About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

One of the most expansive and dramatic views in The Coachella Valley. This home backs up to 15,000 acres of National Monument Land, (not another house in the view between the home and Mt. San Jacinto) and provides a totally pristine, serene, desert retreat experience.

The private residence of a New York advertising executive, a complete renovation of the property was completed in August of 2011. The fixtures, the furnishings, and the amenities were chosen by the owner's architect for her personal use. Now the owner's work/travel schedule has made this a spectacular spot for the demanding vacationer or winter escapee.

Indoor/Outdoor Living at it's best, the 650 ft shaded lanai offers pleasant shelter from the sun during the day and it's recessed lighting and outdoor furniture make this second living/dining room, a spectacular place to watch the sunset over the snow capped mountains.

The Mamounia: master bedroom features doors that let out onto a private garden and an en suite bath whose glass wall shower was designed for two. Queen bed, Calvin Klein Sheets, and Moroccan accents make this a bedroom where dreams do come true.

The Standard: 1st Guest Bedroom with access to pool and mountain view. Queen bed and spacious mirrored closet, this room is also fully equipped with a complete pop-up office-- desk, printer, scanner, fax, phone with free Canadian calling. The guest bath, directly across the hall is a riot of white tile and Palm Springs accents.

The Royalton: 2nd Guest Bedroom/Study. Furnished with DWR day bed and media console this room can become a 2 twin bed, or one king bed bedroom or stay as configured and offer a cool quiet sanctuary for reading, listening to music or streaming your content to the Chrome Cast on this high def flat screen TV. Glass doors open directly on the pool and provide views of the mountains.

Living Room/Dining Room/Kitchen: Forming a spacious open plan for living, these three rooms are furnished with: Moss, Morroso, Ingo Mauer, Sapien, Saarinen, Boerner and many interesting mid-century accent pieces- the all stainless steel kitchen features an Electrolux Professional Stove. There is a gas barbecue just outside the East kitchen door. Samsung 42' Flat Screen mounted above the fireplace.

The Pool: One of the old fashioned egg-shaped pools, it is deep enough (9'.5' at the deep end) to keep it swimmable even in the hottest afternoons. Heated (optional) during the winter it provides just enough length for lap/exercise. There is a 'Dinah Shore Shelf' for partially submerged sunbathing, easy-access steps for entry and an attached spa/hot tub for soothing the muscles after a hike behind the home.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I was born and raised in the midwest. Transplanted to New York City and am now excited to make my bi-coastal lifestyle official with this home.

Why the Owner Chose Cathedral City Cove, Cathedral City, CA, USA:
People who have lived in Palm Springs all their lives walk in and scream over the view. From the pool area it's a bit like being on the moon. Yet, it is in a quiet, very friendly neighborhood. The direct neighbors have no dogs and are full time residents. QUIET. I once owned a house that was not and I vowed never to do that again.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The view, the view, oh and did I mention... then there's the view from the living room. Lush bougainvillea hedges shelter the home from outside view and block the view of other homes while still allowing a spectacular sunrise, mountain, palm tree postcard experience every morning. The modern entry, zinc fountain is nice to watch and to listen to. Convenient. 5 minutes from everything: Shopping, 16 screen movie theatre, The Dinah Shore Golf Tournament, The two largest consignment shops in The Valley, Palm Springs/Palm Desert.
