Movie Colony East (formerly Ruth Hardy Park) house description

This stunning midcentury pool home from the 60s has been expanded and completely renovated in 2008 with a stainless steel gourmet kitchen, travertine floors and eco friendly landscaping all around. Enjoy hip Palm Springs in this designer home with two fireplaces, a huge living room and stunning mountain views, all on almost a quarter of an acre with palms and fruit trees in the back. A 14' x 24' salt-water pool is perfect for a swim in the morning. If you like design of the 60's, Eames, Knoll and a modern artwork collection, this is your place to get away. The 1,800 sq ft house is located in a quiet cul de sac nearby Ruth Hardy Park, one of the most spectacular areas of old Palm Springs. The park offers public tennis courts, bike trails, picnic areas, volley ball courts and much more.
Also, good to know: the new Riviera Hotel is just a few blocks away. The Riviera has undergone a 70M renovation and is a great spot for poolside dinner or a cocktail Mad Men style. Worth a visit!

                              This stunning midcentury pool home from the 60s has been expanded and completely renovated in 2008 with a stainless steel gourmet kitchen, travertine floors and eco friendly landscaping all around. Enjoy hip Palm Springs in this designer home with two fireplaces, a huge living room and stunning mountain views, all on almost a quarter of an acre with palms and fruit trees in the back. A 14' x 24' salt-water pool is perfect for a swim in the morning. If you like design of the 60's, Eames, Knoll and beautiful modern artwork, this is your place to get away. The 1,800 sq ft house is located in a quiet cul de sac nearby Ruth Hardy Park, one of the most spectacular areas of old Palm Springs. The park offers public tennis courts, bike trails, picnic areas, volley ball courts and much more.

                              Also, good to know: the new Riviera Hotel is just a few blocks away. The Riviera has undergone a 70M renovation and is a great spot for poolside dinner or a cocktail. Worth a visit!

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2008

                              About the owner: As a designer, I am a big fan of Palm Springs. I always loved the beauty and serenity of the desert. It's a magic place, far enough from the big city to relax and unwind - and still only 2 hours away from it. My life is very busy and hectic, and this is the place where I recharge my batteries. Two hours from LA and I'm in a lush sunny mid century paradise with spectacular views and cocktails by the pool at night under starry skies.

                              Why the Owner Chose Movie Colony East (formerly Ruth Hardy Park):
                              Ruth Hardy Park area to me is one of the prime areas in Palm Springs. Almost every house can tell a story. Lucille Ball lived around the block, Cary Grant had a big mansion a few streets from here. The center is the beautiful park, an oasis where people come for a walk with their pets, or to play tennis, racquetball, or just relax in the shade of the old Mesquite trees.
