Built in the Early California architectural style, this home sits squarely within the verdant 712-acre Vintage Club, one of the country’s most affluent golf and tennis communities, where captains of industry and self-made millionaires come to unplug and recharge.

The custom 5,600-square-foot house offers the best of this relaxed yet posh desert lifestyle, opening to expansive outdoor living space, replete with a large swimming pool and separate spa, a fire pit, a barbecue kitchen with built-in counter seating and numerous areas for lounging that afford picturesque views of Eisenhower Peak, a meandering lake, and the sixth hole of the club’s 18-hole Tom Fazio Desert Course.

In addition to arched openings, high beam and coffered ceilings, and an open floor plan with wall-to-ceiling windows and sliding walls that blur the line between indoors and outdoors, the home — which underwent a complete renovation this year — boasts a state-of-the-art gourmet kitchen, dedicated wine room, and great room with a fireplace and media seating.

Another fireplace is located in the oversized master suite, which includes a spacious bathroom suite with a private garden. The guest rooms are equally opulent, each containing its own en suite bathroom. The home is offered furnished, excluding the artwork and area rugs.

Location: Vintage Club golf and tennis community, Indian Wells.

Asking price: $4.495 million.

Year built: 1987 (renovated in 2014).

Square footage: 5,600 of indoor living space; lot size is 22,651.

Amenities: Four bedrooms; five bathrooms; gourmet kitchen; swimming pool and spa; wine room; great room; semicircular driveway; three-car garage; 18-hole Tom Fazio Desert Course; 18-hole Mountain Course, also designed by Tom Fazio; 11 tennis courts, including a stadium court; and a vibrant social and dining scene.
