Architect's Dream

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental house. Sleeps 6, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms. Dogs allowed.

Idyllwild, CA 92549 United States

Perched among boulders with incredible mountain views, is a unique architectural home constructed with old growth redwood, concrete and soaring corner glass windows. The home was designed and built by locally renowned architect Dennis McGuire. It has been photographed numerous times, including by Julius Shulman, famous photographer of mid century architecture.

The house is a marvel of engineering with a very open design and soaring 25 ft wood ceilings. The architect's extensive use of glass as well as incorporating existing boulders into the house gives a seamless indoor/outdoor experience. Contributing to the living room’s character is large slice of a cedar tree serving as a coffee table, and cork bark tiles on the far wall.

The master bedroom includes a king sized bed, large desk space (perfect for those who like to catch up on some emails) and a in suite bathroom. Upstairs loft bedroom has a queen sized bed and it's own in suite bathroom as well. Finally, the third bedroom is the casita bedroom which has its own private entrance and bathroom.The outdoor spaces compliment the interior. There are 2 patios, the largest has commanding views, built in benches, Adirondack chairs, market umbrella and gas grill. There is a hammock nestled among the trees. Paths and steps wind among giant boulders and soaring pines.

The house is in a quiet neighborhood that is adjacent to the Nature Center with many hiking trails in the state park / wilderness. This home is truly a jewel in the forest. Architect’s Dream is perfect for two couples & small groups who want to experience Idyllwild.
