Private Homes house description

This cozy, newly renovated, California bungalow is a great opportunity for someone seeking a private pool home at a condo price. The property is located in a quiet residential neighborhood just minutes from downtown Palm Springs. The 840 square foot home features cathedral ceilings spanning the open concept kitchen/dining/living rooms, two bedrooms with generous closet space and an en suite spa-like bath. The fully fenced front yard functions as an outdoor room from which you can contemplate the view of the majestic mountains while sipping your morning coffee. The private back yard pool area is adorned with Mediterrean palm trees, a sparkling Hollywood pool, and an umbrella bistro dining table on which to serve food freshly prepared on the adjacent grill.

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About: As a Seattle based psychotherapist I often encounter patients struggling to cope with the unrelenting gray and rainy winter days in the Pacific Northwest. Some years ago I personally experienced the medicinal benefits of the Coachella valley's perpetual sun and easy living and am eager to share this paradise with others.

              Why Private Homes:
              For a vacation home I wanted a place in the sun that afforded rejuvenating solace yet with access to the outdoor activities and urban amenities (restaurants, shopping, culture) I also enjoy.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Desert Bungalow is one of those environments that enables you to shed the cares of the daily grind the moment you enter. The cathedral ceiling of the great room evokes an airy openness that, depending on which direction you look, summons you to a trek on Mt. San Jacinto or beckons a lazy afternoon adrift on a pool float basking in the California sun.
