There are few people in America more widely beloved than Alex Trebek. The Jeopardy! host passed away last week after battling cancer for over a year. Now we're taking a look inside the stunning Wine Country lake house Alex once loved dearly. It was listed on the market for $1.4 million last year.
The 2,595-square-foot house is a beaut. It's located in the heart of Central California and sits on 30 acres alongside Lake Nacimiento. The lake is designed to provide many water recreational activities such as water-skiing, water-boarding, and wake-surfing.
The vacation house was listed on the market after Alex Trebek had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Jean Trebek, Alex’s wife said that "we realized that our home was becoming more of an obligation than an inspiration, and that it was time for us to sell it."
According to the real estate listing, the property was offered to Trebek "specially by the original developers, and he has developed the property with great care and aesthetic."
Jean Trebek said the house had been a wonderful refuge for her husband and her family for the last twenty years.
The residence is naturally illuminated by an abundance of windows, many overlooking the lake.
It has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, featuring vaulted ceilings, clerestory windows, and a fairly plain execution.
The living room is featured with french doors and high beamed ceilings, making it more spacious and restful. Alex Trebek and his family must have had a great time here.
The house comes fully furnished, which means that buyer can own all the furniture in those photos except for some artwork and personal possessions.
In addition to the home, the price tag also includes a 1,500-square-foot workshop, built with a full bathroom and two roll-up doors.
To sweeten the deal further, Trebek would also toss a pair of Sea-Doo personal watercraft and a pair of quad motor vehicles. And those Sea-Doo crafts and other boats have easy access to the lake via a private ramp and a covered dock. If you are an outdoor lover, it seems a perfect deal.
