This classic, Santa Barbara-style home, is centrally located in the very sought after 'Montecito' development. From the minute you drive through the gates, you will immediately acknowledge the pride of ownership throughout. Its just minutes away, when driving, to all the best shopping, restaurants, golf courses, hiking and has quick, easy access to the I-10.
This Cherokee built home, has been completley remodelled with designer furnishings and accessories. Cherokee homes here in the desert, mean 'quality'. It offers a private, newly remodelled full size pebble tech pool, hot tub, a child's wadding pool, fire pit for evening entertaining and a covered outdoor kitchen that is connected to the gas line. The pool area is very private and when the bouganvelia is in full bloom, it has a real resort-like feel to it. The pool is fully maintained twice weekly and the grounds are groomed weekly.
All three bedrooms have private ensuites, hotel quality mattresses and linens, California shutters for privacy and loads of closet space. The beautiful tile work throughout the home will leave you in awe and give you a true sense of 'Santa Barbara'-style. The original vintage Saltilo tiles on the floor complete the casual, yet elegant feel this unique home offers.
There are lemon, lime and grapefruit trees on the West side of the house for your enjoyment. Depending on the month you're there of course, will determine what's in season! The neighbors have a delicious orange tree which branches cascades over our fence…yes, please feel free to sample :)
Garret, who is our pool boy, comes twice a week to service and maintain the pool. The pool equipment is new and he prefers to control the mechanical use of it so please DO NOT touch the controls. He will also hose off the pool deck so do be careful walking around it when its wet!!
This home will not disappoint and I'm sure you'll agree, its the perfect place to enjoy your next vacation in Palm Desert.

About the owner: We are a Canadian family who reside in White Rock, BC. Palm Desert is a place we love very much! We've been coming here to the desert now for over 22 years and know the area well.
I am an Interior designer and my husband is a Sales Executive. There is no place we'd rather spend our free time than here in the desert. From the minute we land and get off the plane, its typicaly sunshine and blue skies for the duration of our stay. The mountains that surround us still seem to mesmerize us with their beauty. Our decision to purchase a home in Palm Desert, was one that was not given a second thought. Being a large family with 4 children, ages 15-22 this home has become our perfect getaway. We come to our desert home as often as our schedules allow us and are deeply saddened everytime we leave. We especially enjoy the restaurants, golfing and the world class shopping on
El Paseo Dr.
We look forward to our retirement years in the Palm Desert and feel so blessed to have such a lovely home here.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes: We find this location to be very central, as you can be anywhere in minutes. 'The Montecito' is a gated community that has a live guard seven days a week from 6am till 8pm.
The Desert Marriott, Morton's the Steakhouse, Italian (Bella Vita), Desert Willow Golf Course, Ralph's, Hair/nails, Pharmacy, Urgent Care Walk in clinic, Bank, Applebee's and Starbucks are just a few establishments that are near by for your convenience and all within walking distance.
This location is just minutes away from the I-10 which offers you easy access into LA, Phoenix, Las Vegas, San Diego, the airport or even just a day at the outlets.

The Unique Benefits at this House: From the minute we walked in, we immediately fell in love with the open-plan style this home so proudly presents. All the beautiful details, open floor-plan, soaring ceilings, wooden French doors that open up to the pool area, stunning tile work throughout were just a few features that made this home so special. It needed a lot of TLC and upgrades galore, but with a lot of hard work we were determined and confident that when we were done, it would be the home of our dreams. It's been a year now and the project's completed!! We could not be happier or more proud. The private courtyard has been a lovely extention to the living space with sun in it for most of the day and the pool of course, which is a must in the desert has given us so much pleasure during our visits.
The kitchen is huge and fully equipped. It has a large subzero refrigerator, subzero wine cooler, 5 burner gas cook top, dishwasher and microwave along with ample cupboards for storage.
Thankfully, the pictures do represent this space beautifully and we're sure you'll feel at home the minute you walk in!
We also have two beautiful Electra bike cruisers for you to enjoy. Riding bikes in the desert is the perfect way to get your exercise in as well as enjoy the beauty that surrounds the area.
