Escape to a kinder, gentler time at Tamarisk Ranchos, a park-like enclave of 16 luxurious mid-century homes designed by architect William Krisel in 1958. Original owners were Groucho Marx and other Hollywood VIPs who helped found nearby Tamarisk Country Club. Connected by meandering paths, the architecturally honored homes are situated around a 40X25 foot heated pool and spa and surrounded by towering date palm and citrus trees. Location in Rancho Mirage is ideal, a short walk from Tamarisk Country Club, a golf cart drive away from Mission Hills and other golf Mecca's and near The River shopping complex. Palm Springs to the north and Palm Desert to the south are short drives away.
This spacious home, originally owned by a member of the Marx family, has been impeccably maintained and features butterfly roofs, walls of glass, post and beam ceilings, clerestory windows, open floor plan. The entertainer's living room and an adjacent family room/den with wet bar offer dramatic mountain views and sliding doors lead to patios. A cozy enclosed patio next to kitchen also looks out to mountains, a gurgling fountain and private yard. The master suite, also with mountain views, has king-sized bed and TV system. Second bedroom has queen-sized bed and adjoining bathroom. The den with TV system, has a sectional sofa or pull-out bed. There's a dining room, two-car garage, utility room and large storage room.
