Joshua Tree house description

Hike straight into the park from this contemporary desert retreat. Set on 5 acres of pristine desert landscape, this property offers a private and idyllic desert setting with all of the comforts of home.

Completely redesigned interior (full remodel in 2013) features high-end appliances, wide pine plank flooring with radiant heating, luxurious carrera marble bathrooms, and an open living area with renovated kitchen and 200 degree views. Designer touches include Artemis George Kovacs ceiling fans, Kohler fixtures, and a Design Within Reach fireplace.

Enjoy hiking or bouldering in the park, just a short walk away, or relax at home, with comfortable seating options throughout the house and property.

Living room is a terrific place to kick back and hang out with friends and family. Ample comfy seating surrounds the fireplace for a cozy night in during the colder winter months. The living room also features a 47” TV, complete with DVD/Blu-ray player, DVD library, and Wii console with games. Also available are board games, playing cards, a small stash of books, and some local guidebooks.

Open floor plan kitchen features contemporary stainless steel appliances, custom concrete counters, and high-end fixtures. Appliance highlights include high capacity refrigerator, dishwasher, wine fridge, and coffee maker. Kitchen is fully appointed with everything you’ll need to cook gourmet meals. There’s also a large gas grill right outside, covered so that you and your dinner will stay dry in case of rain. Dine indoors or out—there’s full seating for six around our custom-built outdoor table. After dinner, enjoy the night sky while sitting around the fire pit—the stars are amazing in the desert.

Spacious mid-century modern master bedroom with king-sized bed and high quality linens. En suite bath with luxurious soaking tub (enjoy a view of the boulders while you relax in the bath) and carrera marble tub surround and floors. Second bedroom features a high architectural ceiling, a queen bed, and an adjoining outdoor lounge area. Adjacent bath features a spa shower and carrera marble tile floor and shower surround. Guest bedroom/bath can be closed off for additional privacy.
