This magnificent architectural treasure in the renowned historic Movie Colony neighborhood has multiple upgrades and enhancements. The copper-colored steel roof, considered a “Modified Butterfly” design, rises dramatically to the rear of the great room, reaching out to the stunning panorama of the western mountains. The artful placement of iridescent Raja slate on the facade and interior provide dramatic accents, decorative continuity, and a natural aesthetic. The lighting changes the colors of the stone throughout the day and into the evening. The stepping stone entrance among the desert scaping is highlighted and cooled by the relaxing sound of a refreshing natural stone fountain. The designer kitchen features a full-sized and two double stacking drawer dishwashers, a butler’s pantry, a GE Monogram gas stove, and a booster water heater at the kitchen sink. The Italian concrete island and counter, infused with glass, compliment the porcelain tile floors and warm, wooden cathedral ceilings. The game room has a wet bar. Large and luxurious, the primary suite has a breakfast and coffee bar, abundant closets, and a spacious bath featuring a bidet, urinal, and a free-standing copper soaker tub that fills from the ceiling above; the primary shower has four water fixtures, two from the ceiling and two on each sidewall. The additional two en suite guest quarters accessed through the gallery provide privacy and separation. The great room includes a prominent glass-enclosed gas fireplace that also opens to the patio fireplace for gracious outdoor entertaining. The saltwater pool is infinity-edged and centrally located, providing easy access from each home area inside the courtyard. The side yards have a variety of mature fruit trees–fig, blood orange, naval, tangelo, grapefruit, and Meyer lemon. Upgrades include four separately zoned A/C units, four tankless water heaters, a garage with custom cabinetry, a Tesla charging station, and a Bosch Power Max car charger. The wholly-owned, 64-panel Sunpower Solar system, still under the 25-year warranty, provides ample solar-generated electricity covering up to 90% of the monthly electricity costs (usually under $200/mo.) Designed by architect Reuben Walters (http://www.reubenwalters.com/residential.html), who designed the Palm Springs Animal Shelter and The Randon House on San Lorenzo, among other projects. The original blueprints come with the property, as do some furnishings. His original client, who built the house, was from Arizona and wanted a home inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s Talisen West, infused with colors of the Southwest. Designed for low maintenance and low power costs, this elegant and spacious home is ideal for significant fundraising events, intimate dinner parties, or simply quiet, personal relaxation. Two rental companies’ vacation rental income estimates place it in the range of $165,000 to $200,000.
