There’s something magical about a waterfront getaway, whether it’s a lakeside cottage or manse perched on an ocean cliff. Our latest water-adjacent listing is located on a private cul-de-sac in Lake Arrowhead, a scenic spot in the San Bernardino mountains about two house from Los Angeles.

The four-bedroom, four-bath house has been renovated by designer Jenni Kayne to look straight out of a magazine. Measuring 2,678 square feet, the 1947 home was once awash in linoleum floors, dark wood paneling, and bad carpeting. Now, it’s almost impossible to imagine its former appearance; the three-story property features light oak floors, a painted white fireplace, bright subway tiles, brass fixtures, and marble accents.

To break up all the white, Kayne opted for muddy green Shaker cabinets with chicken-wire insets and open, reclaimed wood shelves in the kitchen. Each room boasts picturesque lake views, and the home also comes with a mudroom, private dock, and boat slip. Throw in a separate bunk house with a half bath and you’ve got a photogenic, functional getaway that can sleep up to 10.

Pining after your own lake oasis in the hills? 403 Emerald Way is currently on the market for $2,195,000.
