OWN YOUR OWN PIECE OF IDYLLWILD HISTORY
Take a bite out of Idyllwild History in this beautiful Fern Valley home on an over
1-acre wooded setting including an extra lot, offering the privacy of your own
forest, yet walking distance to town and Fern Valley corners. Originally used as
a private lodge and school retreat, the property has been lovingly restored and
expanded to create a an equisite full-time home with master suite that includes a
bedroom, sitting room with wood burning stove, loft and a bath with with jacuzzi
tub. The lower level has a bedroom and a bath. A tiled cook’s kitchen opens into
the living area, warmed by a propane heated stove inserted into massive stonefaced hearth; a formal dining room for entertaining and a bath. Three levels of
floor to ceiling glass with window seating brings the outdoors in. Enjoy an afternoon sitting in the grape arbor watching the seasons unfold. There is a small
storage building that can be converted to a child’s play house or perhaps even a
guest house. There is one private drive leading down to a two-car garage and a
circular drive and the main entrance to the dwelling. Another drive leads to the
circular driveway past the extra lot. Extensive rock paths throughout and to the
rear of the property with a sunken stone firepit in the middle of a huge patio with
amphitheatre style seating to accomodate large gatherings. The setting conjures up
memories of summer nights around the campfire. This unique property is being
offered at $849,000. MLS#3025 Ext. 8620
Bringing Tuscany Home
For those interested in living in unspoilt Tuscan countryside, Borgo di Vagli provides a new and exciting opportunity to call this magical retreat “home.” Borgo di Vagli is the first fully restored
14th century Tuscan Hamlet available for fractional vacation-ownership. The unique ownership opportunity allows you to enjoy virtually unlimited holidays in the heart of Tuscany, subject only to
generous reservation policies. Featured in Architectural Digest and the New York Times, this ten-year-old restoration project was conceived and executed by the renowned engineer, Fulvio Di Rosa.
Fulvio is often cited by Frances Mayes, the best-selling author of “Under the Tuscan Sun” and “Bringing Tuscany Home,” as being amongst the best in his field. Her most recent book, “Bringing
Tuscany Home,” is dedicated to Fulvio and on pages 100 to 110, the project is photographed and described during its restoration along with pictures of the resort’s cherished cook, Dina who cooks
with wood fire only. With fractional ownership responsible for over $2 billion in sales in 2006 (according to Ragatz Associates) and real estate values in Tuscany at an all time prime, now would
be an astute time to think seriously about Franctional Ownership in Borgo di Vagli. Another benefit of ownership is Borgo di Vagli’s exchange program with both The Registry Collection and
Destination Exchange International, which allolws owners the opportunity to exchange their vaction time in Tuscany for vactions at dozens of other alluring destinations worldwide. One bedrooms
being offered at €55,000 and two bedrooms at €75,000 until June 30, 2007; then increasing to €92,500. Call Maureen, (951) 852-3939 to arrange an inspection tour or to reserve the inspection
and culinary tour led by Maureen in Fall, 2007. Pre-sales also available in Firenze along Via Tournabourni from €250,000. Ext. 8624.
