About the Property

Luxurious 4 Bedroom 5 Bath Comfy Non-Smoking Home On 8 Mountain Top Acres.

The weather is fine in San Diego! Located just 5 miles from the I-15 freeway; a short drive up a country road to the top of the mountain to get away from the city noise. Centrally located to all San Diego has to offer, beaches, the World famous Zoo, Legoland, even Disneyland is only 1 1/2 hours away. Safari Park is a 15 minute drive. This is horse and wine country as the avocado groves disappear and vineyards are sprouting everywhere. There is a nearby winery that serves authentic Italian food. The home is 4 bedroom 5 bath and sleeps 8. Over 4000 square feet of comfort and entertainment. Our waterfall spool (small pool) overlooks the valley and has a nice large BBQ/Bar area with sun room and TV. Inside is a pool table and 60 ' wide screen TV. The kitchen is extra large with stove/oven microwave refrigerator and warming drawer. The table that seats 12 and a breakfast bar for casual dining. All bedrooms have queen beds with private baths and a view. There is a separate guest bath and also a separate laundry room. The grounds are lovely and the setting is peaceful for your relaxing family vacation. Comes with chickens that are not laying eggs, maybe you can help. Our rates are cheaper than 2 hotel rooms, your family will be very comfortable with many amenities not available at hotels or many resorts.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We are retired and enjoying traveling in our motorhome. We live close by at a retirement golf community and love to spend time with our grandchildren. Opening up our home to guests has been a fun retirement adventure, we have met so many nice families and truly enjoy managing our own property. Please come for a visit soon. One sad note....our dear friend Buddy (our lab) passed away in November 2016, thanks to all who loved him well.

Why the Owner Chose Escondido, CA, USA:
This is a dream home because it is quiet and relaxing with incredible views and open space. We love the country but can be at the 3 story indoor mall, golfing, bowling or a restaurant within 15 minutes!

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Look out over the valley from the back patio or enjoy a dip in the spool to cool off. Challenge your family to a game of pool, ping pong or push your kids on the swing. No reason to leave to have a good time but all attractions are within an hour drive. You can be shopping at a very large indoor mall in 15 minutes! If you don't feel like cooking walk across the street to the winery and let them serve you and enjoy their beautiful outdoor patio and wood fire pizza! There are many nearby golf courses, movie theaters and entertainment opportunities that San Diego has to offer. We are 45 minutes from downtown San Diego. We have a large play structure for the kids and a 9 hole putting green with sand trap! Play bocce ball, ping pong or corn hole. Lots to do, or do nothing, read a book on the patio and admire the views to the ocean. Enjoy the peace and quiet of the country.
