Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: I love people, horses, And dogs. I am an oil painter, a credentialed teacher and a licensed real estate broker.
Why the Owner Chose Valley Center, CA, USA:
I have been living and riding horses in this rural corner of San Diego County for nearly 15 years and just love the beauty of this place and being so close to nature but only 40 miles from downtown San Diego. I am able to ride horses from our property through the Hellhole Canyon preserve and the BLM land that backs right into our property. The original owner took almost 10 years to construct the Pueblo and it is made almost entirely of poured concrete. This unique habitat had not been in use for many years and after purchasing the property in 2010, Debi decided to create a unique living space for others to enjoy as well as ourselves.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Living in this area provides the opportunity for star-gazing, hiking, trail riding, exploring the back country and observing birds and other small wildlife. The Pueblo is close enough to San Diego to enjoy a day at the beach, the San Diego Zoo, Mission Bay, or any other of San Diego's wonderful attractions not to mention there are 4 casinos within 15 miles of The Pueblo. The Safari Park is but a 30 minute drive from our property! We are only 20 miles from the Palomar Mountain observatory!
