This is a rare opportunity to own a San Diego home on 1/2 acre resting at the top of a private drive with hilly views, room for building a granny flat, but only 1/2 mile from Melrose restaurants, shops & businesses. It’s literally “Country in the City”, Located just off the 78 makes commuting up and down either I-5 or I-15 to Vista, Oceanside, Carlsbad or even downtown… a breeze! Offset your mortgage with a rental unit! Enjoy a summer evening beverage on a wooded private backyard deck after a swim in the covered pool area located just off the family room! Then come in to snuggel up to a cozy fireplace surrounded by a rustic stone mantle. Driftwood toned flooring & grey walls lend farmhouse charm. Keep your own chickens then cook their eggs in a granite covered kitchen with an open cozy dining area. So much potential & flexibility in this peaceful/conveniently located North San Diego homestead. Enjoy.
