Elsie’s Lookout – 9 Acres For Sale

Peaceful, private beautiful views from the Mountain to the Sea, surrounded by oaks, cedar, firs and ferns. The grandmother of the present owner left an enchanting journal telling of her first visit to Palomar in 1904. It was a five day trip, made many times, as they came by wagon from Long Beach.

This is from Elsie’s pen:

“Remembering vividly as a girl in 1904, I realized that Palomar belonged to me from the first moment the wagon reached the crest. I ran through the woods to the edge and saw the worlds spread below in unutterable beauty. If it is commendable for a citizen to claim a city, proudly as it’s own, is it too outrageous that one should with passionate devotion, claim a mountain?”

This beautiful land looks out on what was Elsie’s over 100 years ago. Dust off your dreams and come up and make them come true. We’re looking for that special someone to claim these nine acres as your very own.

Of course, we have MLS info and more photos for you. You truly have to see this one for yourself. Come explore and walk the land. You’re invited to bring a picnic and enjoy the deck.

See you on the mountain top real soon!

Bonnie Phelps, enjoying so much sharing this Mountain!
