Description

K0005 - The Lookout - Permit #pending - TOT 3085

This truly remarkable contemporary-modern home is located on the hillside of the South Palm Springs historic neighborhood known as The Mesa, and was custom designed by local architect Thomas Jakway in 2007, on a lot that is surrounded by Palm Springs folklore. This 3,500 sqft luxury home features many high-end fixtures and amenities, all designed with an obvious artistic attention to detail, including a lift (elevator) connecting the two main levels of the home, motorized blinds on the larger windows, master-controlled landscape and interior lighting and custom artwork and bath fixtures. At the rear of the property you’ll also find the ruins of a structure that has an interesting story of its own, which has been creatively preserved and adapted for use as a unique hang-out space, perfect for Instagram moments.

The interior living space of this home is split on two levels, with your choice of a spectacular glass staircase or a personal elevator to take you from the lower level entry hall to the upper level main living spaces. The lower level consists of the entry hall and direct access to the pool deck and back yard. Also on this lower level are two private guestrooms with en suite baths and plenty of closet space. Each bedroom has its own climate control for individual comfort. The rear guest bedroom offers a King size bed and looks out over the pool through sliding glass doors, and there’s also a door from this bathroom out to the pool so it could double as a pool bath. The front guest bedroom has a King size bed, spacious bathroom and walk-in closet area, and connects the house to the garage down a stairway.

Upstairs you'll find the master bedroom suite, and the great room that includes the living and dining areas and the kitchen, as well as a huge outdoor living terrace and a cooking terrace. Fleetwood multi-stacking glass doors disappear completely into the wall, erasing the line between indoors and out, and taking you from the great room onto a large living/dining terrace with stunning views of the mountains and valley floor. From this terrace, guests often enjoy a symphony of birds from surrounding trees in the morning. In the large open kitchen, you’ll find high end appliances, custom walnut cabinets with Caesarstone countertops and more mountain views. Through the kitchen is a pantry and laundry room, with access to the cooking terrace with its built-in barbecue and view to the back yard and pool deck, so the chef doesn’t miss out on all the poolside fun.

The great room and living/dining terrace create one large space where everyone can hang out together. Here guests will enjoy plenty of seating for watching movies, cooking, eating and playing together, as well as taking in the breathtaking views out all four sides.

The spacious master suite is at the other end of this upper level of the home and features a King bed, gas fireplace and oversized closet and bathroom with a custom stone soaking tub and walk-in shower, as well as its own inspiring views of the dramatic hillside surroundings.

Out back, the exciting uniqueness of this luxury property continues! The backyard, nestled up against the hillside, is perfect for socializing, sunning or finding spaces for quiet reading or meditation, complete with saltwater pool and spa, wet bar, gas fire pit and your own ruins! You may be lucky enough to also encounter some bighorn sheep coming down the mountain!

THE LOCATION
Neighborhood folklore tells us that the ruins are part of a never-completed project to build a casino on an adjacent lot in the 1920’s (the concrete foundation for that project is also still in place). Two doors to the south is the former home of American author Zane Grey, which was also a casino until the onset of the Great Depression. These hillside lots were chosen as ideal sites for (illegal) gambling establishments because at the time, there were few other structures in the foothills below, so lookouts could easily see anyone approaching, especially law enforcement officers!

The Mesa neighborhood is more than just a historic celebrity enclave. It is in the ideal central location in Palm Springs, directly between downtown and South Palm Springs restaurants and activities including golf courses, biking and hiking trails. This home is walking distance to several popular destinations including Ace Hotel, Moorten Botanical Garden, Mr. Lyons and several other hot spot restaurants.

Please Note: The stairs, uneven rocky surfaces and ruins make this property less suitable for unattended or small children.
