blog Special Homes Deserve Special Attention - edited

Set on a golf course lot in the Mountain View Country Club community, this exceptional La Quinta home is presented by Lance Frank and the Preferred Properties Division of Tarbell, Realtors.  The immaculate home is a luxurious haven overlooking the 7th fairway and magnificent southeast mountain views.  This Santolina model may be the only one built with its unique floor plan.  An entertainer’s dream from the spacious interior to the custom pool and patio, it captures the most desirable elements of desert living.

Approximately 3,368 square feet encompasses three bedrooms and three-and-one-half baths. 

The single-story home features large windows and glass sliders that frame the views and flood the home with natural light.  The master suite opens to a covered patio and sunny pool deck.  There is a huge walk-in closet in the spa-like master bath, and the jetted tub, glass block shower, and double vanity are clad in marble.  Double doors in the master bedroom lead to the home office and on into the main living space.  Both of the comfortable, generously proportioned guest bedrooms- including the attached casita- feature en suite baths and private entrances.


The formal entry frames a view straight through to the golf course and reveals a palatial living area with polished travertine floors and high trey ceilings.  An inviting gas log fireplace and a wet bar make it ideal for entertaining.  Multiple dining areas include the elegant formal dining room, a game table area alongside the wet bar, and a breakfast nook.  The versatile, free-flowing floor plan allows the lucky homeowners to adapt the flexible layout to suit their own needs.


Granite kitchen counters, a center island, and a chef’s desk in the gourmet kitchen will delight the chef.  The kitchen is as hard working as it is beautiful, with built-in stainless steel appliances that include the refrigerator, double ovens, and a five-burner gas cooktop.  Gleaming wood cabinetry provides ample storage.

Among the amenities: plantation shutters, ceiling fans, recessed lighting, carpeted bedrooms, and direct access to the three-car garage.  A notable upgrade is the entirely  new  and top-of-the-line  HVAC system.


The backyard is an irresistible oasis.  The heated, saltwater pool features a pebble-bottom finish and swim-up steps, impressive stacked stone spillways and sheer descent waterfalls, and an elevated spa wrapped in stone.  For outdoor entertaining, the private patio includes a built-in barbecue center with bar seating and a refrigerator. Impressive fairway and mountain views, swaying palms, and mature landscaping add to the appeal.

Mark Ferguson and Bob Manuele are proud to present a fantastic Yorba Linda home from the Preferred Properties Division of Tarbell, Realtors.  Set in a secluded equestrian neighborhood with just eleven homes, this Estates Collection listing features a handsome ranch-style home, a large, permitted addition, and over one-half acre of usable land with a view to the foothills.

Approximately 2,459 square feet includes four bedrooms and two-and-one-half baths. 




The single-story floor plan has recently undergone extensive renovations, with beautiful upgrades throughout.  The serene master suite features a balcony, a walk-in closet, and a spa-like bath with a separate vanity area, a large walk-in shower, and crisp white cabinetry topped with flawless glass and a pair of vessel sinks.  Comfortable guest bedrooms have large closets, and the hall bath features a contemporary dual-basin vanity and a tub/shower combo enclosed with sliding doors.


The enviable kitchen offers stainless steel appliances, gleaming granite counters, a breakfast bar, and creamy white cabinetry.  A sliding glass door in the adjacent dining room provides access to a wonderful party balcony and floods the spaces with natural light.  The dining room and the formal living room both offer inviting fireplaces.  Double French doors lead to a spacious bonus room with big windows and a separate entrance.


The amazing addition adds approximately 591 square feet and encompasses a storage area and two very large rooms that are ready to serve as needed- imagine a private wine cellar, home theater, fitness studio, game room, music center, etc.  Updates and upgrades throughout the home include newer windows, sliders, and interior doors; tasteful ceiling fans and lighting fixtures; fresh paint, flooring, and millwork; and replacement of all outlets and switches.


Curb appeal is delivered by the fresh, clean appearance of the home with its inviting double-door entry, professional landscaping, lush green lawn, and updated doors on the three-car garage.  In the backyard, the property is designed for fun.  A staircase leads from the large covered balcony down to the sunny Trex deck surrounding the sparkling pool.  A broad grassy area can easily host games of volleyball, football, or soccer.  Extra features include automatic lighting and irrigation and a mature orchard with citrus trees.  The huge lot is zoned (R2) for up to four horses, and can even accommodate the addition of a second home.

Nearby community landmarks include the El Cajon Train and the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum.
