If houses could talk, Colonel Ed Fletcher’s former Grossmont Inn, near the top of Grossmont Summit surely would have some stories to tell. Like the private hill it’s perched on, some of the tales would be tall, but most, very factual and very interesting about the deep, rich history of this well kept secret corner of San Diego. What’s for sure is this isn’t your parent’s tract home! From the likes of Actor John Wayne, theatrical agent and actor William Gross (precursor to Grossmont), American Novelist Owen Wister (who wrote ‘The Virginian’, which came to stage, film and later, a popular TV series), to the “Madame”, Ernestine Schumann-Heink, a world famous opera singer whose sprawling home and grounds is another landmark just down the hill on Sunset Avenue; famous painters, singers, musicians, authors and poets from around the world came to this rural area. Wayne filmed many westerns in the area known as the ‘Grossmont Artist’s Colony’, simply became ‘the Artist’s Colony’. Now it’s your turn to seize the rare opportunity to own, live and immerse yourself in an important part of East County’s history. For the first time in nearly 40 years, this beautifully designed and impeccably maintained Emmor Brooke Weaver Craftsman home is on the market. Built in 1913, this was one of the first homes built on Mt. Helix. And just as Colonel Fletcher’s early 1900 guests (typically potential land purchasers or celebrities looking for a quiet getaway) enjoyed the sweeping, breathtaking views the birthplace of Mt. Helix’s artist colony offered, you, too, can drink in the twinkling lights each evening from the comfort of your spacious impressive sitting room. A rare opportunity to honor the rich past while toasting 2022 and the new year in style! Get in on the relaxed living in time for the holidays!
