About the property

Private Pool, Big Views, Serene, Large Spanish Ranch home, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bath

A unique custom home property in Borrego Springs. Situated in the exclusive private and gated golf community of Rams Hill. Large custom Spanish style Pool home, positioned on nearly 1/2 acre at 850 feet above the desert floor, this home is situated for AMAZING 360 degree views of the Anza Borrego deserts, mountains and Badlands. Our Home is Serenely landscaped on nearly 1/2 acre estate with a fully walled perimeter. Guests of this home have full access to the amazing new "San Diego's Best" Fazio Course in the community as well as the beautiful and newly renovated clubhouse country club dining and cocktails. Folks that have stayed here comment "the posted pictures don't do the property justice" or "Exceeded Expectations". I think that's what we are all looking for in an escape. Exceeded expectations. You will not find another like this in Borrego. A star gazers paradise with large unobstructed views from every direction. Situated on a very private lot. Inside the home there is 3000 square feet of living space in a very open floor plan, 3 large Bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, vaulted wood ceilings an outdoor shower off the master suite, a wonderfully large Master bath/dressing area with walk in closets and step in soaking tub. The Kitchen area is one of the centerpieces of this home. Perfect for any gathering. (up to 7 people please!) Well laid out wet island, large cooking area, bar area, breakfast nook. Great for cooking, entertaining or just hanging out. The living area has a baby grand piano for guests use, large vaulted ceilings, huge seating area and a beautiful natural stone hearth gas fireplace to enjoy on cool desert nights.

Step outside to the back of the home under the protected canopy and take in the best views of the jewel of California Deserts, Day or Night. Beautiful 360 degrees of blue skies, mountains and deserts.

Lounge in the pool or spa all day while taking in the views. The pool and hot tub are seasonally available heated at an additional cost (propane is very expensive here). There is something and somewhere on this property for everyone to enjoy, together or find your own space.

The Country Club now open, the highly acclaimed Fazio Golf Course is available in to our guests (please contact the pro shop for green fees and tee times) as well, our guests can enjoy the 2 best restaurants in Borrego, Rams Hill and Caza Del Zorro next door.

We believe this property caters to most folks looking for a get away. It is perfectly situated for Hikers and adventurers, those looking to enjoy the beautiful desert sun, cyclists, off road jeepers, folks looking to just get away from the cold. We love animals, but Pets must be pre-approved and listed on the application.

Yo, Cochran's,

Weekend Stay at Rams Hill Drive House in May 2017

  • 4 of 5

This was our second spring staying at Peter's house in Borrego. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay this spring---just as we did the year before. The 3-bedrooms (with adjoining bathrooms) were perfect for our three families (our two daughters and their husbands). The view is magnificent and we really like the quiet (you're not aware of anyone else in the general vicinity). The golf course (Rams Hill) is a nice layout, well kept and quite challenging. Peter is responsive if you need anything. For any family wanting to enjoy the layed-back Borrego life-style, we highly recommend staying here for the weekend.

Lovely spacious home, great views, peaceful and quiet

  • 4 of 5

After a handyman came, we were able to cook on the gas stove, but the microwave didn't work nor did the outdoor grill We definitely had planned to cook outside while we were there. None of the tv's in the bedrooms worked.

Owner's Response: Alden, Thank you for the review. While we understand that Gas stoves and gas grilles can be complicated, I am happy that we were able to have our handyman come straight away and sort it out for you. Sorry you had that trouble. Jokes aside, our Stove and Grill work flawlessly. We did replace the microwave after that visit.... Best Luck, Pete

Great house with a great pool and amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and comfortable. The pool was great. We went out to the desert to star gaze and watch the Perseid meteor shower. The backyard had the best view of the sky and we can see tons of stars, the milky way, and a couple dozen meteors fly by.

The community of Borrego Springs was charming. The kids liked driving around looking for the different metal art sculptures all over Galleta Meadow.

The owner, Peter, was great to work with.

Thanks again for a wonderful stay.
