About Tom Ellicott
My partner and I live in Atlanta but have always loved the Palm Springs lifestyle. In season or out of season, the Mountains and the Desert call us. It was a dream to find this home.
Tom Ellicott purchased this house in 2014
Why Tom Ellicott chose Palm Springs
We just had to have 'Spanish'. It's what speaks to us. We love mid-century and we love modern, but 'Spanish Colonial' architecture and elegant gardens say 'home' to us in Palm Springs. Plus, the property is like a mini-estate: Gated, screened by walls and hedges... totally private. We loved it from 'go'.
What makes this house unique
The privacy, the location, the architecture, and the hot tub are without a doubt the best reasons to stay at Casa de Palma.
