Private Homes house description
Book this tropical "estate" and enjoy complete privacy in the romantic "green" spaces of this architecturally designed 4BR/4 bathroom home. This modern inspired mid century makeover transcends mid-century architecture for a Zen-like retreat. New pool and spa installed in 2010. The Living Room blends wood beamed ceilings, 50 inch HDTV, bamboo floors and a slump stone fireplace together with walls of glass viewing the pool and tropical landscaping. This home is a haven for health, hummingbirds, citrus trees and pleasure. It is not a "party" house and there are strict penalties in place for noise or traffic created in this quiet residential neighborhood including fines and/or eviction.
Tongue and groove redwood ceilings frame the open, eat in kitchen with raised snack bar for 3 more, while an outdoor built-in wet bar and range continue the entertaining. The casita guest house perfects it, constructed with Western Red Cedar doors and beach house windows overlooking the length of the pool and spa, the guest house doubles as a stand alone entertainment area and also has a queen size Murphy bed and 1/2 bath.
The master retreat opens to a private patio and features a king temperpedic bed and an indoor/outdoor rain shower, private patio, 40 in. HDTV, and walk in closet with laundry. At the other end of the house is a 2nd bedroom with a queen bed temperpedic bed, a 20inch HDTV and adjoining bath (shower only) and a 3rd bedroom with two twin beds and adjoining bath room.
The baths and kitchen showcase custom concrete and stainless vanities with raised sinks and modern fixtures. With its elements of nature, estate feel and prime location (2 blocks south of El Paseo and 1 mile from Living Desert Museum), this work of art truly signifies the ultimate Desert lifestyle property.
This home feels like a resort with warmth, privacy and beautiful decor/landscaping. It is a place to calm down, unwind and enjoy the convenience of a central desert location when you pull in the gated drive. You can even park your car and walk to all necessities for easy living while feeling hours away from civilization.Enjoy complete privacy and tropical romance in this architecturally designed 4BR/4 bathroom home.

Awesome rental property with lots of charm!!
Awesome rental property with lots of charm!!
My wife and I have stayed at this property twice in the past 2 years, and I must say, we couldn't have been happier with it! We loved the privacy offered in the beautifully landscaped back yard, along with the pool and the hot tub! We also had another couple staying with us, so the private casida off the back of the house was a great way to accomodate them. Very open, spacious interior with ammenities that are modern and plenty. Great location too - just a short work from El Paseo, with breathtaking views of the mountains to capitivate you way there!

Great location, solid property
Great location, solid property
We stayed in November '09 just before the pool and spa were remodeled and I'm sure that would have made our stay even more impressive. The location is unbeatable. Easy, almost perfectly flat, walk to El Paseo (Starbucks!) for my wife every morning. 4th bedroom is separate structure at end of pool for a more private guest room. Furnishings and finishes nice and clean but not luxurious (Linens/Bedding were very good). Master bath/shower is custom and noteworthy and overall a good remodel of an older home. Exterior space quite nice and privacy excellent. Mountain views and very lush tropical landscape. Peace and quiet unrivaled here. We have rented in the fancier/newer communities and consider this an excellent value and good trade for location versus age or style of property. We look forward to returning and would recommend the property.

Owner response: The pool is brand new as of January 2010 and is perfect with the surrounding landscaping which is 18 months old and has now achieved total privacy.. It is feeling more and more like Bali! We have upgraded the living room with new white leather sofas and new furnishings in the Casita...including a massage table and desk/office space.

About the owner: This photo shows a favorite place to sit in the yard. I recovered completely from fibromyalgia by spending 1 month in this desert area, inspiring us to buy this house. The air quality, the mountains and endless sunshine make this place a haven for health and pleasure. I love this house because it is open to the outdoors, has a backyard full of hummingbirds and birds of paradise and jasmine flowers. This location is a fabulous place to write and get out of the cold. Because of the 125 golf courses, weather, pool, spa and landscaping we look forward to retiring.
