Property description

Surrounded by the Anza-Borrego desert in the town of Borrego Springs, the Copley Estate residence was the home of Jim and Helen Copley, San Diego based newspaper magnates. They named the home 'Happy Days' in celebration of the 40 years that they oversaw the 5-star La Casa Del Zorro Resort located adjacent to their home. The newly renovated mid-century Happy Days home, maintains it's classic feel with modern updates throughout. The home features three complete bedroom/ bathroom combinations, accompanied by a separate private casita with two bedroom/bathroom suites.
Located at the southern end of our resort, Happy Days is in the perfect location, providing our guests with nothing less than a Magical - Experiential - Tranquil experience.
Our magnificent home features stylish interior designs with a southwest flare, accompanied throughout with our one of a kind signature art décor; by the wonderful Peter Lik photography collection. All while maintaining the classic vintage atmosphere.
With 8,000 square feet this spacious, 3 bedroom and 3 bathroom luxury home features an enormous master bedroom with one King bed, a second and third bedroom/ bathroom combination, both of which are furnished with a queen bed. All of the bathrooms in the estate are intricately designed from the ground up. Starting with the custom porcelain tile flooring, to the one of a kind wall paper and accents to the marble countertops that are embellished throughout the house. All three of our bathrooms in the main home are completed with a large porcelain tub and a free standing glass-enclosed shower.
The kitchen is a known favorite gathering space for family and friends, and this one is positively any legitimate connoisseur's delight. The estate comes with a completely furnished kitchen; a 4 range electric stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator and a quaint breakfast nook; equipped for the true gourmet. Adjoining the kitchen is the laundry room supplied with both washer and dryer.
The main living room is spacious and bright, allowing for every guest to have their choice of privacy or interaction. With two couches, a dining table and a wall mounted flat screen TV, the living room creates the perfect ambiance for any mood you may be in! Alongside the living room is the sunken bar which ups the notch of sophistication in the atmosphere.
The attached casita and pool in the backyard are just as tastefully furnished as the Happy Days home. When stepping into the backyard, instantly it's a marvelous feeling that take over creating that tranquil sedation igniting an inner need of wanting to come back for more!
The final piece to the home is the attached casita. The casita is truly in a league of its own in comparison to other guest homes. Immediately upon arrival into the casita it's as if the hands of time have been turned around. With that thought in mind, it should come with great ease to take a break from the hectic daily hustle and bustle of life and step into a world of ease and comfort remembering how life used to be; simple! Detail is far from lacking inside the Happy Days casita. Each element of design far exceeds everything that one would expect. Starting with the flooring that you simply cannot find anymore, to the cabinetry encasing our exclusive library and onto an absolute rarity; our signature cork wall covering, intricately embedded with copper. It's the little garnishing's in each suite such as the seasoned bubble television and our antique phones that are adorned here. Our first suite in the residence is a queen bed with full posts and the second suite is dressed with two twin beds.
An experience such as this is truly one of a kind!
