East meets West with this newly built, 2,552-square-foot abode designed by AIA Award–winning architect Anthony Poon, who brought an Asian-inspired and modern exploration to the new design located in Palm Springs’ Alta Verde Escena golf course community.

Artful composition and succinct rhythm of the vertical planes harmonize in perfect symmetry, resulting in a beautifully balanced living space organized around an art gallery in the center of the residence.

Wall-to-wall glasswork and deep overhangs create elegant, shaded terraces and wide view lines for the indoor-outdoor connection; stunning views of the San Jacinto mountain range and Escena Golf Course lie beyond.

Simplicity at its finest, the open kitchen features a dramatic center island complemented by sleek, sophisticated Italian cabinetry. The expansive living area includes elevated 10-foot floor-to-ceiling sliding doors, pulling the majestic mountain views indoors. The luxurious pool and spa is oriented for maximum sun exposure, and the outdoor space lends itself to living the desert resort lifestyle.

The spacious layout also offers three bedrooms, 2.5 baths, a library, and a two-car garage, as well as energy-saving features such as a white reflective cool roof, drought-tolerant landscape, integrated solar panels, and tankless water heaters.
