                      About the owner: We love exploring in the desert and hiking We love the architecture and the history of the home. The house is modernism at it's best. Clean lines and walls of glass. It is very peaceful and quiet with views of the mountains and the house is extremely comfortable with quality beds and fine linens.

                      Why the Owner Chose Twin Palms:
                      We love the neighborhood. We can easily walk a couple of blocks to Kofi coffeshop or the trendy Ace Hotel. We can also walk to the smoke tree shopping area for great resturants-- the best Vegan Resturant in town. Also authentic Vietnamese Resturant and new pizza and pasta. Close to everything yet very quiet neighborhood.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      One of the best things about our house is that it is so quiet. Three large bedrooms and three baths.
