Description

Exceptional opportunity to own and enjoy a special piece of Hollywood history located within blocks of Downtown Palm Springs! Formerly owned and enjoyed by Edith Head, an American costume designer who won a record eight Academy Awards for Best Costume Design, this iconic 1957 Spanish-style villa checks all the boxes: premier location near the end of a dead-end street; architecturally-intriguing elements including exposed tongue and groove ceilings, exposed brick walls and polished paver flooring; and private outdoor areas that are infused with mature landscaping, flavorful citrus, and magical views of Mt. San Jacinto. This property is also within a block of Ruth Hardy Park, a 22-acre park featuring tennis, basketball & sand volleyball courts as well as picnic tables & grills! Step inside this special home and you will immediately feel the magic and admire the wood ceilings, floor to ceiling glass, polished pavers, and two sets of doors to create true indoor/outdoor experiences: one set that opens to the west-facing saline pool and spa and the second set that opens to the east-facing covered patio and tranquility garden. Separate kitchen, accented with custom cabinetry, stone counters, and stainless-steel Bosch and Wolf appliances, opens to the dining area and out to the backyard. South-facing Primary Ensuite has tongue and groove ceiling with exposed beams, decorative fireplace, built-in bookcases, doors that open to a private patio, walk-in closet, and a beautifully styled private bath that includes a picture frame window looking out to the yard, custom cabinetry and tile, and an eye-catching walk-in shower with skylight. On the other side of the house is the west-facing Junior Ensuite Two that also includes a tongue and groove ceiling with exposed beams as well as mountain views, doors that open to the pool and spa, and a private bath with mid-century tile accents, a walk-in shower and a door that opens to the outside. Mid-way through the house is west-facing Bedroom Three which offers mountain views and easy access to the hallway bath that includes a skylight, shower/tub combination, and laundry area. Elastomeric roof to reflect UV rays, three HVAC systems with whole house air filtration system, whole house water filtration system, newly installed irrigation system, and so much more! While soaking in this property, be sure to try the lime, lemon, tangelo and/or Valencia orange trees! Absolutely delicious!
