Discover your private paradise at this unparalleled custom Craftsman-style home on a dramatic promontory in Idyllwild, where incomparable views are among the finest in the region. Spanning 270 degrees, the panoramic vistas are mesmerizing, encompassing both sunrises and sunsets, monumental Lily Rock, Suicide Rock, Tahquitz Peak, verdant forests, sprawling valleys, and sparkling lights in nearly all directions. The home was carefully designed so that each room offers the enjoyment of surrounding views. Thoughtfully painted organic shades of green to harmonize with its setting, the mountain-lodge-inspired residence is located at the end of a peaceful cul-de-sac and complemented by a massive 5.1-acre homesite that is as versatile as it is beautiful. Multiple areas are suited for building, making it possible to create an impressive family compound with guest houses and more. The land allows for easy access without stairs—a rarity for view homes in Idyllwild.
Construction quality is off the charts. Built by Terry Griner to the highest standards, the home is resilient to natural disasters. Its state-of-the-art construction is camouflaged by phenomenal architecture that incorporates the finest finishes and fixtures, with stylish Green and Green-influenced elements. The open-concept single-level floorplan, which extends approximately 3,362 square feet, showcases vaulted 18' ceilings, an impressive Craftsman-style living room fireplace capable of heating much of the home, a fully appointed kitchen with 10' island, and more than 1,400 square feet of outdoor decking accessible from all significant rooms. Three bedrooms and 2.5 baths are featured, including an oversized main suite with an enormous walk-in closet. An artist studio and den welcomes scenic views, and a fully finished and insulated 2-car garage is about 1,000 square feet and accompanied by adjacent outdoor guest parking.
The home’s enviable setting is moments from the village of Idyllwild’s shops and restaurants. The small town is renowned for its friendliness, and residents respect one another’s privacy. Homeowners enjoy the change of seasons in a mountain setting, yet remain surprisingly close to necessities including airports and medical services. The city of Hemet is convenient, recreation is abundant, and the Coachella Valley, home to Palm Springs, is about 40 minutes down the mountain.
