Desert Solstice is a true retreat for even the most discerning guest. Nestled in the Las Palmas neighborhood, this sprawling villa offers plentiful space for anyone seeking respite and relaxation in the Desert.
Located on a 2/3rd-acre corner lot in the heart of Las Palmas, this four bedroom/four and one-half bath home features 4,960 square feet of living space in its “U” shaped floor plan. On the western side of the property a private hard surface tennis court with a north/south orientation recalls the exclusivity and grandeur of this home’s heritage: a true Palm Springs Tennis Estate.
Two large gates provide access to a circular drive, welcoming guests to Desert Solstice. A large stone pergola with a vaulted ceiling covers the home’s main entrance with glass double doors greeting you. Expansive walls of sliding glass doors provide unobstructed views to the pool, patio and mountains beyond. Having undergone a thorough renovation in 2012, a true design esthetic can be seen throughout in vaulted ceilings, travertine floors, Plantation shutters and textile selections.
The large formal Great Room, spread over two levels, features a floor-to-ceiling stacked stone see-through fireplace anchoring both levels of the room. The upper Great Room offers a Bar with climate controlled walk-in Wine room, bar fridge and wet sink. The lower Great Room provides two distinct sitting areas with dual conversation couches facing each other, while club chairs and an oversized chaise spanning the width of the room provide space for reading or quiet relaxation.
The centrally located formal Dining Room provides seating for up to 10 guests, with a large Marconi Filament-style chandelier providing a unique industrial and modern touch. The large Chef’s kitchen is thoughtfully appointed with a Stainless Steel Thermador appliance suite including gas cook-top, dual ovens and a French door refrigerator. With plentiful workspace, meal preparation for even the largest gathering will be simple and easy. For casual dining, the kitchen offers a Breakfast Bar with seating for up to four, as well as a nook-style seating area with round-table seating for four more.
Just off of the Kitchen, the Den, anchored by a 52” Flat Screen Smart TV and Media Cabinet, provides numerous entertainment options, including premium cable and Blu-ray player. A sliding door opens out onto a patio with a BBQ grill and direct access to the tennis court.
The Master Suite is located in the southwestern corner of the home and is the perfect place to relax and unwind in privacy. Stepping down into the Suite, a custom California King-sized bed is the main focal point, with large sliding glass doors facing the pool to the east. The tall upholstered headboard is the perfect compliment to the rich wood floors.
The en-suite bath is a true Spa experience, with dual vanities, free-standing jetted tub, stacked stone fireplace, oversized glass / tile shower and separate water closet with bidet. A sliding glass door opens onto a semi-private patio with chaise lounges and western facing mountain views. The Master Suite also features an oversized walk-in closet with numerous built-ins, clothes bars and storage.
Guest Bedrooms also feature en-suite baths with single vanities and hand painted tile showers. The Guest Quarters located off the main entrance also feature a 40” HD Flat Screen TV with Blu-ray player.
A true Desert Retreat, Desert Solstice brings the indoor living to the Pool Patio, with an outdoor Dining Area, multiple chaise lounges, gas fire feature and a rectangular pool with elevated spa and spillover. An expansive overhang provides ample shade on all sides of the pool patio, for those seeking relief from the sun!
Extremely private, Desert Solstice is only a short drive to Downtown Palm Springs’ fine dining, art and culture.
