Nestled in the forest high above Lake Cuyamaca, this peaceful, private and casually luxurious residence offers a genuine escape from the city. More than 25 scenic acres surround the home, which is located in Julian’s exclusive gated enclave of Cuyamaca Forest Ranch. A gated driveway introduces the estate and leads to a main home, a guest cottage, two-car garage, hot tub, and an exceptionally rare swimming pool with pool house. The tranquil and quiet property is bathed in natural light that soothes the soul and.. awakens the senses, illuminating an onsite pond that often attracts wildlife, and a vast network of well-maintained trails that meander throughout the property. At the viewpoint, commanding lake, mountain and valley views are ever-changing seasonal changes and shimmering star-filled night skies. Within the main residence, friends and loved ones will enjoy socializing in a massive great room with clerestory windows, vaulted open-beam ceiling, a grand stone fireplace with raised hearth, a dining area and access to a spacious view deck. The open floor plan, which spans approximately 3,498 square feet including the cottage, lives like a one-level design, with the lower floor reserved exclusively for an oversized bonus room with a built-in media center, surround sound, a bath and a covered patio. This room can easily become an additional bedroom, and the main level offers the versatility of a home office with built-ins. Lake views lend enchantment to mealtime preparations in a kitchen with custom wood Shaker cabinetry, wood and tile countertops, a farmhouse sink, stainless steel appliances including a Viking cooktop, and a butler’s pantry with prep sink. Two ensuite bedrooms and three- and one-half baths are showcased in the main residence, including a primary suite with deck, walk-in closet, walk-in shower and a freestanding tub. The cottage hosts a private bedroom, a bath, laundry room and its own kitchen. A contemporary cabin aesthetic is embellished with wood flooring, hand-troweled walls, custom lighting, and vast window expanses that take full advantage of the property’s stunning views. Douglas fir trees were hand-selected from the owner’s property in Sonoma for use in this home’s construction, interior and exterior fire-suppression systems are featured, and the buildings, pool and ponds are fed by a high-output well that is located on the estate.
