Ballena Vista, a stunning 170-acre estate, perched high upon the hillside overlooking the entire valley is an extraordinary custom home built by Dave McGinnis, with finishes beyond your imagination. Featuring 40 acres of grape varietals, space for additional vineyards, and the capacity to convert existing structures into a first-rate winery. The property also offers ample room for overnight guests and staff, including a guest house, 3 casitas, and 5 modular homes. A luxury 8-stall barn and a separate 38-stall barn provide an opportunity for equestrian pursuits or alternative uses. Nearly self-sufficient, with an abundant well water supply and expansive solar farm, Ballena Vista is the premier estate in San Diego County. Located just a one-hour drive from Downtown San Diego. The property includes plenty of water, with 7 wells and a 400,000 underground storage reservoir for irrigation as well as a 50,000 gallon and two, 10,000-gallon storage tanks for potable water. There is a pump station distributing water to the various pastures and vineyards. The electricity is provided by its own solar field, the 2nd largest private solar field in San Diego County. There remains plenty of room for horses with some of the finest barn facilities anywhere and spacious fenced pastures for turning them out. There’s even a quarter mile racetrack to stretch their legs. Whether a full-time residence or a weekend getaway this is one of the premier estates in San Diego County and has been reduced in price to sell at less than half the cost to replace it!
