About Catherine Francois
About the owner: A couple who loves to escape to the desert from their primary residence in Seattle, WA. After work opportunities brought them to the desert, they found this home in 2012 and did a massive 6-month remodel to restore the mid-century modern house (built in 1958) to its glory with modern, high quality, euro sleek touches.
Catherine Francois purchased this House in 2012
Why Catherine Francois chose Palm Desert
Palm Desert has great weather, sunshine, warmth and easy proximity to the coast. And the fact that the weather is the opposite of Seattle! PD is just a short plane ride away and always great weather and relaxing. Location was a big part of it- and it is hard to find a more convenient and fun location than this. The layout of the home was perfect with great open spaces for entertaining; the master bedroom was large and separated from the other two bedrooms - great for everyone's privacy! The outdoor spaces are just as enjoyable as the interiors! We often have trouble deciding where to start. Drink coffee in the front courtyard or in the back at the outdoor kitchen bar. Hang out by the fire or by the pool. Since we can see it all from the inside/out style living space and glass walls, choosing becomes less of a chore.
What makes this House unique
Getting up with the sun in the morning and going for a run is one of the best things- run through the neighborhood, or going to the trails a couple miles away to do the “bump and grind” run/hike with other fitness enthusiasts. Then, winding up with a cool-down walk on El Paseo and stopping at Starbucks for your morning coffee. Enjoy your day relaxing by the pool, using the BBQ at night, the outdoor fire pit, walking to what will be one of your new favorite restaurants for dinner, etc. A round of golf whenever you feel like it. Amazing evenings. You could have dinner every night for a year and not repeat a restaurant- however I do have some of favorites, just ask. Armando’s (by far) is the favorite, then Sullivan’s, Tommy Bahamas, many more. Or Happy Hour just about anywhere. Mamma Gina's, Firecliff, Daily Grill, Mastro’s, or if you need to find football- try Buffalo Wild Wings, Cactus Jacks - lots of options!! Incredible opportunities to enjoy local attractions. The local zoo, Joshua Tree (which will make you feel like you've never seen the night sky before), the Palm Springs Tramway (a must see and opportunity to take a relaxed stroll around Mount San Jacinto with breathtaking views of the Coachella Valley), just to name a few and not to mention the world renowned events, concerts and sporting events this area attracts!
