Movie Colony East (formerly Ruth Hardy Park) house description

Located on a quiet residential street in the heart of Palm Springs, “just around the corner” from Frank Sinatra’s Palm Springs house, this 1930s Spanish style bungalow is simply darling. The home features 1200 sq ft of living with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a gracious living room with fireplace, high ceiling, decorative wall niche, and 42” flat screen TV, a dining nook, a fully equipped kitchen and an enclosed sun porch with entry to a very private backyard with a beautiful newly renovated Pebble Tec pool. A convenient laundry area is adjacent to the kitchen and provides additional access to the backyard.
Old Spanish charm exists throughout the home, which while updated retains many of it’s original period design features lovingly maintained including kitchen and bathroom ceramic tiles and cabinets, Saltillo tile floor, and arched doorways. The dining and living areas boasts plantation shutters, original art and contemporary furnishings all in warm brown and red tones.
Quiet outdoor spaces abound with plenty of privacy; enjoy rocking on the front verandah in the gated front yard with palm trees and burgeoning bougainvillea or relax in the secluded backyard in the canopied outdoor living space by the pool. In the backyard, enjoy the views of the San Jacinto Mountain Range with the twinkle of the Palm Springs tramway by night! Cook inside or grill outside on a Professional gas grill.
Small enough for one but big enough for two couples to share with plenty of privacy.
The home is in a prime neighborhood on a quiet residential street within walking distance to downtown, Ruth Hardy Park and near the Desert Regional Medical Center. This is a great neighborhood for walks or bike rides, enjoying the many architectural styles of homes from mid-century, modern, to Spanish revival. Night life, great restaurants, spas, shopping, hiking trails, bike paths, yoga studios, Palm Springs Aerial Tramway and golf courses are just minutes away. Also enjoy street and art festivals and special events such as the Palm Springs International Movie festival, and Palm Springs Modernism Week.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I am a single owner and currently reside in the Bay Area. I purchased the home in 2005 to spend weekends and vacations with friends. I've furnished the house filled with creature comforts, comfortable furniture and original art as if I was living there full time. I enjoy coming out to the house as often as I can. I love the proximity of the house to Ruth Hardy Park and the short walk into town to shop or eat at some of my favorite restaurants. I love the outdoors especially hiking and have discovered many trails in and near Palm Springs.

Why the Owner Chose Movie Colony East (formerly Ruth Hardy Park):
I had always visited Palm Springs and decided I wanted to purchase a house to establish a more permanent home base. Palm Springs has so much to offer culturally, from celebrity tours, international movie festivals and the Palm Springs Modernism Week, all on the backdrop of the magical big wide open and peaceful serenity of the desert. There's nothing quite like it!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It was love at first sight with this 1938 Spanish bungalow. I've updated it through the years but have tried to retain the original period features.This house is so close to everything yet with the benefit of a quiet residential neighborhood. Everyone is so friendly. The privacy of the property both in the front and backyards are very special and the soothing ambiance of the home interior leave me feeling rested and at peace.
