Movie Colony East (formerly Ruth Hardy Park) house description

This sophisticated and high style home, known as 'AMIGO,' is showcased on the cover of the 2009 Home and Design Issue of The Bottom Line Magazine. It is located less than a mile from the center of charming and beautiful downtown Palm Springs. AMIGO is walking distance to the convention center, the casino, or many restaurants, stores, and coffee shops. AMIGO is perfect for a get-away from your life at home - but is also equipped with WIFI, as well as an all in one printer/copier and fax machine, for those who need to do some business while enjoying the sunny relaxing desert lifestyle. The phone service comes with free long distance throughout the continental united states for calls as well as faxes.

Black slate floors and white beamed ceilings create a perfect backdrop for this art deco inspired home that was completely designed and furnished by 'Aesthetics.' The custom upholstered and professionally designed living room with fire and ice fireplace provides a great conversation and entertaining area. White raised panel cabinets, stainless steel GE profile appliances, 5 burner gas cook-top, under-cabinet lighting and black granite slab counters create a fully stocked and gorgeous cook's kitchen.

Imported pillow-edged white porcelain tiles line the walls to the ceiling in the main bathroom. The custom upholstered drapery, 1930's nickel plated wall sconces, and antique bamboo framed mirror make it a posh and pampering place to get ready for your day of shopping, afternoon game of tennis, or your night on the town.

** City of Palm Springs Transient Occupancy Registration Permit # 46870000

The family room, with a 42' flat screen wired with surround sound, opens up to the manicured yard with sparkling pool. The yard is block walled and gated for complete privacy and is lined with mature Ficus trees and accent lighting for entertaining day and night.

Both bedrooms are done in black and white with pops of color, chrome and crystal sconces, TV's with VCR and DVD, and sliding glass doors with access to the private pool yard. All rooms in the home, as well as the pool yard, are wired with different zones for the stereo system. Stereo plays AM/FM, CD's, or you can plug in your own i-pod or mp3 player.

Nothing has been left out or overlooked in appointing this centrally located posh vacation home. Grab your bags and come experience 'AMIGO' for yourself!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2004

                          About the owner: I am a freelance architecture and interiors photographer from Seattle. I came to Palm Springs 17 years ago and fell in love with it. I designed and furnished 'AMIGO' from top to bottom when we gutted and completely remodeled it 8 years ago. I am a perfectionist with an eye for detail, and I scoured the country for all the pieces, hardware, light fixtures, and artwork that all came together as 'AMIGO'

                          Why the Owner Chose Movie Colony East (formerly Ruth Hardy Park):
                          I have owned and rented vacation rentals in Palm Springs for over 16 years now. I pride myself in knowing that the home has everything it could possibly need for someone to come to Palm Springs and thoroughly enjoy themselves and relax - without worrying about anything... I specifically chose Ruth Hardy Park / Movie Colony East so that I would have the close proximity to downtown, the casino, and all the restaurants - yet be far enough out from the mountains so that I wouldn't lose the afternoon/evening sun too soon. Best of both worlds...

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          I am a solar panel - I thrive off of the sun - which is precisely why I chose Palm Springs to purchase a vacation home. Amigo has floor to ceiling windows in the family room that is flooded with light and provides an unparalleled mountain view at the same time. I love that the yard is completely walled and gated so that I can enjoy the pool and yard in complete privacy. And I also love that I am but a brisk one mile walk from the center of downtown Palm Springs - where I walk for morning coffee and afternoon cocktails...
