Cathedral City house description

You deserve your own tasteful private desert oasis! All of 2300 square foot of contemporary, secluded living space anchored by warm textured furnishings in a gated community surrounded by mountain views. Yet your are never far away from sophisticated night life of Palm Springs.

Walk through the large glass portal and follow the meandering path in the private courtyard that ends in double glass doors. Open it and you step into into a 16-foot-ceilinged 'great room'. 'Ah, it is beautiful!' mutters our last guest. Look up and you see the room infused with light through clerestory windows on all sides of the room. Then, let your gaze rest on the two sided (indoor/outdoor) fireplace -which is the focal point of the room. It is beneath a 8-foot mirror and flanked on both sides by glass doors that lead to the spool, water fountain, bar-b-que, covered portico and manicured common areas beyond. For your convenience both the fireplace and spool are operated by remote control. You deserve this!

Secluded by true definition - only one neighbor on the west side, and community maintained open spaces on the both the back and east side.

Just off the separate cozy family room you will be greeted by warmer wine colors which is the motif of both the professionally decorated gourmet kitchen and family room. The kitchen comes with a large granite island for entertaining complete with wine cooler and double ovens. The family room is equipped with a 46 inch TV and cable is available. The marble topped table is large enough for a small party.

On the east wing of the property are the Master suite, guest suite and study. The master bath is a spa retreat by itself with marble floors, a tub and enormous shower. The study has built in wooden contemporary table to place your laptop. The whole house has wifi. The guest room with a King size bed opens to its own courtyard. The community has a waterfall feature with tennis courts and great mountain views. You are in very private luxurious retreat but you also are never far away from golf, shopping, casinos, the airport, and great nightlife. All of this around the rich geological (San Adreas fault), archeological (Indian canyon lands) and even Hollywood historical lore that surrounds Palm Springs and its neighboring cities in the Coachella valley.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2009

          About the owner: Jointly owned by partners Gary Ortega, a healthcare Financial Analyst and Cary Adams, a retired school teacher of 37 years. This is a home away from home of North Hollywood CA. Cary has owned a house in the valley for 23 years and this is the 'get away from the hustle and bustle of LA.

          Why the Owner Chose Cathedral City:
          When you drive over Beaumont pass, suddenly you sense the air changes. It is crispier. And then views are vast. A sense of freedom grabs you as you pass by the wind turbines. The avenues are landscaping works of art. I have never seen neighborhood spend so much money and attention to common areas. This always makes for a lovely drive. Did I mention the great weather - driving with a top down at night is a treat. One would expect to be in a remote area but the Coachella Valley is only two hours from LA. This may explain why this resort town is sophisticated and at the same time it is surprisingly archeologically significant, geologically interesting (close to San Andreas fault) and has Hollywood history/lore built into its fabric. Most of our LA friends vacation here and own a second home here.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          The mature trees on the entrance of the gated community winds into this clusters of unique homes. Ours has very contemporary lines on the exterior. The walls are made of eco-blocks. An 11-inch thick combination of foam and cement refractory material which we were told will be the last construction of its kind. While the lines are modern outside the decorator made sure the interiors are grounded in warn rich colors and textures that evoke a modern 'country feel'. All of this while being on the Gerald Ford corridor, which I think is the most manicured avenue in the valley. It is close to all the amenities one could need,want or desire.
