About the property

3100 Sq Ft - Gated Estate Home w/3 br, 3 ba, Private Pool, Large Chef Kitchen

Completely refurnished and redecorated in and out. Great detail went into its design, color and finishing to maximize its size and take advantage of the fantastic views of the surrounding Santa Rosa Mountains. This walled, private estate home is a true paradise for relaxing, dining and entertaining. One-half mile to Old Town La Quinta and only 3 miles to the Polo Fields and Tennis Gardens. Surrounded by innumerable golf courses and is located one mile from SilverRock Resort and Golf Course that is open to the public. Indoor and outdoor spaces are large, open and comfortable. Plenty of room to play.

The spectacularly large kitchen is equipped with two sinks, a six burner Dacor range with griddle, a side by side refrigerator with ice maker and filtered water, Bosch dishwasher, Dacor microwave and all small appliances. Plenty of room for several cooks to combine their culinary skills into fabulous meals. Service for 16 including platters, bowls and serving pieces for every type of meal. Acrylic glassware and melamine plates for outdoor entertaining. A fully stocked spice cabinet is there for putting together a gourmet meal.

All bedrooms are furnished with dual control Sleep Number beds and high quality linens and towels. Pool towels are also provided. A full sized Queen raised air mattress is available with its own linens for that extra couple or kids to sleep on. A Pack ‘n Play crib with changing table and a high chair are at the house for the wee ones. The house is equipped with a water softener system and water filter for great tasting water. We are dog friendly too.

A separate heated/air-conditioned game and exercise room hosts an exercise bike, treadmill and elliptical trainer. A large puzzle/game table, leather sofa with chaise and recliner and an air hockey table is there for your enjoyment.

The over a quarter of an acre lot is completely landscaped with mature trees and shrubs. Lots of outdoor space for lounging and dining including a 15 x 30 pool with sun shelf and spa plus a 15 x 25 gazebo with fans and lights for outdoor enjoyment. A truly special place to unwind and enjoy the desert life for a few days or several weeks.

Why Ted & Deanna Starr chose Desert Club Estates

We chose the property for its location, expansive size of the lot, spectacularly large chef's kitchen, large open living area with a fabulous yard and pool, the stunning views and the private walled oasis feeling.

What makes this house unique

Easy walking distance to Old Town La Quinta, three miles from the Polo Grounds and Indian Wells Tennis Gardens. Easy access to dining, shopping, biking and hiking areas.

Beautiful, spacious, very clean home!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay this past Labor Day weekend at this house! This home was so spacious, beautifully decorated, and very clean! The kitchen is so open and very well equipped. We literally just needed to bring food and everything else was provided. The pool was perfect for the kids. The Palm Springs heat was bearable due to the umbrellas around and IN the pool. Kids were swimming pretty much all day! Not to mention, the AC in the house worked so well, we didn't even notice how hot it was from inside the house! We truly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be returning to this home~ even during the summer!! Thank you Ted and Deana for everything!

We will be back.

We have rented quite a few beautiful homes in the desert, but this home without a doubt, has been the best in terms of the attention to detail. Well stocked and our every need had been anticipated by the owners. The Starrs were great to work with. Thank you for sharing your home with us.
