Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We're Doug and Joe. We feel in love with Palm Springs over 20 years ago. Doug is a college professor, and Joe is an entrepreneur and certified green building professional.

Why the Owner Chose Other Palm Springs Properties:
We first discovered the Cathedral City Cove neighborhood almost 20 years ago. Over the years, we rented vacation homes in Palm Springs, Cathedral City and Rancho Mirage, and we found that homes in 'The Cove' area of Cathedral City were on bigger lots, with better views, at better values. Also, regular Palm Springs visitors know that the desert wind can be very bad at times, especially in the Spring. North Palm Springs is the windiest area, but sometimes the wind spreads to Central & South Palm Springs. Protected by a circle of the Santa Rosa Mountains, 'The Cove' is one of the least windy neighborhoods in the entire desert. We are situated between Palm Springs and Rancho Mirage. We are only about 10 minutes from downtown Palm Springs and 5 minutes to Rancho Mirage.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
'Green Indigo' was extensively remodeled in 2010 utilizing state-of-the-art green building standards and techniques. Waste was minimized, while re-use and recycling was emphasized. The home demonstrates many eco/green features. Here's just a sampling of what you will experience in your stay at 'Green Indigo': * Energy Star appliances * Solar thermal pool & spa heating * Salt water pool w/LED color lighting * Energy efficient pool pump & low-NOX natural gas pool/spa heater * Green cleaning products * Dramatically less exposure than normal to indoor chemicals/contaminants (e.g., toxic formaldehyde and VOCs) * 100% recycled glass tile in bathrooms * High recycled content stainless steel used in kitchen * Recycled content carpet tiles in dining area and bedrooms * Extensive use of quality, vintage/modern furniture * Most furniture & cabinetry made from sustainable woods * High efficiency, yet high performance, WaterSense-certified toilets * Low flow, yet high performance, faucets and shower heads * Double pane, low-e windows and doors, south-side with special desert glazing and/or shade protection * High efficiency, refrigerant-free desert evaporative cooler in addition to EnergyStar-installed air conditioner * High efficiency, top rated front loading washer/dryer * Exterior is mostly paint-free stucco with impregnated color * Interior walls feature paint-free venetian plaster or no-VOC paints * Drought-tolerant, native landscaping * Extra insulation (including 85% recycled demin UltraTouch) We were careful to chose green products that would meet or exceed all of your expectations of design, comfort and function. We don't like compromises. What good is a stylish sofa that's uncomfortable? or a water efficient toilet that requires two flushes to work?! We're happy with the result, and we hope you are, too.
