Property Description

A riparian setting among stately oak trees, a private lane leads you to a rare historical home as well as a separate guest house w/private entry, a soaring ceiling and floor to ceiling windows that look out to a breathtaking view of Bernardo Mnt. On over 1.5 acres, the compound is full of character and charm. With 4 Bdrms/4 Ba total, modern updated kitchen w/soapstone counters, great room centered around a La Cresta stone fireplace, study, dining room w/floor to ceiling windows and extra large TV room.
Situated on 1.52 acres at the base of Bernardo Mountain and .5 mi from HWY 15, this 1930’s era home was originally the servants’ quarters for author Harold Bell Wright, a best selling American writer of the first part of the 20th century. He named his ranch “Quiet Hills”. The property is next to the San Dieguito River Park with 55 miles of hiking trails. Remodeled and enlarged in the 1970s to the present time. Architects John Aldrich and James Hubble both had hands in the remodel. It has a separate guest house with a loft, new kitchen, full bathroom, and pool. The 2 homes boast a warm cedar interior and exterior with solid oak floors and mahogany trim and doors in the main house. There is a “root cellar" on the property, some may want to use as a possible wine cellar in the future. Many mature fruit trees: plum, cherry guava, Mexican guava, navel orange, blood orange, kumquat, feijoa, 2 lemon, Mexican lime, pomegranate, fig, loquat and dragon fruit. The landscape is mostly drought tolerant native vegetation with many large old oaks. The main house is 4BR with 3 full bathrooms plus an outdoor shower. The kitchen was remodeled in 2008. It has a (study), a living room with a large beautiful La Cresta rock fireplace, and a tv room. This beautiful property is a peaceful refuge on a private easement road.
