About 489 Mountain Dr

El Rancho Hacienda. Originally built in the mid 1940's, this enclave of 7 individual adobe casitas began life as the rural Southern California equivalent of the traditional in-town bungalow complex, albeit on a 5 acre parcel. In the mid 1970's, a group of friends pooled their money and approached the owner at the time about purchasing the property. The owner agreed, and the rest is history. What began as a handshake agreement among partners has evolved into it's current iteration, a Tenancy in Common, with many similarities to the typical Planned Unit Development. 489 Mountain is now available, for the first time since the property was purchased from the original owner in the 1970's. This sweet southwestern adobe home features Mexican tiled floors, soaring beamed ceilings, three fireplaces, and a flexible floorplan that can be enjoyed numerous different ways. Currently it is configured as a two bedroom, one bathroom home with an attached one bedroom, one bathroom guest suite. Several minor changes would allow it to be used as a three bedroom, two bath home. The indoor/outdoor patios and grounds are mesmerizing with a botanical garden feeling and an away-from-it-all setting. The large lot is meticulously landscaped, and could be further enhanced with vegetable gardens or additional fruit trees. One must see to truly appreciate.
