Magnesia Falls Cove house description

This Mid Century Ranch gem sits on an estate sized lot nestled into one the most desirable neighborhoods in the Palm Springs area, Magnesia Falls Cove in Rancho Mirage. All of the amenities for desert relaxation are here. Although you will feel like you are in your own private desert retreat, shopping, restaurants, spas, movie theaters, hiking trails, and golf can all be found within one mile of this property.

The main house has three bedrooms, two baths, and an open floor plan. The detached, fully functioning casita sits poolside surrounded by a private, sun drenched, backyard with captivating 360 degree mountain and valley views.

Enjoy complete backyard privacy while lounging by the heated pool, working on your tan, or relaxing in the shade of the patio that runs the length of the house. Practice your short game on our 5 hole putting green and chipping areas. Play horseshoes on our regulation length horseshoe pit. Maybe a game of bocci ball?

The kitchen, dining room, TV room, and lounge area all flow into each other creating a communal environment great for entertaining family and friends. A fully furnished kitchen and bbq are available for your culinary endeavors.

The Master bedroom has its own bathroom and shower and a walk in closet. One guest room has a King sized bed and the other has 2 full size beds. Every room has a flat screen TV with cable. The detached Casita has a queen size bed, bathroom, kitchenette, TV, and AC unit.

In the evening gather around the fire pit or sit in the hot tub and enjoy the 360 degree view of the San Jacinto Mountains and Coachella Valley. Appreciate magnificent star gazing unobstructed by street lights or telephone poles.

Need a break from golf and lounging by the pool? The River is walking distance from the house and the acclaimed El Paseo shopping district is a short drive away. There are great hiking trails nearby for all levels of hikers. If your lucky you may spot a family of Bighorn Sheep, the symbol of Rancho Mirage.

For the Snowbirds. The large circular driveway connects to our large back gates to an area that can accommodate a '40 RV, with functioning clean out!

Please see link to more photos below rate details.

Look forward to hearing from you :)

PS: We are pet friendly on a case by case basis. There will be a pet cleaning fee added. Absolutely NO cats, sorry.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: Both Dan & John are Los Angeles natives. Growing up in the small beach community of Manhattan and Redondo Beach Ca. Dan is in real estate development and property management, while John is a location scout for the film industry. Going to the desert with our family and friends for a quick weekend get away has been therapeutic in so many ways. Book a weekend, a week, or even a month and see how this home and all its amenities can change your life :)

                  Why the Owner Chose Magnesia Falls Cove:
                  Our love of golf and the peaceful desert ambience drew us to this neighborhood. The property if far enough from the 111 to avoid traffic noise but close enough to walk to The River for dinner, drinks, or a movie. When we are not renting we are here golfing. hiking, and enjoying all the desert has to offer.
