MOTIVATED SELLER! This Magical Tenaja Equestrian Estate must be experienced to be believed! An absolute UNICORN in its achievement of luxury, creativity, sustainability, whimsy, usability & privacy, it is a feast for the senses! Upon entering the private gate, you will find artistic details at every turn, including a dreamy pool cabana w/roll-up doors, kitchenette, sleeping quarters & bathroom - surely commanding a waiting list with your family & friends! The main house is a cornucopia of creative treats – the legacy of the professional craftspeople who built, with love, this MASTERPIECE. Enjoy the Great Room w/aged beams, vaulted wood ceiling & custom masonry fireplace, a gourmet kitchen, custom tiles fired on property by the artist & imported European barnwood 8-inch plank flooring throughout. The primary bedroom suite & guest bedrooms reside on the main floor with the loft converted to a full suite with kitchenette & bathroom. Minimized utility costs are a product of the custom cinderblock construction, which assures a lovely & consistent ambient temperature. The slight elevation of the home on the parcel provides for a never-to-be-obstructed sunset view over the Fish & Game Conservancy, Tenaja Valley & Cleveland National Forest. Outside, be prepared to be joyfully lost in whimsy & surprise, with lighted walk paths, bridges, a seasonal meandering stream, lush, yet low-maintenance landscape, fruit trees, the relaxing daybed ‘Citrus Shed’ & the world’s cutest cowboy-town chicken coop. Happy horses may also join you in this surreal adventure, as the equestrian area is equipped with 2 covered stalls, a round pen, huge turnouts, tack shed & ample trailer parking. In addition to the 4-car garage & 2 additional covered parking spaces, there is an RV pad with hook-ups. If you appreciative fine detail & true craftsmanship, you must see this UNICORN!…Discover the Santa Rosa Plateau w/5-acre minimum parcels, friendly neighbors, star-filled skies & peace–all just minutes from town, schools, restaurants, hospitals, grocery stores & the 15 Freeway. Here we enjoy space to take walks, breathe clean air, grow gardens/vineyards/groves/orchards, partake in equestrian activities & community events, raise animals & hike miles of trails via the robust private recreational trail system & thousands of acres of the Ecological Reserve…All of this w/in 20 minutes to town & less than 1.5 hours from LA, San Diego, OC, Palm Springs & Big Bear.
