About the owner: The owner is a Boston-born architectural designer specializing in the acquisition, restoration, and landmarking of historic properties. He has managed properties and been involved in real estate investing for more than a quarter of a century. He holds a B.A. from Pepperdine University and an M.A. from Emerson College. Hamrick House, is named after the Pacific Northwest family that commissioned architects Albert Frey and John Porter Clark to design one of their first residential commissions. The Palm Springs City Council has designated the property a Class I Historic Landmark.
Why the Owner Chose Little Tuscany, Palm Springs, CA, USA:
“This is such a magnificent and unique historical property,” states the Mark. “Our main goal was to respect and preserve the historical character and integrity while allowing the integration of all the modern conveniences and amenities required for today’s luxury living in the California desert.” continues Mark. 'Our natural landscape, spectacular views and the year-round weather led us to the decision to open our home to others who appreciate this special relaxing lifestyle in the tranquil desert setting.' Former Architectural Digest Editor-In-Chief Paige Rense describes the property as 'remarkable.'
The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
“We love movies and have several clients that work in entertainment and enjoy spending time relaxing in the desert. So the media was an important part of our design plan. The property has state of the art media, iPod, iPad or iPhone connects to surround sound throughout and an incredible outdoor movie theater with access to enormous collection of movies in all genres. Some televisions including the movie screen can display the same movie/dvd throughout- a marvelous feature when entertaining.” “The outdoor king-sized beds are perfect for sunning or watching movies on those balmy nights under the star-studded desert skies with the twinkling view of the city lights.”
