This historic villa is one of the jewels of the Vista Las Palmas neighborhood in Palm Springs. Designed by the renowned architect Charles DuBois and built by the Alexander Company, the mid-century masterpiece features exquisite interior and alfresco living spaces for stylish relaxation and entertaining, along with five superb bedrooms opening directly to the terrace. After a recent, comprehensive renovation of the house and grounds, the villa offers an unparalleled experience of classic Southern California elegance enhanced by top-shelf contemporary comforts.
The 17,000-square-foot estate enjoys beautiful views of the surrounding Sonoran Desert hills. Savor enchanting days by the salt-water swimming pool, relaxing in the elevated hot tub, sunbathing on semi-submerged loungers, and plunging into the scintillating waters. Cook a barbeque lunch in the afternoon, and relish it alfresco in the gorgeous lanai. In the evening, behold the dreamy sunset light from the lounge, and kindle the fire pit in the nighttime breeze.
Expansive glass doors connect the terrace with the 3,500-square-foot interior, creating a lovely flow of space and air. Enjoy an elegant soirée with guests and family, sidling up to the superb bar for cocktails, and sitting together in the spacious lounge. Prepare delicious feasts in the gourmet kitchen, with its beautiful walnut cabinetry and ample island, before gathering around the lovely, ten-person dining table. The exquisite décor includes American and Danish modernist furnishings and original artwork, while contemporary features such as a Sonos sound system, Apple and Satellite TV, and a Lutron lighting-automation system ensure utter comfort.
The five bedroom suites—three with king beds, one with a queen, and one with two queens—all enjoy large glass doors to the terrace. The master bedroom, the primary king guestroom, and the double-queen room all feature ensuite bathrooms as well—the master’s with a stand-alone tub. Serenely luminous by day and tranquil by night, the bedrooms offer exquisite privacy for downtime and rest.
The villa is just a ten-minute walk from downtown Palm Springs and within minutes by car from a variety of renowned golf and country clubs, including Mesquite, Indian Canyons, Escena, and The Vintage. Palm Desert is just fourteen miles by car, while Indian Wells and Coachella are within easy reach.
