The Mesa


Built in 1976, this Bauhaus inspired contemporary home in South Palm Springs epitomizes the resort lifestyle and is an entertainers dream. Situated perfectly near the top of El Portal in The Mesa neighborhood, the house sits at the base of the San Jacinto mountains and showcases unobstructed mountain views and desert terrain. Upon entering, through the motorized drive or pedestrian gate, the elegantly designed cactus garden and meditation area with fountain create a sense of calm and tranquility. A breezeway connects the two wings of the home, escorting the guest to the main entrance and inviting backyard. Through the pivot door and down two steps to the vaulted two-story grand living room, three horizontal picture windows capture views of the mountain and sky. The living room is a large conversational pit, with a fireplace and six pivoting glass doors that open to the outside resort pool and spa. The family style kitchen and dining area are adjacent to a side yard and eating venue with built in BBQ grill area against the mountain. Up the floating staircase reveals the wood floor features and four bedrooms. The primary suite loft is generously sized with plenty of room for a sitting area. Windows accentuate the mountain terrain and pool area to the East. The primary bath area has a large walk-in closet, double sinks, “egg” soaking tub with separate shower. The home features an additional guest suite with private bath and two other guest rooms that share the “Jack and Jill” bath. Step outside through Fleetwood sliders to the stargazing deck and views of the pool and mountain. The pool and spa area feature a firepit and lots of room for outdoor dining and lounging; from the pool area, the clean contemporary home against the mountain backdrop creates a spectacular image. This property has a rental history which may be of importance to some Palm Springs buyers.
