Wanna buy a succulent nursery in San Diego County?

Yep, you read that right.

If you’ve ever dreamed of relocating to San Diego County (✔) and/or owning a succulent nursery (✔), now’s your chance. This kind of opportunity may never happen again.

Just take a look:


Dreamy, isn’t it?

All photos are from the official listing web site found here.





Of course there is a wee sticking point: price. I don’t currently have $1.5 million. But if you do, this is what you get:

Welcome to Paradise! Amazing lifestyle property features nicely appointed 2005 built house with beautiful canyon & sunset views over 8.44 acres of land. Ideal live/work home is currently a successful nursery with large inventory of cacti and succulents & national reputation. Add your own home-based business dream. Property zoned A70, horses allowed too! Nestled in a stunning private garden with patio & fenced pet area plus garage, the home is a comfortable, updated space. Secluded, yet only 3.6 miles from highway, 2 miles from Meadow Lake Golf Club, 10 minutes from central Escondido & 40 minutes outside downtown San Diego. No HOA. Owned solar panels reduce power bill to near 0! Property is being sold as a package, home, land, inventory, business goodwill, and operator training. Ask listing agents for details.

The nursery in question is Desert Theater Nursery. I’ve never been there, but I have friends who have and they rave about it.

Succulent expert, author and photographer Debra Lee Baldwin lives near Desert Theater Nursery and has taken many photos there that were later used in her books and presentations. She has put together a special web page with extensive information about the property and its potential as well as a series of beautiful photographs. If you’d like to receive the link to that page (well worth it!), please contact Debra.

And if you happen to plan a visit to San Diego anytime soon, be sure to stop by Desert Theater. I may be in San Diego next month, and if I go, I will make every effort to visit.


  1. I wish I could. looks like heaven to me!

  2. Perhaps if we all go in together : ) I would love to move back to San Diego!

  3. Gerhard, if only I am 15 years younger, I would do it in a minute and move to Escondido. We had our Succulent Fanatics party there last year. He was so nice to host our part. It truly is a succulent lovers paradise geared for commercial sales. Everything (well almost everything) is big. I hope it has not sold before we go back in May for the Succulent Celebration. I want to go back one more time.

  4. Maybe if we all start a collection drive? I can only imagine how fun it would be to live there!
