Some houses just have 'it.'
'It' being that perfect blend of style, comfort and domestic romance that somehow says, "home."
First , there's the dramatic contrast between inside and out. From the jaw-dropping grandeur of our fifteen private, boulder-strewn acres, laced with private hiking trails and seasonal creeks and climbing opportunities, you step into a sanctuary of luxury, detail and sophistication rarely seen in remote locations.
There are rooms made of rock. Sleek banisters crafted by a local artisan to resemble snakes. Artist friends designed and executed the concrete countertops with Mexican tile detail, the molita-detailed upholstery, the metalwork. I painted the kitchen cabinet vignettes myself. Original paintings, prints and photos are everywhere. And every rug, blanket, placemat, vase, coffee cup, and frame is lovingly chosen and carefully placed to keep the magic alive. .
The. House is big. Rambling, even. We can sleep 14 in beds. And yet...it's cozy. Filled with nooks for sleeping, reading , drawing, sharing secrets. As well as larger rooms for gathering, dining, hanging out.
The kitchen is fully-equipped. There are two cable TVs, and wireless internet throughout. A green-enamel woodstove promises lovely nights around the fire. (wood provided), Powerful, dual-zone heat and air, atmospheric lighting, Sonos speakers, comfy beds with premiere linens, free domestic and Canadian landline service ...basically, everything you need to feel like our desert house is yours.
Outside, intimate patios and relaxed seating abound. There's a private, walled jacuzzi outside the master, a full-size pool ( solar heat! ) , gas barbecue and an outdoor shower that overlooks the entire desert floor.
Days here are brilliant and glorious. Lizards scamper, birds dip and swoon. Breezes come like tides, and desert blossoms open and close. You may see jackrabbits, tortoises, quail. You will doubtless hear the coyotes at dusk, which will serve to remind you that the silence is majestic.
At night, there are technicolor sunsets. The sky is endless and stars shoot through it. Bats come to eat the insects who come to get the water in the pool. Shadows morph and disappear. If you listen, you will hear the presence of the desert spirits.
The peace,silence, vastness, freedom and the unique living energy of the desert vortex have drawn people to this area since the days of the Chemeheuvi.
So come. Experience. Enjoy.
You'll find that Boulder House is so much more than just a place to sleep.
It's a place to awaken.
