From the northeast corner of Apple Valley — where the first, now disappeared, Apple Valley house where my family lived, was — you get views to the south and southwest of the hills and mountains, during the day and at night. And the occasional desert storms.
These are from real estate photos on Zillow.com for 17358 Candlewood Rd.
This area seems relatively upscale — large, newer homes, an area called Sycamore Rocks, with its own elementary school, just within the Apple Valley Town borders. For $300K or $400K one could buy a very nice home.
Just a dream.
Everyone is deeply drawn to their childhood homes, I suppose.
