It’s post and beam construction, exposed masonry rock, vaulted tongue & groove ceilings, open floor plan, generous walls of glass and clerestory windows integrate the home into the natural surroundings to maximize enjoyment of the Palm Springs warm weather and sunshine. This stunning ranch home is set on a quiet cul-de-sac in the famous Vista Las Palmas neighborhood known for it’s distinctive architecture, A-list celebrities and unrivaled views of the San Jacinto Mountains. Alive with history and rich with character, it’s the ideal home for providing the ultimate vacation experience.

You’ll find the professionally designed interior of this distinguished property is a perfect mash-up between the charm and character of yesteryear juxtaposed with the modern day luxuries required of today’s discerning guests. The rooms are artfully appointed with comfort and style at every turn. The fashionable furnishings include sleek low sofas, chrome and wood accents, plush headboards, fun area rugs, nostalgic artwork & photographs, whimsical accessories, dramatic lighting and exquisite finishes and textures. The cool white walls and gleaming porcelain tile floors provide a soothing backdrop to the bold pops of color in lemon yellow, tangerine orange and peacock blue.

Floor-to-ceiling walls of glass, sliding doors and skylights provide a seamless flow between inside and outside while brightening the living spaces with generous natural light to take advantage of the abundant Palm Springs sun and beautiful mountain vistas.

The expansive living area offers lots of comfortable seating and many entertainment options. Snuggle up on the sofa to watch a movie on the 56” flat screen HDTV with Blu-ray DVD player. Gather with friends in the hip club seating area around the massive stone gas fireplace with twinkling glass crystals while listening to your favorite Itunes through the built-in stereo system.

The crown jewel of this property is the resort-style outdoor playground allowing you to experience the magnificent desert climate. The completely private and meticulously maintained grounds are fenced, gated and hedged to provide the utmost seclusion and safety for your guests. Lovely desert gardens abound every inch of the grounds filled with cactus, towering palm trees, ficus hedges, citrus trees and many varieties of succulent plants.

There’s also an outdoor shower and built-in gas BBQ with bar for your enjoyment.

All four glamorous bedroom retreats have ensuite baths so there’s no sharing! They are all separated from the main living area, entitling guests to peace and privacy. Each bedroom is luxuriously appointed with a King sized bed, TV & DVD player, hotel quality linens, new mattress, unique headboard, dramatic patterned accent wall, bold rug, stylish accessories and furnishings, playful artwork, and ample closet and dresser space.

It’s the ultimate Palm Springs getaway for modernism enthusiasts, family vacations, a romantic couples weekend or snowbirds looking for a private, relaxing, warm retreat. We strive to provide you all the comforts of home without the work. That is why we offer all our guests access to a local property manager on call to attend to your needs.
