Paradise On The Water’s Edge
There is no denying that Rancho Mirage and Palm Springs has been a special draw because of the beauty of the valley and its surrounding terrain, buffeted to the west by the majestic San Jacinto mountain range and to the east by the grandeur of Joshua Tree National Park. Early Spanish explorers called it, la palma de la mano de Dios - “the palm of God’s hand”. From this home within the gated community of the Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, you can celebrate the splendor, richness and culture of the Coachella Valley with the rich natural resources that make this part of the country unique. The Natural Springs, the wilderness areas of the Coachella Valley, the rich history of Art, Architecture and Fashion await you. A place where you can relax, stay active and just enjoy one the of the best vacation spots in California. Without a care in in the world….Welcome to Paradise!!
This lovely three bedroom with three full bath, 2640 sq ft home is located in the prestigious Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, surrounded by sweeping views of the lush green laws, majestic mountains, as seen across a crystal clear blue lake. Enjoy a magnificent sunrise from the kitchen window and watch the ever changing palette, as the sun crosses overhead and creates breathtaking sunsets across the western sky.
Entering through double doors, you are immediately taken back by a view that will take your breath away. You will see straight out across the rich green lawn, lake water views and the enchanting hues of mountains beyond. This is an end unit with only one common wall. It is a condo, but doesn’t feel like one. Everyone says “It feels like a house.” You will too.
The entry opens up to a light, bright and airy living room with high ceilings, a fireplace and color TV with Time Warner cable including HBO and Showtime. Each bedroom suite is located in a different wing of the home with its own bath and patio, allowing your guests maximum privacy, while the open areas of the home create a warm and welcoming place to gather and entertain. Open, yet still private. An ideal floor plan. There is a laundry room with washer and dryer. WiFi and utilities are included.
The Master Suite has a new walk-in custom closet, dual vanity, soaking tub and separate shower. From the comfort of the luxurious Cal-King bed, one can take advantage of the marvelous water view out the back. The second bedroom has a King Bed and also has its own bathroom suite with spacious closets and a private patio for outdoor living. The third bedroom has two twin beds and a bathroom that is also accessible from the main floor. This bedroom also has an office desk equipped with a printer if you need it. All three bedrooms are large size. All three bathrooms are equipped with double vanity sinks and separate bathtubs and showers.
The eat-in kitchen has windows on two sides creating easy access to an outdoor patio and view of the lake. Look for the grapefruit and orange trees out the window and watch the humming birds nest in the bird house outside the kitchen window. This spacious kitchen has ample spaces for cooking your favorite meals. There is plenty of counter space, a microwave, lots of cabinet space and all the tools, glassware, dishware you will need. New blender and coffee maker.
A formal dining room that looks out to a side patio has a large dining table that can accommodate a fun dinner party.
The back patio with table, lounge chairs and umbrella is a perfect place to hang out. Dine alfresco, bring out the cocktails or a good California wine and use the gas BBQ for your dinners. Take in the most magnificent setting and views you can imagine (It’s really hard to explain how great it is!)
If you go out, make sure you check the many restaurants in Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage and Palm Desert for their Happy Hours and take in those delicious $19 three course meals.
Each cluster of patio homes has its own pool and spa for their own use. Ours is gated and just steps away. (I do mean steps away) It’s as if it were your own pool and spa, but you don’t maintain it and your are secluded from it. My favorite thing to do is open the plantation shutters, go out at sunrise to the spa with my morning coffee and soak in the spa, while the steam rises and the sun comes up.
We have floatation chairs and rafts and towels (remember your sunblock and sunglasses) to take to the pool, while you swim or just float along. Bring your IPad, your music or a good book. It just doesn’t get any better than this.
This is a very special home. If you want to feel you are away, this is the place. We call it Paradise, our Desert Water Home or Water’s Edge. You can call it whatever you like. But we know you will enjoy it every bit as much as we do and create memories of your own.
