Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

Why the Owner Chose Sommerset:
We fell in love with Palm Desert on our first visit over 15 years ago and vacationed here every year at a local Hotel. We finally decided it was time to own our own piece of the Desert. With the mountain views always in sight and so much to do nearby, once we visited this area up highway 74, we knew Mountainback/Sommerset was where we wanted to be. We continue to try and visit once a month.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Quiet community close to the mountains.
