Idyllwild house description

Dwelling at Ponderosa is a spectacular 4000 square foot vacation home located in beautiful Idyllwild, Ca. The house is perfect for weekend getaways, retreats or family reunions. Sleeps up to 20 with the most amazing views imaginable!!

The owner is an architect and the home was meticulously designed with keen attention to both aesthetics and function. This home provides a visual experience and natural setting that has absolutely amazed past guests.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all necessary bowls, pans, griddles and cookware and dining service for 18. Additionally, there are two dishwashers...nice!!

The upper level has a Great Room which includes a dining area that has a table that seats 14-16. There is also a separate library with an ever growing stock of books. (This room also makes a great place for the kid's to play, yet still stay in site. The room has a glass door to view the ruckus yet keep the quiet). Also, the Great Room has a game table and a case of board games and puzzles. But please note, what the house is not stocked with any media nor does it have WIFI. Our desire for this home was to create an environment where people can experience close community and interaction with each other and nature; thus, there is no television, computer, cable, internet, etc. (Cell phone reception is excellent, however).

There is an eight foot glass barn door that opens to the outdoor patio which has a direct view of Lily Rock and creates a lovely indoor/outdoor feel.

The bedroom level is uniquely laid out, where each bedroom has its own sink. In addition to the two suites that have their own bath, there are two showers and and three toilets, all of which are in their own separate rooms. Nobody ever hogs the bathroom in this home!!

Please note that the house is set up on the hill, which provides amazing views and privacy. However, there are 40 steps from the driveway to the house and the site is steep in some areas.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About the owner: I am an architect and with the help of my wife, designed our dream vacation home. We spent a great deal of time on the aesthetics and details of both the interior and exterior of the home. Our intent was to create a true getaway environment that is quiet and away from the business of everyday life. The look we created is modern, yet rustically elegant.

              Why the Owner Chose Idyllwild:
              We chose this location because Idyllwild is less than 2 hours from Los Angeles and Orange County. In addition to having a beautiful natural setting, it is a lovely town with lots of fun places to shop and dine.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              This home is unique insofar that it has been specifically designed to feel intimate like a home yet provide all of the necessities to comfortably sleep large groups. The site is quite steep in some areas which creates fun play and hiking areas. However, there are enough level areas for outdoor relaxing. Additionally, during snow season there is a great sledding hill. Directly outside the Great Room is a small meadow and deer often come to visit and say hello!
