Borrego Springs house description

Only one home gets the honor of being the 'Jewel of Borrego' and this is it! There is simply nothing comparable. Its elegance and authenticity to the Southwest style is amazing. Here is a home that will make you smile from the moment you arrive. The pictures are great, but nothing compares to being there in person. The desert beauty, the quietness, and the peacefulness are unsurpassed.

This is the perfect place to get away from the craziness and crowdedness of the city to this lovely, clean, and beautiful desert setting. Seeing this awesome home from the outside you think wow it couldn`t get any better than this on the inside, but it does!

Even the drive into Borrego Springs is amazing, with desert views in every direction as far as one can see ... including a valley that just seems to go on forever while driving into and out of the area. As you are driving up to and onto the property you`ll gasp at the beauty of the architecture of this amazing home. It is located right by the legendary De Anza Golf Course. Here is a home that will make you smile from the moment you arrive. The pictures are great, but nothing compares to being there in person.

Upon entering the home you view the dining room, the kitchen, and the the large, lovely living room with its 16 foot high logged-beamed ceiling. There are large windows in the living room from which to enjoy the wonderful desert views. The living room has a corner fireplace, a flat screen TV, and several individual conversation areas. The kitchen is big and roomy with a large island in the center of it and it comes fully stocked.

The master bedroom's ceiling that two stories high, with small windows from which to view the mountains and the desert sky from the bed. There are also other windows, including doors leading out to the courtyard area, too. The master bedroom has a flat screen TV and a large desk if you like to read or write.

Beyond the large 200 year old Peruvian doors at the front of the home, there is a wonderful courtyard with a fountain and two casitas (separate bedrooms) each with a queen size bed. Both casitas have large bathrooms with showers). There are futons in each of the casitas. The casitas are lovely, roomy and relaxing, and are between off the courtyard, and right next to the the pool area.

When you are inside the courtyard area you almost feel as if you are in a wonderful villa in another country. The views of this desert area are amazing everywhere you look. You can sit and relax in the courtyard area, listening to the fountain, or continue on to the pool and hot tub area behind another set of double doors. Not only is the pool area great for the daytime, but it is a wonderful area to sit around and relax at night, talking and gazing at the stars.

Borrego Springs has been designated as a 'dark sky community' - meaning no city light pollution - making the view of the stars beyond comparison. It's definitely much better than a trip to the observatory!

              Location

              Borrego Springs is a 'dark sky designated' area, meaning it has the most amazing, unobstructed views of the stars at night. Just sit back on the pool chairs, relax and enjoy the view of all the stars in the sky! Anza Borrego Desert State Park is California's Largest State Park. It's sits on 600,000 acres of flat canyons and badlands. It's a snowbird's paradise. Home to 4 scenic golf courses, one of which you have golfing privileges to 'De Anza Country Club' with the rental of 'Jewel of Borrego'. Beautiful desert trails, and awesome off-roading adventures are available. Take the time to stop by the visitors center just above town to find out about the local flora and fauna, take in a geology lesson, or enjoy a short stroll to the desert pupfish pond. These pupfish are an endangered species. Borrego Palm Canyon is one of the area's most popular hikes - it's 3 miles round trip, takes about 2 hours to do, starts at the Visitor's Center, and ends at a palm oasis. You might even see some of the desert's native big horn sheep. It's also home to rare elephant trees. Don't miss the unique metal life-size sculptures of Ricardo Breceda, they are scattered along 3 square miles of the Galleta Meadows Estates, which sits along Borrego Springs Road. Cycling is a great way to see the desert and there are rental places from which to get them. For 4-Wheeling adventures check out Octillo Wells, Blair Valley, Split Valley and Sheep Canyon.
