3 bedroom, 3 bath new home with unique desert landscaping on 5 acres is surrounded by mostly undeveloped land. Enjoy walks on Turquoise Ridge on an informal trail that runs the ridge top, south to Rattlesnake Hill and onto Lookout Hill. Fantastic views in all directions include Joshua Tree National Park, Mount San Jacinto, and Mount San Gorgonio, and the towns of Joshua Tree and Yucca Valley. If you are intrigued by the many paintings displayed in the house, you can arrange with the artist owner to see his neighboring art studio/gallery.
Artist and educator Spelman Evans Downer has lived in Joshua Tree for 14 years. Property is next door to artist's home and studio.
Spelman Downer purchased this house in 2011
This large spacious house provides a private retreat with 360 degree views, close to Joshua Tree National Park and the village of Joshua Tree, hiking trails onsite, surrounded by mostly undeveloped park like land.
Views, privacy, new construction, spacious large home for family and friends, garage, onsite hiking trails, owner has guided and taught photography workshops in the park and can recommend places to visit. Local music and art scene.
We loved our stay! Morning coffee on the deck enjoying the 360 degree views from the ridge was a fabulous way to start the day . The house was spacious and very well equipped. We loved all the art on display, just sorry not to fit in a visit to the owner's studio. The house is conveniently located to access Yucca Valley, Joshua Tree and Pioneer Town but also away from it all.
Perfect place to get together with family. Beautiful landscaping. Our only feedback was that the internet was slow and we couldn't watch the Final Four!
We really enjoyed Spelman's home. The open layout made for an awesome community space. The extra bed in the master closet worked out really well since we were 6 adults (and only 2 of whom were a couple). So that made for 5 beds in the home which worked out perfectly. And each bedroom had direct access to a bathroom. Great location... within a few minutes of Joshua Tree National Park. And we had a unique experience (sound bath) in Landers at the Integretron.
Beatiful sunsets and sunrises. Comfortable beds. Clean. Well appointed.
Easy drive to Joshua tree national park.
Kitchen was huge and had plenty of supplies.
Extra blankets for stargazing.
Washer and dryer.
Highly recommend Turquoise Ridge.
This house and the surrounding views were just fantastic! We spent Christmas here with our 3 adult sons and their families. We had a wonderful time preparing meals together in the spacious kitchen and enjoying the large open space. Really perfect for a large group! The pictures on the website are nice but the space is much larger than I thought it would be. The furnishings and pictures were lovely and the beds were very comfortable. I couldn't have hoped for a nicer spot to come back to after exploring and hiking in Joshua Tree! Everyone loved it!
Short drive to the village of Joshua Tree and the West Entrance of Joshua Tree National Park.
