This unique and sophisticated property is located in the upscale tamarisk area of Rancho Mirage. The home is a luxury retreat with walls of glass oriented around a beautiful private pool and spa with views of the mountains.
From the moment you enter, you will know that you have found a home of quality, architectural design, casual desert comfort and tranquility with a modern Asian influence. This spacious 3 bedroom/3 bathroom home has everything to offer its discerning guests from serenity to indoor and outdoor entertaining. The residence was custom designed with a modern Zen/south Asian inspiration by a renowned San Francisco Architectural Designer. The recent renovation includes all new custom furnishings, antiques, art and sculpture pieces found throughout the owner's travels.
The living room and entertaining areas featuring 10 ft. ceilings and travertine floors were designed as a ''great room'' with oversized sliding doors opening
to the pool/spa, lush gardens and mountain views. Within the Great Room, you will find custom sectional sofas, a self igniting gas fireplace, TV and media center that is wired for sound throughout all the main rooms, custom art work and designer furnishings. This room also includes a large dining space with a 6 ft. round ebony wood table that can comfortably seat eight.
The custom designed gourmet kitchen has a blend of cherry wood and stainless steel cabinetry and counters of honed Absolute Black Granite. This material is also carried though the rest of the residence. The center island includes a breakfast bar, vegetable sink and a 56 bottle wine refrigerator. Additionally the kitchen includes plenty of cabinetry storage, working areas, a Miele dishwasher, Wolf range and GE Monogram refrigerator. It is fully equipped and stocked allowing for preparation of a casual meal to a full gourmet dinner. Off the kitchen is a laundry room with sink and large capacity Bosch washer/dryer.
The luxurious master suite contains a king size bed, a wide screen LCD TV, DVD, beautiful art, a desk, reading chair, walk in closet with organizers, sliding doors to the garden and pool and a gorgeous travertine bathroom including a rain shower, a deep soaking tub for two, custom cabinetry, slab granite counters, double sinks and sliding doors to the garden.

My name is Gary Jerabeck and my primary residence is in SF, CA. I am president of an architectural design corporation specializing in upscale residential projects in the San Francisco bay area, CA. I designed and fully renovated the home several years ago. I fully appreciate and understand what it takes to meet the demands of discerning clients and guests. I am well traveled throughout most of the world and have stayed at some of the highest 5 star international hotels. My goal was to bring the level of quality and flavor of some of these international resort properties to my desert home for both myself and my guest's enjoyment. My recent travels have focused on Asia, thus the inspiration for the home.
I have done over $150,000,000 worth of work on a variety of styles of homes offering unique character, a sense of place, understated elegance and a blend of modern and traditional style. I believe that my Rancho Mirage property emulates many of these traits. The home was to be special and offer a calming feeling upon entering the compound.
I chose Rancho Mirage for my vacation home due to its elegant, sophisticated setting and life style along with its central location. The community is impecably maintained and beautifully landscaped. The focus of the home was to create a private retreat where I could escape the pressure of professional life and recharge myself. It was to be a place of sharing with family and friends. I believe that the home and location have met my criteria. You will have no disappointments with this property.
