A contemporary home on the historic property that once held Wake Robin Lodge is on the market for $4,395,000. Made famous by Jack London in his 1913 novel “Valley of The Moon” and the property was once frequented by the author who called the historic lodge, “a queer house – but we love it.” Although only a few bits of foundation and stairs remain, the current home shares the same connection to nature the historic property once had. Like its turn-of-the-century predecessor, the current residence, appears to spring from the soil, just as the trees that surround it.
Rebuilt in 2014 to pay homage to the original design, the home centers around an octagonal tower. On the first floor, there is a massive great room with combined spaces for cooking, dining, and hanging out. Radiating out from that are three bedrooms each with their own bathroom and access to the outdoors. But wait there is more! The home has not one but two offices, a music room and a home theater/family room. The chef in the family will be impressed by the gourmet kitchen with a large central island, butler’s pantry, and climate-controlled wine room.
On the second floor is a palatial master suite with heated floors, high ceilings, and access to a private balcony. On top of that, there is a custom closet, dressing area, and a spa-like bathroom.
The grounds are equally impressive, aside from the towering trees there is a pool, spa, sleeping cabin, shop, barn, and gym. If that is not enough, cruise on over to the year-round creek, frolic in on the verdant green lawn, or tool around in the raised-bed garden.
