Tennis Club house description

Historic 'San Jacinto Cottage' This beautifully restored historic 1937 California Monterey Ranch Home sits at the foot of the San Jacinto Mountains and is walled and gated for complete privacy. This lovely home was originally built by the Pershing Family, General John J. Pershing, and has long been an oasis of relaxation and solitude in the desert. Over the years it has been host to numerous celebrity guests and international events. It is rumored that George Patton would stay and visit along with Hollywood Celebrities. It is an easy five minute walk through the oldest neighborhood in Palm Springs to Downtown and all of it's shops, restaurants and Museum

The large estate has over 2700 square feet of living space and is surrounded by 1/3 of an acre of sprawling grounds. There are 4 large comfortable bedrooms each with its own private bath. Two of the bedrooms are master suites, one of which is over 450 sq. ft. The main living quarters include a large living room with a wall of glass sliding door and eat-in chef's kitchen complete with new state-of-the-art appliances. The home has been designed for indoor / outdoor living with french doors that frame the incredible mountain and/or pool views from virtually every room. The home has been extensively and lovingly remodeled and outfitted with top elegant and comfortable furnishings with early California Monterey furniture and accessories. All of the beds are premium quality outfitted with 100% cotton linens for all of the bedrooms and baths. Quality paintings and Artwork grace the walls and rooms throughout. Vintage Library and period details.

The outdoor space includes a very large and private backyard with expansive 1937 estate size 'Salt-Water' pool. It also includes a chef's barbecue and wood burning fire pit. A perfect place to view the beautiful starry nights in the desert.... There's also plenty of room for entertaining or just relaxing by the pool and enjoying your own private views of the majestic mountains.

The House is completely private and and remote yet walking distance to Downtown Palm Springs Shops and Restaurants. It is also very close to the exclusive Viceroy Hotel and the Ingleside Inn. Peace and quiet with Style and Quality. The perfect getaway...

                          Location

                          The Historic Tennis Club neighborhood is named after the prestigious Tennis Club founded in 1937. Its original circular pool was once the most photographed in the world. Spencer’s trendy restaurant continues its tradition.

                          Its surroundings form the oldest neighborhood in Palm Springs. Tucked against the San Jacinto Mountains, it extends east to Belardo with Taquitz Road on the north and Ramon Road on the south. In the 1880s it was owned by San Francisco Judge John McCallum who tried unsuccessfully to develop agriculture here. The first settlers lived in homes made of adobe, railroad ties or clapboard. The surviving McCallum adobe was moved to The Village Green and at Casa Cody stands a preserved 1910 adobe once frequented by Charlie Chaplin.

                          Later Spanish style homes were built including the 1925 O’Donnell House, now a Class I Historic Site, prominently located on the hill overlooking the neighborhood. It was built by Nellie Coffman for oilman Thomas O’Donnell who helped her finance the Desert Inn, unfortunately razed for the Fashion Plaza. Right below is the former 1927 home of Nellie Coffman’s son, Paul Roberson which is now Le Vallauris restaurant, one of the earliest Class I historic sites.

                          The area is dotted with small inns. Every December these hostelries host the popular Walk of the Inns. Class I historic inns include the Willows, located across from Le Vallauris. The Inn was once owned by Marion Davies and hosted notables like Albert Einstein.

                          Around the corner is the ranch style Casa Cody founded by Harriet Cody. She arrived in Palm Springs in 1916 in a gypsy wagon with her health seeking husband William Harold Cody, Buffalo Bill’s first cousin. This beautiful Vassar graduate started the first horse stable before opening the hotel in 1932.

                          Nearby is the Korakia Pensione, built in 1924 by painter Gordon Couts. When his young bride refused to move to Tangiers, he built her this Moroccan palace. Winston Churchill painted here. This picturesque hotel, a bohemian hangout during Couts’ days today hosts many fashion shoots.

                          Across the neighborhood is the Ingleside Inn, a former Spanish colonial estate transformed into lodging in 1940 by former Councilwoman Ruth Hardy who planted Palm Canyon’s palm trees. A traditional celebrity hang out, Ingleside’s restaurant, Melvyn’s, continues to be “in”. It features lively jam sessions each Sunday afternoon.

                          The neighborhood’s charm is its eclectic mixture of 400 homes, condos, apartments, inns and restaurants, many surrounded by historic stone walls. There is even an Indian burial ground. Being next to the Village makes it especially desirable.

                          Year Purchased: 2012

                          About the owner: We love spending time at the San Jacinto Cottage. We love collecting items that represent the Desert and Early California Furnishings. We love desert landscape paintings and art and artifacts of the Native Americans. We also, love hiking up the mountain and walking to nearby downtown shops and eateries.

                          Why the Owner Chose Tennis Club:
                          This is perfect Palm Springs home - private in every way.... with stunning views of the mountains from almost every room in the house. The Historic Tennis Club is one of the oldest and most charming neighborhoods in Palm Springs. The house is very peaceful and quiet yet it is walking distance to all of the shops and restaurants in downtown Palm Springs. It is also an easy access to hiking and nature trails at the end of the end of the street. When the sun rises or sets against the mountains, it is amazing. There is a real sense of Palm Springs History here with a beautifully restored 1937 pool and patio area for entertaining or just relaxing in the desert.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The house is extremely peaceful and quiet. The San Jacinto Cottage is built in hacienda Monterey Style where all of the rooms open up to the outside pool and patio or have beautiful mountain views. It's perfectly designed for indoor / outdoor living. The house is outfitted with our personal collection of desert landscape paintings, vintage library, and period furnishings. There is also a great eat-in chef's kitchen with top of the line appliances. The beds are all quality certa beds with 100% cotton sheets and blankets
