About the property

Large 3 bedroom, 3 full bath gated single family house with amazing mountain views located off a private road on a 2+ acre lot on the hills in beautiful Fallbrook! Idyllic and rustic surroundings with hills, avocado trees and singing birds; yet with easy access to major highways (about 1.5 mile off highway I-15 and ~4 miles off highway 76), the beaches of San Diego, the Temecula wine country, as well as the famous Pala Casino Resort & Spa nearby.

The home was built in 1990 and completely updated throughout by the current owners at the end of 2014. Features hardwood floors in the living areas and bedrooms, and travertine tile floors in the kitchen and bathrooms. Total living area is approximately 3,000 square feet.

The single story Spanish style home features a large kitchen, adjacent casual dining area with a large picture window capturing the amazing mountain views; a large family room with exposed beam cathedral ceiling and a beautiful stone fireplace; a large living room with a beautiful stone fireplace and a baby grand piano; and a laundry room with state of the art washer and dryer. The spacious master bedroom has a king bed, a large picture window also capturing the amazing mountain views, and a large private luxury master bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub and a frameless shower all surrounded by beautiful travertine tiles. The second bedroom also has a king bed, and shares a luxury full bathroom with the third bedroom, which has 2 full-size beds. There are also 4 sleeper sofas, three of which have queen-size pull-out beds and one of which has a full-size pull-out bed in the family room and the living room. All bed sheets are of high quality with at least 400 thread count. There is also a separate 3rd luxury full bathroom with a claw-foot tub and a frameless shower, located next to the family room. The kitchen features new maple cabinets, granite counter tops, copper sink and new high end stainless steel GE Profile appliances including a 36 inch induction stove and a wine cooler.

There is a 70 inch TV in the family room with cable TV and Netflix as well as a Blueray player. The master bedroom has a 48 inch 3D TV with cable, Netflix and a Blueray player. The luxury master bathroom has a 40 inch smart TV with Netflix. The other two guest bedrooms have 50 inch and 40 inch TVs respectively with Netflix and a BlueRay player.

The house has an amazing view of the rolling mountains and hills of Fallbrook and its vicinity in the backyard. The covered patio in the back can be accessed through the living room, the family room and the kitchen. The covered patio has stylish wicker lounge chairs, a conversation set and a dining set. A propane grill is also available in the side yard. As the house is completely surrounded by next door neighbors with similarly large lots (1+ acres), the back yard and side yards are very private.

The house is gated with plenty of parking in front of the house, which is situated securely behind the iron gate.

Please note that the three car garage is not available to our guests, and the owners occasionally stay in a separate quarter of the house accessed through the garage.

Close to wineries (both Temecula Wine Country and Fallbrook wineries}, casino (Pala Casino Resort & Spa), zoos (San Diego Safari Zoo Park in Escondido and Wild Wonders in Bonsall), theme parks, ocean and more! Local wildlife includes hawks, owls, humming birds, coyotes and quail. Fallbrook’s weather is among the finest on the planet at any time of the year. You will love this spot in summer or winter, the average temperature is 70 degrees throughout the year. This really is the place to be!

Great Property for a quiet secluded getaway

  • 5 of 5

Rooms were spacious, elegantly designed and bathrooms were very modern. The home is very spacious with a great view of the hills and valleys. It was very quiet/secluded area, although we did play music after hours, we felt like the whole valley/estate was ours (feels like we were staying at one of the wings of hearst castle imho). There's a nice formal dining room for a good sit down dinner and the kitchen is stocked with all the cutlery, pots and pans that you would need for a nice dinner at home. The BBQ on the patio was a plus as well.

Plenty of Parking as well, we had enough space for 4 cars.

Nice property to get away from the city and relax and unwind. Thank you Mike for the hospitality! We hope to do it again next year!

Beautiful views with large open spaces. Very family friendly.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay could not have been more relaxing. The home is beautiful with large open living spaces so those wanting some quiet time were able to rest without being disturbed. Gorgeous weather considering the minus 5 degrees we were having at home with beautiful views! Since we were there close to Christmas, the kitchen worked well for a day of holiday baking. We had aging parents with mobility and fall risk concerns and they were able to navigate the same level space with ease. The piano was a plus!!

Beautiful house with minor issues

  • 4 of 5

My in-laws came to visit from Hawaii to celebrate my husband's college graduation so we rented this house as place for us all to stay (our apartment is nowhere near big enough). This house fit our needs since it is quite spacious. The view from the back yard was amazing and it felt like we were somewhere far removed from San Diego. The only downsides to the house were the critters (to be expected while in a mountainous region but I hadn't anticipated them) and the bed frame in the master bedroom broke in the middle of the first night we were staying there. It was poorly constructed and I'm surprised it didn't break instantly. We slept for the rest of the stay with the mattress on the floor which wasn't ideal but the property manager said he couldn't do anything about the bed until after our stay was over. All in all our stay was a good one and my in-laws were happy which is all that really matters.

Owner's Response: Dear Tracy- I am glad that you had a good stay. I am sorry that the bed frame broke during your stay and that we were not able to fix it while you were here. We have installed a new bed frame so there will not be any similar issues in the future. We are also hiring a pest control service to take care of the critter issues. Thanks again for staying with us. Sincerely, Mike
