In late 2011 we purchased a fixer home with stunning lake views in Santa Ysabel. We started spending our weekends on the mountain while making improvements to the new home. As we became more familiar with the area and the neighbors we fell more in love with the tranquility of the back country. On our many weekends there, after working on the house we would often drive to the lake diner or to Julian for an evening out. Some of our favorite places/activities were dining at Jeremys on the Hill, eating Julian pie or just window shopping in the old mining town. Occasionally during the winter months we had the added excitement of light snow flurries and enjoyed cozying up by the fire as we watched the snow swirling over the valley and lake from our living room window. When another piece of property on the mountain became available we went to look. It was located a little further up the mountain, had some improvements (well, water tank and building sites) and had views even more beautiful than the house. We decided to purchase the land with the expectation of building our dream home where we would one day retire. As so often happens, life doesnt always follow the same path as our dreams. Our business has demanded much more of our time and has taken us closer to the coast. Retirement is not possible for us but we hope someone who has a similar dream and appreciation for the back country will.
