About The Lake Houzz

Tucked away in the hills is the most stunning California residence you’ve ever imagined. Although this lakefront estate is a mere 26 miles from downtown San Diego, residents are whisked away into their own private world. The sheer beauty of the design will leave you speechless, beginning with the exterior landscape. It owes its natural splendor to artist Brennan Hubbell, of the world renowned Hubbell family. The landscaping alone took six years to complete, no detail having gone unnoticed. Curtis Gabhart of Gabhart Investments has been involved with hundreds of properties in the San Diego area, but as he described, this one has a special appeal. “In all my travels around the world,” he describes, “this is truly one of the most beautiful spots I’ve ever been to.”

 The Energy

“The energy of the property is like nothing I have ever experienced before.” The estate is truly a work of art. The second floor of this 6,500 sq. ft. home boasts a 1,400 sq. ft. private master retreat. Each morning residents are greeted by 270 degrees of unobstructed views of one of San Diego’s hidden treasures, Lake San Vicente. To ensure the highest levels of relaxation, the master bath also includes a sauna. Lakefront living has its own unique list of perks. Lake San Vicente is one of only two lakes in San Diego that is suitable for water skiing. Residents can always be found enjoying its glassy waters or simply soaking up the sun on its 11 miles of shoreline. This remarkable lake is also perfect for fishing, having laid claim to California’s record catfish weighing in at 125 pounds. Residents can also escape into the lush landscape surrounding the lake, where the terrain is ideal for hiking, mountain biking and off road vehicles.

The Lake

San Vicente Reservoir

The lake responsible for producing the last two California State Record Blue Catfish, first a 101 lb Blue caught in 2001, and in 2008 a 113 pound giant Blue Catfish. There is a natural island in the middle of the lake that provides prime fishing territory and an attractive view from all around. The lake is also a prime bass lake that regularly hosts fishing tournaments from local and regional organizations. While it doesn’t typically produce the size of fish that the smaller reservoirs do, it has been consistently the best bass fishery in the county. Trout are stocked during the winter which provides fun for anglers and growth pills for the bass to gorge on. Trout fishing is somewhat sporadic however and actually the least popular. This lake is an incubator for 3 lb. Bluegill, Redear Sunfish, and Largemouth bass with a large percentage over 10 lbs. In addition to fishing, water-skiing is also available on the lake.


Barona Creek Golf Club

Just 6 miles from one of the top courses in California according to Golfweek.

San Vicente could be whopper in 2015

San Vicente could be whopper in 2015 Closed in 2008, the lake will have had seven bass spawns by the time it reopens for fishing By Ed Zieralski 6:08 A.M.JAN. 4, 2015 The San Vicente reservoir is set to reopen in 2015, letting anglers and water sports enthusiasts return to the lake which was closed seven years ago for raising the height of the dam more than 100 feet. — John Gibbins / U-T San Diego   LAKESIDE — Whenever the re-opening of San Vicente Reservoir to fishing and boating is mentioned, one of the oft-heard mantras goes something like this: “I just hope I’m still alive to fish it.” Variations of that abound, but the point is, anglers who haven’t fished San Vicente since it closed for construction in 2008 live for one more cast on it. Fishing was that good for big bass and giant blue catfish, even big bluegill. But there is also this: They know that any fishery that has been closed for over seven years will offer phenomenal fishing when the launch ramp fills with boats. San Vicente was closed in September 2008 to raise the level of the dam. Its reopener is tentatively set for Nov. 5 this year, but a lot will have to happen. “A number of factors, really,” said City of San Diego reservoir keeper Larry Rodrigues, who has overseen the project for the city and checks the dam and water readings once a week. “The County Water Authority will take the water down and then bring it back up. But that’s providing there’s water available. The earliest it will open...
