Racquet Club Estates house description

Our Original restored Palmer+Kriesel designed Alexander mid century sits on 11000 square foot lot on a cul-de-sac and was featured in the New York Times 'Home section' entitled 'Desert Cool' in 2005. Inside, you'll find classic modern treatments such as Eames tables and chairs, Case Study beds in both bedrooms, mixed with completely renovated bathrooms and kitchen. High vaulted ceilings and refinished flat cement flooring throughout with throw rugs and FLOR tiles.

The Living Room has a Hi-Definition plasma TV with DirectTv and movie channels. The master bedroom also features a wood burning fireplace. Wall-to-wall sliding glass doors open to a kidney shaped pool, surrounded by palm trees. There's even a private outdoor lounging/eating covered patio, framed by Frosted resin panels. 2 separate in-ground gas fire pits, one by the pool and living area, and the other by the hot tub, provide some privacy even when together on the property.

We have a brand new Hot Spring HotTub Spa as of February 2013 with Moto-Massage® jets, complemented by a Quartet® jet system, to soothe your neck, shoulders and back. Its comfortable seating, styled armrests, and SoothingStream® water feature provide maximum relaxation.

PS TOT#20010031


THREE LOUNGING AREAS : Additionally, a third seclusive lounging area off the middle bedroom (away from the other areas) by the hot tub features original Balinese wood loungers. Overall - magical and relaxing...

COMPLETE PRIVACY: The house is located on one of the larger lots in the Racquet Club Estates and is completely enclosed and private (backyard, pool ,spa, lounging areas)

GOLF + PARK: While 'true' golfer's probably won't want to use the clubs we make available, we do have an old set at the house for your use...in case you want to golf at one of the local public courses for fun.

Just one block away is a large grassy park with trees and benches, etc.

**UPDATE: As of FEBRUARY 2013 we have a brand new HotSprings Spa/Hotub for your enjoyment featuring exclusive 'Moto-Massage Jets' to soothe your neck, shoulders and back.
