Joshua Tree house description

Welcome to Jackrabbit Wash! Thanks for coming by.

If you are looking for a respite from the rigors of modern life, you owe it to yourself to kick up your feet at Jackrabbit Wash. Unwind in the jacuzzi, take a dip in the pool, curl up by the fireplace, sleep in late, bask in the stillness and silence. Relax.

The setting is sublimely beautiful: vast expanses of sun-soaked open desert; constellation-filled, pitch-black night skies; and unusual flora and fauna abound. Seasonally you may see jackrabbit, bobcat, desert tortoise, coyote, antelope squirrel, lizards, quail, roadrunner, and many other species of birds.

Jackrabbit Wash has 1600 square feet of interior space and it sits on 2.5 private acres with a view of Joshua Tree National Park. The park itself is a ten minute drive from the house. The house has one bedroom, two full baths, a den/office, and a large 'great' room (kitchen/dining/living room). The kitchen is well-equipped with new stainless steel appliances and there is a full compliment of cookware and place settings. There is a patio and a deck directly off of the great room and there is a more private patio directly off of the bedroom.

The main attraction around here is Joshua Tree National Park and it is well worth a visit to experience the otherworldly splendor of the park. Other local attractions include Pappy and Harriet's (a famed roadhouse with great food and music), Pioneertown, the Integratron, High Desert Test Sites, and the Noah Purifoy Outdoor Art Museum.

We hope that your visit to the desert is a wonderful and unforgettable experience and we hope that you consider Jackrabbit Wash to be your home away from home. For more information please contact us or visit our website at jackrabbitwash.com. Happy travels and thanks for coming by! :)

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About the owner: I am a residential designer and builder currently sitting for the Architectural Registration Exam here in California, after which I will be a licensed architect. I also own and manage Jackrabbit Wash.

              Why the Owner Chose Joshua Tree:
              I designed and built this passive solar house by myself over a span of nearly eight years. There were no contractors, subs, or helpers. This was my first project after graduating with a Master in Architecture degree in 2002. Construction began in 2004 and was completed in 2012.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The desert landscape is sublime. Whether viewing the expansive landscape from the patio during the day or viewing the incredible starry skies while swimming in the pool at night, this house and its environs provide the tranquility and stillness required as an antidote to the often hectic rhythms of modern life.
