The home was designed by Dennis McGuire who is a well-known architect that still lives and works in Idyllwild. Dennis' homes are nestled in rock out croppings and are noted for their unique design that encompasses the surrounding beauty of the area. The house was featured on the Palm Springs Architecture Home Tour. It is located in the prestigious Fern Valley Area on a pie shaped lot that opens up towards the rock out croppings of Suicide Rock and Tahquitz Peak, with stunning views reminding a person of the grandeur of Yosemite. The location is within walking distance of Humber Park and the well-known Ernie Maxwell trail surrounded by impressive homes in the best part of Idyllwild. Three decks allow for maximum enjoyment of the outdoors.

About the owner: My husband and I both work in the arts and love the wonderful artistic community of Idyllwild. We are so happy to share our home with you and hope you find it's light and peace inspiring!
Why the Owner Chose Fern Valley (Idyllwild-Pine Cove, CA, USA):
We chose this house because we walked in and kept saying, "Wow!" The design to us is just spectacular, down to the copper details in the wood ceiling and the wood paneling on the refrigerator! Everything has been kept true to the original design. We also love how the house "settles us down" after being in the city. One day in, and we are relaxing, letting go of petty worries, and simplifying our lives.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house has three decks, one off the master bedroom, so there are lots more nooks to disappear into than you might realize when looking at it's open design. The two bedrooms each have their own master bath, which allows for plenty of privacy, and there is a guest half bath as well for visitors. Very few people drive up the street as it is a "dead end" so even foot traffic is insignificant. Our neighbors are the NICEST!
