Sage Mountain

SAGE MOUNTAIN is a private retreat-sized property, over 7 acres, with spectacular Pacific Ocean views at each of the 3 legal parcels contained within the property.

The main ridges are north/south with “nothing but sun” available to generate solar electricity almost 300 days per year.  Rainfall is about 16”, sprinkled throughout the year.  The Owner has accumulated the various parcels and former road frontage that comprise the entire property over a period of 17 years, and is now ready to retire.

CREST is an unincorporated community within the County of San Diego, with very easy access to U.S. Interstate 8, at Exit 20.  It is a 22- minute drive to downtown San Diego for ease of commuting.  San Diego has non-stop flights from London & Tokyo, and AeroMexico (at the nearby Tijuana airport) has the only west-coast non-stop to Shanghai.

A welcome addition to the community, the Crestridge Ecological Reserve of some 2600 acres and riding trails has recently been established by the California Department of Fish & Game and is immediately adjacent to this property in the north.   This Reserve includes a unique mushroom-shaped straw-bale construction information center design by San Diego’s most famous architect, James Hubbell .

The gated entrance to the property functions with a remote-controlled solar operated system, which also operates the motor for the sliding gate.  The extensive high-quality Cedar post and rail front fence is complemented with solar-light post caps that cast a pleasant glow after sunset.   

Sage Mountain has been nominated for an Orchid award in the San Diego Architectural Foundation's 2013 annual Orchids & Onions event.
