Indoor Space:

This grand home offers the perfect escape for a large family or group that wants modern conveniences and a grand resort environment. The indoor spaces offer 12-foot ceilings, abundant light, exquisite stonework, an indoor fountain, gas fireplace, and an open welcoming living space with ample seating for lounging and dining.

Whether you want to sip wine by the gas fireplace, prepare a gourmet feast in your fully equipped kitchen, or play pool in the game room, you will find lots of space to relax or entertain guests throughout the house. When you open the massive sliding glass doors, the indoor space joins with a large covered sitting area next to your pool and patio area. 

Outdoor Space:

The front entrance features a tall stone basin fountain, towering palm trees, and an outdoor firepit that leads to a garden of citrus trees and grape vines enclosed by 10-foot hedges. The backyard patio opens onto your private pool, spa and fountain with plenty of lounge chairs. There are also separate countertops for poolside bartending and cooking with a top-end gas BBQ grill.

You can spend the day soaking up the sun in your lounge chairs with a cool fresh-squeezed lemonade, float the afternoon away in your pool, admire the sunset view over the fantastic San Jacinto mountain ridge, or watch for shooting stars in the night sky from the circular firepit or overlooking your own vineyard. Whether you want to sit with others and be social, or just relax on your own and not be disturbed, this estate has the space for you.

Even though you are in the desert, you will hear the soothing sound of water throughout the house, from the indoor fountain in the entry, or the cascading fountain by the front gate, or the flowing waterfall into the pool. It is truly an oasis in the desert.

At night the landscape lighting accents the majestic palm trees, stone fountain, and privacy hedge.

This private villa is part of the prestigious Movie Colony neighborhood where the glamorous Hollywood stars come to play. The property has a prime location two blocks from the Uptown Design District, and less than a 5 minute walk to downtown restaurants. It is easily walkable to the entire downtown strip of upscale restaurants, vibrant bars and shops. Even though Movie Colony is close to the heart of town, the property remains quiet and private, shielded from the busy traffic of large hotels and B&Bs.

The historic Movie Colony is named after the many famous movie stars who owned homes in the area from the 1930's to 1960's, including Marilyn Monroe, Cary Grant, Dinah Shore, Frank Sinatra, and Al Jolson. This property is rumored to be the former estate of cosmetics giant and icon Estee Lauder. The house next door was owned by Jack Benny.

The estate is also only a 7-minute walk to the famous 22-acre Ruth Hardy Park, where you will find 8 tennis courts, 2 children's play areas, basketball court, 2 volleyball courts, numerous picnic tables with BBQs, and large open fields. The adjacent Wellness Park is a 5-acre wellness oasis that offers a quarter-mile walking/jogging loop, five outdoor fitness stations, and four gardens: meditation, healing, fragrance and a memorial garden. Also, there are popular public hiking trails a short walk or bike ride away that offer splendid views overlooking the city, the airport, and valley.
