Something tremendously novel and exciting has descended upon the picturesque Palm Springs landscape. Nestled inconspicuously along the San Jacinto Mountains, rests an apex luxury destination. Welcome to Colony 29.
Set on almost 7 acres at the very birthplace of Palm Springs, Colony 29 is a true village. Six separate & distinctive homes originally built from 1929 to 1937
have been masterfully restored and modernized with the loving hand of a craftsman.
McLean Company Rentals recent inaugural launch of this sprawling Spanish Villa (as a vacation rental, special events venue and destination experience), has opened a hidden, historic wellspring of creative inspiration to the public.
From a private, paved road, you enter Colony 29 through ornate gates and the road meanders up the magnificent hillside. You will immediately note the picturesque setting reminiscent of a hillside European village.
The grounds of Colony 29 abound with rock walkways and weave throughout the mountainside estate on almost 7 acres.
At each turn, a new surprise unfolds; a swimming pool, a meditation garden, an outdoor cast iron bathtub and massage area, a tree house or outdoor kitchen. Bridges are positioned over dry streams. Covered patios are brought to life with ornate vines.
There are also outdoor fireplaces, spas and an endless sampling of the most beautiful specimens of California-native plant scape to be found anywhere.
A labyrinth of stone pathways crawls up and across the mountainside, each turn revealing an unexpected view; gardens of cacti and agave; citrus, guava, mango, and banana trees; outdoor tubs and fireplaces; a barbecue and fire pit terrace; a grotto lined with grape vines; and intimate alcoves perfect for reading, meditating, or just enjoying the view.
An adult sized, palapa tree house is large enough to host a small party and high enough to provide views across the city to the mountains beyond.
Above it all sits the two story main house, built in the mid-1920s by artist John Burnham, the son of Chicago based architect Daniel Burnham.
Enter the main house through a front courtyard, with fireplace and garden, into a great room with massive beamed ceilings, a natural rock fireplace, slate floors, Malibu & Catalina decorate tiles and famous glass walls that overlook the city of Palm Springs. Mountain and city views will immediately astound you. There are a total of 5 bedrooms, 4 baths, 4 fireplaces, two patios, built in outdoor bar and barbecue and saltwater pool and spa.
The main house features two master suites, upstairs and down. There are two additional guest bedrooms upstairs and an additional guest bedroom downstairs, with custom built twin bunk beds, perfect for kids or adventurous adults. Both downstairs bedrooms have direct access to the pool and spa.
Included in the rental of the main house is exclusive use of the saltwater pool & spa, Zeus grotto, Palapa Tree House and two outdoor barbecues and dining areas.
Beds: 3-Cal Kings, Queen & Twins Bunk Beds
