About the Property

2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 4

TOT #4560
Ruth Hardy Park Oasis - 2 BR | 2.5 BA | Sleeps 6

Sleeps 6, 1,836 square feet, central location, mountain views, open floor plan, updated and remodeled, over-sized walled property, fruit-bearing citrus trees, 25 foot heated in-ground pool, off-street covered parking, king master bedroom sleeps 2, plus additional two-room guest suite that sleeps up to 4.

This is an ideal vacation home for romantic getaways, small groups, families, extended weekends with old friends, month-long holidays for out-of-towners and artists/writers looking to get away from it all in a quiet and serene setting. The central location makes this property a good choice for biking and hiking enthusiasts, golf outings, convention goers, special event attendees, those participating in local art and music festivals, and anyone who wants to immerse themselves in all that Palm Springs has to offer while taking advantage of the walk-to-town location.

Past guests have raved about how well-maintained, clean and comfortable this home is. Others have commented on the central location, the great layout, and the beautifully landscaped patios and pool area. "The owners have thought of everything," posted one recent guest. "The home exceeded our expectations. We will be back again next year!" Unverified local folklore claims the home was originally designed by Edwin B. Willis, who created the set for the 1939 film, The Wizard of Oz.

ABOUT THIS PROPERTY:

Walk to the Uptown Design District from this classic Palm Springs vacation retreat, located in the famed Movie Colony East. The current owners have preserved the original architectural style and chic ambiance of this story-book property, while updating it to appeal to modern-day vacationers. This home was built in the 1930s, the decade when silver screen legends like Lucille Ball, Bob Hope and Greta Garbo flocked to this neighborhood to relax and play beneath the radar of studio heads and Hollywood gossip columnists.

A throwback to the laid-back yet glamorous California-style of yesteryear, this lovingly restored home is nestled on an over-sized lot (nearly a half acre) just steps from Ruth Hardy Park. The property looks as though it was lifted from the pages of House Beautiful or Better Homes & Gardens. It is easy to imagine the likes of Spencer Tracey and Katherine Hepburn having a romantic rendezvous - dining alfresco on the rambling, spacious, saltillo tiled veranda.

From the walled and gated entry courtyard and the arbor over the font to the lush lawns, stone paths and bougainvillea-covered trellises - every inch of this home tells a wonderful story. There are towering Palms, gorgeous citrus trees, and a fabulous in-ground oval for spending leisurely afternoons in the warm desert sun and long evenings under the stars.

The simple sophistication and understated elegance carries over to the interiors where you'll find an open concept living room, and a well-stocked cook's kitchen with high-end, stainless steel appliances. There is also a farm house dining room that seats six to eight. The separate den features a bar, a gas fireplace and a comfortable daybed -- ideal for curling up with a good book or settling down for that late-morning nap.

Your large master quarters has a walk in closet, en suite bathroom, a California King Bed, a seating area with comfortable loungers, and direct access to the patio and pool area. The additional two-room guest suite has been handsomely appointed with a Queen size bed and an additional sleeping alcove where you will find two comfortable twin beds behind a set of beautiful French doors. This extra space is the perfect solution for teens, tweens and overflow guests.

Rates listed in our rate table are subject to change without notice and are higher on weekends, holidays, and special events.
