Splendid desert contemporary in coveted Andreas Hills is blessed with some of the region's most coveted views. The entrance creates an unforgettable impression as visitors pass over a glass bridge into a courtyard framed by splashing fountains. Elsewhere, the 'quiet factor' cannot be overstated, at most, birds and palms swaying are about as loud as it gets. Silence is partially what called many of us to the desert in the first place. Soaring ceilings and massive pocket doors disappear and bring the outdoors in. Wet bar is a nod to kicky old Palm Springs. Clerestory windows surround. Kitchen is a design wonder with curves and fantastic sense of self. The finest granite is another theme throughout. Fabulous use of glass block from this exciting period in contemporary architecture and design is a treat. The dining room now used as a den overlooks the courtyard. Ensuite master bedroom enjoys yet more tall ceilings. Private patio is steps away. Two more ensuite bedrooms are situated on the opposite end of the home. Both enjoy their own patios. This is truly a 'feel good' space as privacy abounds out back and those San Jacinto views can't be beat. And maybe one day there will even be an Esther Williams moment by way of the sensational poolside fountain. Outdoor shower, barbecue meets pergola area, and circular fire pit all play nicely together.
