Once upon a time, a persnickity home buyer decided to compete with every model home in San Diego County. She felt she could improve on their offerings, and decided to create a real estate masterpiece of her own in lovely San Marcos, just north of San Diego.
Rose had a list of demands that had to be met–and they were all piled into one San Marcos home.
First of all, the lot for her proposed San Marcos home in Sage Canyon would have to be large enough to host the proverbial outdoor Greek wedding–and with enough room to discreetly park big toys such as RV’s, boats and jet skis. The property also had to be close to Twin Oaks Golf Course and near miles of hiking trails. Prestigious Sage Canyon provided precisely what she was seeking. The handpicked 20,000 square-foot lot offered the space Rose was seeking as well as a perfectly-designed 3200+ square foot home.
So with lot and location resolved, this determined and tasteful woman decided:
1. A magnificent flagstone entry with embedded lighting should lead to the entry door, which when opened, would reveal…
2. Flooring finished like fine furniture. Ordinary hardwood flooring would never do. This decorator demanded cherry floors with a sheen that would rival museum quality furniture. And rising above this magnificent floor in the lovely living area is a…
3. Grand rock fireplace that was likely modeled after one found in a luxurious Aspen or Gstaad ski lodge. Located in a wing off the living area is…
4. The spacious downstairs master suite, which boasts a closet for the clothes horse and a large garden bath that invites spa retreats.
The gourmet kitchen, of course, has granite surfaces and upscale appliances. Upstairs is a roomy bonus room large enough to host a pool table, bar and various arcade games as well as three other bedrooms.
Rose never planned to move from this pristine, polished and recently-completed Sage Canyon masterpiece, but sometimes life has other plans. Family demands are calling her out of the area and she has priced her home to sell quickly at just $775,000, which is well below area comparables.
