Located in the desert area of Palm Springs, this desert luxury estate by our Newport Beach architect company; takes its roots from mid-century modern architecture which embodied the Era of “the Celebrity lifestyle in the desert”, this era was made famous by such stars as Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and the Rat Pack. This era of Palm Springs occurred during the 50s and 60s with the development of a major transportation corridor to the Coachella Valley, along with the beginning of the creation of golf course communities in Newport Beach, Palm Springs and the surrounding area.
It became a weekend getaway for the rich and famous. This lifestyle is still part of the desert valley today and now includes the towns of Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, Indian Wells and La Quinta. The Coachella valley is a mecca for world class golf courses.
The home is located behind the private gates of the exclusive golf club of the Madison Club. The community is located in La Quinta, and is a seasonal destination for the Chang family. The area is famous for world events including the Coachella Music Festival, Stagecoach concert event, PGA golf tournament and BNP Paribas Tennis Open.
The home's views are further enhanced by a series of spacious glass doors, some extending to 50 feet in length. This allows the interior of the home to capture the tranquil setting of the desert landscape. Upon approaching the property, the architectural forms convey the depth of this mid-century home's attractiveness. The home's exterior material is embodied by the warmth of the rich exterior white plaster, highlighted by harmonizing masses of stacked ledge stone and soft wood details.
