Palm Desert, CA

Now in Escrow, the custom desert residence of the late novelist and artist John Weston. In a world of cookie-cutter tract homes, this is truly one-of-a-kind. Designed around a private central courtyard by legendary local architect John Vuksic, the creator of many custom homes in Bighorn, Mirada, the Reserve and other landmark desert developments, it sits on a 12,632 sq. ft. elevated lot in the gated South Palm Desert neighborhood of Vista Paseo. This solar (owned, not leased) home features nearly 3,800 square feet of living space, a 45 foot salt water pool with spa and so many more elegant touches both inside and out. There are four bedrooms, each with their own ensuite bath, a separate powder room, an attached casita/studio/office with separate entry and a walk-in chilled wine closet. The island kitchen boasts slab granite counter tops, all stainless steel appliances with a Wolf gas cooktop, dual KitchenAid ovens along with a warming tray, a KitchenAid stainless built-in double door refrigerator, trash compactor and KitchenAid dishwasher. There is a formal living room, separate formal dining room along with an informal great room/den featuring gorgeous views of the pool area and mountains beyond. Outdoors in addition to the pool and spa you'll find an outdoor fireplace and peaceful waterfall feature. All exterior doors are wood with many French doors. Floors are Italian porcelain or wood with slate patio flooring outside.
