Villa Avalon Las Palmas
Palm Springs
California, USA

4 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms (4 Ensuite), Pool

The architectural, mid-century estate was impeccably restored by renowned architect, Lance O’Donnell, AIA, and inspired by the modernist designs of Albert Frey with elements influenced by Richard Neutra’s Kaufmann House nearby. The former estates of Howard Hughes, Howard Hawks, Lily Tomlin, Barry Manilow, and Jack Benny, surround the completely gated, luxury retreat which evokes a sense of refined minimalism and understated elegance.

The property boasts commanding south and west-facing vistas of the San Jacinto Mountains, and its convenient location is within a 10-minute walk to the famous Riviera Resort, hiking trails, shops, galleries, and cafes in downtown Palm Springs. 

Large concrete pavers cut through the modern desert landscaping and lead up through the front courtyard to an impressive glass and steel pivot door. Walls of sliding glass frame the bright entryway and spacious, geometric living areas and open up to the striking agave and lush flower gardens in the rear and to the front courtyard’s reflecting pool. The soothing sound of the pool’s fountain and the fragrant blossoms from citrus trees in the rear garden add to the seductive, relaxing ambience.

Terrazzo style, honed concrete floors flow through the entire bright and airy open floor plan filled with exclusively commissioned artwork, Italian furniture, and stylish fixtures and amenities. Modern designs found in the residence include Calligaris furniture, Hansa fixtures and Helestra lighting. The gourmet kitchen with its sleek, imported Spanish tile and expansive quartzite counters with built-in serving area and bar overlooks the great room’s dining area, family room and living room. Custom all-white, sculpted cabinetry house the high-end stainless steel appliances including Dacor gas cook-top and double ovens, Sub-Zero full-sized and wine refrigerators, drawer-style Sharp microwave, and Bosch dishwasher-- perfect for creating a superb culinary experience. 
The sleeping quarters include two master suites with modern en-suite bathrooms each containing white quartzite counters and sculpted cabinets, imported tile, and Grohe dual rain showerheads and fixtures. Both showers offer dramatic views of the mountains to the west. Within the second master shower, a sliding glass door offers access to a companion outdoor rain shower surrounded by a bamboo hedge for privacy. Both master suites have their own outdoor living spaces accessed through sliding glass doors-- one opening up to the rear garden and pool area and the other to the private Zen garden with spectacular mountain views, tiled spa, and fire pit.
The two additional modern bedrooms with stylish en-suite bathrooms also offer their own outdoor living areas with captivating mountain views. All guestrooms offer privacy and seclusion from one another and are equipped with wireless Internet access, Sony or Sharp LCD flat-screen TVs, and digital clock stereo radios most with iPod docking stations. 
Relax in the enclosed, rear outdoor living area while taking in the desert sunshine, breathtaking mountain views, and fragrant citrus blossoms and roses. Golf enthusiasts will enjoy practicing on the three-hole putting green. The balmy night weather is ideal for grilling on the steel Weber BBQ, dining alfresco under the covered patio, or viewing the stars while relaxing around the rear fire pit surrounded by the dramatically lit palm tree canopies and landscaping. The refreshing saltwater pool, modern canvas canopy, and patio’s misting system offer soothing comfort from the desert heat. Avalon Las Palmas is the perfect, luxury retreat integrating privacy, relaxation, and sophistication with indoor/outdoor modern desert living.
