Property description

My Aunt and Uncle homesteaded this Cahuilla Hills land in 1948 and built the cabin, affectionately known as 'The Bird Cage'. There was no electricity or water at that time; now we have both, as well as heat and A/C. The Homestead is a little less than 500 sq. ft. with a 'million dollar view' of the Coachella Valley, surrounding Santa Rosa Mountains, and Bighorn Golf Club. It's one of the last homesteads in our area. It sits atop a hill in Cahuilla Hills, an area now know for million dollar homes on minimum 5 acre lots; however, the location is only 2 miles from downtown Palm Desert.

The Birdcage has one bedroom with a new queen sized bed, a bathroom with a good size shower (with a window), and a living/dining/kitchen room - all with beautiful views. There is a large patio which is partially covered as well as a sunny area. It's a perfect spot for drinking your morning coffee while the sun rises over the mountains, gazing at hawks soaring overhead during the day, or watching the Coachella Valley transition from gold to pink as the sun sets behind you. And before you turn in at night, the expansive inky sky beholds a canopy of twinkling stars.

With its proximity to nature, The Birdcage captures the ambiance of life in the rustic West, yet all the modern attractions on El Paseo and beyond are just a 5 minute drive down the hill.

Our family owns 4 homes on the surrounding acres spread out from one another. At the entrance to the property we have a beautiful stand of date palm trees that we raise. Privacy is secured by electronic gates and it's a very safe area.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1973

About the owner: I am the 5th generation living on this wonderful ranch. We grow date palms and organic vegetables.

Why the Owner Chose Cahuilla Hills:
I wanted to preserve this lovely property for generations to come; an example of how living used to be.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
It's fun to stay here, relaxing, exhilarating at the same time. You're close to hiking, town and all the amenities of the area, yet in this quiet beautiful setting. Linens dried by the desert sun. The city light view is so spectacular that you won't want to go to bed!! Spring wildflowers are covering the property. Ask about your dog. Small to medium dogs over two years old, well trained are okay. We are dog lovers!
