A Kitchen Designed by Owner / Professional Kitchen Designer
The theme of the estate is quality, sparing no expense. The kitchen is an example. Features: Solid cherry cabinetry with plenty of easily accessible storage along with two dishwashers, a relatively new Samsung 48" built in refrigerator, a combination gas cook-top/electric convection range, an Advantium oven that cooks with light and microwaves, a second convection oven and a warming drawer. The copper sinks were designed and manufactured by the owners company, Rachiele Custom Sinks. One of those copper sinks is a workstation sink allowing for food preparation to be accomplished on the sink instead of the counter. The hood has a custom copper a high powered remote exhaust (eliminating the fan motor noise). The high counter top is made of solid copper - again handcrafted by the owner's company.
There is a new tank-less hot water heater dedicated to the kitchen. There are three other tank-less hot water heaters throughout the home. All of which have been updated since the home was built. There is also an elaborate whole house filter system that requires no maintenance at 10 year intervals.
The Expansive Family Room Adjoins the Kitchen and Dining area.
This home was built for family and entertaining. This entire area is covered with high end cork flooring. Not only is it easy on your back, but it is always a neutral temperature when walking with bare feet.
The custom cherry entertainment system cabinetry features a built in electric fireplace and dimmable LED lighted display shelves. In fact, virtually all of the 93 can lights have been retrofitted to dimmable LED flood bulbs as a small part of a 300K recent multi-year whole house upgrade and renovation. To see a full listing of upgrades, click belowThere is a Story or Two Here...The owner built the generously sized dining table of solid 1 1/2" thick butcher block maple. (50" by 109") It easily seats 10 with oversized chairs, The custom wrought iron base was also built by the owner. The wall is adorned with hundreds of imported Swarovzki crystals specially flown in from the factory in Austria for this project.(one at each intersection) Clear glass beads in-between shimmer inside each large diagonally placed square. Two different hand painted faux finishes show through the glass beads. See VideoSix to Seven Months of the Year, the Pool Area Becomes Part of the Home.The family room spills out to the pool and fireplace area using 8 foot tall by 12 foot wide pocket sliding doors. Instantly turn this home into a party. Listen to the soothing trickle of the waterfall while reading a book or entertain 40 to 50 people with ease.A Formal Living-Room is Through the Arched Door to the Left.The living-room has a large sliding glass door system that opens out to a rotunda and a view of the wooded area behind the home. The door to the far left is to the executive office and the arched door to the right heads you toward the original master suite.Over 10 feet of Custom Painted Maple Cabinets and Display area with lots of Good Storage Below.The living room is huge. Plenty of room to entertain or simply turn this room into a billiard and bar room. Open up the blinds to see the beautiful rotunda and pristine woods with no signs of neighbors in view.The Family Room is Quite Large, However the Faux Painted Gold and Bronze Walls Warm up the Area Nicely.The ceiling height throughout the first floor is 12 feet. Cork flooring was added about 7 years ago - throughout the family room, kitchen, dining and pantry areas. Easy care!This is the Lifestyle. Soak it in.Can't decide whether to sit inside or out? There is no shame in doing both.The Original Master Suite is Huge and Opens up Completely to the Pool Courtyard Area.During fall and spring, sleep with the sliding doors open to the pool and watch the stars at night, in bed, though the screened roof. Listen to the fireplace crackle as you fade into sleep.
Slip out of bed in the morning and into the pool in summer months.
This room is called the "original"master suite because a second master suite was built using the entire second floor just a few years ago.There is Another Glass Sliding Door in the Master with a Surprise.The property is so private, the owners put an outdoor shower on a large "L" shaped tile patio outside the sliding door leaving the master suite. A favorite spot for private sunbathing and a cooling shower afterward.As you Round the Corner, you Enter the Master Bath, full of Surprises!This is one room where the owner definitely put his mark. The custom copper vessel sinks were made by his company. Further into the room to the right is a solid copper shower. The walls, ceiling and crown molding are solid copper - requiring almost no maintenance at all. The copper is virtually maintenance free. The new shower head (one of two) is a huge 16" square rainfall shower that changes color from blue to green then red as the water gets warmer. A wall mounted shower head was special enough for Donald Trump. (there is a long story behind that!)Enter the Massive Pantry. If you Love to Cook...Storage is in abundance throughout the estate. This photo shows the door leaving the pantry - which is faux painted to look like burled wood. The stairs and custom wrought iron railings take you to the new master suite. The cabinetry to the left, swings around behind you housing a chest freezer and counter tops made of cork and cherry.Cherry Cabinetry Galore. A Pantry fit for a Gourmand.The deep tall 36" wide pantry features roll out shelves for easy accessed storage. The drawer unit to the left of the freezer are deep full extension drawers. A wide array of storage designs allow for easy access to virtually all of your goodies.One of Many Private Entrances into the Home.This entrance brings you into the pantry and up to the new master suite - or into the downstairs kitchen. If you use the downstairs master, you can lock the door from the pantry to the kitchen and a guests can live upstairs with their own private entrance.
