***THIS PROPERTY IS NOT LISTED ON CRAIG'S LIST***

Bring your friends and family to experience the relaxed Palm Springs desert lifestyle and the unique charm and elegance of this Spanish style villa centered in the Palm Springs historic Movie Colony neighborhood. This midcentury CA ranch home circa 1950 was completely rebuilt and expanded in 2004 to a custom Mediterranean masterpiece oozing with character and style. The Spanish Revival and Moorish “Old World” inspired décor is skillfully melded with the modern amenities of a traditional California ranch home. The stylish harmony of artistic and luxury features include hand textured walls, beautiful mix of distressed wood furniture, rustic Saltillo tile floors, hand forged wrought iron accents, stucco archways, plantation wood shutters, custom drapery & window shades, organic fabrics, designer chandeliers & sconce lighting, ceiling fans, soothing natural color tones and whimsical art objects. This enchanting home will delight your senses creating a perfect setting for a most memorable vacation experience.

Ideally suited for relaxing and entertaining, the spacious open floor plan with 10ft ceilings creates a seamless flow between living room, kitchen, family room and outdoor courtyards. The welcoming living room with comfortable yet elegant tufted furniture is the ideal spot for quiet reading, conversation or curling up on a cool night in front of the cozy gas fireplace.

Centered in the heart of the home is the fully equipped chef’s kitchen featuring large black granite prep island, Bosch gas cooktop, built-in microwave & wall oven, large walk-in pantry, French style refrigerator with ice maker, double sinks with water filtration system, wine refrigerator and dark wood distressed cabinets. There’s also a breakfast bar for quick meals or watching the chef in action.

This home offers many entertainment options to enjoy your stay. Host your family or guests in the chic dining area adjoining the kitchen, perfect for holiday gatherings or an intimate dinner. Then after dinner you and your guests can relax in the family room with deep cushioned seating and built-in entertainment center housing a 54” flat screen HDTV, Blu-Ray Smart DVD player, Direct TV with movie channels and stereo sound system with CD/IPOD capability. Or you can choose to gather in the separate cabana with another 54” flat screen HDTV and plenty of casual seating. Open to the pool area and courtyard by an expansive sliding glass door and floor to ceiling glass walls, this cabana is perfect for providing a separate amusement space from the main house. Kids can play video games in the cabana while adults enjoy quiet conversation or a movie in the family room.

Bathed in year round sunshine, the magnificent outdoor-living environment is what makes this property truly special. The completely private and meticulously maintained grounds are walled, gated and hedged with over 80 ficus trees to provide the utmost seclusion and safety for your guests, children or furry friends. The western views of Mount San Jacinto, soaring 10,000 feet above the desert floor, are simply breathtaking. Discover your own private garden of Eden landscaped with a variety of desert flora, towering fan palm trees, flowering shrubs, potted plants, cacti and desert ornamentals.

Explore the variety of outdoor living spaces to suit all your leisure activities. Float aimlessly in the kidney-shaped SALT WATER pool with easy remote control operation. Soak your cares away in the elevated spa with waterfall that cascades into the pool over a tumbled stone spillway. For sun worshipers, there are plenty of chaise lounges to enjoy a full day of sun from the west-facing patio. If shade is what you crave, hang out in one of the deep seating collections under the covering of the wood beamed overhangs in either courtyard. Sip morning coffee while watching the sunrise in the front courtyard or savor sunset cocktails in the back courtyard. By night, enjoy poolside dining under a canopy of twinkling desert stars. A magical setting at night with 2 chandeliers and strands of pendant lights for romantic celebrations. There’s also a natural gas professional stainless steel BBQ that’s ready for your vacation cookout.

All three bedrooms are furnished with comfort and tranquility in mind. Each is nicely appointed with high quality linens, plenty of closet space, colorful artwork, ceiling fans and stylish carpet. The spacious master suite is a private retreat with a grand rich wood entry door, sitting area, CA King bed with leather headboard, 40” flat screen HDTV, Blu-ray DVD player, access to the pool and spa through glass sliding doors and spectacular mountain views. The sumptuous en suite bath offers a spacious walk-in glass and custom tile enclosure with double showerheads, double marble-top vanity sinks, antique bronze fixtures, crystal chandelier and enormous walk-in closet with custom shelving. The first guest bedroom offers a CA King bed with scroll iron headboard, 32” flat screen HDTV, Blu-ray DVD player and unique furnishings. The second guest bedroom features a daybed with twin mattresses, 24” flat screen HDTV and handy desk. The second full bath offers a custom tile shower and tub, beautiful wood cabinet vanity with granite top and antique bronze fixtures.

For our guests added convenience we offer a separate laundry room with full size Samsung large capacity washer and dryer, WiFi, Direct TV with movie channels, phone service with unlimited long distance to US and Canada, estate disposal service and a gated driveway with off street parking.
