Exceptional Lakefront Acreage Estate

5100 Panorama Drive, Jago Bay

There exist only a few really special properties, with those unique characteristics that support a lifestyle that meshes with the unique qualities you would like to have in your life. They only come along on the market every now and then. This is one of them.

Located in sought-after Jago Bay, down a private no-exit road is a lakefront estate of 8 acres, a luxury home with traditional styling, fully-landscaped grounds, awesome lakeviews, fencing and cross fencing for horses or other livestock, 600 feet on the lake, with a delightful lakefront environment complete with boat lift, and a dock modeled after the Golden Gate bridge. You will not find a property quite like this elsewhere. At least, anywhere in Lake County.

Let’s walk through it virtually:

The home is set back from the road in traditional red and white colors to give you the feeling of the family ranch, complete with the white picket fence, of course, a grassy lawn area, fruit trees, ornamentals and palm trees.

Behind the home is a large deck opening off the large “great room” living space where the panoramic view draws your feeling out wide towards the breathtaking beyond of Clear Lake, Mt Konocti and other mountains in the distance. We are on Panorama Road and that describes what the view offers. You are completely private here. No one around to disturb your peace. This is a place to entertain your friends, your family, or take your time to relax and just hang out. You’re in your own world.

This property has a private road that takes you down through the rest of the estate down to the lakefront. You can walk, or take the ATV.

When you get there, coming down the curving rock staircase, what you see is a revelation. The “Golden Gate” bridge awaits you. You have 600 feet on the lake, so you are still completely private and you have your own special piece of Clear Lake. There are rock formations, and on one of them, there is a waterfall. There is a large deck space for guests, and then down the bridge to the boat lift and boat cover. The boat lift is extra heavy duty, made to hold a 8,000 lb 25 foot boat.

But Let’s Check Out the Home:

Built in 2005, the home features a large great room with vaulted ceilings, chunky exposed wooden beams, lovely reclaimed eastern pine wood floors and a feature stone fireplace reaching all the way to the ceiling that might remind you of the resonance of a big country lodge, though everything is like new and full of light. Everything is open including the kitchen, with spaces for dining and high-end Marvin natural wood surface sliding glass doors opening onto the deck. There are large windows on both sides of the room and a total of ten skylights, flooding the space with natural light and giving a feeling of easy transition between the lovely grounds in the front of the home and the expansive deck with the fabulous lake and mountain views.

Anyone who loves to cook, including the gourmets out there, will be delighted by the kitchen. It is very open, with lots of counter space, and cupboards, beautifully done in granite and natural cherry. A big butcher-block island with stools for casual dining. A large commercial Thermadore stainless steel stove with grill, with matching stainless steel, refridgerator, dishwasher and separate microwave oven and even a built in wine cooler add to the splendor and utility of the space. Both the fridge and the wine cooler are Sub-Zero.

In this one space you can cook, dine, lounge, entertain, move in and out to the deck or the grounds, and altogether enjoy your lifestyle with friends and family.

Let’s check out the bedrooms. The natural wood floors carry into the master suite which enjoys the lake views and entry onto the deck through another natural wood sliding glass door. The hot tub is right there. It has a vaulted tongue & groove painted wood ceiling and its own fireplace. An over-stuffed armchair fits right in. It’s a living domain just on its own.

Entering from here into the large traditionally styled bathroom, everything is still roomy and full of natural light. You can still enjoy the lakeviews from here. The primary color is white with small diamond styles, a separate tiled shower, a pedestal sink, and a modern updating of the clawfoot tub.

From here, you are surprised to find a private dressing room and office. This is a completely private space when you really have to get away and concentrate.

The other two bedrooms are both good sized with high ceilings and crown moldings and pleasant views through the natural wood finished windows onto the grounds.

The bathroom for these two rooms is tiled carrying the same traditional design theme. Off the kitchen there is a large utility room, which you will find is more than useful, and through here to an oversized garage. The criss-cross barndoor styling on the doors is a nice touch.

The home is made comfortable by propane central heating, air conditioning and for alternative energy-efficiency: two commercial swamp coolers.

Near the house is the fenced in pasture which has been used for horses, with a shelter and tack room as well as other fenced enclosures mean it can also be used for other livestock and pets if desired.

The whole property is being offered for sale at $695,000, dramatically below the owner’s cost of creating this fine estate. The land alone was purchased for $500,000. They have enjoyed their journey in creating this special place full of personal attention to detail. They feel, with some reluctance, that now is the time for them to move on, and to entrust the property in the hands of someone new. They can help with financing if there is 50% down.

It is unusual to find lakefront property in Lake County without forgoing privacy because the demand for lakefront is so high, or forgoing quiet, because roads follow the lakeshore in much of the county. This property gives you significant lakefront, along with complete privacy and quiet, stunning views as well as the ability to live a small ranch lifestyle. In addition the development of the property has been a labor of love and creativity, which putting it all in one package, at this price, means that you get many things all at once, for what is a truly great value.
