Private Homes house description

Welcome to paradise! This custom built luxury estate is located just minutes from downtown Palm Springs. With four spacious bedrooms, this 3,000 square foot home is situated on an enclosed three quarter acre lot providing complete privacy. This estate provides all the modern amenities, comforts and elegant appointments. Views of the San Jacinto Mountains from the back yard are breathtaking!

When you enter this residence, the sound of the waterfall feature is sure to calm your nerves. You will feel a sense of openness entering the living room as you view the unbelievable pool and backyard looking through the vanishing pocket doors that merge the indoor and outdoor living! The living room contains a step down bar complete with sink/refrigerator/icemaker and barstools. A leather sofa, a 50' LCD TV and a surround sound system completes this beautiful entrance. A formal dining room with seating for up to eight people is next to the living room.


The private backyard contains one of the largest free-form salt water pools in Palm Springs! It is surrounded by lush landscaping including an array of palm trees, queen palms, mesquite trees and grass. Features include a beach entry, tanning ledge, bench seating, a raised spa, multiple spillways, a double-sided waterfall, and multi-color lighting. Additionally, there are five bar stools inside the pool next to a swim up fire pit. This is truly a phenomenal pool!

Also in the backyard is a sunken beach sand volleyball pit. There is a full basketball court and a three-hole putting green. A large fire pit with bench seating accommodates ten people and is a great place to relax and have a glass of wine while taking in the view of the mountains. There is also a BBQ island with a 52' gas grill with additional components.

The 720 sq. ft. covered entertainment area in the backyard contains a cocktail bar, refrigerator, ice cooler, sink, TV, and Kegorator. Fourteen barstools surround the granite top counter.

This vacation home is perfect for an array of functions including photo and movie shoots, weddings, corporate events/retreats, extended rentals or simply a relaxing getaway with friends or family.

                          Amazing backyard paradise at this resort-like estate 03/17/2010

                          VRBO Bear stayed here:


                          When I arrived at this sprawling Palm Springs estate, I knew that I was in for a “beary” relaxing weekend. I took one step inside and I was greeted by the trickling sounds of a lovely wall fountain— just like my home in the woods! Ahhhh, peace at last.

                          The home is 4 bedroom, 3 ½ bathroom house so it’s plenty big for you and your cubs in tow. Everyone can find something to enjoy, whether it’s cooking up a feast in the chef’s kitchen, sitting by the fireplace in the living room, or exploring the backyard wonderland. I personally went straight to the back and enjoyed a game of beach volleyball with the family.

                          After the game, the cubs jumped into the gorgeous freshwater pool and that was my cue to hibernate. ‘Bear’ in mind, we had an extremely long flight, so I was quite jetlagged! I sank into the king size bed and the surround sound system lulled me to sleep. What astounded me most about this house was how cozy and warm it is considering its size— the cubs could be on one side playing while the rest of us were on the other side enjoying the fireplace.

                          This property truly has something for everyone and we couldn’t recommend it highly enough.
