                  Great walking location -- to downtown or just to peruse movie colony locations such as Bing Crosby, Cary Grant, Lucille Ball and many others...just a fun time. Great for bike riding too!

                   

                  Manager info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About: We love golf, warm weather and having our friends (and dogs) with us to enjoy the best things in life.

                  Why Movie Colony East (formerly Ruth Hardy Park):
                  It is just beautifully preserved...modern amenities but still retains the unique style and comfort of an older Palm Springs property. Great for getting friends together but still providing privacy given the three buildings on the property all surrounding the tiled pool --the main house with 2 bedrooms and bath and two casita's both outfitted for maximum comfort.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  it is just wonderful for getting multiple guests/couples together -- there is a fantastic common area (pool, BBQ, and outside fireplace) but still provides privacy since there are three buildings on the property. It's the best of both worlds.
