About the property

4 bedroom, 4 bathroom, main house and casita sharing gated courtyard with pool

Live the vineyard life and stay in the winery owner’s hilltop Mediterranean retreat nestled on 15 private acres with breathtaking views bordering on the southern fairway of the Pala Mesa golf resort. Experience unparrelled privacy on an estate with the only home on the hill among the grapevines, avocado and citrus trees. The captivating views of the mountains and valley along with the twinkling lights from the highway at night are nothing short of spectacular.

The 2 bedroom main house has a great room with tongue and groove spruce ceilings, and an enormous rustic stone fireplace with 50” TV. It opens to a private courtyard with swimming pool which makes this either a romantic retreat or a real family get a way. The open gourmet kitchen and the dining area overlook the sunken living area. The massive master suite features a king size bed, 42” TV, fireplace, large private seating area with French doors that open up to the courtyard and pool. The second bedroom features a queen size bed and has its own private bathroom, shower, TV and closet with a washer and dryer. The two bedroom casita guest house is adjacent to the main house. Both bedrooms feature queen beds that share a full bath and a cozy living area with a full kitchen. A group can enjoy privacy, yet share pool and private courtyard with BBQ and outdoor dining area.

While you are there grab a walking stick and stroll along the almost 2 miles of walking trails through the citrus grove and vineyard. Of course you are just steps away from the winery tasting room (Hours of operation: Thurs thru Sun 12:00 am to 6:00 pm). You can choose to mingle with the tasting room guests where you will receive a 2 for 1 wine tasting and discount on your wine purchases. Or remain secluded in the beautiful home and locked gated courtyard.

Take a break from the privacy and go down the hill to spend time at the beautiful Pala Mesa Resort with a round of golf or a game of tennis. Enjoy the clubhouse restaurant, sushi bar, intimate lounge with stone fireplace, or spacious outdoor patio with live entertainment.

Site seeing? You cannot beat this home’s location with easy access to I-15 and Hwy 76. With Fallbrook’s climate known to be the one of the most ideal in the world you can enjoy so many things to see and do. Check out “101 things to do in Fallbrook”. You’ll be amazed there is so much to do in this quaint historical farm town once was the world’s largest producers of avocados.

Feel like putting your toes in the sand? You are 30 minutes away from Oceanside Pacific Harbor were you can enjoy the beach, walk the pier, dine in Oceanside eateries and stay to soak up a fabulous sunset.

Ten minutes north is Temecula Valley Wine Country where you can spend afternoon sampling wines in the tasting room of more than 40 wineries. Temecula’s downtown Front Street houses antique shops, boutiques, and more tasting rooms for wine, beer and olive oil. Make sure to stop at the Farmers Market on Saturdays to see the diversity that is California.

If you are seeking lady luck there are 3 Casinos as close as 5 miles to the east. Pechanga, Pala and Pauma casinos offer the best in gaming. They are also know for live nationally renowned entertainment and great restaurants.

About Sascha LaRusso

Owners purchased the home and property to plant a vineyard and open a boutique winery which is their retirement project. They currently reside in Michigan, and travel frequently to California to run their winery and other businesses.

Sascha LaRusso purchased this estate in 2013

Why Sascha LaRusso chose San Diego County

Ron and Lisa have travelled all over world. However they fell in love with the Fallbrook area which reminds Ron of the Italian countryside where he spent his summers on his grandfathers farm. Their plan is to retire in Fallbrook, they have another home just down the street, and run the vineyard and winery.

What makes this estate unique

The spectacular views are breathtaking both day and night. The privacy of the gated courtyard, the beautiful walking trails make you think you are miles away in the country. However just at the bottom of the hill is the Pala Mesa Golf Resort with it's AquaTerra restaurant and all its amenities.

Fantastic Property!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the pleasure of staying at Estate de Iachabelli for my daughters pre/post wedding. What a wonderful home....warm, inviting, well equipped and conveniently located. Sasha (property manager) was very accessible and so flexible and accommodating. The house location worked out great as the groom's family also rented a house through Sasha just down the road. We were able to get an Uber easily to Temecula Old Town for rehearsal dinner. Sasha took the time to put wine and flower petals on the bed of the newlyweds also. My only regret is that we didn't stay long enough to just relax and enjoy all the amenities. We are already talking about planning a longer trip for family again. Thank you!

Comfy Tuscan Home!

  • 5 of 5

The Tuscan style and comfy feel of this home will transport you to the vineyard countryside of Italy! Huge master with ensuite is gorgeous. The guest casita is perfect for additional guest accommodations. And there's a wine tasting room steps outside the front door with delicious wines to experience. This is our 2nd time of reserving this home. Our friends and family raved about their stay! It's a Fallbrook jewel.

What a hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect accommodation for our executive board group! Comfortable, clean, quality furnishings and well stocked kitchen with all the basics you need for eating and cooking. Having the restaurant, bar and deck of Pala Mesa Resort within walking distance was another plus. The winery tasting room is another treat to have on site. Perfect spot! Sasha was wonderful at coordinating everything for our stay. We will be renting this home again in September for family & friends who will attending our anniversary reunion celebration. Highly recommend!

Stunning property. Perfect for a family gathering.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a rehearsal dinner/Thanksgiving gathering. It was perfect in every way. It is private with awesome views and a hiking trail steps away. Sascha the property manager was a huge help in planning our party and providing extra tables and chairs. Our guests got a round of golf in on Thanksgiving morning and hiking after the meal. There was plenty of room to spread out both inside and outside the property. We really enjoyed the bocci court. The pool is not heated but that did not stop our 6 year old . (We grow 'em tough in Ohio! )The flowering azaleas, roses, tangerine trees, and humming birds were just a bonus to our magical time here.

Very accommodating and beautiful. We felt like we were in a high end resort. Sasha was wonderful and very friendly which made it more special. It was so convenient to the resort for our neice's wedding. The casino and shopping is very convenient. We toured it with our family in the area and they are looking at staying in the future. Thank you for the awesome memories👍👍👍👍👍 Ray n Theresa Gonzales

Small party

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the winery. We rented it for a small party (16 people), and some of our friends stayed overnight as did we (2 nights). The views are great, he rooms well equipped and appointed, and it's a real bonus having the winery and tasting room on the property. Our friends all loved the place and would all consider renting it as well. Sasha, the manager, was very personable, and we felt well taken care of, including the free miniconcert she have at the tastin room Saturday afternoon. We were looking for a romantic weekend and an original venue for an anniversary party, and this place worked out very well. An additional bonus: having the resort down the hill. We had breakfast there.
