A guide to new residential developments in teh coachella valley



Tuscan, Spanish Colonial, and midcentury-inspired Modern homes are surfacing on the desert landscape like so many wildflowers. From contemporary condos to mountain mansions, the homes in new residential developments share a common denominator that makes the Coachella Valley so darn popular: the amenities!

Home buyers insist that communities go beyond the basics of golf, tennis, swimming, and dining. This mandate has set a high standard for gracious living — one that appeals to the elite and the up-and-coming.

World-class golf courses, spas, fitness centers, and casually elegant clubhouses add to the breathtaking views that distinguish the desert’s finest communities and the lifestyle they offer.

Invariably, real estate agents tout the Coachella Valley’s beauty and relaxing atmosphere, especially the stunning views of the Santa Rosa & San Jacinto Mountains National Monument. Active social calendars, refreshing water features, and well-placed public art complete the picture of the perfect desert community.

On the following pages, we point out the new communities that continue to make the Coachella Valley an irresistible place to call home.