The door to the right was custom designed by the owner and made in Guatemala of 2 1/2" thick Mahogany. There are two other such exterior doors.The upstairs was Recently Remodeled into a Luxurious Master or Guest Suite.Nearly 1000 square feet of bedroom, kitchen and bathroom to live in. The owners found themselves spending 95% of their time upstairs. Empty nester's nearing retirement, busy running a family business, rarely used 2/3's of the home - hence they are downsizing and selling the home that was built with no thought of ever selling it.A View from the Other Side of the Suite.Virtually every room in the home is wired with Cat5 wiring, speakers with volume controls and standard cable. There is even a pneumatic tube system (like you see at a bank) that runs from the master suite down to the executive office! The owner/builder is a gadget guy.
Plush thick high quality carpet is easy to clean and soft on the toes!But Wait.. There's More!A huge wing off to the side gives even more spacious living area with lots of custom made storage and an ornate makeup table and mirror.The Upstairs Suite has a Massive Kitchen!No expense was spared in this solid hickory cabinet kitchen with a $5,000 custom made hand hammered workstation sink with interior ledges that support a cutting board, a drain grid and a sponge caddy. The faucet is unique as well. Also made in the USA, the $2500 faucet has a lifetime mechanical warranty - as does the faucet on the workstation sink in the main kitchen downstairs.Now you can see why the Owners Rarely left the Second Floor.Peaceful and tranquil, this suite is surrounded by soundproofing walls. In fact, every room in the house has insulation between the 5/8" thick sheet rock. The added thickness of the Sheetrock technically makes every room fire resistant.Every Bedroom Features Something Special.This bedroom features a sliding glass doorway to the pool area and to a bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub.The Main Bath is Shared with the Bedroom Shown Above and to the Right.This bathroom has a Jacuzzi tub, a custom wall hung vanity and a Toto water closet.
Privacy is important, so when a guest is staying in the adjacent bedroom, they have a private door into this bathroom. A second door can be locked so other cannot have access. There is a half bath near the dining area for guest use as well.The Half Bath is Adjacent to the Dining area and the Executive Office.The cobalt blue sink and faucet were imported from Germany. This spacious half bath has quite a bit of potential.A Completely Separate Guest Wing with a Private Entrance.Your guests will feel like kings and queens when spending time with you. The guest wing is spacious, quiet and opens out to the pool. With a private entrance, your guests can come and go without disturbing you. This area has its own private entrance and was originally designed as an in-law suite with all of the amenities required for long term residency - including wheelchair accessibility.Your Guests will Never Feel this Spoiled Anywhere Else!A custom made textured stainless steel and glass shower is easy to care for and shows your guests you feel they are important too! This is the bathroom for the guest wing and can be shared with the pool area. There is a Toto water-closet and an imported 3/4" thick glass vanity bowl and counter.This is Where you will see the Owners Reputation for Being a Gadget FreakThis is no ordinary office. First of all, the electrician that wired the house commented that there are more electrical outlets in that room than in most small houses! There is over $80,000 in cherry cabinetry work in the office alone. The main side of a pneumatic tube system (that runs upstairs to the second master suite )is hidden inside a floor to ceiling cabinet. There is a laser that shines through the clear plastic sleeve that, when a tube has arrived to block the laser, a LED hidden light blinks that can only be seen when sitting at the desk.The Tall Cabinet to the Right houses the Pneumatic Tube SystemThe tall cabinet in the middle is fully usable, however, it hides an eight foot tall glass exterior door that leads out to the rotunda. The pneumatic tube system was set up because the upstairs was originally office space for the early days of my business. We outgrew the space quickly. The tube system allowed the passing of letters and paperwork from the upstairs office to my office downstairs.This is a Photo Exposing the Hidden Exterior Door.Batman never lived here, or did he? This hidden doorway opens to an expansive rotunda with a fountain in the middle. A peaceful place to sit and read a book.This Photo Shows the Left side of the Office as you Walk in.More storage than you can imagine! A very special granite was used on all tops in this room - showing a multitude of iridescent colors in certain light.More Surprises.The owner was in a rock band. This room is in the front left downstairs portion of the estate. It is so sound proof that you can barely hear the band when upstairs above the room. This room, for some reason, was missed when calculating the square footage of living space as it was originally designated as storage. It has always been air-conditioned and has hot and cold water with a drain for setting up a bar. This huge room could be used to house jet skis, motorcycles, or turned into a theatre room or exercise room. What would you use it for?Solid copper Walls, Ceiling and Crown Molding Adorn the Downstairs Master Shower.No need to wipe down the walls in this shower! Copper naturally sloughs off water spots and soap. We have only had to wash the walls down three times since 2001. This shower was designed to be as maintenance free as possible. The new shower head at the ceiling indicates temperature based on LED color lights. There is also a wall mounted shower. Both can be used at the same time. A whole house sized tankless water heater resides inches away, just on the other side of the shower, so you have instant warm endless hot water.Even the Garage has gadgets.A single post car lift was installed so that a massive work bench could be made. The car lift is rated at 5,000 pounds. The Jaguar in the photo weighed in at 5, 500 pounds and there were no issues lifting it.Just over Two Acres plus Deeded Access to Three Lots on Bear LakeThere are no 5,000 sf homes anywhere with two acres of land plus deeded access to three lots on Big Bear Lake (or any other nearby lake for that matter). This is a one-of-a-kind property with no comparableness. Sanctuary stands alone in its unique design, quality and features.
