This impeccable and outstandingly well designed condominium at Monterey Country Club was entirely renovated early in 2010, featuring floors of elegant porcelain tile throughout the home extending onto an oversized patio terrace, a sophisticated new gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances and contrasting maple butcher block counter surfaces, superb interior design exhibiting an artist’s palette of wall colors and stylish contemporary furnishings along with excellent paintings and lithographs on the walls. The ambience of the condo is upbeat, impressive and welcoming at the same time.
Monterey Country Club is a private gated community with guards on duty 24/7, patrolling 375 acres of homes and golf course greens in the heart of Palm Desert, centered in the Coachella Valley near Palm Springs. The landscaping is excellently maintained with beautiful seasonal planting of flowers and shrubs, mature trees and well-kept lawns. The grounds offer spectacular views of mountains, lakes and rolling greens providing 27 holes of golf on a championship course designed by Ted Robinson. There are 19 tennis courts, 36 swimming pools with jacuzzis, a fitness center, pro shop and driving range, with a recently remodeled clubhouse dining room, informal lounge and an outdoor breakfast, lunch and snack bar within a short walking distance of our home.
At over 2,000 square feet, this deluxe condo is one of the largest at Monterey Country Club; (see floor plan). A heated swimming pool with hot-tub jacuzzi is across the street and we have a two car garage currently housing an electric golf cart which can be made available to renters. The living room is large and spacious with a vaulted ceiling, plantation shutters, wood burning fireplace, wall mounted flat Samsung HDTV with sound system, DVD & VCR. Time Warner Cable supplies High Speed Wireless Internet service which can be accessed throughout the house. The windows and sliding glass doors in the living room look West over the Golf Club’s 8th green, and glorious afternoon sunshine streams in. These doors open onto an oversized patio terrace running the entire length of the condo and there is access to and from the kitchen as well as the living room. The terrace is paved with the same porcelain tiles as on all the floors in the house and there is a new stainless steel Barbeque with a full set of tools, shade umbrellas and two large round outdoor dining tables, each seating four to six people, along with comfortable garden furniture, recliners and side tables. The terrace is a perfect place for parties as well as for intimate dinners al fresco, enjoying the sunset, and during the days you can watch golfers going by the eighth hole while you bask in the panoramic view of beautiful mountains and greenery surrounding you from your wide terrace, looking West.
An elegant dining area between the living room and kitchen will seat eight people at an oval glass topped table. The contemporary kitchen has butcher block countertops and custom made cabinets with all major appliances in stainless steel, including a double-door SubZero refrigerator with through-the-door ice and water dispenser. The kitchen is completely equipped with a Blender, Toaster, Cuisinart food processor, Coffee Maker and other small appliances and is fully stocked with all the china, glassware, flatware, cookware, bake ware and cooking utensils you might need. A breakfast bar, also surfaced with the maple butcher block, bridges between the kitchen and living room. At home catering can be arranged with an excellent local chef. An atrium filled with greenery is adjacent to the cozy den with TV, VCR and computer modem. The den can be enjoyed as an office-library, has two comfortable couches plus a futon daybed which could accommodate extra guests. The second bedroom has a pair of twin beds, TV, bureau and large mirrored closet, with its own private wood paneled bathroom, his and her sinks, a tub-shower combination and a separate powder room which can be accessed by guests without entering the private bathroom area. The spacious master bedroom has a king size bed, TV, DVD player, two bureaus and a large mirrored closet, and is at the quiet East end of the house. It adjoins a large private wood-paneled master bath with a full length tub, separate shower enclosure, his and hers sinks and more mirrored clothes closets.

We bought this upscale condo 15 years ago and drove down from Los Angeles on weekends to play golf and soak up the resort atmosphere. We loved desert living so much we have now become permanent residents in nearby Rancho Mirage. We've totally renovated this condominium to be enjoyed by friends and family visitors and rented from time to time.
