Nestled against the majestic San Jacinto foothills, this mid-century gem sits on 1/2 acre of lush, mature landscaping with mountain views. Lemon, grapefruit, orange and lime trees mingle with bird of paradise, blossoming oleander hedges and tall glistening palm trees.

Enjoy your morning on the private patio as the rising sun turns the nearby foothills pink and gold. At the end of the day, gather around the built-in gas fire pit with a glass of wine while the sun sets behind the pristine desert hills that are home to the protected Bighorn mountain sheep. Soon the stars will sparkle as you marvel at the stunning mountain silhouette.

Amenities: This single story, Alexander style home underwent a complete renovation in 2014 adding many modern upgrades and boasts all the amenities needed to ensure a memorable, comfortable vacation. We kept the best features: the circa 1957 rock fireplace, the open beamed ceilings, the sparkling kidney-shaped pool and the front wall of windows that look into the desert landscaping and foothills.

Outdoor Living: Relax in the shade of the large eucalyptus tree or enjoy the sun on your chaise lounge next to the sparkling kidney shaped pool. The pool area features lush landscaping and outdoor dining seating for four along with four chaise lounges. A second patio is directly off the guest king is perfect for your morning coffee. Adjacent to the dining room is another outdoor dining set with seating for four and a gas barbecue. Enjoy fresh herbs and tomatoes from the salad garden.

Artwork & Lighting: The entire house features original contemporary artwork in every room, most of which was created by the owner during his 35 years as an art professor. Most of the lighting is on dimmers, allowing you to set the mood.

Location: Rancho Mirage is centrally located in the beautiful desert of Coachella Valley. Palm Springs airport is just 20 minutes away. This tranquil location, nestled in a beautiful wind protected cove, belies the fact that world class dining, shopping and entertainment is less than a mile away. Magnesia Falls Cove is a quiet, walkable neighborhood of single family homes. There are no overhead power lines or bright street lights to compete with the desert night sky.

You will enjoy easy access to 'The River', a large dining, entertainment and theater complex located just blocks away. Indian Wells Tennis Gardens, the upscale shopping and great restaurants at El Paseo and Sunnylands Historic Estate are all within a short drive.

Kitchen: The kitchen features all new stainless steel Frigidaire Gallery appliances including a gas range, french double door refrigerator with front access ice/water dispenser, and an easy to reach microwave. The wine cooler will keep your bottles the perfect 55 degrees. Granite counter tops with a lovely onyx back splash provide plenty of counter space. In the center of the kitchen is a beautiful 9 foot long wood island providing plenty of room to prepare and serve dinner. The gourmet kitchen is stocked with quality pots, pans and everything you will need for that memorable meal. Adjacent to the kitchen is a vintage round dining table with seating for six and a view to the garden.

In the pantry you will find olive oil, balsamic vinegar, sea salt & pepper, tea, coffee, and a few other basics. The spice rack contains 24 herbs and spices along with a pepper grinder. Aluminum foil, baggies, wax paper, plastic wrap, parchment paper, coffee filters, dish soap, dishwasher soap, laundry detergent, dryer sheets and garbage bags are provided as well.

Living Room: The large living room features a beautiful gas- fired fireplace, original art, and a large wall of windows looking out to the desert landscaping and pristine mountain views.

Master Suite: The master bedroom is stylish and comfortable with plantation shutters and private access to the pool. It features a tempurpedic style California King bed, an en suite bathroom and a 40 inch flat screen TV.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: An art professor and a concert/festival producer enjoyed the foggy North Coast of California for over 35 years. During a visit to Palm Springs to check out Modernism Week we fell in love with the sun, mountain beauty and amenities of the Coachella Valley!

Why the Owner Chose Magnesia Falls Cove, Rancho Mirage, CA, USA:
We love our 1/2 acre private lot with the mountain backdrop. The house had everything we appreciate about mid-century architecture: vaulted and open beamed ceilings throughout, original rock fireplace, vintage shaped pool and lots of glass with views to the outdoors.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We enjoy the quiet residential neighborhood (it's not a gated community). At night we feel like we are out in the desert, watching the setting sun make a stunning silhouette out of the nearby foothill mountains which provide protected habitat for the Bighorn Sheep. If we are lucky we can hear the howl of the coyotes in the hills. Yet we are only minutes away from world class shopping, theaters, zoo & botanical garden and so many great restaurants.
