1/10

Carefully designed to frame spectacular nature, landscape and mountain views from nearly every window while presenting a magnificently luxurious living environment, this grand custom estate in Palm Desert is incomparable. Enviably located near the pinnacle of guard-gated Big Horn’s preferred mountain side, the vast single-level residence is a masterpiece of modern style, with sophisticated finishes and features adding to the allure of each living space. Settled at the end of a cul-de-sac, the homesite is nearly one-half acre and utilizes natural elements to ensure privacy. A lagoon-inspired pool with waterfall is complemented by a fire pit-warmed sitting area, a built-in BBQ bar, saguaros, intimate patios, updated landscaping, and a large driveway with guest parking leading to a 2 car garage with separate golf cart space.

 

Created by architect David Prest in 1994, the 4-bedroom, 5-bath home was impressively reimagined in 2009 by architect Kristi Hanson and designer Susan Fredman. Today, the estate evokes a soft-contemporary ambiance accentuated by custom entry doors, an atrium with bubbling pond, and a stunning living and dining area with towering ceiling, built-in seating, a dramatic fireplace, and a floor-to-ceiling window with slide-away glass doors and mountain views. A family room with built-in entertainment center flows effortlessly into an island kitchen with marble countertops, soft-close custom cabinetry, Thermador Professional appliances, and a sun-bathed breakfast room. Every bedroom is ensuite and features a private patio, including the fabulous master suite complete with a see-through fireplace, sitting room, dual walk-in closets and a lavish bath with jetted tub. Subtle indirect lighting, art lighting, fresh paint, tongue-and-groove wood ceilings, wood and tile flooring, and curvilinear walls further distinguish the residence, which extends approximately 5,172 square feet. New top-tier designer furnishings are included and artwork is available for purchase.
