About the property

Large, 5 bed/5 bath property with tennis court and pool near legendary El Paseo.

This beautifully landscaped, mid century estate is IDEALLY located in one of the most desirable areas of Palm Desert, adjacent to The Vintage Club—Coachella Valley’s most prestigious country club.

The property is also only 5 minutes away from:

• El Paseo, the Rodeo Drive of the desert. Here you’ll find the best shopping and many of the best restaurants in the entire region.

• The Golf Resort at Indian Wells, Golf #1 PGA Tour Course You Can Play in California.

• The spectacular Indian Wells Tennis Garden, home of the annual BNP Parabis Open.

• The Living Desert, our remarkable zoo and botanical gardens, featuring 450 wild animals and fabulous activities for kids of all ages.

Built on two adjacent walled parcels totaling almost an acre, the main house is decorated in a comfortable Santa Barbara-style featuring warm Saltillo tile floors, cozy leather seating, and glass sliders facing the stunning pool and tennis court. The living area has a large, mounted flat screen TV and charming two-sided gas fireplace (shared with the dining area) around which you and the family can gather on cooler evenings.

The gourmet chef’s kitchen features a gas range, stainless steel appliances, and breakfast bar opening into a dining area large enough for your whole clan. Both conventional coffee maker and Keurig machine are available for your morning caffeine fix.

The three large bedrooms in the main house feature comfortable king beds, newly refinished en suite bathrooms, and glass sliders opening onto outdoor patio areas. Each bedroom has its own flat screen TV and DVR. The master retreat in the main house also features a gas fireplace and enormous walk-in closet. There’s a separate, fully equipped laundry room in the main house as well.

Offering two bedrooms with comfortable queen size beds, flat screen TVs/DVRs, and en suite bathrooms, the beautifully decorated, detached casita is a private oasis offering excellent separation of space for multi-family gatherings. The casita has its own back porch with lounge chairs, which is the perfect place for you to retreat with a good book.

The manicured grounds have multiple patios and seating areas, beautiful mountain views, and large grassy areas for croquet, volleyball, badminton, or whatever.

Resort-style amenities include:

• newly resurfaced, Pebble Tec swimming pool with waterfall

• newly resurfaced tennis court (also lined for pickle ball) with a basketball hoop at one end

• back patio with outdoor hot tub/spa

• outdoor kitchen with gas grill, wine fridge, beer fridge, and smoker

• three outdoor dining areas and multiple patios (so you can eat in the sun or shade, as you wish)

• high end outdoor furnishings including loungers, umbrellas and a variety of comfortable club and adirondack chairs all around the property

To ensure privacy for you, and peace and quiet for our neighbors, the property has two separate gated entries, two driveways, and a 2-car garage creating off-street parking for up to 8 vehicles.

We are committed to being good neighbors and meeting or exceeding all requirements for Palm Desert rental properties. Permit #4114.

About Jessica Spry

After living and working in the San Francisco Bay Area for 20 years (we still love you, SF!), we left our high pressure jobs to spend more time with our young children (10 and 12) and enjoy a slower pace of life. You can probably relate, right?. As big fans of mid century architecture and design, we were naturally attracted to the greater Palm Springs area, and decided to move here full-time in 2014. Like you, we're relatively new to the area, so we've spent months exploring everything the region has to offer (we have lots of recommendations if you'd like). We love our new desert life and are excited to share it with you!

Jessica Spry purchased this estate in 2014

Why Jessica Spry chose Deserts

Yes, it sounds like a cliche. But we fell in love with this house the moment we stepped through the door. Although it's a large property by desert standards, it felt cozy and welcoming. From the warm tile, to the natural wood and stone, to the sunny pool and tennis court, we felt immediately at home. Boasting 50 palm trees and spectacular mountain views, the grounds are thoughtfully designed to promote private rest and relaxation. We love the outdoor bar and grill, and the multiple seating areas around the property. The former owner is a successful Bay Area entrepreneur who only used the property occasionally, but kept everything immaculate for his guests (anyone remember Robin Masters from Magnum, P.I.?). We hope you'll enjoy our home as much as we do--and would love to hear about any improvements you might recommend.

What makes this estate unique

The property features resort-style amenities, including:

• newly resurfaced, Pebble Tec swimming pool with waterfall

• two outdoor dining areas and multiple patios (so you can eat in the sun or shade, as you wish)

Family Compound

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this home. It was very comfortable and had everything we needed and more. The outside area is amazing! There was so much space for the younger kids to play. We really enjoyed having a tennis court to ourselves. We love coming to the desert and have stayed many places but this was by far the family favorite!

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Three generations enjoyed our stay at the property. Well maintained pool, tennis court and hot tub added to our enjoyment and the five bedrooms offered privacy and comfort. We certainly will book the property again and we will recommend it to our friends.

Great location and great property!

A happiest 40th birthday celebration

  • 5 of 5

We had such an incredible time at this property. Tim met us at the house, and from there, all was seamless. The house is a proper 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom house with TONS of space for everyone. There are 2 sizeable lawns plus the pool, tennis court, and hot tub (all in close proximity to each other). The house was stocked with towels, sheets, toys-- anything you could want. Jessica even brought over some costumes for our little ones which they joyfully wore the remainder of our stay. Thoughtful landlords, beautiful and well-maintained property. You cannot go wrong here.

The property was gorgeous! All the comforts of home and much more!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time! The home was absolutely perfect - clean, well decorated, great entertaining features and so much more. The tennis court, pool, and hot tub made the property luxurious. It was hard for us to leave the house and do other things it was so nice! The kitchen made cooking easy, the bedrooms were perfect in comfort and size, and the outside was fantastic! We look forward to staying again!!! Thanks Jess and Tim!!!

Desert Oasis

  • 5 of 5

First off Jessica and Tim are awesome people and really went the extra mile to ensure our stay was amazing! The house and property are stunning and felt like we were staying at our own private resort, and had plenty of space to have family and friends over to visit. My husband and I are from the desert and moved away a year ago so it was fantastic to discover this place for when we come back home to visit. I would recommend the estate to anyone looking for places in the desert.

Really lovely experience!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my mother's 60th birthday here. The home was so comfortable for our entire family including a handful of small kids. Plenty of room to spread out and enjoy. Everything was so wonderful- we couldn't have asked for a better place! The owners were so accommodating and helpful- I can't say enough great things about this home! Loved it and hope to be back soon!! Thank you!!
