Racquet Club Estates house description

Built in 1959, this vestige of the rise of Palm Springs' Mid Century Modern architectural boom has emerged from a remarkable renovation. The year 2011 marked the year of its metamorphosis, offering all the comforts and conveniences of the 21st century, while preserving the integrity of its celebrated classic design.

The iconic butterfly roof line continues to be the most popular of Palm Springs' designs, expressing the optimism and progress of the late 50s and early 60s design movement in America.

Now offered to guests for vacation stays, Desert Stars presents a sensational alternative to your standard hotel room stay. Enjoy all the luxuries of a private home along with many of the amenities you desire. With its bright, open floor plan featuring lots of windows and glass doors, you're bound to enjoy the Palm Springs vacation experience the way it was meant to be.

Furnishings comprise a creative combination of contemporary and classic 'retro' pieces that complement and pay tribute to the Mid Century Modern movement. A plus for purists!

The oversized lot features an expansive backyard with a classic rectangular salt water pool ideal for lap-swimming, if not lounging. A brand-new adjacent in-ground spa just steps from the pool, is thoughtfully positioned to take in the commanding views of the nearby San Jacinto Mountain range. A gas-powered in-ground fire pit in the pool and spa area offers cozy comfort and warmth during those chilly desert nights under the stars.

This exquisitely appointed Desert Stars home includes:

Three spacious and professionally decorated bedrooms with clerestory windows for plenty of natural light and views.
Two artfully designed ultra modern bathrooms with beautifully tiled showers and floors, and skylights above.
Sleek and modern yet practical, a fully equipped kitchen with Caesarstone countertops and breakfast bar is part of the great room and opens directly into the backyard for lounging and casual entertaining. A gas-fired barbecue sits outside, just beyond the kitchen's sliding glass doors.
Stay super connected (only if you want to!) with a completely wireless network throughout. TVs in the bedrooms and living room.
A large 30'x15' pool ideal for lap-swimming and room for plenty of guests to just float or splash around. Heating optional.
A brand-new bubbling spa at the east end of the yard ensures a panoramic view of the majestic San Jacintos while melting your stresses away.
A hot-and-cold outdoor shower makes it easy to rinse before and after a dip in the pool or spa.
Covered carport parking for two cars, plus driveway for two more, and off-street parking provides space for up to 5 cars.
Desert Stars vacation home is just a few minutes from downtown, with its abundance of restaurants, bars, shops and other entertainment. Or escape to nature via the famous Tram to the top of the nearby San Jacinto Mountains--just a five-minute drive to the station.

Make Desert Stars your next Palm Springs vacation landing. We think you'll leave feeling relaxed and refreshed from your very own metamorphosis!

Happy Trails!
