Modern Hillside Retreat is on a protected cul de sac nestled close to the San Jacinto Mountain Range on the South end of Palm Springs. It's typically wind-free due to the protection of the mountains. The Mesa is an established and vibrant neighborhood of about 180 unique homes with an interesting history. It is strictly a residential neighborhood except for the Moorten Botanical Garden founded by the first desert's horticulturalist.

There are a variety of architectural styles in the Mesa: Spanish, Adobe, California Ranch and Mid-Century Modern. Fabulous examples include: Donald Wexler's Butterfly-Style homes, Alexander homes and the nearby 1930's 'Ship of the Desert' home. Local celebrities include: Barry Manilow, Suzanne Somers, Trina Turk, Herman Wouk.

The Mesa is a neighborhood with diverse and friendly residents who love their slice of pardise in the Palm Springs desert while relaxing, walking, interacting and enjoying its beauty.

Note: Google Map image is NOT updated!

Golf: This home is just 5 minutes away from many fabulous golf courses including Indian Canyons Golf Club (North and South courses), Canyon Estates Golf Club, Mesquite Country Club and Tahquitz Creek Golf Course. 10 minutes away in Cathedral City are Cimarron Golf Club and Cathedral Canyon Country Club. Within 30 minutes are country clubs in Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, Indian Wells and La Quinta. There are over 120 golf courses in the greater Coachella Valley to choose from and experience.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We live in a cooler often chilly climate in Northern California. Palm Springs offers us a place to switch gears, warm our bones and provides us a delightful environment to engage nature and enjoy the many enlivening activites in the desert.

Why the Owner Chose Mesa:
We have been traveling to Palm Springs with good friends who owned a home in the desert since 2001. We were excited to find a home in a natural desert setting that we could renovate, enjoy and share with others!
