We have land in Ramona (just east of Escondido/San Diego). Not much around it, save for a bunch of small farms and custom homes. Nothing too grand.
It's a nice little drive from town and just about two hours from where we live. This land has belonged to my family since I was a kid, and it just sits there. I think it would be the perfect location for a weekend house, but it might be difficult to convince everyone else of the idea.
But it's nice to dream. I really wouldn't need much...
Lots of windows for natural light.
A few bedrooms with very minimal furniture (I'm thinking all white walls and white fluffy down comforters).
Thick and colorful Mexican blankets.
Thrift shop mid-century ish furniture.
An Eames recliner.
A simple kitchen.
A small pool and hot tub.
Is that too much for a simple house in the country?
