About the Property

4 Bd 3.5ba (with Den) 3100 Sq Ft Lake Front Home With Stunning Mountain Views

What sets this home apart from others on the lake is the privacy. The home is located on a corner lot and abuts a small greenbelt which means there is only a neighbor on one side. The patio/firepit area is set back from the lake and provides excellent privacy. The landscape lighting and firepit create a romantic and soothing ambiance as the sun sets behind the Santa Rosa Mtns. Cocktail hour takes on a whole new meaning! The desert plantings also afford additional privacy from surrounding homes. (cal king, 3 queens).

The floor plan is ideal as the Master Suite, Guest Suite, and additional 2 bedrooms are nicely separated. . 3 of the bedrooms as well as the den is equipped with a HD flat screen TV with premium cable.

The Kitchen/Great room is very well appointed and is an ideal gathering place. The kitchen has a eat up bar with four stools, ample high grade cookware, flatware, dinnerware etc.., double oven, microwave, and gas cook-top. You will find most everything you need to cook up a feast.

The great room is where we spend most of our time as it boasts a large sectional sofa, 60' LED flat screen, and plenty of books/board games for those relaxing evenings. The living room is another great comfortable gathering spot with a gas fireplace and ample seating for entertaining. The LR, kitchen, pool area, and Master Suite all have in-ceiling speakers and separate volume. controls.

The spa-like pool area has an in ground spa which spills over into the vanishing edge pool. There are ample chaise lounges, outdoor dining table, fire pit seating, and sectional outdoor couch.

There is a separate laundry room off the 3 large garage.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: My wife and I were born and raised in the Bay Area (East bay and Marin) and recently moved our family to Santa Barbara to enjoy the beach lifestyle. I graduated from UCSB and my wife form Cal. We have raised our 2 children in Marin county until relocating to Santa Barbara in 2010.

Why the Owner Chose La Quinta, CA, USA:
Over the last 17 years we have always vacationed in La Quinta at least once a year and often times more frequently. We have stayed at the LQ Resort and also rented homes in many of the other communities ranging from Rancho LA Quinta, to Legacy VIllas. However, it was not until a friend invited us to their home in Lake La Quinta that we discovered this special spot. We had never seriously considered buying a home in the desert until we experienced the lifestyle at lake La Quinta first hand. It is truly intoxicating and hooked us immediately.There is nothing more enjoyable than sitting in the spa sipping a glass of wine watching the sun reflect and the colors morph against the Chocolate Mountain range. We are of course biased...However, for us, lake La Quinta is the ultimate community in the ultimate desert town. We have always understood why La Quinta is named the 'Gem of the Desert' and for us, Lake la Quinta is 'The Gem' of all of La Quinta. .

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Besides the private ammenities at the home, Lake La Quinta also has a professional grade lighted tennis court, community pool, parks, and community gathering area for parties, and 24 hour security and gated access.
