Norman house description

Behind the guarded/gated community of the Greg Norman Course, which features 24 hour patrolled security, is this luxurious, executive home situated for northern exposure on a huge, over-sized lot, the largest in the Greg Norman Community, overlooking the 9th fairway. If you’re a golfer, this is the vacation home for you! PGA West includes six (6) world class courses and more than 100 other desert courses are just minutes away. Enjoy the country’s best weather and panoramic views of the incredible Santa Rosa & Chocolate Mountains from your patio. PGA West features miles of immaculate, quiet palm-lined streets perfect for cycling, inline skating or evening strolls… all just minutes from world class shopping and more than 100 restaurants.

At approximately 3500 sq. ft., this three bedroom, three and a half bath home, including a private casita with its own full bathroom, is sure to impress. This luxurious home is located within walking distance to the Empire & El Dorado Polo Fields and all the annual music festivals: Phish, Stagecoach, and Coachella Festival are very local and extremely close by. This spacious, executive, home-away-from-home is a perfect example of country club living at its finest.

You’ll feel like you are in your own private 5-star resort. Upon entering, you will be greeted with a beautiful fountain, a private courtyard patio with plenty of outdoor seating, a ceiling fan and an outdoor, gas fireplace. Perfect for outdoor entertaining. The fully equipped, all stainless steel gourmet kitchen features granite slab countertops and bar counter seating for six (6) and an additional breakfast nook which seats four (4), featuring a full view of the golf course and backyard. The luxurious master suite has a king size bed, wood, plantation shutters, ceiling fan, oversized plasma television, spacious master bath with separate shower, whirlpool tub, his and her sinks with a separate vanity area, and a walk-in closet. The master room also features its own French Doors leading to the backyard. Two other guest suites each include queen beds, full private baths, plasma televisions and ceiling fans. The living room provides plenty of seating with two, full size leather sofas and a matching chair and ottoman. To cozy it up, this room also features oversized, adjustable, paddle, ceiling fans, French Doors leading to the back patio and outdoor dining area, and an oversized, gas, masonry fireplace for your added convenience. The separate family room includes a full size leather sleeper. Also included is a separate laundry room fully equipped with newer front loader machines and a laundry sink. The 40' pebble-tech salt water pool spotlights an elevated, attached, hot tub with a stone, cascading fountain. Your backyard is oversized and fully equipped with an exquisite, outdoor dining area which comfortably seats eight (8), overhead ceiling fans, area heaters if needed during the cooler months, a complete outdoor kitchen with bar seating, a gas fire pit, plenty of lounging/tanning space, an abundance of lawn area, professionally landscaped grounds and a panoramic views. Here you will enjoy plenty of sunshine during the day and intimate sunsets at dusk.

Long considered the premier address in the Palm Springs area, La Quinta first gained fame as a hideaway for many of the stars of “Hollywood’s Golden Era.” Now bustling with shops, galleries and an abundance of restaurants, the village has retained its serenity and old world charm.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2006

          About the owner: Gary is an engineering contractor who works very hard in the bay area. I manage commercial, as well as residential properties. We have five kids, two grandchildren, two dachshunds and a chocolate lab. In our lives, it's all about family and good times. We work hard and look forward to our time in La Quinta. We very much enjoy the car show/auction held at the Spa Resort in February and November every year. Gary collects classic and exotic cars as his hobby and me, well, I am the 'core' of the family, enjoying most sharing birthdays, holidays and just good times with our family and dear friends.

          Why the Owner Chose Norman:
          We have both loved everything about the Palm Springs area for years. Gary played polo at the Empire Polo Field and El Dorado Polo Club for 15 years so commuting at least two weekends per month made it very easy to purchase a 'home away from home.' This is his third vacation home in the Palm Springs area. We love the surreal atmosphere, the beauty of the mountains and the pleasant people we meet everywhere we go. There are so many restaurants to choose from which always makes fine dining an enjoyable experience while surrounded by exquisite ambiance.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          We enjoy the Street Fair located at College of the Desert. This features many different vendors selling everything you can an imagine. There is also quite a variety of food vendors as well with live music. The Palm Springs Follies is always a treat and fascinating to watch. It is always most relaxing to enjoy days laying by the pool, listening to music, enjoying family & friends and using our outdoor bbq/kitchen. We often find ourselves in the pool until 6-7:00pm, having cocktails, meeting golfers as they pass by in their carts and making new friends. Our outdoor dining room with overhead ceiling fans is a great place to dine, play cards/games and visit while watching the sunset. Life doesn't get much better than this!! ;) We hope you choose to stay at our home and you, too, will see why we love this area so much.
