The latest home to hit the Big Bear lakefront real estate market is 40230 Lakeview Drive, listed as a 3 bed, 2 bath, 1156 square feet Maltby home built in 1940 on a gently sloping 7701 square foot lot. Located on a wind-protected cove just west of the Village, this home is centrally located and walking distance from dining, shopping and entertainment.
The home itself is dated but seems to be in decent shape. The structure sits close to the road, Lakeview Drive, which is a relatively busy street. The silver lining to the structure being close to the road is that there is a sizable back yard. The floor plan of the home has the livingroom on the street side leaving the kitchen and dining room with the lake views. The master bedroom downstairs is sizable enough. But the other bedrooms are tiny; just big enough to fit a twin bed in each of them.
Perhaps the best feature of this house is the back deck. It is spacious and would be where one would want to spend most their time enjoying the beautiful surroundings, not the least of which are some nice views of the lake. This home does come with a boat dock that is a platform layout which would require boats to be side-tied.
The neighboring properties to this new Big Bear lakefront home for sale are of similar quality and somewhat close in proximity. In fact, the home to the east has a driveway that encroaches on this home's property.
Considering the recent sale of an almost identical lakefront home right around the corner at 370 Gibraltar for $521 a square foot, and considering that the location of this recent sale is arguably better, I think the list price of this new lakefront home is on the high side. But with the summer approaching, the market improving, and with there being so few waterfront properties for sale currently, there is a good chance this seller may get their price!
