Discover a hidden gem on Big Bear Lake's sunny shores – an exceptional lakefront home in a coveted location. Perched at the tip of a cove and perfectly positioned to provide privacy from neighboring homes, this immaculately maintained retreat is completely ready-to-enjoy, with panoramic lake-view interiors that offer 4-beds and 4.5-baths, set amidst meticulously landscaped grounds on a generous lot that includes a private guest house and two 2-car garages (4-car total). ​ Unforgettable summers unfold here, with social spaces designed for endless entertaining. Whole-house audio creates cozy gatherings, an outdoor BBQ kitchen pairs nicely with sunset cocktail hours, and a sprawling deck seems to float just over the water's edge. Views stretch to the dam, and water lapping at the shore just steps away, is a call to go boating, kayaking, or paddleboarding. ​ High ceilings in the great room showcase a wall of glass that frames an ever-changing landscape – rippling lake waters and clouds sweeping across the San Gorgonio mountains. A stone fireplace, billiards area, and dining room with wood floors bring family and friends together. The kitchen looks out on serene lake views, and offers bar seating, granite surfaces, and luxury Viking and GE Monogram appliances. One of two garages is located off the kitchen and is drywalled and painted, creating potential to add a media or game room. ​ Upstairs, the main house offers 3 bedrooms with walk-in closets and individual audio controls. A junior primary suite boasts a mosaic-tiled bathroom, the guest room has water views, and a guest bath provides a dual sink vanity. Jaw-dropping lake views create an enviable primary bedroom that offers vaulted ceilings and a fireplace. Its ensuite bathroom is stunning, featuring a separate shower, dual vanities, makeup vanity, and a jetted tub with fiery sunset views. An additional bedroom is found in a private guest house with a living area, bathroom, lake-view patio, and its own 2-car garage.  ​ Outdoor spaces are an oasis, with an investment of $50k blooming into exquisite landscaping and bespoke masonry. Close to $40k in window upgrades include energy-efficient storm shutters, leaded glass entry, and light-filtering window shades. Additional features include wood garage doors, fire sprinklers, tankless water heater, and more. In a prime location near desirable hiking & biking: Alpine Pedal Path, Discovery Center, Solar Observatory, Cougar Crest & Woodland Trails. Just 7 minutes to grocery stores, and a few more to the Village, Summit, and Bear Mtn. Your lakefront retreat awaits.
