One of the many outstanding features of this Palm Springs estate is the spectacular regulation-sized tennis court with an adjacent entertaining area and covered outdoor bar. This is one of the best tennis courts in all of Palm Springs - with stunning views of the mountains. Moreover, the tennis court was designed so that the sun passes directly overhead and not in the line of sight of any of the players. It’s a truly spectacular location for enjoying a game of tennis.

On the second floor of this home, there is an elegant and very private master suite that will definitely make you feel like a celebrity. The master bedroom features beautiful high wood cathedral ceilings for a feeling of spaciousness. It also has a large private balcony with views of the mountains. The master suite also includes a spectacular sitting area that has an incredible view of the property, the tennis court, and the mountains beyond. The sitting area features a daybed and large windows so that you can enjoy the amazing view. The sitting area is perfect for reading a book, meditating, or simply enjoying a spectacular sun rise over the mountains (yes, it was designed to take in the full beauty of the incredible desert sunrises). The master bedroom also includes a huge walk in closet that will truly make you feel like a movie star. There’s plenty of room for all of your clothing items (and then some).

Near the closet, the master suite also includes a built-in cosmetics table with a large triple mirror… it’s the perfect place to finish your look before a big night out. The adjacent master bathroom has a large window looking out at a view of the mountains.

There are 3 additional private guest rooms on the second floor of this home. All of them enjoy mountain views. Two of the guest rooms share a full bathroom with double sinks, while the other second floor bedroom has its own bathroom ensuite. All upstairs bedrooms are generously sized and have comfortable king-sized beds.

THE GARDENS
For security and privacy, this estate is totally surrounded by white stucco walls. Most of the walls have hedges next to them - again for privacy and security. There are three beautiful Spanish-style gates. The compound features beautiful lush gardens, a small green lawn, and resort-style outdoor landscape lighting. The gardens highlight a citrus grove with orange trees, grapefruit trees, lemons, and limes - help yourself while they are in season. The garden was designed to provide year-round flowers and includes many plants that have a dazzling scent. Depending upon the time of year, you’ll catch wafts of citrus, jasmine, rose, and other wonderful fragrances.

El Portal is perfect for celebrities who seek total privacy, for executive retreats, and for gatherings of family and friends. You'll have an experience you'll never forget!

Quiet and Peaceful Neighborhood - No Parties Please!

PARKING
There is a strict limit of 5 guest cars allowed for this property, per City ordinance. 2 can be parked in the garage, and 3 on the driveway or on the designated spaces adjacent to the tennis court. But no more than 5 cars total.

OUR MINI VACATION. The home provides everything you can think of. It's also close to the main strip and the neighborhood is very quiet. My favorite room in the house was the relaxation room in the Master bedroom with the beautiful views. 5 star home with a comfortable feeling. We cannot wait to come back to Casa Grande.

A Great Place for Reunions. We came to Palm Springs for a reunion of friends and former neighbors ( Eleven of us total). This house was unbelievable + and there was plenty of space for everyone. This house is frankly beautiful and very well maintained. The Spanish ambience is charming and romantic. I want to come back for a family reunion here, as it is the perfect place for that kind of thing with my friends.

Luxury and Relaxation! This amazing tennis estate had enough room to comfortably host all my guests, while providing a gorgeous setting. The house is decorated beautifully with a Spanish colonial type ambiance, with amazing updates and quaint spaces throughout. We loved the pool and tennis court, while also having various spaces around the home to enjoy cocktails and meals. Location is also perfect, you feel secluded and private while being close to town to enjoy a night out.
