Santa's Favorite Hang Out
Two gorgeous palm trees welcome you to the three bedroom, two bath home of Justin and Shelli Lewis. Upon entering, you’ll be immediately struck by the “cool” vibe, and not just from the winter decor. This house is exactly where you’d want to hang out. Justin and Shelli were high school sweethearts that went their separate ways and reconnected later in life right before Shelli’s open heart surgery. Their story was meant to be, and they’ve taken great care to make Justin’s family’s 1970’s bungalow their own. Your mind’s eye will allow you to picture the tasteful grey and neutral palette of the home without the holiday decorations, but on this tour, those are the star! Shelli showcases her unique Santa collection, including a life-size one off the kitchen. In the window, you’ll see the classic “Leg Lamp” from “A Christmas Story,” which neighbors and lakers alike drive by to view as part of their holiday traditions. Visit the renovated bar area to view Justin’s massive stein and Budweiser memorabilia. A trip to their office showcases more limited edition collector’s pieces. Be sure to check out the European spa shower that plays music and Shelli’s beautifully arranged crosses on the master bedroom wall. The breathtaking main lake views make this cozy and tasteful home one you won’t want to leave.
“Christmas at Hoerner’s Corner”
Come check out Brett and Amber Hoerner’s main lake waterfront home with boat dock and salt water pool with slide. This spacious three bedroom, 3.5 bath home was built for entertaining, and the Hoerner family does just that, fully embracing lake life. Brett and Amber together built the custom bar in their 1200+sq ft garage, where they play games including vintage arcade machines. The iron railing staircase leads you to the large open movie theater with custom sound panels. The bottom level has a private entrance and Amber’s office for her thriving home-based business, bathroom with shower, and full kitchenette. You’ll love the tumbled travertine tile throughout, and the chef-style kitchen. The family enjoys the wine and coffee bar which leads out to the covered Lanai deck where they seek out Santa’s reindeer. Festive holiday touches will draw you in, as will the whimsy of their daughter’s castle bed and son’s pirate bed. Stop by the six foot tall Santa mailbox in your way out to leave your letter for the North Pole. There’s no doubt; Hoerner’s Corner is the place to be this holiday season.
"TREES THE SEASON"
Welcome to the three bedroom, three bath home of Tammy and Randy Revard. At Christmas time, the Revard’s home showcases festive touches with their beautiful view of the lake. The Revard’s embrace the holiday season decorating, as it is done in memory of Randy’s mother who so enjoyed Christmas. In all, you’ll see 10 beautiful trees, each with special meanings, to include Randy’s fishing tree, and a pink tree honoring his mother’s fight with breast cancer. Last year’s favorite addition was a movie-themed tree. This year, they are adding a new tree: the Donate Life tree, after Randy was blessed with a double lung transplant on February 17, 2017. You’ll see a tree with elves and bells and a hot air balloon tree. They keep the small hot air balloon tree up year-round because the stained glass of the hot air balloons reflects rainbows and it reminds them of the love they have for lost family and friends. In addition to the sentimental offerings, Randy and Tammy have fun animated decor on display, which earned them the title of Most Humorous House by the Canyon Lake Homeowners Club in 2014. Besides the various trees, you’ll be treated a boat-shaped bed in the guest room and to gorgeous views of the Lighthouse as you venture along the two full-sized patios. Those patios have entertained upwards of 50 people as the Revard’s always have guests over to view the community’s sunsets and fireworks.
Honoring History this Holiday Season
The three bedroom, two bath home of Harold and Beverly Willard is one worthy of a close look at the details. Travel up the poinsettia-lined walkway to the Spanish-style residence. The couple moved to Canyon Lake four and a half years ago to be closer to family, leaving behind 23 years on a ranch property in Northern Nevada. With them they brought rustic charm to the elegant and sophisticated decor displayed in the lakefront home. Inside you’ll be treated to festive touches including a tree with 38 Wallace silver bells, and an angel tree given to Beverly by her modeling colleagues. Next to the fireplace, you’ll find a tree with White House Historical Association presidential ornaments. See if you can count the number of Santa figurines on display throughout their well-appointed home. In the guest room, you’ll find a tree that went to Vietnam twice to spread cheer to Beverly’s deployed Navy brother. Harold’s office showcases his successful career and photos of the couple with presidents and dignitaries. See if you can locate the elephants sprinkled throughout, commemorating Beverly’s time as the Republican National Committeewoman of Nevada. Step out on to their back deck, where you’ll see their perfectly manicured terrace which includes a flourishing lime tree. The spa and fire table are ideal spots to watch the kayakers pass by or to gaze at the unobstructed view of Lion Park. This home is sure to leave a fond and lasting impression.
“Alt I want for Christmas...”
Stop by the three story, six bedroom, six bathroom home of Sabrina and Allen Alt. The home, which normally has a “California coastal farmhouse” vibe, was recently renovated by the Alt family. Out front, you’ll be greeted by their singing Santa. The kitchen will be done in tones of Christmas green, and will showcase Sabrina’s Christmas village. Walk out of to their deck and take in the breathtaking East Bay lakefront. Every turn you’ll see carefully curated decor, from the cardinal bathroom to the buffalo check bedroom. Look for the Hallmark snowman collection, the “Reindeer School,” gingerbread workshop, and sleigh navigation area. This gorgeous home features a craft room, and down into the basement, an oversized game room and workshop. You don’t want to miss this one!
