Araby house description

This one of a kind tri-level mid-century modern home features walls of glass, spectacular desert views, an expansive deck off the living room and upstairs bedroom, separated by broad steps that lead down to another patio complete with private spa, only steps from the downstairs master suite. The lower level of the property features a sparkling blue swimming pool complete with diving board and cabana.
While benefitting from a recent and extensive refresh, there are still lots of fun vintage mid-century features still intact in this unique home, including the original appliances in the kitchen, original and carefully replicated bathroom tile and fixtures, and a floor-mounted light switching system.
Perfect for 3 couples, each unique bedroom suite features king size platform beds and fresh new linens, private bathrooms, new flat screen HDTV’s, satellite television with premium movie channels, and more. The living room boasts a 50 inch flat screen HDTV, with DVR and surround sound, to provide you with a theater experience. All of the TV’s also feature east coast feed to view your favorite shows early.
Nestled in the side of a mountain just below Bob Hope's mountain palace, the expansive 220 degree view overlooks Palm Canyon Arroyo and all of Palm Springs. Swaying palms, sunny desert vistas, nighttime stars and twinkling city lights await you at this secluded, private, quintessential Palm Springs estate.
Former owners include the renowned Howard Hughes, Hollywood producer Paul Keyes & actress Eva Gabor of Green Acres Fame. Smokey Robinson vacationed here, and Robert Evans of The Godfather fame honeymooned here.
