Overview

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.

The house was perfect. Beautiful, comfortable and had everything you would need for a great getaway vacation. Pool, tennis court, games.. who would want to leave?...but if you did it is the perfect location near shopping,

Restaurants and movie theatre.

Our whole group from 22-59 years old had an amazing vacation!

Thank you!!!!

Great house for a large group vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house with 10 people. The house itself has plenty of room for everyone to enjoy and still feel like you have your own space when you want. The pool area and outdoor spaces are beautiful as well and secluded from the neighbors for a very private feel. Additionally, the owners were very responsive to any questions we had leading up to and during our stay and were very accommodating for one of our guests who had a late departure time and requested to spend a few extra hours past checkout at the house.

Wonderful Vacation Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing home! The house is spacious, clean, and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need for entertaining. Five bedrooms with ensuite and comfortable beds. The backyard is very private, peaceful, and truly amazing with comfortable lounges, multiple patios, and seating areas with beautiful mountain views. Owners and their staff were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely rent again!

Your own private resort!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home! Perfect place for our family to gather in. It's like having your own private resort! We had our children and grandchildren with us. Everyone loved it. The heated pool and tennis court were huge hits!! Kitchen was very well equipped so no need to eat out unless you wanted too. The three bedrooms inside the house were all kings and very comfy. The casita has two SEPERATE private rooms, very nice but only connected by the outdoor deck. So if you have children staying in the casita with the parents in other room, be sure and bring a monitor with you. Owners and their staff were very friendly and helpful! Would defenitely go back to this house!! Location is perfect in Palm Desert, 20 minutes max to any of the attractions or great restaurants in Palm Springs or La Quinta, and very close for Palm Desert, Indian Wells and Rancho Mirage too!! Have to give a shout out to the Children's Museum there, the best hands on Children's Museum I have been too!! Fun for adults as well as little ones!!

It was wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

Great amenities, thoughtful owners. Pool , hot tub, tennis court were a lot of fun. Loved it that they had a closet with games. There were 6 adults and 3 children and there was something for everyone. The house has a terrific floor plan plus it's in a nice neighborhood. Quiet but close to whatever you need. The huge yard was a real bonus. We had some good meals using the grill and smoker. We'd return to this property!

Great location, tennis court and bedrooms/bathrooms.

  • 4 of 5

Great house for larger groups. It's unusual to find a rental house with 5 bedrooms with ensuite and comfortable beds. This is the first year that 8 tennis women have been happy. We loved having our own tennis court and walking to El Paseo. The owners just resurfaced the court which is a huge expense. Most rentals don't bother. The pool is nice with the waterfall. Wish it had a spa instead of a hot tub, but you can't have everything. Lots of yard but we mostly hung at pool/tennis court. We did miss having a fire pit. The bathrooms are very nice and updated. The rest of the house could use some maintenance, but mostly little things. The owner was very responsive whenever we had problems. The biggest problem is that you could see through the drapes and the pool bathroom door. Let's just say we saw more than 1 full moon on this trip. Overall, it is a nice house. The owner did a nice job in stocking the kitchen. The property manager is new and it shows, but with time this should improve. He was very nice and came over late at night with a new heater for the casita. We would definitely rent again.
