Pining for Palm Springs: Perfection and the Perfect West Coast Vacation Home

My Dearest Husband: I am leaving you for a house!

This home, 1175 Los Robles Dr, Palm Springs, CA, has done me some serious harm. Like any relationship, you never know when it’s going to just hit you — whomp! And this home has got to me. I was writing it up for Ebby’s Grand Vie magazine and I just fell in love. Like, I might be leaving my house for this new, zesty stud. Built in 1979, the 3054 square foot home is virtually new and rebuilt from the ground up, in a classic, contemporary design with an open floor plan with captivating mountain views. I mean glorious views from every room! Talk about plastic surgery, this home has practically had vaginal rejuvenation: new stucco, roof, plumbing, electrical, windows, fixtures, irrigated landscaping, new walkways and driveway, custom stainless steel garage door, soaring ceilings, two stainless steel fireplaces, custom carpets, commercial style windows and oversized custom kitchen with Sub-Zero, Wolfe, dual dishwashers, wine captain, custom cabinetry and counters. It WAS re-built. Every one of the three and a half baths is hotel quality, and go splish-splash in a new resort style spa and pool. The home is on one-quarter of an acre on a private, gated street with only 11 other homes. Easy I-10 access and Palm Springs International Airport access. Perfect for locking her up, turning off the A/C, and saying adios until the next tumultuous meeting. It’s Palm Springs; I was there as a kid in the 1960′s and loved it; I will have trouble staying way. $1,299,000 P.S. Buy this for me, I will even cook!
