Located in south Palm Springs with glorious mountain views, this home features soaring high ceilings, and vanishing walls of glass with a distinctly modern allure. The sliding pocket-windows open to epansive covered terrace. Entertaining is made easy - guests gracefully progress from a warm welcome in the glass entry, to cocktails either indoors/outdoors, to cozy fireside chats at niches of seating in the separate living and family rooms or poolside on the sofa with a fireplace to find sublime views of the shaded canyons beyond.
An inverted roof over the great room and kitchen is augmented by large expanses of retractable, disappearing sliding doors, making the most of the stunning mountain views. The design of this home won the prestigious 2006 "Gold Nugget Award" for architecture as the "Best Home".

They'll retire in comfort to the guest wing strategically located on the other side of the home. Take a mega steam sauna/shower in the 75 square foot, glass-walled sauna room. Turn on the fireplace and view the mountain views. Wake up to the same spectacular views! One of the most innovative homes available in Palm Springs, California and the entire USA.

I stayed at this lovely home for a long weekend at the end of February, celebrating my birthday with some of my friends. The long and short of it is that this home is impeccable — asthetically, the photos are dead on. For cooks and small groups, it is the perfect vacation destination.
The back wall of this home is a series of pocket doors that open entirely to the back pool area, exposing the kitchen and living room to the open air and creating a seamless transition from the indoors to the outdoors. The decor and taste level is amazing — plenty of mid-century, beautiful furnishings to lounge on during your stay. The layout of this home is also perfect for a group of 8-10 — it is spread out enough that everyone has some privacy, but also has a big enough community space that we could all enjoy our time together. I loved it.
We had a couple of hiccups over the course of our stay, and Christopher was incredibly available and went to great lengths to make sure we were comfortable and happy. He provided additional equipment in the kitchen to ensure the cooks in our group were satisfied, and also met with me individually to ensure that any concerns about the rental agreement were clear.
I'd recommend this property, and working with Christopher, to anyone interested in a similar vacation to Palm Springs. My birthday was incredible, and I'd definitely stay at this house again.
Beautiful home and fantastic compound for the family. Amazing hiking next door at Indian Canyon Park - hiking along the palm trees and desert springs. Wonderfully responsive host. thanks!
The house was wonderful. Exactly as it is shown in the photos, very spacious and the master suite was perfect. HUGE shower the size of a small room. The pool and hot tub were the perfect temperature. We were stuck in major traffic and arrived later than anticipated but our host, Ed, was great in keeping in touch. He made sure he was there to greet us and show us how everything worked. The place is expensive though. We only wanted to rent the house for the weekend, 4 days total but minimum stay was a week so we ended up throwing money away on an empty house. That was the only negative about the place. Expensive but worth it.
