This 4 bedroom/ 3 bath private residence (including a separate 1 bedroom/ 1 bath Casita for older kids or invited weekend friends) was originally purchased as the owners personal residence with all high end furniture either collected over time or borrowed from other family homes. No fingerhut or IKEA snap together book shelf’s or dressers. No cheap or garage sale appliances either. Everything was purchased brand new at Macy’s or Pacific Sales.
The privately gated community of Mountain Gate is truly one of the most pristine in all of the Coachella Valley. The HOA rules regarding perfectly maintained landscape with all homes exteriors being in flawless ship shape condition are strictly enforced. One or two stray weeds? Write up Trash cans on the street the night before or the night of pick up? Write up. Any car parked on the street after night Fall? Write up. But Mountain Gate was never designed as a Time Share at Vacation Village. There are three beautiful pool areas as well as lighted tennis courts. The community also had large grassy areas for field sports as well as basketball courts. It was well planned and developed?
