Beautiful Luxury Villa For 6 People Perched Above Palm Springs
Desert Knoll is a beautiful luxury home on 1/3 of an acre on a great location in the hills above Palm Springs. Desert Knoll isolates its 6 guests from neighbors, street and wind with privacy hedges and trees on three sides, yet it provides sweeping 270* vistas of the desert, mountains and a great southern exposure. Desert Knoll is NOT a Party house. From the moment you enter the front gate you'll enjoy the impressive desert modern architecture, high end finishes, stylish modern furnishings, and gorgeous artwork in this steel, glass and concrete masterpiece. Every guest comments the property is even better in real life than in the pictures you are seeing.
Desert Knoll is conveniently located 5 minutes from downtown Palm Springs, on a quiet street overlooking the Coachella Valley with the San Jacinto Mountains right behind it. This is Not a Party house and if that is the main focus of your trip, this is Not the right house. City of Palm Springs ID #2392
Desert Knoll is designed with an eye to the classic contemporary architecture that defines the Palm Springs lifestyle; open & exciting. The flat roof, 14' ceilings, clean lines and wide expanses of glass provide panoramic views, abundant natural light, and erase the line between indoors & out for seamless living & entertaining. At first look, the house blends in perfectly with the desert terrain; huge boulders accented with natural landscaping indigenous to the area. As you approach the tall glass entry, you'll immediately understand the scale & volume of the house. The oversized entry hall with towering ceilings is formal, yet inviting. Desert Knoll was built for entertaining in style. The giant sliding walls of glass in the living room disappear into the wall to make a large open-air pavilion facing the new black bottom rock pool and view, providing plenty of lounge seating for everyone, either in front of the indoor living room wood fireplace or around the outdoor fire pit.
The large modern chef's kitchen features high end appliances from A to Z and has a convenient pass-through breakfast bar to the living/dining room. It also provides added privacy for dinner party preparations with a butler's pantry directly behind the kitchen, where you'll find an extra ice machine, wine refrigerator and laundry facilities. For extra flexibility, there are additional large-capacity laundry facilities in the garage. In addition to the generously sized dining table for eight in the main living area, there is an additional outdoor dining table for eight and a gas barbecue grill just outside the kitchen.
Once inside, the walls and gates that secure the property and protect its privacy, the setting is a verdant green tropical landscape dotted with gorgeous outdoor furniture that has a luxurious cooling effect to the eye & the senses.
The Master suite offers a King size bed, walk-in closet and generous private bathroom with jetted soaking tub and walk-in rain shower, as well as a private sitting patio outside the bathroom and second patio facing the pool. The second Master bedroom features a King size bed that can be separated into Twin beds when needed, a private bathroom with walk-in shower, and a private patio off the bathroom. The third bedroom has a King size bed, a built-in desk space and direct access to the pool. In the hallway just outside this bedroom is a full guest bathroom with walk-in shower. All three bedrooms feature brand new comfortable beds and quality linens, so everyone gets a 'good bedroom' in this luxury home.
One of the best features of Desert Knoll is the private pool deck out back. The sparkling blue swimming pool, bubbling spa and shaded lounge area with water misters and a gas fire pit are great places to hang out with a cocktail and enjoy the view to such well-known neighborhoods as Little Tuscany, Chino Canyon, Old Las Palmas and Vista Las Palmas in the foreground, all the way to South Palm Springs in the distance. In New Years, sit back and enjoy the fireworks with a cocktail in your hand.
The house is protected by a 24 hour alarm system and it has high capacity WiFi for the house and grounds. Each room is equipped with a large flat screen HDTV, DVD players and Bluetooth docking radio clocks. There is Netflix, Amazon, HBO and more available in every room and living room. There is a 2 zone Bluetooth high end stereo system that covers the whole house, plus a Bluetooth sound bar in the living room next to the 55' HDTV with DVD. There is also a printer, scanner, fax for your basic office needs and a small 10 bottle wine refrigerator for your better vintages.
The house has a large book selection of diverse topics, various water toys and floats, multiple toys for 1 year olds to 5 or so, a golf rack for your clubs and shoes,
Desert Knoll strives to be as green as possible. It has a 60 panel solar system, LED lighting, desert landscaping were possible, smart appliances and smart home features. It also boasts a large back up gas powered generator for the more than occasional PS power outage.

Luxurious, sparkling clean, and private modern house in best PS location
This is a beautiful modern house with nice furnishings in an upscale, quiet, and low-light neighborhood in the hills. It is totally private, although being in town. The views of the mountains on both sides are wonderful, and there is a big sky view for star gazing at night or watching sunrises and sunsets. The indoor and outdoor furniture are new, clean, and comfortable. The kitchen has all types of dishes and cookware and quality appliances. There are two washers and dryers. The ice maker in the butler's kitchen was handy. There is an attached garage, which was nice, especially with the heat. Outdoors are several areas for hanging out, and you can move from one to the other if the sun is too strong. The pool is nice for floating around--it is small but sufficient. The water was crystal clear and did not smell of chlorine. The outdoor spa was wonderful and also exceptionally clean. The tall ceilings, stone floors, and insulated walls keep the house comfortable even in the heat, but there is A/C. We liked using the misters outside. Bedrooms are nice, and all have ceiling fans. The master bedroom has a large walk-in closet. This is a really nice house, nicely decorated and spotlessly clean and well maintained. We had to force ourselves to go out. Due to its location on the NW side of PS, it has easy access to the airport, restaurants, grocery stores, and nice shopping--away from the all the crowds and traffic. Robert is highly responsive and will take care of you. We plan to return!
This is a very nice, contemporary, fully equipped house on the north west side of Palm Springs.
This house is a very attractive, contemporary (which was our preference) house, rather than a 50's modern. It is very fully equipped from dishware to outside fire pit to a garage for a car. Everything was in working order. The patio and yard were pleasant places to spend time. The neighborhood is quiet and attractive. The owner was responsive to questions and provided helpful suggestions for shopping.
Wonderful weather, wonderful house ; the owner was very accommodating, patient, and professional🤗
I give it an 11 out of a 10!!
Our family truly enjoyed our too short stay at this beautiful property. It had all the bells and whistles of a first class, luxury home and we were enamored and very comfortable. I am not one to enjoy regular use of a spa, but it called my name every night under the beautiful star lit sky. We will be back for sure.
Breathtaking! A perfect 10!!
What an amazing property! My husband and 4 friends met in Palm Springs for a 5 day getaway. We planned to go out to dinner 3 of the 4 nights we were there, but only left the villa once for dinner. The home was so beautiful; we decided that staying in and relaxing and cooking in the well appointed kitchen was what we all preferred to do. The hot tub, pool, and fire pit were icing on the cake.
Robert, the owner, was more than helpful, answering our questions immediately.
We all travel often, and this gorgeous property is one we will never forget and hope to return to in the near future.
Lovely, quiet, well appointed.
The house was extremely well stocked with everything, serene setting; the outdoor space was perfect with lovely fire pit/hot tub and pool. Robert was extremely responsive to our questions.
