Sundance Resort townhome description

It is early morning and the sun is just beginning to rise. As the warming rays peek over the wall which protects your private pool and patio, you open the wide sliding glass doors to your bedroom and slip easily into the heated spa… no bathing suit is necessary. As you sip your morning coffee and listen to the songs of the local birds, your thoughts are far, far away from the demands of home. You ask yourself, 'Can time stand still?' Indeed why would anyone wish to leave this paradise?
‘The 19th Hole’ is an 1850 sq. foot town-home that has been transformed by its new pool and patio and by its interior renovations with all new furnishings. It is luxurious, private, and serene. You are situated 10 minutes from the airport and from the happenings of downtown Palm Springs.

The living room has soaring cathedral ceilings and circulating fans. Its expansive sliding doors open up onto the pool and patio. It boasts a 10 foot down sofa and 2 down swivel chairs. A 50 inch HDTV sits discreetly on one wall, and on the opposite side of the marble fireplace, a desk is nuzzled in a quiet alcove.

An 8 foot Tommy Bahama dining table and 6 arm chairs provide the makings of a perfect evening. Dim the lights of the chandelier and gaze through the fronds of the jacaranda tree watching the lights of the tram on the San Jacinto mountains.

Whether you choose to cook or not, you will appreciate the flow of the kitchen. The wood cabinets are stocked with all the amenities of home. The granite counters and the top of the line appliances will please the most discerning chef. There is a natural gas Weber barbeque for your use, on the patio, adjacent to the kitchen.

Lose yourself in the four poster California king bed. It has a brand new pillow top mattress and 500 thread count bedding. Watch the late night news on the 42 inch wall mounted TV. Treat yourself to a bath in the sunken tub of the en suite marble bathroom, admiring the view of your secret garden.

Enjoy the separation of 2 twin beds or easily converted king depending on your guests preference. Top of the line pillow top mattresses and 500 thread count sheets are provided for your comfort. Enjoy the early morning rays of sunshine filtering through the attached atrium. The second full en suite bathroom is easily accessible through a pocket door.

This completely enclosed and private pool forms the crown jewel of ‘The 19th Hole’. This state of the art non-chlorinated pool has a pebble-tec surface that is not only soothing to the skin, but also to the eye. Admire the desert landscaping and watch the hummingbirds drink from the flowers around the perimeter. Sun bathe in the comfortably padded lounge chairs. Enjoy your lunch at a table for six shaded by the overhang extending from both the living room and the master bedroom. Watch the sun set over the San Jacinto mountains while sitting under the swaying palm trees. Does it get any better than this?

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: We are a couple of health care professionals who live in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. We have four children and a charming golden retriever. Although we are far from retirement, we love to visit our home in Palm Springs every quarter, to recharge and to enjoy the wonderful ambiance our home has to offer.

                  Why the Owner Chose Sundance Resort:
                  Because of our interests, Palm Springs is a natural fit for us. We love the quiet and peacefulness of the community, but also its close proximity to the amenities of downtown Palm Springs. We are challenged by the number of golf courses available for us to play, a number of which are only minutes away by car. Opportunities for hiking and enjoying the outdoors are myriad and many of the best sites are close to Sundance Resort. We like having easy access to the airport. Mostly though, we love the serene ambiance Sundance Resort has to offer.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                  Sundance Resort is a low density, quiet community. Each home has its own pool, in an enclosed private yard. Our home backs on to a 7 1/2 acre green space and is rarely used by others. We love to play on the well kept, lighted tennis courts a minute stroll from our home. Each home is large and well designed. After all, it was built for the Dallas Cowboys!
