Offered at $1,500,000 52915 Middle Ridge, Idyllwild, CA
Envision your future here, in this mountain retreat at 52915 Middle Ridge Drive. While you will live far from the problems and noise of the urban environment, if needed, a 2-hour drive can bring you to the center of Los Angeles or San Diego. Amazing panoramic views seldom found in the usual mountain home are yours forever. You will drive up your one tenth mile driveway through your electric gate, no next-door houses, and relax among the trees and mountains. There are 3 parcels included in this sale, with over four acres of privacy and beauty.
The 3-story home can be designed for your personal estate, or as a spiritual retreat as it is zoned multifamily and has many upgrades for your enjoyment.
In total, there are 6 bedrooms, 3 ensuite, with their own bathrooms, an ensuite bonus room used as a 7th bedroom, a spacious family room, 2 kitchens, 7 bathrooms, and a spectacular living room, kitchen, and dining area, all connecting seamlessly.
There are 2 separate entries. Floors 2 and 3 are the main home, with 4 bedrooms, one with its own fireplace, 3 bathrooms, kitchen, dining room, and a grand living room with vaulted ceilings, stone fireplace and panoramic views.
At the first floor, there are 2 bedrooms plus a bonus room used as a 3rd bedroom, a spacious family room (with its own wood heating stove) now used for yoga and meditation, 4 bathrooms, and a separate kitchen and dining area.
Nearly all the windows have been replaced with dual pane glass. There is air conditioning for the first floor family room and lower kitchen. A new propane forced air heating system and ducting were added, supplied by the property’s own 500 gallon propane tank. The upper 2 floors are served by a whole house fan.
A new septic system was installed, the home was re-roofed and at that time 4+ inches of extra insulation were added to the roof. When the commissioned electric gate was added the private drive to the home was graded and paved.
Nearly every window has a beautiful view inviting you to deepen your at-oneness with nature. The pristine sight of iconic Tahquitz Rock, statuesque granite monolith gracing the mountain heights, alone is priceless.
For those who value being prepared for any eventuality: the home has an electric gate which can be locked; an automatic propane powered generator to produce electricity for the house when required (the 500 gallon propane tank supplies the 1 gallon of gas per hour to run it);; a several hundred-gallon water tanks on the slope near to the house awaiting installation of a pump and line to catch and store rain water; and the wood burning fireplaces on the second and third floors (and wood stove on the first floor) that with the electric heat circulating systems will heat the house to any desired temperature. Firewood is abundant on the 4+ acres. Self sufficiency is achievable.
