Property description

Welcome to this casually elegant, impeccably maintained and very private 3,500-square-foot California Mediterranean house set on a third of an acre in the prestigious Oakmont Estates section of guard-gated Mission Hills Country Club. This stunning home features an interior created by a top Los Angeles interior designer and is surrounded by lush, mature landscaping.

Outside: The enclosed and gated front courtyard is a tranquil oasis featuring a gently overflowing water feature, banana palms and bougainvillea, while the graveled sideyard is dotted with grapefruit, lemon and orange trees (so beautifully fragrant in late winter/early spring!). The backyard has two covered patios alongside the house (one with a sitting area, the other with a built-in stainless-steel gas BBQ), wrought-iron chaise lounge chairs, jetted fountains spilling into the large adjacent swimming pool, an elevated spa that accommodates six and decorative oversized pottery. The entire backyard is surrounded by a mature, 11-foot ficus hedge while lantana flowers, chaise lounge cushions and a patio umbrella all in sunburst yellow add a splash of fun and color.

Inside: The art-filled main house features custom-painted walls and ceilings in the public rooms, and sleeps up to six in three bedrooms. The luxurious master suite with a king bed and an enormous walk-in closet overlooks the pool and a rose garden, and the spacious master bath has a walk-in shower enclosed by glass blocks, two sink areas plus a make-up station and a deep Jacuzzi tub. One guest bedroom has a queen bed and a view of the courtyard while the other has a queen bed and a sideyard view; each has an en suite bathroom. The detached casita welcomes guests with powder-blue walls and bamboo wallpaper on the ceiling, plus a full bath and a day bed (2 twins) that sleeps two.

The well-equipped, eat-in chef's kitchen has a large center island, stainless-steel appliances and range hood, six-burner gas stove, built-in microwave oven, a walk-in pantry, rich wood cabinetry and granite countertops. Through the butler’s pantry lined with glass-fronted cabinets is the oversized dining room, with 18-foot ceilings, a custom-built dining table of rough-hewn wood and wooden chairs with leather seats, a gas fireplace, flowing silk curtains that puddle on the floor, a wall of French doors that open to a patio and Arte de Mexico chandelier and sconces. The living room has multiple conversation areas with two sofas and lots of throw pillows, a gas fireplace and a wet bar (also open to the dining room), and overlooks the pool and backyard gardens. There are custom window treatments throughout the house, and a built-in sound system inside and out.

Dogs typically are welcome with advance approval, but no cats, please.

Rental rates include cable TV, WiFi, twice-weekly pool and trash service, weekly gardening service, water, unlimited long-distance telephone (U.S. and Canada), and baseline gas and electric.

Mission Hills Country Club is a private, members-only club with dining, world-class tennis facilities and three 18-hole golf courses. The adjacent Westin Mission Hills hotel has two public 18-hole golf courses and several restaurants.

Nearby shopping includes The River (Rancho Mirage), El Paseo (Palm Desert) and Palm Canyon Drive (Palm Springs), each with a variety of stores, boutiques, restaurants and art galleries. Children will enjoy the Living Desert, Knott’s Soak City and the nearby Children’s Discovery Museum, while adults will enjoy the spas at the desert’s many resorts and casinos. Many other attractions and restaurant options are too numerous to list.

City of Rancho Mirage permit #1316.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We live fulltime in Beverly Hills, Calif. and purchased this property as a second home. In a housing market with many, many choices the architecture and floor plans of Oakmont Estates stood out. So we bought this house while it was still under construction, which allowed us to landscape and decorate it literally from the ground up.

Why the Owner Chose Rancho Mirage, CA, USA:
Rancho Mirage is a beautiful city and is centrally located for easy access to all the Coachella Valley has to offer, from Palm Springs at one end to La Quinta at the other. Mission Hills is a top-notch community that boasts acres of open space, greenbelts and manicured landscaping, in addition to more fairways than you can count! It's also home to the ANA Inspiration LPGA tournament each spring and multiple tennis tournaments, both big and small. Once inside, you can stroll, bike or jog for miles without leaving this gated paradise.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house is the perfect desert retreat and we find the workweek stress melts away and the fun begins as soon as we open the front gate. It's rich in amenities, filled with sunlight, private, quiet and very, very comfortable.
