This ridge-side luxury residence is located in Vista Las Palmas with more than 4,200 square feet of indoor – outdoor desert living. The reinterpreted modern design by Bret Thoeny, AIA of Boto Design Architects, was inspired by other mid-century architectural homes in the surrounding neighborhood such as Richard Neutra’s Kaufmann House, and other notables homes designed by Albert Frey and Craig Ellwood.
The residence is situated on rugged terrain as a contemporary showcase rising out of the foothills of Mt San Jacinto. The breathtaking architecture with four-bedrooms is its own desert oasis. Modern desert landscape paves the incline driveway to the home featuring a flat roofline with cantilever-geometric effects in natural hues. Indoor architectural features include a circular stairway made of stainless steel and walnut steps at the entrance to the great room with the fireplace wall extending upward towards the master suite level, modern beam ceiling, and full height sliding-stacking doors throughout. Poured terrazzo floors flow throughout the dining, kitchen, and great room with ambient lighting showcasing a blend of styles in furniture, eclectic art, and fixtures. Modern and vintage Regency styles carry throughout the home, making it truly one of a kind. The contemporary white kitchen with Boffi fixtures and modern pendant lighting includes an island and ample counter space equipped with a Gaggenau grill, Sub Zero and Miele appliances for the perfect culinary experience.
The living quarters include a master suite on the upper level with private deck, exterior stairs to the pool and adjacent Yoga and Meditation room. The master retreat with hardwood floors boasts an intimate fireplace and a spa-quality master bathroom that includes duo rain shower heads and a free standing Boffi tub. The two additional bedrooms on the lower level include stylish guest rooms amenities also with outdoor access to the pool deck. A fully self-contained casita features a private entrance poolside with a private patio for the fourth bedroom option including a Boffi kitchenette.
Enjoy the desert lifestyle while taking in the breathtaking views of the adjacent bolder field and mountains from the outdoor living room featuring a Viking BBQ and range and Sub-Zero appliances perfect for dining alfresco or relaxing. Also enjoy the refreshing saltwater pool and tanning shelf, desert Zen garden, or rejuvenate in the elevated spa. This lifestyle home integrates modern architecture and mid-century influences with warmth and accessible living for today.
