This fabulous Mid-Century designed by the famed architect William Krisel, has achieved historic status with the City of Rancho Mirage and for good reason. Surrounded by incredible mountain views and situated in a date palm grove, this enclave of 17 homes in the heart of a quiet Tamarisk neighborhood is a mid-century oasis. Each home sits on a third of an acre and shares an Olympic size pool and spa located in the middle of the development. The home was originally owned by Alex Gottleib, a famous Hollywood producer and screenwriter known for producing the Abbott and Costello films as well as television shows such as The Smothers Brothers and The Donna Reed Show. His famous neighbors in the complex included Groucho Marx and Barbara Sinatra, who held on to her home for a number of years after marrying Frank.
The house, with its classic butterfly design, features walls of glass and soaring beamed ceilings. The entire property has been lovingly restored and decorated with high-end furnishings. The living room offers stunning views through sliding glass doors and clerestory windows, a large stone fireplace, polished stone flooring and a gorgeous baby grand piano that just begs for attention.
The kitchen is a modern delight, boasting stone countertops, stainless steel appliances, including a wine cooler, and all the little extras to keep the chef in the group happy. Adjoining the kitchen is a simple, yet elegant dining area with seating for six overlooking one of several patios.
There are two master suites and a convertible den with a queen size pullout. It doubles as an office and media room with its large flat screen television. One master suite has a king size bed, flat screen TV, love seat and dressing area with lots of closet space. The en suite bath features a large vanity with a stone countertop, oversized sink and a glass-enclosed shower with a large rain shower-head and a hand-held version.
The second suite offers a queen size bed, flat screen TV, and ample closet space. The second bath is beautifully designed with a large glassed in shower flooded with natural light.
The property showcases the wonderful views with several patios and seating areas for dining and lounging. The heated pool and spa are just steps from the property’s edge.
The home also features a two-car detached garage with storage space and washer/dryer.
And did we mention location? The Tamarisk Country Club is within walking distance and The River, featuring dining, shopping and entertainment is just a short drive, as is the Rancho Las Palmas Resort with its famous spa and restaurants. This home is the ideal getaway for your next stay in the desert!
