5 ACRES - 2 Bedroom Home with Pool, Creek, Vast Mountain and Valley View, Easy Access at 2,100 ft.
As soon as you walk into this home you know you are in for a special treat. You can see right
through the main living area to a beautiful view of the mountains and the ocean, and at 2100
feet above sea level you can feel the welcome difference in temperature. The house is set in a
private space surrounded by lush, colorful landscaping and forest with a creek on one side, but
just 5 minutes from a paved highway; the access is super easy but the feeling of separation
from road and other modern noises is complete.
The living area is indoor/outdoor. A large kitchen with plenty of counter space, storage and
appliances provides the work area you need to prepare meals, snacks and cocktails just for you
or for a whole group of friends. There is a low decorative wall providing a bit of separation from
the rest of the living/dining area so you can even create a surprise without anyone noticing!
The rest of the open living space is nicely furnished for watching TV, reading a book or having
fun with guests. There is even a fireplace that offers a cheerful glow on those evenings when
the fog creeps up the valley or rain is chilling the valley. Windows and glass doors open onto a
big patio where you just might do most of your living and entertaining. It transitions into the
pool deck and an infinity pool whose outer edge truly gives you the impression of a progression
to an infinite view.
The guest bedroom is downstairs. The master suite takes up the whole second floor with a large
bedroom that has plenty of room for a king-size bed, tables, a desk for a workspace, a big walk
in closet, a bathroom where you have natural light and space, and a big deck looking out over
the view in front of you.
There are two obvious, just-right spaces beside the house where you could easily add another
master suite that would blend well with the home and share the same beautiful views. Your
agent can help you visualize that if it's something you'd want to consider.
Whether from the master bedroom deck upstairs or the pool deck downstairs, you won't ever
tire of the changing clouds, shadows, and lighting in the valley and on the sides of the
mountains. Nor will you ever quit taking pictures of the sunsets when the flaming red ball
disappears into the ocean. It's a space to restore your soul and fill all of your senses. And at the
risk of saying it too often: being at 2100 feet makes it all more comfortable and enjoyable with
all the windows and doors open and no need for A/C.
There are mature fruit trees on the property, as well as a path with concrete steps leading
down to the stream/waterfall that forms one border of the property. The current owner starts
her day with a walk down to the stream, then hikes back up and plunges into the pool for a few
laps. Between the forest bathing and the pool swim, it centers you and starts you off focusing
on beauty and tranquility.
Clearly, the pictures don't do it justice. Come see for yourself. You'll be surprised at how quickly
you can get to the beaches or San Isidro from the house--it's just about equidistant to the two.
