Private Homes house description

BIGHORN VIEW ESTATE

Your Vacation has been hard-earned so don't waste it by staying somewhere that doesn't have everything! Nothing is worse than getting somewhere only to find that you are miles away from the attractions you want to enjoy and spending half your time in the back of a cab. Or worse yet, spending extra money at the Spa or Hotel because you don't have a hot-tub or quiet place to relax in your room. Bighorn View Estate is a one-acre Private Estate that has so much to do, you may never leave. But if you choose to, you are within walking distance to some of the best Restaurants and attractions the Desert has to offer.

At Bighorn View Estate you can play tennis on your own private tennis court, and you won't get 'blown away' by a sandy desert Scirocco. That's because the Magnesia Falls Cove is one of the few coves protected from the wind on 3 sides by the lovely San Jacinto Mountains. Take a swim in the private swimming pool, or relax in your secluded hot-tub, resting just outside your Master Bedroom. Don't forget, you have a full kitchen, so maybe staying in for the night and pay-per-viewing a movie is the way to go. If you choose to invite some friends over, there is no better place to entertain. Guests can be screened at your own Private iron gates. Then you can greet them as they come up the 25 foot wide stairway to the Estate entrance. Try that at your Hotel!

And if you decide to go out, try a leisurely walk under the stars down to the River Shops and Restaurants. The newest and most beautiful outdoor attraction Rancho Mirage has to offer, boasting Restaurants, shopping, and movie theaters. In fact, there are an amazing 49 restaurants located within a 1mile radius of Bighorn View Estate. 91 Restaurants in a 3mile radius. There is no better location to be in all the Desert.

Don't have regrets after your next vacation, you have worked too hard for it. Don't spend half the vacation getting lost on Cab rides. Forget the yucky public pool at the hotel and over-priced room service. Do it right and you will have the best experience possible at Bighorn View Estate!


P.S. Oh yeah, I almost forgot, Use the Bighorn View Estate for your next Family Reunion, Group meeting, or Girls Getaway! Compared to renting a block of rooms at a local hotel, it can end up costing about half the price, and yet has so much more to offer!

Happy Vacationing!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: I have spent half my life in the Desert and half in beautiful Santa Barbara. I currently live in Santa Barbara with my lovely wife and three boys. Life is always interesting with a full house and 'getting away' to the Desert is a great way to 'recharge the batteries'. The kids love it down there and Grandma loves the fact that her Grandkids are in town quite frequently now. After 16 years as a Financial Advisor, I have been blessed with the ability to buy this 'one-of-a-kind' Estate.

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                      It has taken 20 years but I have finally arrived back in Rancho Mirage, just one block away from the home I grew up in! I was born in Rancho Mirage and spent many Birthdays as a kid at Bighorn View Estate, as my best friend lived there and had the same Birthday as I did. When the Estate came up for sale, it was clearly Destiny, and I had to buy it. I hope you can share in the enjoyment my family has had there over the years. Happy Vacationing!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Bighorn View Estate has all the amenities I need to enjoy doing my favorite things. Wake up and swim laps in the pool. Head out for an amazing hike up The Magnesia Falls. If I am lucky, see a few Bighorn Sheep on the ridge. Later in the day, a 'friendly' game of Doubles Tennis on our tennis court....Then its cocktail hour. Sit out on the back patio and watch the sun set slowly over the beautiful mountains...Head inside and Pay-per-view a Classic movie and then jump in the hot tub and relax. What a great way to end the day! Oh yeah, the central location is perfect. Just 15 minutes from La Quinta and 15 minutes from Palm Springs and Palm Springs Airport!
