Lee had so many homes to keep track of! This property was brought to my attention by someone who lives part time in Lake Arrowhead.
Description: Former home of Liberace located right on the point of Hamiltair’s Shoreline. Dazzling Lake Views from all points. Beautifully manicured grounds and gardens. Double Dock. 6 Bedrooms and 6.5 Bathrooms include grand master with Fireplace and glamorous Bath. Candelabras are still mounted on the front stone pillars. One can understand how much this nostalgic Lodge gave pleasure and inspiration to the famed showman! The rooms are voluminous and flow one in to the other for easy entertaining. There is a separate Billiard Room and Gym with Sauna and Spa Tub. The Family Room features a conversation Wet Bar overlooking the gorgeous Lake. There is some TLC and Decorating to do here, but oh, the home feels good…and the location…Superb!
You can also take a virtual tour from the realtor’s website.
This is the Google map of the location. You cannot get to the home to view from the street because Hamilitair estates is one of the oldest gated communities at Lake Arrowhead. Liberace mentions the purchase of this home at the end of his book “The Things I Love” in the epilogue but does not detail any adventures there in his next book the “Wonderful Private World of Liberace.” Setting on a lot listed as just over half an acre perhaps it did not provide the level of privacy necessary for a star of his caliber.
The value estimated by Zillow of the property is just over $1 Million dollars compared to its asking prices. The listing was removed in June 2009 according to Zillow with a list price at that time of $4.6 million dollars.
