Property Description

Panoramic view, .4 Acre, Private and Serene Hillside Parklike setting, One owner custom 1968 beautiful home, + Historic Bancroft Ranch 1890 “Olla”. High Vaulted Beamed Ceiling, Great floorplan with 3 Bedrooms plus Den. Walk out basement has Laundry Room + 11 x 22 Storage Shop area. The home is below Helix St tucked into the hillside and hidden from the world. The Historic “Olla”; the Original Cistern of the Helix Farms Spring that “Spring Valley” is named for. The “Olla” Spanish for “Cooking Pot” is what Historic Water Cisterns like this one were called in Early California. This Historical Landmark is the Original Cistern for the Helix Farms. The Spring Fed Cistern is the Spring that Spring Valley is named for. The entire property was part of Historic Bancroft Ranch and the garden like grounds are crossed with Stone Stairs, Stone Steps… meandering paths and romantic Stone Benches for resting in the shade. The age and actual origin of the walkways, stairs and benches is unknown. The property has the feel of stepping back in time. The home is tucked into the Hillside of Historic “Cactus Hill” close to the top and on the West side of Helix Street. This is a true custom one owner home…. According to the Spring Valley Historical Association, housed at the Bancroft Ranch below, The “Olla” has no paper on it as a Registered Historical Landmark. But any buyer should read the “Community Design Guidelines for the Spring Valley Community Planning Area, San Diego County. This document is attached to the mls file as an extra document. Specifically take note of page 71, the guidelines for preservation of Spring Valley Historical sites. The Seller’s and Agents are making no representation as to the ability to modify or remove the “Olla”. This is a wonderful part of Southern California History. The Bancroft Ranch is the first European Immigrant home in the Spring Valley area. The “Olla” was built in 1890. The photo of the woman gazing into it from the top of a ladder was taken in 1895. The history of the “Olla” is well documented. The home is a 1968 Custom Home that for it’s age is in excellent condition. The property is being sold As Is. The furnishings are available for purchase.
