Click to the right to see the highlights of the house known as the Jewel of Escondido. Since the turn of the century, the 21st century that is, the house has been lovingly restored to Victorian splendor for the eye, including pastel gingerbread, gorgeous multi-patterned wallpaper, antique fixtures, and polished wood. What you don't see are the necessary modern upgrades in the plumbing, electrical system, and insulation. It even has solar power! It also features covered terraces, gardens, and palm trees for genteel outdoor living. Oh yeah, it's got four bedrooms and two bathrooms. There's no indication that the furniture is included in the sale, but we can dream, can't we? The fireplace, lights, and fixtures are pretty enough.
