24 Acres Panorama Trail For Sale

view 1  view 2

A few years ago I really had a wake-up call.  I was hosting a broker caravan for a nice listing in the city.  I always ask for suggestions to improve my marketing.  One of the agents attending said, “be sure to add that the home has a view”.  A view???  I looked at the group nodding in approval as I glanced out through the windows seeing other houses on the street.  They directed me to an area they thought was a ‘view’.

Guess we are just a little spoiled with our views from this mountain, aren’t we?   This one is a 360 with Lake Henshaw, a sliver of the ocean, rolling meadow, gorgeous oaks, the Observatory… all the wildflowers blooming now, and no other homes or even power poles blocking you view in any direction.

You have bragging rights being off the grid on this very beautiful 34 acres.  The well is in watering an orchard with fruit trees and berries.  Where would you build that dream home?  There is a map waiting for you and lots of photos.  Click and scroll down to Panorama Trail  More info real soon.

Meanwhile, let’s go take a look around!

Downed Trees and Chipping

IMG_2997     IMG_2999


This very beautiful, but wet, heavy snow took down a lot of trees and branches all around the mountain.  Lots of oak on the ground for firewood for the next couple winters for many folks. It was sad to see so many apple branches and entire apple trees on the ground.  Those trees are about 140 years old, I’m guessing so I think some folks will be doing some planting this year for the next generations to enjoy.

Chain saws will be humming for weeks as there is a lot of clean-up to do.  We counted seven trees down on our property so are right there with you.  There is so much clean up to deal with that some people will make burn piles. Click burn permit info.

Free chipping available, too.  See flyer with details at the top of the Fire Safe Council webpage.

Need help?  Local Resources are listed here.

Do you live off the mountain?  I am glad to pop by and check your property. Just let me know.
