BIG BEAR CASTLE is an exquisite 6 bedroom, 5 bath, 4200 sq. ft,. uniquely designed luxury home that sleeps 16. This gorgeous home is in a beautiful, convenient and easy to access area of Big Bear Lake (close to skiing and just 1/2 mile from the lake). The home is nestled in the pines on a fenced and gated property. Walk to the lake where you can fish, hike or watch 4th of July fireworks !!! Shopping is nearby.
The main house of BIG BEAR CASTLE estate consists of 4 (of the 6) bedrooms & 4 baths. One of the bedrooms & two of the baths are on the main floor to accomodate any elderly in your group. The Castle bridge will take you to an attached private 'Casita guest house' that has an additional 2 bedrooms, a mini livingroom (with yet another fireplace !) and a bathroom (with jacuzzi tub). Try out your cooking skills in the amazing kitchen with granite countertops, custom travertine flooring, a large Viking stove, and stainless steel built-in appliances including a dishwasher and microwave. The kitchen has a large pantry available for storing your food and is stocked with lots of board games for your family and friends to enjoy. This fabulous main house has two dining rooms... the custom round dining room has a table that seats 8, a small round table that seats 4 and another dining room off the living room has a large table that seats 8. The large (620 sq. ft). living room has a wood burning fireplace with plenty of seating as well as a beautiful pool table, flat screen TV, DVD player and wireless internet. Laundry facilities are provided for your use. The castle has an inner courtyard (700 sq. ft.) where you can sit and enjoy the mountain air or you can relax in the beautiful new spa on the 500 sq. ft. patio out the back of the main house. This luxury home is the perfect location for your next family reunion, ski trip with friends, girls or guys 'weekend away', summer vacation, holiday gathering, honeymoon, anniversary or birthday celebration. Bring your family and friends up to Big Bear Lake for an unforgettable experience at BIG BEAR CASTLE...'The Castle in the Pines'. When you share the cost with family and friends you end up in a 4200 sq. ft. home for what you may have paid for multiple hotel rooms per night. We think you'll want to return again and again!!

Location

Big Bear Lake is the 'go to' destination for families due to it's close proximity to Los Angeles and 'four-season charm'.

In the winter Big Bear Lake is a skiiers and snowboarders paradise. With two ski resorts, Snow Summit and Bear Mountain Big Bear is the ideal mountain resort. The Alpine Slide at Magic Mountain and Big Bear Snow Play (the only inner tube parks in Southern California that have Magic Carpet uphill lifts that transport riders to the top of the mountain) provide hours of family fun for adults and children alike. When your day is finished stroll the village enjoying a cup of hot chocolate or enjoy an evening of live theater.

In the summer family and friends can enjoy all types of water sports in Big Bear including boating, the Miss Liberty tour boat, entertainment at the Performing Arts Center, fishing, para-sailing, jet-skiing, swimming and more. Be sure to enjoy a visit to the Big Bear Discovery Center and the Big Bear Historical Museum. End your day with shopping and dinner in the Village.

Don't overlook Spring & Fall in Beautiful Big Bear where you can enjoy moderate temperatures and a variety of mountain activities like horseback riding, hiking, mountain biking, golf and more.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We have been visiting Big Bear each year for a number of years and fell in love with the area. Our children and grandchildren have joined us there for wonderful vacations. Big Bear offers everything from skiing to boating to live theater to walks in the village to get an ice cream.

Why the Owner Chose Fox Farm, Big Bear Lake, CA, USA:
When we saw Big Bear Castle for the first time we were drawn to it's old world charm and the incredible attention to detail in craftsmanship. It had an abundance of custom features. While large enough to accomodate several families the home had a warmth that made us want to grab a hot chocolate and sit by the fire.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the fact that the castle has plenty of room for individual privacy while at the same time allowing for several families to gather in the large livingroom to enjoy the fire, watch TV, enjoy board games with the kids or play pool. The large outdoor patio and courtyard are great for large groups to enjoy a BarBQ or for family to simply sit in the solitude of the mountains or read under the pine treees.
