41165 Rope Road
Panoramic Southern View
Just east of Temecula’s Wine Country and down a two-mile dirt road is your nearly 10-acre private retreat. Enjoy country living in the wide open spaces of the west. This little slice of paradise is nestled among the Black Hills in Riverside County in Sage. This area is where the cities of Hemet, Aguanga and Temecula all come together. Shopping and other errands are done in the City of Temecula. Your school district is Hemet Unified and the elementary school is the quaint Cottonwood Elementary School located in Aguanga, CA. Cottonwood Elementary boasts an API score of 895 and serves approximately 270 students across grades Kindergarten through 8th. The school first opened in 1897 and the original one-room schoolhouse still stands today and was last used as a classroom in 1975. It is still used today for school fundraisers and other school activities.
Escape the stress of the city and wake up to the aroma of fresh coffee and enjoy a sunrise of brilliant colors blazing across a huge southwestern sky. The morning commute here consists of gathering up your favorite horse, packing your saddle bags and heading out through miles of roads and trails with scenic mountain views and the blue waters of Vail Lake. Connect with nature as you watch the hawks fly and the bunnies scatter through the sagebrush. Listen to the owls hunt at night with their clicking noises and hear the coyote howl in the night. See stars like you’ve never seen before while the Milky Way hovers above and shooting stars make the fourth of July pale in comparison during the Geminides. This is truly a private retreat where you can have large outdoor gatherings without whimpering neighbors. This property is best suited for those who want an active outdoor lifestyle.
Situated on gently to rolling ground, the well-kept 3 bedroom/2 bath manufactured home is nestled among tall shade trees. The home has an open floor plan with vaulted ceilings and a fireplace in the living room. The kitchen is part of a great room allowing together-time for the family. There are French Doors in the family room leading to a wood deck where you can sit, relax and watch your livestock play in their paddocks. Out front is a covered patio where you can watch the kids roll in the grass and chase each other through the trees. A three-car garage is accessible out back by a breezeway and with almost 10-acres of ground, there’s plenty of room for all your favorite toys!
Fenced on three sides and cross-fenced throughout, the property is well laid out. The driveway sits on Rope Road which is the southern boundary of the parcel. There are also two one and a half acre paddocks bordering Rope Road. North of the paddocks is the full-size arena and five large corrals which follow the curve of the road to the hay barn and tack room. The house sits close to the back of the property on the unfenced northern boundary. On the western edge of the property are two large corrals and an open area currently being used to store items that will go with the owners to their new property in Utah.
The utilities for the property are well, septic and electric. When the owner’s built this property there was an incentive for them to go all-electric and so they chose to forego the option of propane for their heating source. Their electric bills have been surprisingly low over the twenty-two years they’ve been there and they’re happy to share this information with you. The well has been good to them providing water for them and their livestock all this time at an average rate of 12 gallons per minute. Of course, you are welcome to get a well-certification on the property. If you are seeking FHA financing, this home will have to have its permanent foundation recorded for a certified 433A foundation. The septic has been recently serviced and will be pumped prior to close.
As a point of reference, Los Angeles is two hours west of the ranch should you decide to hit Hollywood and go see the other kind of stars. Camp Pendleton is about an hour west, as is the beach in Oceanside. If you want to take the kids to Disneyland or Sea World each are about an hour and a half. As to all the local stuff you need; the post office, the mall and all the big-box stores are about a thirty minute run into town. Good news! The wineries are a bit closer and you can get Temecula’s Wine Trail in about 15-minutes. From there you will have a fine selection of wineries to choose from. There are a host of venues for wine tasting, fine dining and world class resorts and spas. Temecula’s Wine Country has fast become a well-sought destination for travelers from around the world.
