Welcome to 17550 Bear Valley Lane, where the heartbeat of nature echoes through 117 acres (5 parcels) of prime San Diego backcountry! Nestled in the hills just above Escondido, this extraordinary ranch is not just a property; it's a canvas for your dream family compound, agricultural haven, and tranquil retreat. Three distinctive homes, each with its own charm, dot the landscape along with the potential for two or more potential home or ADU sites. The private gated entry opens a portal to tranquility, revealing a world where native coastal live oaks dance at the top of the Escondido Creek watershed. A 150-tree avocado grove and acres of ornamental eucalyptus add to this serene oasis. Picture this: quintessential San Diego backcountry, guarded by encircling ridges, accessible via a picturesque, bumpy country lane and only a mere 15-minute drive from the pulse of city living. Majestic oaks, including the rare Engelmann variety, create a living tapestry, a testament to the untouched beauty of nature. Explore the homes! The primary residence offers single-level living, boasting 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, expansive living areas, and 2,188 sqft of comfort. Additional homes include a charming 2-bed, 1-bath cabin with storage garage and laundry, and a 2-story, 1-bed, 1-bath farmhouse with a 300 sq ft attached workshop. Venture into agricultural aspirations with 26 fenced acres of prime farmland, ready to embrace your vision. The gravity-fed water system is supported by seven wells and two 10,000 gallon storage tanks. In addition, two 1000sqft greenhouse structures are ready to be restored and utilized. Your canvas, your masterpiece the potential here is boundless. A one-acre pond also harmonizes well with the main residence. The story deepens as you uncover the historical legacy of this pastoral haven. Once the home of Carnation Milk company's dairy operation and a mining claim from the 1880s, Bear Valley was named after the largest California grizzly bear ever recorded in the state. Beyond the eastern ridge lies the famed 22,000-acre Rancho Guejito. The main ranch-style residence features a spacious great room, a two-room master retreat, and a heated pool the perfect gathering spot for family retreats. From the cabin, enjoy the endless valley views down to Lake Wohlford, a haven for fishing enthusiasts. Bird enthusiasts, too, will find delight in the native raptors gracing the skies. While secluded in nature's embrace, Bear Valley is just a short drive from historic downtown Escondido, the renowned Bates Nut Farm, and only an hour north of downtown San Diego. Rural living meets city conveniences a perfect balance for those who crave both. Nature is calling, echoing through the rustling leaves and bubbling waters of Bear Valley. Will you answer the call to own this remarkable piece of natural splendor? Explore the visual journey and envision the legacy you'll create in this haven where city life and rural charm converge. #SanDiegoRealEstate #NatureRetreat #familycompond
