Property description

We bought this house about two years ago after looking for 'the place' to retire....The gourmet market 'Bristol Farms' is across from the gate guarded entry and our neighborhood reflects the quality of life we have enjoyed....

Every room of the house has been refreshed with new flooring, painting and custom changes that make the 1,550 SF feel just right, two king size beds accommodate the adults in your group while our single antique sleigh bed with it's 130 year old history will generate many questions.... once in a ship's Captain quarters then given to a Novice Nun and many others.

Many of the fine pieces of furniture we acquired to provide you with an unforgetable experience have a story... two large leather lounge chairs make an afternoon nap so easy, like flying first class...a down filled Kriess collection couch fits many guests and the formal dining room can seat six adults with two children as well.

We decided on a Zen Asian look for the overall interior design of this home...'Century' hardwood furniture in the Chin Hua style provide storage in both the family room and bedrooms and the same features continue the look into the seperate dining room.

A black granite island in the kitchen allows for two seats and an all around work space...New quartz counters and steel appliances complete the kitchen image. The master shower is now completely customized with a 4 inch walkover dam and Carrera marble surround.

We have no traditional inground pool to use so we built something else.

Our outdoor 'Kyoto relaxation pool' is a different experience to enjoy....Fresh hot water falls into a black whirlpool bath for hours of relaxation, and you may add salts, fragrances or oils for special treatments before all is washed away down the drain and all guests can start with a fresh beginning.

Our home is only five minutes from the I-10 freeway, and the College of the Desert complex which includes a 72 acre world class regional Park...21 beautiful sculptures adorn the concrete pathways designed for walking or biking. Next door is the McCallum theater where we recently enjoyed the 'Ten Tenors' from Australia...1st class entertainment.

'The River" shopping mall is about eight minutes away as is El Paseo and many fantastic golf courses....All three Marriott courses and Westin's Desert Willow are within that group...I have played them all and will guide you to the best deals available...Sherman's deli is next to Bristol Farms and Albertson's is on the opposite corner....Best burger in town is within walking distance as well.

The Eisenhower medical center is four minutes away with an urgent care office across Monterey...

The minimum rental period allowed by our HOA is 28 days.... I have a week in a two bedroom unit at Marriott's Shadow Ridge so if I can't help you here maybe that place would work.

We are in the real estate business and understand the needs of our clients...We have used vacation rentals for more than 20 years and nothing can replace integrity so let us treat you as we wish to be treated. We look forward to hearing from you.
