About the Property
Hillside Home With Three Master Suites, 3.5 Baths
This ultra energy efficient desert home with spectacular views across the entire Coachella Valley is a showcase of modern design and technology. It was constructed in 2003 as the “Energywise House”, under the supervision of noted “This Old House” program host, Bob Vila.
The home is on a 1/2 acre lot in a very private enclave in the Mesa neighborhood of Palm Springs, and features 3005 square feet of unique living space, including a private guest house, large pebble tech salt water pool and spa, beautiful desert landscaping and an electronically operated gate for utmost privacy.
The main house has a spectacular great room that opens to the full-length balcony through Fleetwood sliders that disappear into the walls. It also features a dramatic gas fireplace. The kitchen boasts a Subzero refrigerator and separate wine cooler, maple cabinetry, Caesar stone counters, Decor commercial grade gas stove and oven, built-in Decor microwave, Kitchen Aid trash compactor, garbage disposal, and a top-of-the line Miele dishwasher.
The two main house master suites each have their own terraced patios and large bathrooms featuring oversized showers (one of which opens to a desert garden). The large private guest house includes a coffee bar with refrigerator, and a fireplace.
