This house is incredible and the photos do NOT do it justice!
It’s in the Palisades, just minutes from my house and I pass it when I take the walk along the lake instead of the lanes… and every time I stop at it because the location and view of the lake from this point on the ALA path is just stunning.
I’ve been told that this home belongs to Sammy Hagar (red rocker) but I can’t know for sure. It’s local Lake Arrowhead talk, but there happen to be tons of celebrities up here who own second homes or have decided to call this magical place home – because well, why wouldn’t you?!
It’s so close to Los Angeles, it’s an obvious retreat, and it’s like an entirely different world up here, even though it’s so close. You get four seasons and feel like you’re living in some kind of hidden wonderland. I know I sound ridiculous when I talk about it, but growing up in LA and now living here are almost like living on two different planets. I’m sure if I grew up here, I’d be singing a different tune because it definitely has those small town vibes that kids probably complain about being so boring, but for those who are entirely sick of the city, it’s the answer you’ve been looking for. AND it’s still so close, you have the best of both worlds.

I almost think the photo of the door above is for the second/guest house on the property because the main door below looks much larger, like double doors.
The photo below is generally the view I get of the house when I’m on the trail along the lake.
