The Mesa Grande, the name tells the story of big mountains, valleys, and mesas. It has been quietly known by San Diegans for a hundred plus years. This area is home to some large cattle ranches run by families. These areas are considered “lifestyle” areas as there is much land, and you can have most animals without many restrictions. Mesa Grande is an area with few words to express the beauty, light, and shadows of the hills dotted with famously spectacular Oaks that make the most breathtaking vistas at Sunset. Parts of Mesa Grande offer panoramic views across Warner Springs, Santa Ysabel Ranch, Lake Henshaw, and Palomar Mountain. It boasts pleasant drives, Indian Reservations, and mines of tourmaline, topaz, and beryl. Delicious cherries, apples, grapes, and other fruits grow in abundance in Mesa Grande. Most properties are larger, some equaling thousands of acres.
