About the owner: My name is Cecilia Dighero and I was born in Chile from Italian parents. I came to the USA with a Fulbright scholarship to study English. I worked at the Chilean desk at the UN and as an International Representative for the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in N.Y.C. I have tought Spanish at Pepperdine University and I am currently the head of the Spanish Department for Adult Education at Santa Monica College. My husband, Ron House, has been an actor/playwright in London, New York and Los Angeles. Co-founder of the British underground theatre group 'Low Moan Spectacular'. He is co-author of some Broadway hits such as 'El Grande de Coca Cola' and 'Bullshot'. He is a five time published playwright and has had 2 movies produced, one of them by Beatle George Harrison. He has taught playwriting at UCLA, CalState LA, Mexico City & London among others. He is currently working at the LAFilm School. The inspiration for Rancho Mojave is Cecilia's 250 acre horse and cattle ranch in Chile.
Why the Owner Chose Pioneertown, CA, USA:
We discovered the high desert to get away from the stress of the large city. We fell in love with this area because of the silence, the pure air, the mystical open spaces, the trasparent light, the spectacular sunrises & sunsets and the canopy of stars. A true communion with nature.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Excellent place to unwind, to watch the star filled nights, commune with nature and charge your batteries. Lots of gentle trails for hiking and exploring. Gorgeous Joshua Tree National Park nearby. Lots of Art Galleries and famous Pappy & Harriet Palace only 5 min. away. Home of the world famous sound baths at the Integratron.
