Property description

We welcome you to our little piece of Paradise!!

This inviting and private 1360 square foot home is located on a large cul-de-sac lot near the top of Cathedral City Cove. The Cove, a beautiful hillside neighborhood, is well known for it’s star-gazing skies (no street lights allowed) and incredibly tranquil and quiet nights. There are 3 beautifully furnished bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a large private backyard with salt water pool and picturesque views of the Santa Rosa Mountains.

The living room is complete with plush furnishings, large flat screen TV and DVD with Netflix, Pandora etc. access. The fully equipped dining and Kitchen area has everything the gourmet or casual cook needs with easy access through sliding glass doors to the pool and backyard. There are ample linens and towels for inside and outside use.

The Master: Amenities include a plush pillow top California King, ample dresser and night stand space, private bathroom and separate entry from/to the pool area as well as flat screen television with DVD player.

The Double: This double-size room includes two Full pillow-top beds, long dresser and tall chest of drawers and ample closet space. Sliding glass doors open to the rear porch sitting area overlooking desert landscaping and majestic pine trees.

Queenie: The 3rd bedroom boasts a Queen pillow top bed and ample storage for the second couple or older siblings.

The oasis like backyard features rose bushes, pine trees, desert vegetation and a refreshing saltwater pool. A covered lanai, season changing lawn and elevated rear deck surrounds the swimming pool with expansive mountain views that change hourly and afford spectacular starry nights. There are pool amenities, loungers, patio chairs, tables, and a covered eating area.

The home is conveniently located south of Highway 111 between Palm Springs and Rancho Mirage. The location is perfect…close to everything...yet away from it all!! Access to miles of hiking trails lined with native cactus, smoke trees and fragrant wild desert sage without getting having to get in the car.

Within a very peaceful hillside environment, it's still only 10 minutes away from Palm Springs and Palm Desert. A short drive and you have access to movie theatres, including an IMAX, shopping, restaurants, golf courses and Palm Springs International Airport. The Joshua Tree National Park, Aerial Tramway, Cabot Pueblo Museum, Palms to Pines Drive and Aqua Caliente Indian Canyons are all a 1 hour or less drive away.

Fewer than 5 miles away -- less than a 10 minute drive is Palm Springs' Tahquitz Creek Golf Resort, recently rated “One of the Best Places to Play” by Golf Digest. A plethora of additional public and private Golf courses are nearby as well as Tennis Courts, Sports and Fitness activities and many excellent Delis and Restaurants!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: My name is Sean O'Rourke. I'm a native Californian and pharmacist/Golfer who lives in Escondido with my beautiful wife Christel and three chitlins, Brian, Christopher and Toireasa-Marie.

Why the Owner Chose Cathedral City Cove, Cathedral City, CA, USA:
I moved to the Desert at the beginning of my career and this is the first house I bought. A major fixer at the time and so worth it. The quiet serenity and amazing views of the upper cove always brings me to a wonderfully calm and loving sense of wellbeing. This is the house where my wife, Christel, and I began our relationship, had our wedding rehearsal dinner and have continually infused our love into this property for 20 years.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Laying in the sun by the pool and enjoying the wonderfully maintained landscape and everchanging mountain views in total privacy and serenity. Playing Golf and Hiking. Going to the nearby Casinos. Shopping in Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage. Wine Tasting in Palm Springs. Bike Riding and Going to movies at our Nearby IMax or going to 'the River' in Rancho Mirage.
