Cathedral Canyon house description

Gorgeous 'resort' style house on a half acre of manicured grounds and pool that will keep you entertained day or night. Located in an almost secret canyon high above the valley floor in a very desirable neighborhood.
There are five bedrooms and four bathrooms.
The rooms are all average to large in size and are well appointed with quality bedding. The master bedroom has a King size bed, 3 rooms have queen size beds, one room has two twin size.
The kitchen is light and bright looks out at the pool, and is big enough to have people hanging around while you cook. The kitchen has gas cooking, dishwasher , refrigerator/freezer , ice maker, microwave, toaster, blender, 2 coffee makers and a host of gadgets and cookware .
Two eating areas, one inside seats 8 , the other on the patio that seats 12.
A comfortable living room, with soft leather furniture and a 50 inch
flat screen TV. There are tv's in each bedroom as well.

The custom swimming pool has a 45 foot lap lane, a beach entry and is surrounded by natural granite boulders. A raised spa with a waterfall spillway.

There is also a 7' waterfall fountain feature adjacent to the pool.

We are close enough to make it easy to go to either Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage and Palm Desert for meals, entertainment and activities. Central Cathedral City is just a few minutes away and offers an IMAX Theater, a multi-screen theater,
miniature golf, shopping (Target, Trader Joe's etc.) and some really great dinning...try ' La Tablita' for a great Mexican meal and margarita for a real bargain and delicious food! Also a great Sushi place, Dragon Sushi
If you like to hike and explore natural trails, you can literally walk out the front door and hit the trails that access the beautiful
'Santa Rosa Mountains National Monument'. There are miles and miles of trails and canyons to explore. It is home to an
endangered species of Bighorn Sheep, and if you are lucky, you may spot one or more of these magnificent creatures.
Easy to get to town, yes..but many of our guests just want to stay at the house and 'hang out' ! It is so quiet , tucked away above the valley floor, you don't hear the incoming airplane or highway traffic.
A perfect 'HIDEAWAY' , for those that don't want to be disturbed.
The landscape and property walls assure a secure and PRIVATE
stay. There are no tour buses through the area.
Our rates include all tax, fees, cleaning fee and pool/spa heat.

                          Year Purchased: 1990

                          About the owner: I moved to the desert in 1985 and fell in love with the mountains and the wide-open spaces here, not to mention the unbeatable sunshine! This is the place I call home. I have spent many years creating this place and am delighted to have the opportunity to share it with you.

                          Why the Owner Chose Cathedral Canyon:
                          The location is unbeatable for quiet and a sense of security without having to go through gates. The extra large lot affords the space for an extensive garden to relax in and wander through.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          I have been in the area for over 25 yrs and I can honestly say there is no neighborhood that compares when it comes to seclusion,privacy and serenity! It is so quiet here I can listen to the birds sing every morning. Airplanes and highways are out of ears reach! The mountains are literally right out the door making hiking and exploring a real treat. Nothing like a soak in the spa/jacuzzi after a nice climb in the mountains.
