Michael Ricks of Windermere Real Estate Becomes the Exclusive Agent for Celebrity Owned Home on Eight Acres in the San Bernardino Mountains, Listed at $1,650,000
Celebrity home currently owned by a writer & actor and once owned by Bella Lugosi. Eight acres of pristine forest located in the San Bernardino Mountains is being sold with a real Log Home. Michael Ricks with Windermere Real Estate is the agent representing the seller.
The seller was living in Bel Aire when he bought the property as a romantic escape for his beautiful wife and himself from the smog, heat and hustle bustle of Hollywood, says Michael Ricks. Over time they created a writers paradise and what can only be described as a nature lovers dream with lush gardens featuring a pond and fountain surrounding an enchanting two story and true log home built in 1981, a charming guest cottage by a meadow was added to the property in 1997.
I have never seen views like these, set your eyes for stunning and treat yourself to the incredible and unmatched views of Catalina Island, Los Angeles, the Gabriels, Lake Gregory and the Mojave, explained Michael Ricks. It is so beautiful to enter total seclusion on approximately eight acres of pristine forest as you navigate a private road that traverses the property and forest, the main gate is electric and activated by remote. Also there is income produced from this property from a radio repeater tower on a remote and out-of-site peak, with potential for more. One side of the property backs up to the national forest. It is seldom that we see such a meticulously maintained enchanting home that I believe is truly one of the last of unique places on the Mountain to hit the market. Viewing this extraordinary property requires a generous amount of time as the details and interesting architectural features will take time to explore and appreciate, said Ricks.
This is the kind of investment we are often asked about. The property could be kept whole or divided into eight one acre parcels. The location: San Bernardino Mountains, 90 minutes east of Hollywood, 75 minutes west of Palm Springs. You can choose to enjoy this home as a winter wonderland with the many proper fireplaces blazing or a summer getaway with all the windows open and cool gentle breezes, you’ll find this home near Lake Arrowhead and far from ordinary.
