39802 Lakeview #29, Big Bear Lake is now on the market for $399,900.00
The Viking Estates Condo's were built in 1983 as a Condo complex on Big Bear lake. They feature their own private docks, indoor swimming pool, indoor Jacuzzi, and weight room. The complex is a gated community and one where the HOA has set the bar very high for a clean, yet affordable luxury get a way.
The current owners of the Viking Estates Condo # 29 purchased this unit from the bank after it was foreclosed on. I wish I still had photos of what it looked like when they closed escrow so that I could compare them to how it stands out today. The owners spent no expense in refurbishing the unit to meet their high standards, their tastes, elegance and quality. The thought of ever selling the Condo and leaving the Big Bear area never crossed their minds until recently, where life has a way of changing our plans for us. The Condo reminds me of the ugly duckling who changed into a magnificent swan. The hard work and attention to detail is evident in every room in the Condo and their loss can certainly be your gain.
Pictured here is a shot of the living room that sits on the 2nd level. This level includes the Living Room, Dining Room, Kitchen, and a Half Bathroom. You can step out of the living room on to the wrap around Trex decking. If you are not familiar with the Trex Decking, it is a composite material that handles both the dry summers and wet snowy winters in Big Bear without having to do any maintenance to it.
The windows that were installed originally were old and in need of work, so the owner had them changed out to Double Pane, High Resistant, LOW E, Air Tight Framed quality windows. He mentioned to me that he noticed a big difference in his heating bill this past winder once the windows had been changed.
You will not see another kitchen like this in any of the condos in Viking Estates. The owner removed the fluorescent lighting and had flush mount can lights installed in it's place. The Stainless Steel High End appliances fit in well with the granite counter tops and the Terracotta on the walls. New wood flooring was laid down over the ugly linoleum that was there when he bought it and now you have a kitchen that you can't wait to get into and utilize!
The master bedroom is a nice size and also features a fireplace. Most all of the units in Viking Estates have wood fireplaces in the master bedroom. But the owner of this one didn't feel like hauling wood up to the third level nor did he want to do the work necessary to clean up after a wood fire. His fix for this situation was to install a gas fireplace instead. Now with the click of a switch, you have a nice fire burning and you're not in and out of bed adding wood or fussing with the red hot embers. To the right of the fireplace was a large opening that was used to store firewood. There was no sense in wasting space, so that is where the built in safe now sits.
While the master bedroom sits on the 3rd floor, the Guest Bedroom sits on the first floor, providing plenty of privacy for both parties. Just like the Master Bedroom, the Guest bedroom has it's own full bathroom just around the corner from the bedroom. As you will see in the next photo, there is plenty of sitting room in the Guest Bedroom
If quality and eloquence is what you are used to, then look no further. Whether you are primarily going to use it for the winter ski season, or the summer water sports season, this is the place to be. Reasonable HOA fees, Gated Community, Indoor Pool and Spa, Tennis Courts, Weight Room, Recreation Room, and much more.
