Perks for the Parents

This mid-century condo in Palm Desert, California has exhilarating 11-foot ceilings and spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and desert. It sleeps 6. As part of a stunning architect-built complex, this generously-sized 1850 sqft semi-private home has a shared swimming pool and beautiful landscaped grounds, as well as its own private courtyard. Parents with an eye for design will love the Californian style of the house which fits perfectly with the laid-back desert surroundings. Spend your days hiking in the hills or lounging around the pool - this is the perfect place to get away from it all.

Why Kids Love it

This home offers the space of a private house, together with some hotel-style facilities for the family. Kids will love splashing in the shared heated pool, and there is a pool-side shuffle board and putting green within the complex. It’s less than 10 minutes’ drive to The Living Desert Zoo & Gardens where they can learn about ecosystems, conservation and exotic animals. Older kids and teens can hire bikes from El Paseo, and kids of all ages will love Civic Center Park (7 minutes' drive), which has the Palm Desert Aquatic Center, an amphitheater, sports fields, tennis and pickleball courts, picnic areas and more.

Style Notes

Mid-century condo. This historic community is one of the finest mid-century modern sites in the Coachella Valley. Designed by world-renowned architect William Krisel and built in phases between 1958 and 1969, this recently renovated property retains a true Californian style, with classic cacti plants, bright colors and warm wooden textures. Floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors create stunning views of the spectacular scenery, while the polished floors look sleek and stylish. We love the retro artwork on the walls, the luxuriously large double sinks and the warm blue exterior tiles.

I have a love of homes, so I have purchased several over the years to renovate and offer for rent or for sale. Living in the NE from California has given me the op to experience beautiful surrounding such as Woodstock and the rest of the Catskills which is where I live. I offer my skills of interior design and renovations as my business as well.

Palm Desert, Palm Springs

Just a short drive from it’s famous neighbor Palm Springs, this is the retail and cultural center of the Coachella Valley.

Mountain landscapes and striking desert views create the perfect backdrop for challenging hikes, but there’s plenty of retail therapy on offer at the designer boutiques of El Paseo.

Play a round at one of the many world-class golf courses, check out the luxury country clubs, or visit the Living Desert Wildlife and Ecology Museum for a great family day out.
