All on 8.5 fenced, usable acres under the oaks in Ranchita!

With approximately 120 oak trees on the property, you have an unusually beautiful ambiance for Ranchita. The way the land is tucked in the shelter of the mountain side, there is a cooling breeze in the summertime that comes through but not near as windy as some of the areas. The property is about 1/4 mile off the main road with paved access to the main entrance. The land is level to gently rolling with native sage and oaks. It is fully fenced with white vinyl fencing and has a water storage tank with a stand pipe for the Fire Department. Do you like to garden? The zucchini should be ready soon!

The land could have many uses and would be ideal for horses or 4-H projects. It is very level, usable, has lots of extra parking and room inside or out of the shop for most RV's, your boat or desert toys.  There are lots of options for a barn, arena, or corrals. With the Pacific Crest Trail close by, you can literally hike or ride your horse all the way from Mexico to Canada.

Home & Gazebo

The main house is a 1985 manufactured home of 1584 esf with 3 bedrooms and two baths on a permanent foundation system. You step out from the entry or the master bedroom to an extensive redwood deck with wrought iron railing and an inviting ten person spa.

There is also a covered patio area with a slab off the back of the home that could be used as a carport.  There is a chain link fence around the home for pets or small children.

You enter the home to a great room with vaulted ceilings and a fireplace complete with built-in blower. This is open to the kitchen and dining area.

Last summer the kitchen was remodeled with  new cabinets, counters, all appliances and
fixtures and flooring--it's just like new! 

The cabinet on the left is built-in and was designed as a china cabinet. It is presently used in an area remodeled as an office.

Propane forced air heat. New doors and electrical switches throughout. New water heater in spring of last year.
The bathroom to the left was remodeled summer of 2000.

The laundry room to the left has lots of
storage, good counter space and room for a freezer or extra frig.  The master bedroom to the far right is large with two huge walk-in closets.

The gazebo adds a lot of charm. You cross the bridge from the deck of the home. It takes you to a small barn and tack room with a cement floor. There is a stable area with a chicken coop, pig pen setup and also a metal hay shed. There is also a fenced pasture with barbed wire for horses or cattle.

The photo on the right was taken from inside the gazebo where you see the can lights used for evening parties which make it very nice for entertaining!

Workshop A real bonus to the property is the 1200 esf garage workshop. The walk-up loft provides extra storage with rooms below where one is plumbed in the wall for a bathroom.

The skylight panels allow you to work on your projects with natural light. The cement floor has a coating that gives an easy-care finish for clean up.

The office is carpeted and there is plenty of cabinet and workspace with great lighting and power.

What would YOUR plans include?

Inside parking for your RV, boat, or desert toys?

Extra storage for those 4-H projects for the kids?

Room for the hobbies you've dreamed of 
but never had the space for?

An easy commute just a few steps from your front door for your home-based business to spread out and grow?

The choice is up to YOU!

Charming Cottage  One of Ranchita's early homes has been lovingly remodeled and preserved for future generations. Approx 600 sf with original knotty pine and windows, add a lot of character.

The kitchen was brand new last
summer along with Berber carpet and  new flooring.

New cabinets, appliances, counter tops, and sink. There is a laundry room off the kitchen with a utility sink and room for a freezer.

Two sleeping rooms shown below have a bathroom between that was also remodeled including a tub with shower.

Both homes had new roofs and were painted last summer with touchups in July 2005. Ready to move right in!

This could perhaps be a good investment property since there are so few rentals available in the back country. The present owner has had both of these homes as rentals. The main home was rented for $1300.00 a month and the smaller home was rented for $900.00 per month. These rentals were basically only for the fenced areas around the homes and both excluded the use of the workshop which the owners kept for their personal use. There is also a demand for the rental of the shop with the draw of the Anza Borrego Desert State Park so close. With the building of the new Santa Ysabel Casino that is in the works, the rental demand should be even greater. The opportunities for this property are really varied.

Where to shop? The present owners did most of their shopping in Ramona which is a scenic, country drive (with no stoplights!) just 32 miles away. Borrego Springs is 17 miles. Pauma Valley and Valley Center both have small markets now, with a big shopping center in the works.

The Warner Springs Resort with their famous hot springs spas, pools, golf, tennis, horseback riding, restaurants, private airport, and much more, is about 12 minutes away.   

Warner Springs School is the pride of the community with Kindergarten through high school on the same campus. There is a Volunteer Fire Department, barbecues, and old fashioned picnics. It's a "step back in time" living in the back country, with an unusually relaxing lifestyle for this era, waiting for you in Ranchita.
