About the Property

3 BR, 2 BA, w/pool, huge courtyard, views, mature landscaping, on 3/4 of an acre

This quaint and cozy mid-century modern home is a mere stroll (about a block and a half) from Anza Borrego State Park, yet still close to town. Located in the quiet Sun Gold neighborhood, the home is surrounded by huge fan palms, red ocotillos, palo verde, smoke trees, and a wide variety of cacti that bloom every spring. Enjoy golf, a scenic hike or a bike ride in the morning, a refreshing dip in the pool at midday, a nap, massage, or a stroll through art galleries in the afternoon, and a cocktail in the private courtyard under a star-filled night sky unspoiled by civilization.

This mid-century modern home was built in 1962 and is appointed with art and furnishings of the era, with a little bit of desert touches throughout. The huge private courtyard, pool and lounge chairs with matching umbrellas invite you to unplug and relax in your own mini-resort. Whether you choose to swim, sunbath, read, or simply catch an afternoon nap on an over-sized floatie, you will feel your troubles melt into the recesses of yesterday before you know it.

Our favorite local bar and restaurant, the Red Ocotillo and Crazy Coyote are within walking distance at the Palms at Indianhead Resort. Other classic bars, karaoke, and eateries are less than a ten-minute drive into town. The local grocery 'The Center Market' offers standard fare and a surprising variety of organic and local foods and herbs. The kitchen has most everything you'll need, and a gas BBQ grill is available on the patio.

Car: Recommended

Visitors enjoy incredible one-of-a-kind desert vistas and diversity of year-round activities such as golf, tennis, hiking, biking, star gazing, bird-watching, swimming, nature walks, photography, shopping, antiquing, painting, and various off-road activities. Artist Ricardo Breceda's 'Sky Art' collection of nearly 200 pieces of metal sculptures scattered about the desert landscape are a must-see. From dinosaurs to wild horses, scorpions and tortoises--even a 50-yard-long magical serpent that appears to cross under the road--capture the imagination of young and old. Within 1 1/2 blocks from the house lies Anza-Borrego State Park, the largest State Park in CA, and home of more than 100 day hikes and trails. Rangers and volunteer experts on the park are indispensable in helping guide visitors toward activities that match their skill levels and interests. Tours and classes are held regularly. In spring, people come from all over the world to witness and photograph the unique splendor of wildflowers that bloom in a splatter of colors from other-worldly plant varieties. Golfers enjoy golfing on seven golf courses, some designed by renowned golf course designers, and tennis lovers can get their game on at any number of local courts. The genius of local artists blossoms from various galleries about town, including the gorgeous new Borrego Art Institute minutes away in the center of town. Mid-century modern architecture, some designed by widely respected architects such as Modernist William Kesling who designed many of the earliest structures, can be enjoyed throughout the valley. Picturesque moon-like landscapes and badlands provide a perfect backdrop for an evening picnic as the sun sets behind the silhouetted Indianhead mountainscape.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: My wife, Cheryl, and I have been happily married for 24 years. We are blessed with two grown daughters, one who is still in college. They are the light of our lives. Our little family has been visiting the wonderful little town of Borrego Springs for nearly 15 years. It was love at first sight. The peace and quiet from the hubbub of daily civilization calms the nerves immediately upon arrival. The year-round sunshine warms the body and spirit and as an International Dark Sky Community, star gazing is unparalleled.

Why the Owner Chose Borrego Springs, CA, USA:
We fell in love with this place the moment we laid eyes on it. Its mix of mid-century modern charm and desert oasis appealed to our aesthetic and our fascination with the surrounding desert.
