About the Property

Large yard home- tennis court- pool- spa- outdoor BBQ- ping pong- pet welcome

10% off rental rate from December 16-Dec 26.
This private estate home was once owned as a vacation house by the Driscoll family. The property was recently remodeled . The interior and exterior were both upgraded with the finest materials and the home is beautifully detailed and decorated with upscale art and custom furniture with a Southwestern flair.

Located in South Palm Desert, the prime location is close to El Paseo world-class shopping and dining; walking distance to golf course, hiking and biking trails in the nearby Santa Rosa Mountains, and has spectacular desert and mountain views. The over 1/2 acre lot sports a saltwater lap pool with waterfall (heated per request during winter) with adjacent Jacuzzi, a fire pit and outdoor grill, a full-size private sunken tennis court with computerized tennis ball machine (our court was resurfaced and maintained by the same company who is responsible for all the courts at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, home of the BNP Paribas Open), as well as an outdoor covered ping-pong table, all on beautifully landscaped grounds.

For your pleasure, the home comes fully furnished and equipped with HDTV combined with living room stereo and theater, digital sound system throughout the inside and outside living areas, and large flat screen televisions in each of the 3 bedrooms. It is move-in ready with spacious walk-in closets stocked with fine linen and luxurious towels. The granite top enhanced modern gourmet kitchen with Sub-Zero refrigerator, gas stove, Aventium microwave oven with convection feature, is equipped with cooking ware, quality indoor-outdoor dishes and glasses, and even has oils and spices for those enjoying home cooking. Granite and beautiful tiling finishes enhance the large luxurious bathrooms with walk-in showers that provide instant hot water. Each master bath has double sinks.

Situated within walking distance to the Gene Sarazen designed Shadow Mountain Golf Course, this home is ideal for golfers as well. One of the historic premium courses in the Coachella Valley, Shadow Mountain GC offers affordable rates ranging from $35 to $50, as well as summer after 3 pm rate is only $3 per 9-hole round. Even though this course does not offer the amenities of a private club, it provides for a nice round of golf and great outing.
El Paseo Blvd, the Rodeo Drive of the desert, offers upscale shopping and fine dining within walking distance to the compound. World-class restaurants include Mastro's, Il Corso, Pacifica, Mamma Gina, Sullivan's, and La Spiga to bring you flavors from Italy to France. For more casual dining, you can enjoy CPK, Tommy Bahamas (restaurant and retail), Blue Agave (very good Mexican restaurant) Thai Dishes, Le Basil (Vietnamese and Thai's), and The Daily Grill. Luxury retailers among many include Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Escada, St.John, Ralph Lauren, Saks Fifth Avenue and other unique trendy boutiques.

The Living Desert Zoo (Giraffes, Camels, sleepover tents for stars watchers..), Century Cinema at "The River" also within 10 minutes drive. There also a bikes rental shop down the street.
