El lugar

This unique home was designed and built by the mid-century master architect Robert Skinner, whose work was featured in the renowned Julius Shulman's "Case Study Houses". The house was built as Skinner's personal retreat in 1981.

Built in a park-like setting on over 7 private acres in the San Jacinto mountains and adjacent to the San Bernadino National Forest, the home is less than an hour from Palm Springs and just two hours from either Los Angeles or San Diego.

Sited on the last of a rare chain of small spring-fed mountain lakes 10 minutes from Idyllwild, the setting exudes peace and serenity on a pond teeming with wildlife. (Please note that the pond depth is seasonal.)

This extraordinary home is the perfect getaway for a writer, artist, or any lover of architecture and the environment.

Designed to be sustainable, the 2800 sq. foot house runs entirely on solar power and draws water from its two dedicated private wells. The kitchen has all new appliances and the entire house has been professionally decorated with period-appropriate and unique furnishings.

With an effect that blurs the distinction between where the indoor space ends and the outdoors begin, ten-foot high glass windows and doors run the entire length of the home and overlook the pond and the mountains beyond. The two floors are seamlessly integrated in a loft-like design.

Skylights in both upstairs bedrooms let in the sun and the moon. A fantastic den/study has a deep, wrap-around drafting desk perfect for writing or making art. The den/study has a custom floating lighting system that turns working into a delight.

The master bedroom has a new large flat screen TV, DVD player, queen-size bed, built-in closet, a wood fireplace, and a private deck. The master bath has ample closet space, full-length mirrors, a shower, and a gorgeous soaking tub under a skylight. The second upstairs bedroom has twin beds, which can be combined to make a king-size, and is completely private.

In addition to the two bedrooms upstairs, there is a family suite of two bedroom and a full bath on the first floor, making two connected but distinct sleeping areas for privacy -- perfect for two couples to share the house, or for children to have their own space.

Many built-ins designed by the architect allow maximum storage while letting the amazing variety of wood details fill the house with color and elegance.

The house is a study in the use of warm wood tones: The floors are white oak, the walls are yellow cedar, the ceilings are heart-redwood and the built-in furniture is teak.

There is wireless internet throughout the house. The internet is cellular and good for emails and light surfing but no heavy streaming or downloading allowed.

The large living room has a second fireplace, flat-screen TV, and a beautiful collection of mid-century and modern furniture, with breathtaking views of the seasonal pond and surrounding mountains.

The large outdoor deck has a gas BBQ, outdoor dining table, chaise lounges for relaxing and we recently installed a fantastic outdoor shower so you can bathe with a view of the pond and mountains.

Thanks, Dj! Your lovely home worked perfectly for our party of three (unrelated) adults taking a weeklong summer workshop at Idyllwild Arts Academy. We were very comfortable and loved the architecture, décor and scenic location. We found the drive to the center of town and the academy to be very scenic and not excessively long. The home was very clean with comfy beds, spacious bathrooms, a well appointed kitchen with lovely views and all amenities to make our stay comfortable. We would definitely stay again.

Beautiful house in a setting that is perfect for adults and kids 5+. Our ten year olds had a blast, off adventuring in the grounds which included rocks to clamber on and trees and bushes for dens, and a long tree swing. Of course amazing hikes in the surrounding area. House is great, well appointed and comfortable, beautiful airy space. It could be tricky with a toddler because of deck / stairs / mezzanine without full barriers, but as said, amazing for older kids and adults. Bring binoculars and a Sibleys guide because the deck is its own birdwatching destination. We loved it, thanks.

Dj's place was the perfect long weekend escape from work and the busyness of the everyday. A super spot. We logged a lot of time on the deck overlooking the pond and mountains. Beautifully appointed, comfortably spacious and just right for our small group. I'd highly recommend it for anyone looking for some or all of the same.

This is truly a home that DJ loves and he put a lots of care. The home is close to Idyllwild but also secluded. Great place to relax, ready and enjoy friends. Highly recommended.

This house is something out of a dream. Both the house and property are so gorgeous you have to see it for yourself to believe it. DJ was so communicative and responsive from the 1st moment and although it's not listed as a family friendly place it really is, my 4 yr old and 10 month old loved it! The swing inside the house and outside the house were a big hit, as well as the big bean bag. The archictecture of the house is just beyond words and you can tell it was really something extraordinary in its heyday. The property is massive and fun to go explore, go on a hike. It's about 5 miles from Idyllwild which was nice, super secluded yet just a short drive to all of the snow and happenings in idyllwild. We really enjoyed our time there and hope to visit again soon, hopefully when it is actually snowing there, can't even imagine how more beautiful the property must be when it is snowing there! Definitely a top notch experience, thank you for everything!
