About the Property

Come and enjoy a truly special experience at Hacienda Serena.

Hacienda Serena represents a beautiful and sensitive renovation of a 1940's period hacienda down to the smallest details. The huge mature trees featured in the native desert landscaping are just one of the highlights of this property.
Enter through the gates to an enchanting courtyard with fountain, wide veranda, and hanging antique lanterns.
Through the front door you will find soaring beamed ceilings enhanced by restored vintage light fixtures and custom wrought iron grill work.
The gourmet kitchen features colbalt blue-finished Viking appliances, with wet bar, complimentary tile back splashes, and rough-cut limestone counter tops.
This 4 bedroom 4 bath home sleeps 10 comfortably with a queen-size hide-a-bed sofa available in addition to the all new California king-size master bed, queen sized guest room, 2 twin bed room and a queen sized bed in the casita.
The home features new flat screen televisions in the family room, casita, and each of the bedrooms along with updated WIFI capabilities throughout the property. Each of the 4 bathrooms features the same attention to detail with the use of the same tile work, antique cabinetry, and restored or custom lighting.

In the private back yard, flag stone and concrete decking ties the pebble-tech salt water swimming pool and spa to the fire pit, outside dining area, and separate casita to the completely renovated landscaping.
Truly a a casually elegant and intimate living experience.
The property is located within 5 minutes of up-scale shopping at famous El Paseo Drive along with other major shopping and entertainment centers and museums. Other popular attractions include The Living Desert Zoo and Gardens, Sunnylands (the Annenberg estate), numerous hiking and biking trails, golf, the Children's Discovery Museum, The Indian Wells Tennis Garden, home of the annual BNP Barabas International tennis tournament, and the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway.
The property is centrally located to all events in the Coachella Valley such as the Palm Springs Film Festival, the Stagecoach and Coachella Music Festivals, the Humana/ Bob Hope Golf tournament, and many others.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: One of the owners of this property was born in the southwest and has an experienced eye for authentic southwestern architecture while the other is a trained professional interior designer with ample experience in decorating exclusive homes in the desert.

Why the Owner Chose Magnesia Falls Cove, Rancho Mirage, CA, USA:
This property was purchased because of it's unique location and architectural style. It is completely unlike anything we have seen in 35 years of vacationing and owning other properties in the desert because it is not the standard golf course planned community removed from any amenities.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
After a very short time in this property you will find that you will be transported to a simpler way of living while at the same time enjoying all of the modern amenities that both the house and the immediate surrounding area afford.
