SAN DIEGO, CA – 2 Mar, 2017 - Local real estate team here in San Diego, YourSDHomes, has a 29-acre listing in North Poway that has unbelievable features and some dense history. This four bedroom, three and a half bathroom, custom home has a three car garage, detached workshop and separate two-bedroom guest suite sitting beside a beautiful pond.

The incredible property, 14755 Valleyview Road, is hitting the market today (March 2nd, 2017) for $2,899,000 with agent Cam Herndon. The buyers of this home will have everything from personal putting green to a reservoir, an olive orchard and so much more.

But the richness of history that comes with this San Diego home is the interesting part. The property’s roots are tied to the Homestead Act that took place in the late 1800’s in an effort to expand the development in the United States to the west side of the nation.

Originally signed into law by President Abraham Lincoln in 1862, the Homestead Act was made to stimulate Western migration by providing settlers with public land. Lucky for some, San Diego was one of those western destinations.

The original plan for this property when the Homestead Act was rocking and rolling was for the development of a peach orchard, which resulted in the terraced hills adjacent to the main home.

This historical development gave way to the current property owner to plant 400-plus olive trees along the terraced land. They are set up ideally to be drought resistant and low maintenance due to the spring fed rock-walled reservoir, built in the 1900s. It works as a natural source of irrigation for the orchard.  The property also uniquely features a 1,000-foot deep well.

The home is perfectly nestled in the rolling hills and valleys of Poway, California. Properties like this with such rich history, incredible privacy, and endless opportunities don’t come around often in San Diego. The current property owners kept the sprawling 29-acres groomed and in top shape. The people who score this property are hitting a San Diego lifestyle jackpot.
