In 2016, Bighorn Golf Club broke ground on a new, state-of-the-art, 80,000-square-foot clubhouse that included four penthouse residences that afford their owners the ultimate in privacy along with a concierge lifestyle. The floor plans for each unit were created by designer Guy Dreier, who lives in nearby Indian Wells and is the son of noted Swiss architect Eduard Dreier.
Completed in 2017, Penthouse 302 has four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms in 5,097 square feet. Previously listed for $9.95 million, the furnished unit will be sold by Concierge Auctions — without reserve to the highest bidder — in cooperation with Donna Eide of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services. Bidding is taking place from May 10–14 via the Concierge Auctions digital marketplace.
Pocket glass doors opens to reveal 2,500 square feet of outdoor living space.
"This penthouse is one of four penthouses in Palm Desert, all of which are at Bighorn, however this is the only one with a pool," says Renee Corrigan, project sales manager at Concierge Auctions. "The design [encompasses] stunning outdoor and indoor living with unique curved lines that flow perfectly from room to room."
In addition to sweeping north and south vistas of the valley and the mountains, the penthouse also has a picturesque view of Bighorn's 18th hole. The spacious, open floor plan has special designer touches such as highly polished Venetian plaster, Swarovski crystals on accent walls, and Italian porcelain flooring throughout the living areas. (The custom furnishings are by Blackbird Interiors, a high-end residential and hospitality firm based in Carlsbad.)
The large kitchen flows into the great room and features Taj Mahal quartzite countertops, a breakfast bar, center island, and Wolf appliances. A vast expanse of pocket glass doors opens to 2,500 square feet of outdoor living space with a fireplace, television, and outdoor kitchen.
There are two master suites with rooftop terrace access, a third suite that overlooks the 18th green, and a fourth suite currently being used as a home office. His-and-hers master baths have steam showers and Starphire glass throughout. Her bath has opal white marble floors, countertops, and walls, while his is outfitted with shower walls that are fossil brown limestone and the flooring is a custom, hexagon mosaic pattern. The hall powder room has a marble integrated sink and crystal lighting fixture.
