This sprawling home in the luxury resort town of Lake Arrowhead, California, is not one for subtleties. Built in 1982, the home retains plenty of the bombastic charm of the era. Chrome, brass, lucite, jewel toned walls, and carpet—if it was popular in the ’80s, it’s in here.
But what the home lacks in modernity, it makes up for with sheer space. The six bedroom, eight-bathroom home has 11,750 square feet, and its price reflects that—it’s currently asking $8.75 million.
Now before you balk, realize that that the house is full of architectural gems. Sure, there are mirrored fireplaces and a chrome and lucite serial staircase, but there’s also soaring ceilings and walls of geometric windows that cast dramatic light into the cavernous space.
The house is built around intriguing angles—slanted doorways, pitched ceilings, rounded bedrooms. But it also has a softness to it with rose and wine colored carpet, and more sitting areas than you’ll have butts for. Outside in back, there’s a multi-level patio that’s surrounded by trees and looks out onto the lake. And that, at least, is timeless.
