Real Estate Update

Wow!  So much going on with Mountain Real Estate these days!
Last week we closed a day early on that cute Tiny House on Conifer Road.  Two chimney sweeps yesterday, lots of tree and brush work being done on three properties for safety and insurance purposes, and an electrical update.  One home exterior is being painted, new siding on another plus a dowser, grading for a drilling rig and a well going in!

Several properties have had extensive easement situations worked out after many hours in front of the computer.  Property owners files are often the best first source, then even neighbor contact for old records.  We finishing up with surveyors and title companies to puzzle things out with great success lately.

This whirl-wind activity has all be woven around showings and new listing opportunities.  Running out now to post another ‘In Escrow’ sign.  Woo hoo!

Glad to get YOUR questions answered anytime.  It is always a pleasure to deal with real estate on this beautiful mountain.

Thank you ALL,

Million Dollar View

image1 Just a few weeks ago this San Diego Snow Man was seen by many on Channel 7 NBC’s social media, enjoying the million dollar view!  Click on the subject above to watch a fun video of the last snow from what could be your new driveway!  Here are some of the details, but you really need to come see this one!

Aren’t the views amazing above the clouds at this rim-of-the-world, custom crafted home on Palomar Mountain?!

The owners are so sorry to let it go.  He is a pilot, saw the property from the air, learned it was for sale and drove over from Yuma to make it their own.  They’d planned for this to be their forever home.  A job offer he couldn’t refuse came in from out of state, so it is YOUR turn to own this view!

The owners worked together on several projects to add their signature.  One is radiant heat on the stairs, master bedroom and sitting area.  Such a comfortable heat using an on-demand hot water system, laid under beautiful bamboo flooring.  They have a library area waiting for you that is optional and added a security system.

This is the ‘icing on the cake’ after the extensive remodel the prior owners orchestrated a few years ago.  Cement Hardie Plank siding, was installed on the home and finished garage, all new windows and new 40 year roof.  The interior has beautiful custom wood touches throughout with the mountain-made, quarter sawn, white oak cabinets and wainscot, artistic tile work and everything ‘top-of-the-line. You’ll just have to see!

Some painting is in the works and then we’ll have a pro come in with a camera for new photos.  I do happen to have a key!  Here are lots more photos.  When would you like your tour?
