About the Property

3 bedroom, 3 bath

3 bedroom, 3 bath new home with unique desert landscaping on 5 acres is surrounded by mostly undeveloped land. Enjoy walks on Turquoise Ridge on an informal trail that runs the ridge top, south to Rattlesnake Hill and onto Lookout Hill. Fantastic views in all directions include Joshua Tree National Park, Mount San Jacinto, and Mount San Gorgonio, and the towns of Joshua Tree and Yucca Valley. If you are intrigued by the many paintings displayed in the house, you can arrange with the artist owner to see his neighboring art studio/gallery.
