A Tip of the Hat to Duke’s Remodeled Home


This residence of fine quality and craftsmanship is situated on an oversized corner lot in the heart of Big Canyon Country Club. Formerly owned by John Wayne in the 1970s, this residence captures light from the home’s eastern exposure, which fills a grand living room with hardwood floors and high ceilings trimmed by moldings. French doors lead to outdoor living spaces that enjoy views of the third putting green, four tee and fairway. With 4,500 square feet, the home offers three spacious bedroom suites, including a downstairs master, each with their own retreat and en-suite baths.  The classic library retains the wood paneling, cabinetry and parquetry admired by the “Duke” himself.  The kitchen features marble counters, a center island, top appliances and a walk in pantry.  A Sonas system provides audio and visual both indoors and out. Fully reconstructed and completed in 2013, the home also includes a gym and a three car garage.
