Welcome to this historic home, originally built and occupied by the late Bob Allen, designer of the legendary Howdy Doody puppet and one of the original founders of MGM Cartoon Studios. Currently a highly sought after short term rental that can accommodate parties of up to 16. As you step into the house, you are greeted by a warm and inviting living area, featuring a wood burning fireplace, and vintage furnishings and decor. Originally designed as a one room weekend getaway cabin, the home has been lovingly added on to over the years and now features 4 bedrooms and 4 1/2 baths with ~2,939 Sq. Ft. Situated on 2.72 park like acres in Pine Hills where deer and turkey frequently visit and the opportunity to experience the four seasons. The property is a secluded retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life, yet a short 10-minute drive to historic Main St Julian with charming boutiques, restaurants, and breweries. Not to mention the apple pie shops, vineyards, cideries and budding music scene. 20 minutes from Boating and Fishing at Lake Cuyamaca and minutes to over a dozen of the top hiking trails in the Julian area, 40 minutes to the Anza Borrego Desert and only an hour and 15 minutes to San Diego city center. Enjoy the peace and tranquility of country living without sacrificing any modern conveniences.. While the home is perfectly situated as a full-time residence, there is no denying that the property’s historic charm allows it to continue as a successful short-term rental.
