Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I am a New Englander turned Californian since 1979. I live locally and in San Francisco. I am an active hiker, kayaker and go to the gym often. I am a semi-retired Realtor.

Why the Owner Chose Palm Desert, CA, USA:
I had visited the desert for years and always staying in hotels. I loved the area and loved Mid-Century everything my whole life.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I love the architecture, Walter S. White designed primarily churches. There are several of his homes in the neighborhood. I converted the wood fireplace to this glass over gas and love it. I have tried to make this home warm, comfortable, and clean so everyone will be happy here. I also love watching the sunset over the mountains from the pool area.
