Here’s a lakeside home where we’d love to dock—a luxury retreat in the mountain resort town of Lake Arrowhead, CA, that doesn’t have a rustic log cabin vibe.
In fact, this spacious home on the lake is so ’80s you half-expect to see Don Johnson cruising up to the dock in a cigarette boat.
However, the six-bedroom, eight-bathroom property does come with a very 2019 asking price: $8,750,000, to be exact.
The double-story, paned windows overlooking the lake work no matter what the era, and the lovely mountain views are timeless.
Aside from the perennially lovely location, this place is a time capsule, immaculately maintained in all its 1980s splendor. Features like mirrored fireplaces and a chrome and lucite staircase will transport you right back to the gorgeousness and glamor of decades gone by. The home was built in 1982, with the finest and most up-to-date luxury materials of the day.
Popular jewel tones of the era are featured in almost every room; ruby, sapphire, topaz, citrine, and more sparkle throughout the home. It’s reported that President Gerald Ford stayed in the blue room after he stepped down from office. And one can’t help but envision the shoulder-padded ladies of “Dynasty” swanning about.
Rose-colored carpets and shiny brass strip accents are also prominent, as are myriad mirrors—tinted, beveled, and otherwise. Their silvery surfaces grace walls, ceilings, and even chimney faces, and they so reflect the ’80’s!
There are also classic, lacquered acrylic cabinets throughout the home, especially in the kitchen and bathrooms. And where there isn’t brass, there’s an abundance of shiny chrome.
The porches, patios, decks, and vistas won’t need much of a refresh, since the views and the cozy placement among the pines appeal to all. Other attractive outdoor features include a sizable spa, an outdoor kitchen, a pier, and a dock.
Located at Eagle Point, in the exclusive and private Shelter Cove community, the location is one for the ages. Neighbors are barely visible through the full-grown mountain foliage. While there may be several more sizable luxury cabin properties on the market, you can be assured that this one is unlike any other.
