Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Artists living and working in Landers. My partner and I built our house in 2007. We moved here from New York state after living there for over 25 years. Tired of the brutal winters & high humidity in summer, we find the High-Desert a welcome change.

Why the Owner Chose Joshua Tree:
As the sign states when you enter Landers ' Land of Endless Vistas '. that's what brought us here.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
On average , there are 283 sunny days per year , the brightest full moon, the darkest night sky and the most stars you will ever see .
