Stylishly remodeled, generously stocked, and incredibly well-priced, this fun Desert Hot Springs home is the perfect retreat or home base for your explorations in the greater Palm Springs area.
Modern Mid-Century Home (1964) features an open floor plan with modern design tile throughout, except there is carpet in the expanded Master Suite. This is an older pool home, but it has been stylishly refreshed in many ways, and it's constantly undergoing even more improvement.
The yard has many desirable features:
* Optionally Heated, newly re-plaster/re-tiled 'Salt-Water' Pool and Spa that's gentle on your hair, skin and eyes ($50/nt, $250/wk additional cost)
* Fun color-changing Pool/Spa lights create instant ambiance when the sun goes down
* Pool floats and noodles
* 7 lounge chairs
* Outdoor living room set-up with 2 outdoor loveseats
* Natural gas (in-line) barbeque grill so you won't ever run out of propane at an inopportune time
* Get ready to tell your best ghost stories and jokes when gathered around the propane fire pit
Living room features:
* 2 comfortable, modern-style sofa sectionals
* 50inch HDTV with streaming internet, HD-DVR so you'll never miss your favorite shows, premium movie channels including HBO, SHO, Encore, IFC, LOGO, Starz, Cinemax, and more
* Bluetooth speaker system
Lots of dining options: Fun inside dining for 6+ in the round, as well as counter seating for 2, eat-in kitchen for 4+, and al fresco dining for 6+ outside on the covered patio
High speed wireless internet throughout the house and backyard. There's even a wireless printer that comes in handy for maps/directions, boarding passes, and the occasional work email.
Master bedroom features:
* Leather King bed
* expanded area for dressing and home office use
* 50inch HDTV with premium channels, DVD/Bluray and HD-DVR features
* En Suite Bathroom with newly tiled walk-in shower
* Newer Massage Table for in-home treatments
Second bedroom with comfortable Queen bed, 32inch HDTV and a nice mountain view
Third bedroom has 2 Twin beds that can be combined into a 2nd King, 32inch HDTV and patio doors to the backyard/pool
For larger groups, each sofa sectional functions as an additional sleeping area (Twin-sized) plus there is an available Queen aerobed. For the little ones, we have a Graco Pack N Play and a new sturdy high chair.
This is not the place to be if you want to pay a lot of money to be in a hip/glamorous part of Palm Springs. This home is not in Palm Springs; it's in Desert Hot Springs, 1 of 9 desert cities that make up the Greater Palm Springs Area. DHS is a quirky, little town that's proudly off the beaten path, and it's a nice retreat and/or jumping off point for a number of area attractions: Dozens of nearby Spas, 150+ Designer Outlet Shops at Cabazon 20 miles away, and the amazingly beautiful Joshua Tree National Monument which is only 30 miles away, and yet Downtown Palm Springs is only about 13 miles/20 minutes away. There's a nice 2 mile loop Swiss/Brice Canyon Desert Trail just a half block away.
Mineral Spring Water
Our water is unique in that it comes from special natural aquifers separate from the rest of the Palm Springs area. It has won 'Best Tasting Municipal Drinking Water' in International competitions. The drinking water in our house and even the water in our pool and spa originate from the Mission Springs Desert Hot Springs Aquifer and it's so clean it's untreated. The water 150 feet below our house is naturally heated by ancient geothermal forces below the earth’s surface to as much as 180 degrees, however, as a residential house we are not allowed to tap into the hot water aquifer which is reserved for the Spas, so our pool/spa water is from the cold aquifer and efficiently heated by a natural gas heater. Hot or cold, for centuries, this water has been believed to hold curative powers. When the first scientific analysis of the hot mineral water was performed in 1937, its therapeutic value was medically affirmed.

Joshua Tree National Monument is less than 30 miles away. This home is in the 'Desert Hot Springs Spa Zone' where there are 15-20 natural hot mineral spas and the closest ones are only a few blocks away. Desert Hot Springs (DHS) is a small town (1 of 9 cities that make up the Greater Palm Springs area).

Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: We're Doug and Joe. We feel in love with the Palm Springs area over 20 years ago. Doug is a college professor, and Joe is an entrepreneur and certified green building professional.
Why the Owner Chose Other Palm Springs Properties:
This is an older, mid-century modern pool home that has been expanded and substantially remodeled with a design sensibility that honors both the house's roots in modernism and area's roots as a Spanish Mission. The home is located in the 'Desert Hot Springs Spa Zone' where there are 15-20 natural mineral hot springs with award winning water. The closest spas are only a few blocks away.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our water is unique in that it comes from special natural hot and cold aquifers, separate from the rest of the Palm Springs area. It has won 'Best Tasting Municipal Drinking Water' in International competitions. The drinking water in our house and even the water in our pool and spa originate from the Desert Hot Springs Aquifer. Our home is in the 'Spa Zone'; the water 150 feet below our house is naturally heated by ancient geothermal forces below the earth’s surface to as much as 180 degrees, however, as a residential house we are not allowed to tap into the water that is already heated (it's reserved for the Spas), so our pool/spa water is efficiently heated by a natural gas heater. Hot or cold, for centuries, this water has been believed to hold curative powers. When the first scientific analysis of the hot mineral water was performed in 1937, its therapeutic value was medically affirmed. Today Desert Hot Springs features 20 Spas, and you can even walk to several for our home, including: Swiss Health Resort, Sea Mountain Lifestyle Resort, and Miracle Springs Spa. World famous Spas like Two Bunch Palms and We Care Spa are a short drive away. Also, our home is the perfect jumping off point for a number of area attractions including the amazingly beautiful Joshua Tree National Monument, only 30 miles away.
