From Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz to Bing Crosby and Gerald Ford, the storied community of Thunderbird Heights is known for its reputation as a private retreat of presidents and Hollywood A-listers. The community, which boasts spectacular hillside estates and panoramic valley and desert views, offers a classic mix of mid-Century modern homes, remodeled classics, and new contemporary properties. 

One of the premier private entrances in Thunderbird Heights sits 70481 Placerville Road, an impressive estate that is a model of sophisticated design and contemporary architectural elements.

The property captivates with striking structural detail, open landscaped leisure areas, and a showroom-level garage. Features for the residence are numerous and include a lavishly appointed kitchen area with superior surfaces, appliances, Italian cabinetry, and a well-equipped bar. The alluring master suite with an exquisitely styled bathroom and generous walk-in closets offer privacy and comfort. There is also a custom wine wall to display a significant collection, family cinema room, and spacious guest suites each with en-suite bathrooms featuring luxury hotel-inspired finishes.

Prominent iron and glass doors and a true pocket slider make up the living area and back patio for ultimate indoor/outdoor living. The property has a large swimming pool with tanning shelf and jacuzzi, barbecue area with seating options, and a sizable stone fire pit to conclude the evening with friends and family.
