Magic Castle in Enchanted Evergreen Forest accurately describes this income property estate. This was the original, largest estate in Moonridge in 1932 built in redwood by hand and completed after WWII. This Victorian home is encased within a stone retaining wall fully screened in front by its own forest and walking trail. The forest in the back yard is partially inside the retaining wall and off a huge Trex deck overlooking Snow Summit and Bear Mountain. Plans to build a Victorian 2-car garage and upstairs apartment with a sweeping ski slope view and water rights have been approved by the City of Big Bear Lake. This property currently has a dual residence rarely found anymore and has plans for another which makes this an ideal vacation short or long term rental with managers residence. It is one of the most versatile properties in Southern California. Skiers, snowboarders, golfers and fishing fans are frequent guests. People from all over the world made The Magic Castle their destination in Big Bear. The ski resort lights up the backyard in winter, and the 4th of July fireworks can be seen from the huge redwood front deck in front of the solar lights. The house has been updated with expensive carpet and custom blinds. One bathroom and bedroom features a carpeted wall, crystal chandelier, a claw foot tub and pedestal sink. The upstairs bedroom is very large and has a view overlooking Chair 7 at Snow Summit. The Torch Parade on New Years' Eve can be seen through the window. There are also spacious lofts above the apartment and in the garage. The downstairs bedroom has a glass door on the back deck with a view of Bear Mountain. Many of the doors in the house are glass that gives great soundproofing. The ceilings are plaster for better fireproofing and sound resistance. The living room has hardwood floors, crown molding, and a beautiful Victorian staircase leading to the upper floor. There is also a den which can also be converted to another bedroom or office. The existing driveway can be doubled in width. A retaining wall is recommended to build the extra garage and apartment. This estate is located by the ski resort, golf course, restaurants and shopping. Large item pickup is available through Big Bear Disposal. The snow plow comes by every day in the winter, and the tram for skiers and snowboarders is within walking distance.
