"Well-maintained and immaculately kept mid-century, ranch-style home atop Lemon Grove in the Engelstad Manor subdivision has a natural flow that allows for unobstructed light and wonderful breezes. Bonus of over-sized living room and equally over-sized family room with vaulted ceiling, large wood-burning brick fireplace and lots of windows with views from backyard where itâ€™s a pleasure to sit, watch the sun set and the colors change on Mount San Miguel. Fenced back yard, mature citrus trees. Thereâ€™s tons of storage space throughout the property with generous size closets in house, custom-built cabinetry in the garage and the work/storage shed. The storage shed also doubles as work and craft space with lights and power. All-open attic with two entries. Private, fenced back yard with mature, fruit-bearing citrus trees and a working beehive that produces honey. Full-sized washer and dryer inside attached, one-car garage, which is next to carport and two more driveway parking spaces. Historical footnote: The son of Mr. Engelstad, for whom the subdivision was named, lives directly beyond the backyard fence. Historical footnote 2: The original owner of the house in 1953, designed and had the addition built in 1969 on the back of the original house. The lime tree in the backyard was planted 37 years ago when his daughter was born. The beehive came about because of ownerâ€™s concern for the Colony Collapse Syndrome that is attacking honey bees. The bees are a great pollinating source, which is evident by the abundant fruit on the lime and grapefruit trees. Owner cautions that unless buyer has necessary training and would be able to register hive with the City of Lemon Grove, hive will be removed. If buyer is qualified and wants to keep hive, a price can be negotiated for protective gear, tools, etc. No honey extraction tools available. Equipment: Washer,Garage Door Opener,Dryer.
