Property description

Only an hour and a half from Orange County and two hours from Los Angeles, this stunning and expansive 2.5+ acre Ponderosa Ranch equestrian estate is located on the sunny and quiet east side of Big Bear Valley, convenient to hundreds of miles of prime horse trails as well as the Pacific Crest Trail and much more! Bordering the National Forest, this hidden gem offers the perfect blend of solitude and convenience.

A world away from the hectic pace of Southern California yet only 15 minutes from Big Bear Lake. The majestic architecture and artful landscaping are fully fenced and gated. This custom built, no expense spared home exudes quality with top of the line brands like Anderson energy efficient windows, new 50 gal Bradford White water heater, commercial grade appliances, Kohler plumbing fixtures, 50-year roofing and special exterior coating.

The solid oak front door leads into a grand entrance with soaring ceiling and gracefully curved staircase. The true chef’s kitchen includes Viking range with double ovens, Traulsen commercial refrigerator, stainless dishwasher, stainless microwave, soapstone countertops and a farm sink with a billion dollar view. Breakfast nook, half bath and laundry reside in their own wing just off the main kitchen.

The formal dining flows uninterrupted into the living room with a rock fireplace, french doors, and large windows to provide the openness that is so important on those special occasions when friends and family gather. Spacious bedroom with en-suite bath completes the first floor plan.

The expansive master bedroom takes up most of the second floor and includes large windows, wood-burning fireplace and California king bed with room to spare! The master bath has double vanities, soaker tub, large shower, toilet room and a walk-in closet big enough for two. The third bedroom can be found on the second story which includes an en-suite bath and birds-eye views on the park-like front yard, National Forest and mountain trails.

The 3-car attached garage is partitioned for office/gym option but the garage door is still operational for parking. Lower gardens include rustic potting shed, apple and pear trees, 20' x 11' greenhouse, freshly remodeled 2-story guest cottage, chicken coop and more.

Car enthusiasts will enjoy the indoor parking for 11 vehicles, along with an 1800 sq ft finished/heated workshop with half bath. A new 30' x 45' steel building includes two 12' x 14' RV drive thru doors plus three 10' x 10' doors, which makes for the ultimate equestrian/car enthusiast/RV barn.
