This home is absolutely the "REAL DEAL". Constructed around 1940, it was the home of well known Highlander, Doris Allen-Dietrich for over 50 years who dubbed it "Queen of the Mountain". Many of the long time Big Bear Pen residents still refer to it as that. Doris was known for her large neighborhood gatherings featuring Barbecue and Key Lime Pie. The farmhouse was among the first structures on BBPM and sited on a virtually flat lot with a southern view and is now surrounded with old growth oak, maple and locust trees, rhododendron and rock outcroppings. Previously mostly untouched, the home was completely renovated in 2017 top to bottom with absolute respect to the original style, architecture and materials. The extensive wormy chestnut interiors were all retained as well as the period fireplace and staircase. The porch overlooking Satulah and Fodderstack Mountains with Rich Mountain and the town of Walhalla beyond, was significantly expanded and now includes a second stone fireplace. The home was completely re-wired, re-plumbed, insulated, all new windows and exterior doors, two new Lennox HVAC systems and completely updated kitchens and baths (maintaining original period style). Additionally, a stand by generator wired to power the whole house, crawl space encapsulation and a garden shed were installed. The indoor and outdoor living areas flow seamlessly for entertaining and the large carport doubles as a party pavilion. Bring your friends, family, kids or grand kids and start making your own mountain traditions.
