Property description

** NOTE ** - THIS PROPERTY IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR THE COACHELLA OR STAGECOACH FESTIVAL WEEKENDS. THANK YOU.

You’ll love waking up every morning in our “spa” in the desert, “Casa Sierra”. This beautifully-decorated, designer home is in the gated Southern California desert community of Sun City Shadow Hills. You'll feel like you're at a 5-star resort; each morning the sun quickly warms the lanai, office, and family room and rises over the spectacular and very-private backyard pool and spa as the sounds of the cascading fountain welcome you to another tremendous desert day!

You’ll enjoy hour after hour of relaxation or entertaining friends in this wonderful vacation home full of indoor and outdoor comforts and amenities and fully equipped for desert resort living at its finest! Even on rainy days, the swaying palm trees will make you feel like you are vacationing in Hawaii. Ceiling fans in every room (and out on the lanai!) keep the resort breezes blowing all year

Life at Casa Sierra revolves around the great room area, encompassing the dining room and kitchen and offering a lovely view of the patio, pool, spa, and backyard palm trees. There is a large flat-screen TV in the great room with a DVD/Blu-Ray/CD player and surround sound for those movie nights. (Yes, there is a popcorn popper in the kitchen!) Cable TV offers you all of your favorite channels, including sports, and movies with HBO and Showtime. Enjoy the musical variety on 40+ different cable music channels, or make your own soundtrack with an easy hook-up for your iPod. The gas fireplace provides warmth and a cozy atmosphere on those cold winter nights.

The kitchen offers easy access to the great room and dining room; enjoy a family meal at the formal dining room table with room for 10, or a casual breakfast or lunch in the kitchen breakfast nook. After lunch…surprise! That’s a bumper-pool table hiding under there waiting to be enjoyed, or flip the table-top for a felt-lined card table – perfect for that poker night or highly-competitive afternoon bridge game! The kitchen features granite countertops and top-of-the-line appliances, and is fully equipped for all of your culinary needs.

There’s even a second refrigerator in the two-car garage to store that party food for when the big crowds show up, and a washer and dryer are conveniently located just off the kitchen as well. The office is proxemic as well, and the whole house has high-speed wireless internet. There is a flat-panel monitor in case you’d like to hook up your laptop, and a printer/fax/scanner for all of your printing needs.

The master suite looks out onto the pool, and the king-sized bed is beautifully appointed with organic sheets, linens, and comforters for perfectly restful nights and luxurious relaxing mornings. A comfortable reading area and a wall-mounted flat-screen with a built-in DVD/Blu-Ray player make the master bedroom a welcome oasis at any time of day. The large master bathroom features a double vanity, a separate shower and a Jacuzzi tub, and a very large walk-in closet with tons of storage and shelf space. The guest bedroom has a double bed, with a twin trundle that pulls outs and stores easily underneath the double bed, while the guest bathroom features a combination shower and tub. The detached casita offers your guests privacy when necessary, and also features a king-size bed with lovely organic linens, a private bath with shower, a roomy closet and storage areas (including drawers under the bed) and a wall-mounted flat-screen TV with built-in DVD player. Each of the three bedrooms features an iPod-compatible clock radio so you can keep your personal music collection nearby.

Few properties in Shadow Hills are as large as this one, even fewer have as much room in the backyard, and finally, fewer still have as large a private pool as the one you’ll enjoy at Casa Sierra! The covered patio area has an outdoor dining table, and an outdoor lounge area for even more relaxation. The salt-water-system pool is one of the longest you will find in this gated community (approximately 50’), allowing you to swim laps or simply relax and enjoy the large tanning shelf. The spa and waterfall feature overlook the pool, and a gas fire pit on the upper level is the perfect finish to the backyard entertainment area. There’s no shortage of outdoor furniture, with room for all of your friends or family to enjoy the backyard together. There’s even fresh fruit to enjoy right off our very own trees!

Sun City Shadow Hills is an active adult community with 24-hour security and numerous activities for all ages to enjoy; children and grandchildren of guests are welcomed as guest of renters. Long-term guests are free to use the recreation center, featuring an indoor lap pool, beautiful outdoor pool and spa, and a state-of-the-art fitness center and classes. There are also tennis courts, bocce courts, an 18-hole putting course, billiard room, library and two 18-hole golf courses on site. Numerous clubs and classes meet regularly including bridge, readers ink, creative arts, table tennis, community singers, Mah Jongg, and more! Casa Sierra comes with tennis rackets, golf clubs, bocce balls, and bicycles in case you leave your own equipment at home.

Centrally located and freeway convenient, trips to La Quinta, Indian Wells, Rancho Mirage, and Palm Springs are only minutes away, with restaurants, art galleries, shopping, theaters, and casinos right nearby. There are over 40 public golf courses within a 15-mile radius, and many more that are semi-private but accessible.

You will love this one-of-a-kind vacation home!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

Why the Owner Chose Sun City, Shadow Hills (Indio, CA, USA):
We purchased this home in 2010 and can't wait until we're 'retired enough' to enjoy it on a long-term basis. We have spent numerous holidays in various desert communities with friends and family, but once we found Casa Sierra at Sun City Shadow Hills, we knew that's where we wanted to be! The days are lovely and active, the nights glorious and romantic, and there's ALWAYS a good time to be had at Casa Sierra. By the way, Casa Sierra is named for our lively Golden Retriever. You'll find several photos of her in the home. We cherish our time spent at Casa Sierra and we hope that you'll treat it with the care and respect that we do.
