This rare offering is located in the area of Wynola, a picturesque rural community bridging San Diego County’s favorite backcountry destination, Julian, and the cattle ranching community of Santa Ysabel. Featuring a quaint and thriving commercial village, Wynola is home to fine restaurants and lodging accommodations with wineries, art galleries, music, shopping and many family fun activities.
Ancient oaks and rock formations in the general area give this site privacy and character. The surrounding area is sparsely populated with custom homes and mountain ranches blending into a landscape of rolling hills and valleys. Wildlife is abundant in the area: deer and turkey, bobcats and fox roam freely, while raptors and other rare species of animals can still be found here because of the abundance of water and cover in this rural area.
Agriculture and tourism are the dominant economic activities in the area. There are many recreational activities available, such as the California Riding and Hiking Trail and the Pacific Crest Trail for riding, golfing at Warner’s Ranch and Borrego Springs Resorts, hunting and fishing, dining, wine tasting along the nearby San Diego-Temecula wine country corridor, and a variety of other opportunities for each family member. The newly opened Santa Ysabel Open Space Preserve offers excellent riding trails connecting the Santa Ysabel, Wynola, and Julian communities. The famous Hale Observatory on Palomar Mountain is less than 45 minutes away.
