9633 El Granito: a Big Sur aesthetic meets up with the Mount Helix convenience to create a 1 of a kind property. Wood-clad architecture on the multiple structures sited in the densely planted double lot evoke a time from the past. The artist studio has a bank of windows to take in the views of the El Cajon Valley and beyond. Situated on the north slope of Mount Helix, this wooded lot captures the ocean breeze. For most of its history, the property has been owned & cared for by musically-talented folks & artists who find inspiration and creativity there. The Mills Act provides a reduced annual property tax bill. The historical designation was awarded based on 3 separate criteria, including Criterion B: people. The house is associated with people of local and international importance including the namesake of Grossmont, actor & director & author William Gross; Ed Fletcher who was an investor with Gross and whose name is synonymous with development throughout San Diego & is memorialized in the names Fletcher Hills and Fletcher Parkway; legendary opera singer Madame Ernestine Schumann Heinck, one of the world's best operatic contraltos who also entertained US troops during WWI and sold millions of dollars of US War Bonds. The art colony concept attracted many singers and actors, more so as a place of respite from the long tours required back in the days before television to self-promote; rather than a place of creative collaboration that a pure artist colony would cultivate, this popular Mt Helix colony was a status symbol for the owners. Some of the others who invested & owned a home in the colony: composer & lyricist Carrie Jacobs Bond; novelist Owen Wister who wrote "The Virginian" in 1904; poet John Vance Cheney; baritone Charles William Clark; music critic Havrah Hubbard; composer Charles Wakefield Cadman; horticulturist Kate Sessions was involved in landscaping and furnishing trees in the colony; actress Lillian Russell; NYC nightclub owner Grace Godwin-Sperry.
