Movie Colony East (formerly Ruth Hardy Park) house description

Tucked away in the renowned Movie Colony East neighborhood of Old Palm Springs, the glamorous lifestyles of Hollywood and Palm Springs intertwine at the luxurious Villa Fontana. This celebrated neighborhood was chosen by the likes of Bob Hope, Frank Sinatra, and Bing Crosby to be their Palm Springs getaway. It's names like theirs that helped put Palm Springs on the map, and even though they are now gone, modern celebrities still escape to the seclusion of Villa Fontana to relax and unwind at this luxury rental's pool bar.

Now is your chance to live like the stars at this expansive Palm Springs retreat! As you arrive through the front gates, a secluded garden path winds down to the entrance of this modern home set against the mountainous horizon, while palm trees gently sway in the background of the private pool.

Featuring an open floor plan with three bedrooms, a separate Media Room with a Yoga/TRX studio, as well as an extra large Great Room with two seating areas, a Wine Bar, and stone fireplace, Villa Fontana is the perfect place to have company in style. A round Dining Room table comfortably seats eight, and French Doors open up to a fountain decorating the front garden. All of these rooms are delicately decorated with the owner's original sculpture, art, and decor.

The kitchen is designed to supply the modern chef with everything they need and a suite of high-end appliances will make even the seasoned veteran feel comfortable. To the side of the Main Kitchen, a Caterer's Pantry with its own entrance allows for dinner to be prepared in private while your guests socialize just outside.

All of the bedrooms are charmingly furnished, and functionally equipped with flat screen televisions and iPod dock alarm clocks. The master suite features a king sized bed, while the remaining two have queen beds. Each bedroom sports french doors which open into to the surrounding greenery. The bedrooms sit on the far western edge of the property apart from the primary living space, allowing you to take an undisturbed reprieve any time during your stay.

Situated right in the heart of Palm Springs, this luxury rental boasts a uniquely expansive and exclusive premises. Enjoy a stunning view of the mountains while relaxing Palm Springs style in the Hollywood Regency pool. Choose from any number of locations in the lush yard outside to unwind: in the natural rock spa with 20 of your guests under the waterfall, in the grotto or by the fire, or overlooking the zen Koi pond in the Dining Loggia with seating for 10, or by the fire pit dining table. You could also spend some time in peaceful concentration or solo fitness on the upper west end of the property in the Yoga/TRX studio.
