About the Property
Large house is situated on 5 acres- very private & secure
5 bedrooms with all NEW Cal King pillow top mattresses. The house has two separate wings, 5 bedrooms (two master bedrooms), two livingrooms, and three full bathrooms. The patio area has plenty of seating and quiet, cozy nooks. You won't have to worry about parking because there is plenty of space.
*Air conditioner in the entire house (This was installed in spring 2016)
While sitting in the garden with your wine, don't be surprised if you find yourself watching wild cotton tail bunnies, wild hare, humming birds, quail, and small finches, as well as our two 18 year old resident tortoises, George and Tommy.

Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: Built by our family in 2000, this solar powered home allowed us to host our large family and still have room for our friends who often stayed with us. We have lived in SLO for over 30+ years, and we can't imagine living anywhere else. Now that our kids are grown and out of the house, we relocated and turned our beautiful home into this vacation rental. We know you'll enjoy the lovingly cared for property as much as we do. We just had NEW photos taken by Michelle C. Torres-Grant Photography Your welcome to call me at: (805) 305-7373 if I can help with any questions.
