Road Trip - Fallbrook and the Gas Lamp District of San Diego


Today we got up early for two re keying jobs...the first was in Fallbrook Ca..a lovely small town with avocado groves and lots of hills. We drove up a very windy narrow steep road to the top of one of the hills...the home was very nice..not too large...with wonderful views of the valley below...



I especially liked the cute medicine cabinet in one of the bathrooms..so snapped a photo....



 below the house, was a large pool and a patio area with a great fire pit..below that was a place to keep horses.....all in all a very nice place..although we both agreed it was too isolated for us....you'd have to drive miles to just get a gallon of milk...

across from this house and acreage was another far grander house..we immediately named it "The Castle"
It stands out on the edge of a cliff, and you can see it from any point in the valley below....



The second re keying was in the Gas Lamp District in Downtown San Diego...quite a contrast, busy city streets.

The loft was on the 4th floor, had a view of nightlife, coffee houses (we stopped downstairs at the Starbucks...I got a iced pumpkin spice latte, yum!) the loft was very spacious, just one upstairs bedroom area, a large living room/kitchen and a bath with stacked washer and dryer...its close to the harbor, the zoo, the stadium, and of course, lots of shopping......


Here is the NBC building and the AT&T building on the left....

both of these homes, one in the country and one in the city were both in escrow and will close sometime this week....if you had your choice, where would you prefer to live?

oh, before I forget....if you're reading this and haven't signed up for my giveaway...there is still time...I will pick a name with the random number generator on the 30th....
