Movie Colony East (formerly Ruth Hardy Park) house description

Please refer to PS Albert Frey, when you call about this house. You’ll find the interior design of this property is a perfect mash-up between classic mid-century style reflecting clean sleek lines juxtaposed with modern day luxuries required of today’s discerning guests. The floor-to-ceiling walls of glass windows & sliding doors brighten the living spaces with generous natural light and take advantage of the abundant Palm Springs sun and beautiful mountain vistas. The open and spacious layout provides an ideal environment for easy entertaining or relaxing with family and friends. The rooms are artfully appointed with comfort and style at every turn. The furnishings are a combination of vintage mid-century Danish teak as well as 21st century modern classics from Design Within Reach, Herman Miller & Knoll. Bold colorful accents contrast with clean white walls and white tile floors throughout.

The expansive living area uses one open space to connect sitting, lounging and dining areas while flowing smoothly to the private backyard oasis. Enjoy watching a movie on the 46” LED flat screen HDTV with Blu-ray DVD player or listening to your favorite music on the IPOD stereo while gazing at the magnificent western mountain views of San Jacinto & the sparkling pool. There are a variety of options for both casual and formal dining. You may choose the informal breakfast table for 4, the elegant expandable Danish teak table with seating for 8 + or dine under the stars on the glass outdoor dining table with seating for 6. All the accoutrements are provided such as tablecloth, placemats, cloth napkins, plenty of dinnerware and lots of votive candles to set the mood.

The kitchen faces west overlooking the pool area with new stainless kitchen hood & stove, double porcelain sinks, white tile counters & floors, window garden box, ample pantry and cupboards, refrigerator with automatic ice maker, microwave, and much more. There is no wasted space in this small yet fully stocked kitchen outfitted with brand new pots, pans, dinnerware, barware & cooking utensils.

The crown jewel of this property is the large outdoor living space. Lush desert gardens abound every inch of the grounds filled with cactus, towering palm trees, citrus, ficus hedges and many varieties of succulent plants. By day, indulge in a refreshing dip in the heated saltwater pool, soak in the sun and terrific mountain views from the sleek modern lounge chairs or relax under an umbrella or covered patio with a cool drink. By night, enjoy cocktails and conversation while seated around a fun modern gas fire pit, perfect for cozying up to on a brisk desert evening. Or, check out the 5 person jetted spa that can be just as soothing under the canopy of twinkling stars. A natural gas stainless steel BBQ with plenty of alfresco seating and pool floats complete the perfect outdoor experience.

All three bedrooms of this Palm Springs vacation home have glass doors leading to the outdoor patios and gardens, ceiling fans, TVs, modern light fixtures and brand new furniture and bedding. The master suite features a brand new temper pedic CA King mattress, high quality linens, 32” LED flat screen HDTV with Blu-ray DVD player, IPOD doc and glass french doors that open to the outdoor patio with spa tub. The en suite bath offers a sunken bathtub & shower, dual vanities, skylight, new fixtures combined comfortably with vintage ones, brand new high quality towels, abundant closet space and loads of storage and shelves.

              Location

              Car: Recommended

              This property is nestled in the charming Movie Colony East neighborhood, home to Hollywood celebrities like Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope, Lucille Ball and Bing Crosby. Within walking distance to the Palm Springs village center and beautiful Ruth Hardy Park, it’s the perfect locale to experience all the attractions that PS has to offer including day spas, golfing, boutiques, museums, art galleries, dining, coffee houses, hiking, biking, horseback riding, gambling, bars & night clubs. You will also be about 1 mile from Ralph’s grocery store, Starbucks, Power Fitness Gym, Rite Aid, PS Public Library, Desert Memorial Hospital, Spa Resort Casino and lots of casual dining.

              International guests will find Palm Springs to be an ideal 'home base' for daytrip excursions to Southern California. Enjoy nearby Joshua Tree National Monument (an extraordinary national park set in the desert) and theme parks within a 2 hour drive including Disneyland (Anaheim), Sea World (San Diego) & Knotts Waterpark.

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About: I fell in love with Palm Springs after visiting several times on vacation and decided to purchase my own desert hideaway. My primary residence is in Chicago and one day I hope to spend a lot more time in Palm Springs. Until then, I hope guests will find the warmth, solace and comfort that I appreciate when visiting this relaxing desert getaway. Enjoy your stay! (This property is managed by Globe Homes and Condos)

              Why Movie Colony East (formerly Ruth Hardy Park):
              The reason I chose the Movie Colony East neighborhood is for its large private lots, abundance of charm, mountain views, scenic streets, and close proximity to all major attractions. Within a short walking distance you'll find coffee houses, live theatre, restaurants, boutiques, Spa Resort Casino, art galleries and much more. Another great feature this property location has to offer is its proximity to Ruth Hardy Park. A beautiful public park with tennis courts, grass vollyball, basketball courts, picnic tables & grills, children's playground, walking paths and rose gardens.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The qualities of this unique home that make it so special are the authentic mid-century architectural design and cool retro vibe! It's a 1946 Albert Frey design with vintage furnishings and modern day amenities. Truly one of a kind! Whether you are floating aimlessly in the pool, gazing at the beautiful starry sky from the hot tub, or sipping cocktails around the gas fire pit you will find this Retro Retreat a relaxing break from your worldly cares.
