Escape to Provence right near Julian, with this private, tranquil setting in an orchard of apples, pears, plums, pomegranates, nectarines, and persimmons. A spacious, four-bedroom, three-and-one-half bath home overlooking the three peaks of the Cuyamaca Mountains sits in a Monet garden of daffodils, tulips, peonies, lilacs, and every color iris you have ever seen. Leave a few cherries for the blue jays or munch on perfectly ripe apricots, or next month's peaches.
For an all organic lunch, you may want to check with the gardener about the corn or tomatoes. If the winter greens are gone, there would be zucchini or eggplant to throw on the grill. Plan a dinner for your group under the grape arbor while watching the three peaks change into purple sunsets. Relax, walk, hike, bike, go fishing, visit the town of Julian or the desert.
When snow covers the plum blossoms, cozy up around the family room fireplace and check out one of the many games around.
This lovely 2-story home has everything!
The 3600 sq foot house sits on one acre of lovingly tended property. The landscape changes daily so it is impossible to predict what might be blooming or ripe in the gardens. There are fruit trees, pine and cedar trees, flowers, organic gardens and a beautiful mountain view. It is located on a private street in the Pine Hills area of Julian.
