Building and Real Estate
Wynola Pizza & Bistro, a family operated restaurant, is part of two stand-alone buildings totalling 7200 ESF that sit on roughly 5+ acres of commercially-zoned real estate, three miles west of Julian, CA. The restaurant and bar building was decorated by local artists, including valuable custom pieces by internationally acclaimed artist James Hubbell. An additional 25+ acres of mixed residential-zoned property is immediately adjacent to the 5+ acres and creates an opportunity for further development and expansion.
Historic Destination in Southern California
The restaurant is located in the mountains of San Diego, considered “the drive in the country” by many San Diegans. The twisting, two-lane mountain roads are popular with car clubs, motorcycle enthusiasts, and recreational drivers, who spot the restaurant directly on their drives. Wynola Pizza & Bistro also benefits from its close proximity to Julian, a historic gold mining town, which is a 40-60 minute drive from the greater San Diego metropolitan area of 3.25+ million people and regularly draws large crowds from all over Southern California. The property is located just west of Julian at 4355 State Highway 78, the main route from San Diego, Orange County and Los Angeles County into Julian.
Location – Location – Location
Wynola Pizza & Bistro is located in the small town of Wynola, the gateway to Julian and the surrounding backcountry. Seasonal tourist activity peaks during Julian’s famous apple-picking season, usually from September to the first week of January. However, the area has year-round attractions from wintry snow days to extensive hiking, camping, and family events (e.g. Old Time Melodrama, Gold Rush Days, a 4th of July parade and the Grape Stomp, etc.) during the spring and summer months. Over the last decade, Wynola has emerged as its own destination with the presence of the Julian Hard Cider tasting room, Julian Farms, Fort Cross, Mom’s Pies, and Jeremy’s on the Hill. Wynola is the perfect place for additional restaurants, breweries, retail, and special events (weddings, festivals, and other family-friendly activities).
