Love the city for its employment opportunities, culture, and access to services but crave the wide open spaces, peace, quiet, and tranquility of the country?? How about the best of all worlds. It's time to call Descanso "Home"!! Descanso is that country town close to all. You will feel the pressure and tension of everyday life melt away as you get closer to home. And once you get home, why not own one of the true jewels of Descanso. 9846 Mizpah Lane! You might as well memorize this address because once you see it you will be compelled to write an offer before someone else does. Head up to the top of Mizpah Ln. You can't see your kingdom from the bottom! Ease down your paved concrete driveway past the Afghan Pines, (drought and wind tolerant), to your 3.5 acre paradise. You can park in or out of your large 3 car+ garage with terrazzo flooring. As if 3.5 acres is not enough the northern border of your property straddles Cuyamaca Rancho State Park. That's like adding 26,000 acres of Pine, Fir, and, Oak forests. If you're into hiking, biking, horseback riding or just sitting back with a fine glass of wine enjoying the view, there is no better place to be. As wonderful as these mountain views are you will be stunned by the beauty of this home and surrounding landscape. This 2800+sq foot, single level home is a treasure chest of surprises. Lets start with the EXTRAS: 23 panel solar system generating 30 to 40 KWH per day recently installed with 14K/v standby generator for seamless transfer of power in case of commercial power loss. 3 tier drainage with french drains moving water safely away from the property. 16 GPM well with 10,000 gallon holding tank. Fully automatic irrigation. From the moment you walk through the front door the details jump out: open flowing floorplan, bullnose corners, faux plaster texture on walls, soaring vaulted ceilings, arched entryways, and the amazing floors that have the look of re-purposed barn wood. As you pass the formal living room and dining room you will be drawn to the main gathering area at the center of the house. The great room here includes the gourmet chef inspired kitchen with stainless steel appliances including convection/microwave oven, large propane gas stove/range, trash compactor, dishwasher, and side by side refrigerator, family room with dramatic stone fireplace that includes a wood burning stove insert that circulates air to efficiently heat the home. Also in this space is a great dining nook with amazing views to the north and west. Walk out the french doors here to an outdoor living space that expands the sq footage of this home well beyond 2800. A large rustic arbor extends across the back of the home shading a fantastic paver patio and creating spaces for relaxation around the fire pit, eating around the BBQ, and you won't want to miss the soothing sounds of a cascading water fall into the Koi pond. Beyond the pond is a natural rock outcropping that double as the hot tub grotto. Indoor/outdoor living...only southern CAL. Back in the house extra wide hallways lead toward the 4 bedrooms. On the left you pass the first bedroom now being used as an office. You might want to use it as a gym, hobby room, playroom, or even a bedroom if you need it. Note all the storage as you make your way toward the Master. Finally on the right is your huge Master Suite. This is your get-away within your get-away. Not only large enough for any Cal King sized bed but has sq footage left for a seating area to enjoy the sights and sounds out the second set of french doors. For those romantic nights there is an electronically controlled gas fireplace open to both the bedroom area and the raised spa/tub area of the master bathrm where you will enjoy separate shower area, dual sinks and extra-large walk-in closet. Beyond here are two more bedrooms set up jack and jill style on either side of bathroom #3. At the end of the hall is a full size laundry room with more storage. Central air/heat and more.....
