Built in the 40s in that iconic Beverly Hills ranch style, this half-acre private estate in uptown Palm Springs has been sympathetically restored to its former glory, with some much-needed modern touches added for good measure. Your host has even gone as far as to have custom furnishings fabricated to compliment the original architecture – no off-the-peg solutions for this mid-century beauty. But before we dig into the details, let's address the headline act – that view! Look out over a planted perimeter of split palms, olive trees, and desert succulents (for utmost privacy) to be greeted by stunning mountain views dominated by the almost 11,000ft of Mount San Jacinto. If you'd like to experience the view from the other side, you're a ten-minute drive from Palm Springs aerial tramway, which will have you part-way to the peak in no time. Back at home, you're spoiled for choice when it comes to seating. Indoors or alfresco, upright or flat-out, business formal or slouchy casual? There's an almost infinite combination of seating styles and areas to relax with a book/movie/podcast. Three of the five bedrooms boast direct access to the soothing spa patio, and all of them are blessed with luxurious linens and full en-suite bathrooms. In addition, a perfectly maintained pool offers much-needed respite from the desert heat over the summer months. At the same time, the stunning kitchen is equipped with everything you could need except an actual chef, though your host is happy to arrange one for you. If you fancy heading out for dinner, you're spoiled for choice when it comes to restaurants within walking distance or a short drive. Favourites include Eight4Nine for refined New American cuisine in sleek surroundings, a ten-minute walk from home, and chic farm-to-fork Provençal plates at Farm, under a five-minute drive away.
