on the pool level are 3 suites (Island, Pool and City Suites), all with King beds, one with an additional twin and another with a full size futon bed/couch. On the main level is the Royal suite with a king and the Garden suite with a king. Up a circular staircase to the third floor are the Sunrise suite with a king, queen and full futon bed/couch and the Sunset suite with a queen bed. Add it all up and there are beds for 19-21 (21 with 2 in each of the Full Futon beds). In addition, Two queen air beds can be set up in several of the bedrooms or in the recreation room creating a sleeping capacity of 23-25.
We personally manage our property, and we are local so we will promptly address any questions while always maintaining your privacy. We have been catering to family retreats & reunions for the last 9 years, and we have thought of everything to make them fun for the whole family. There are lots of games and cards to play, and we provide chairs, coolers, and other beach amenities.
Experience the California lifestyle at it's best. We hope you choose to relax, refresh, reconnect and retreat to Refugio Del Amor.
