One-of-a-kind luxury home with private pool & spa, WiFi, AC & on-site ruins

Originally designed by local architect, Thomas Jakway in 2007, this truly remarkable, one-of-a-kind home welcomes you and your guests to the historic and eclectic South Palm Springs neighborhood known as the Mesa. Inside this 3,500-square-foot, two-story, luxury home, you'll find a number of high-end fixtures, amenities, and decor, all chosen with artistic attention to detail. The large, open kitchen is equipped with stainless steel appliances, custom walnut cabinets, and Caesarstone countertops with easy access to a cooking terrace with a built-in barbecue grill and a view of the backyard and pool deck. The sunlit great room joins the kitchen and dining area with the living room complete with Fleetwood multi-stacking glass doors that vanish into the wall, erasing the line between indoors and out, and taking you out to a living/dining terrace with stunning mountain views.

For sleeping options, there are three phenomenal bedrooms here, all with en suite baths and separate climate controls, spread out over both levels of this home and accessible via a spectacular glass staircase or a personal elevator. The impressive main suite, located on the upper level, includes a dual-sided gas fireplace, a stone soaking tub, front and rear facing windows, and a walk-in closet.

Outside, the uniqueness of this property continues with an astounding oasis backyard nestled up against the hillside, featuring a saltwater pool and spa, a wet bar, gas firepit, numerous seating areas, and your very own ruins! That's right, neighborhood folklore suggests that the ruins were part of a never-completed project to build a casino on an adjacent lot in the 1920s, but now you can dine or socialize within the ancient walls that have been expertly integrated into the landscape.


The surrounding Mesa neighborhood is more than just a historic celebrity enclave once home to famous actors, authors, and songwriters, it is also conveniently located between downtown and South Palm Springs for easy access to restaurants, golf courses, and hiking and biking trails. From this home, you can walk to several popular destinations including the legendary Ace Hotel, the Moorten Botanical Garden (founded in 1938 by the desert's first horticulturist), Mr. Lyons, and so much more. This property is also just 23 miles from the Empire Polo Club, home of the annual Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and Stagecoach Festival.

We booked it for family gathering and it was great. Large gathering areas and lovely pool and private bedrooms. The house is gorgeous.

We really love this home. Perched at the top of a hill, there are breathtaking views of the valley from large floor to ceiling windows. The front facing terrace is a fabulous place to relax and enjoy the fresh air, views and sun. The house is well appointed and comfortable. We love the historic neighborhood as it allows for fantastic walks and architectural sightseeing.
I might give the property 4.5 stars if I could, simply because parts of the house are beginning to show their wear. For instance, the bed in the master bedroom could use replacing and the kitchen cabinets look like they need refinishing.
The rental price for this property is high so I am not sure we would splurge on it regularly, but we will be thrilled to return some day.
