Villa Sierra- “That Pink Door”
An iconic mid-century desert ranch on a double lot in the Indian Canyons neighborhood, Villa Sierra is a sprawling property with expansive public rooms of grand proportions and floor-to-ceiling windows that blur the boundary of inside and outside. The manicured grounds, towering palm trees, and captivating mountain views permeate the brilliantly designed open living space of this 5,300 square-foot home.
Its 75-foot swimming pool with coupled spa and Bisazza in-laid tanning shelf, outdoor shower, and art deco cabana for up to 10 people to mingle in its shade, will make you never want to leave the “compound”. Mix a cocktail in one of two outdoor bar and grill nooks, laze in a chaise, or enjoy an al fresco meal at the voguish patio dining table. A lush, green ficus wall surrounding the manicured grounds ensures total privacy. When night falls on the valley there is an outdoor fire to enjoy the silhouetted mountain views.
Styled in a chic, holiday regency scheme the home excites the imagination with its globally inspired collection of art and richly colored decor and finishings, including a Byzantine blue leather sofa, a canary yellow glass-top bistro table and pistachio green cabinetry in the gourmet kitchen.
A billiard room features a powder-blue pool table set against a baroque stained-glass window and the adjacent wet bar with a backdrop of Bisazza mosaic tiling offers plenty of room to mix a drink in between turns. A separate lounge area features an elevated, built in chaise-style lounge sofa, limited edition Claritone stereo like the one Sonny and Cher had in their Palm Springs home, and a pair of armchairs surrounding a marble fireplace with striking sculptures and grass-paper lined walls.
A minimalist dining room, brightened by pink dining chairs, seats 8 around a unique glass-top and tree-trunk table. The gourmet kitchen with a Sub-Zero refrigerator and Viking stove seats 4 in mid-century saucer chairs around a breakfast table. Every bathroom is a work of art, with granite countertops, mosaic tiling, and exotic sculpture.
Between four suites, each featuring a king or queen bed with Frette linens, Villa Sierra comfortably sleeps 8 guests. The master bedroom with its chocolate brown grass walls and sitting area with flat-screen TV and pair of white slipper chairs, matching love seat and Moroccan coffee table, boasts a luxurious mirror-surrounded en-suite bath and powder room. The second and third bedrooms, styled in elegant décor—chandeliers and silken bedding in one and ornate regency headboard and lime-green accent chair in the other–feature queen beds, en-suite baths and private patios with swinging chairs. The fourth bedroom is bright and cheery with its yellow, tropical bird themed wall coverings and its queen bed is framed by a Tiffany-blue upholstered headboard. A shared bathroom lies just outside in the hallway. All bedrooms have access to the inviting outdoors through glass sliding doors
