New Listing! Solar Desert Starlight: Stunning Modern Pool Home


Accommodates: 10

Bedrooms: 5

Bathrooms: 4


Welcome! Get Ready to Enjoy a 5 Star Experience at "Solar Desert Starlight"...

Get ready for the Quintessential Palm Springs Vacation Experience. Solar Desert Starlight will delight you with a multitude of alfresco amenities, a dream backyard, well-designed interiors, many sustainability features, and five deluxe bedrooms comfortably accommodating ten guests. No less than Seven Furnished Outdoor Areas distributed around this walled estate help create enchanting spaces for families and friends to create wonderful memories.

Surrounded by lush eco-desert gardens and inviting outdoor patios. Enjoy mornings floating away in the swimming pool relaxing on semi-submerged loungers. Cook a BBQ lunch on the Weber and relish it alfresco at the poolside table. On cool desert nights, sip champagne in the Spa or cuddle up around the fire feature under the stars. Warm landscape lighting combines with Rich Color Pool Lights to cast a dreamy spell on nighttime gatherings after a wonderful evening on the town.

Enter a private gate to find yourself in a whole new world. Surrounded by private, modern block wall, Desert Starlight first greets you with an inviting Fire Feature placed in an eco-green Mountain View Courtyard. Enter the front, frosted glass door and be transported into a modern reincarnation of this Mid-Century Jewel that Krisel first envisioned in 1957.

All newly re-built, beautifully landscaped and smartly furnished. The Bubbly Spa cascades into the new pool.  One of my favorite places is on the tanning shelf where two can take in the famous Mountain View. BBQ your meals on the Weber and dine al fresco pool-side. Then recap your day around the fire feature. Large groups will enjoy that there are places where everyone can gather together, and yet this estate property is full of places where a few can hide away from it all.

Common Space
The Modern Living Room features comfortable seating, TV with Hulu+LiveTV & Netflix, gas fireplace, modern art, fully-equipped wet bar, inside dining for 10, and floor-to-ceiling views of the beautifully landscaped garden and pool action.

Just bring your food and beverages (though many food staples are provided). Stainless Steel Appliances, Caesarstone Counters, plus all the small appliances you would expect and then some, like the Vertuoline Nespresso machine with starter pods. Thoughtfully labeled cabinets make it easy to prepare meals and entertain with style. The breakfast room seats 4 and has easy Pool access.

5 Star Bedrooms
There's good separation between the Three King Bedrooms, each with luxury bedding, modern decor, newly remodeled en suite bathrooms, indoor seating areas, and outdoor private patios. Two additional bedrooms (King and 2 Twins) share a bath off the hall. Note that one of the bedrooms has high architectural (clerestory) windows that will bring in some morning light, so let the early risers have that room; all the others feature true blackout shades. (Don't tell our architect, but if you wish, we can apply a temporary cover to the clerestory windows for an additional $95 labor fee, our cost.)

5 Star Location
This South Palm Springs location ensures that the frequent Desert Wind won't spoil your outdoor fun. Start your morning with an Easy Stroll to Koffi South for a fresh, locally roasted Espresso beverage. Some evening, you'll want to saunter down to the hip Amigo Room at The Ace Hotel for a local beer or craft cocktail.

Authentic Mid-Century History
You'll get the true Palm Springs vibe at Desert Starlight.  Architected by William Krisel, this is one of the first 39 homes built in 1957 by the Alexander Co. Many of the original architectural elements were kept in this updated MCM home: tongue & groove high ceilings, rock fireplace, and clerestory windows making it bright and connecting you with a time shared by the Hollywood Rat Pack including Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe.

Solar/Sustainable/Green Home
Rest assured that your amazing Palm Springs vacation is nearly carbon neutral and ultra sustainable thanks to the Solar Panel covered roof, native landscaping, eco-grass, and all new energy-efficient windows and sliding doors.

5 Star "Twin Palms" Location
This South Palm Springs location ensures that the frequent Desert Wind won't spoil your outdoor fun. Start your morning with an Easy Stroll to Koffi South for a fresh, locally roasted Espresso beverage. Some evening, you'll want to saunter down to the hip Amigo Room at The Ace Hotel for a local beer or craft cocktail.
