Located in La Quinta, Ca. at the exclusive golf club, the Hideaway, this elegant home appears as an oasis in the desert. Situated on a small hilltop, the home’s white plaster walls with its capped domes rise out of the desert floor in a breath-taking contrast to the golf course and framed from behind by the Santa Rosa Mountains. This stunning Spanish Revival is influenced by Moorish Architecture.
The domes are layered with Spanish deco tiles. In addition, columns and arched window surrounds are made with hand crafted Cantera Stone, also exterior architectural components elegantly designed using wood contrast against the white plaster walls creating an image of a small village. The massive arches on the first level frame internal views of the desert. A second level deck is carefully positioned to maximize viewing of golf play from tee to green, seldom available to golf course living. The rear yard design completes with two terrace areas for casual sunbathing, is designed with travertine pavers framed by grass insets. The pool’s light hue color of blue enhances the relationship between home to landscape and the positioned darker blue tiled platforms with custom made lanterns further articulate the Moorish style.
Upon entering the home, the visual drama continues with the progression of architectural events passing from the entry foyer into the dining area, which is surrounded by water, further emphasizing the effect of an oasis. This interior space is laced in old world brick and wood details and an elegant chandelier and light sconces. The space also includes two wine displays and access to a charming interior courtyard. This courtyard is positioned as the central core of the home. The court is designed with a cozy seating around a beautiful, crafted fireplace. The intimate courtyard also includes stairs leading to a upstairs guest casita. The court is also seamlessly connected to a covered outdoor living space, complete with an additional fireplace, tv screen, outdoor dining, and casual seating.
