Talk about making an entrance. The street approach to this beautiful Mediterranean-style residence from Compass Real Estate in Rancho Mirage has rustic wooden doors surrounded by a tall privacy hedge. They open to reveal a charming pergola and a long brick walkway that leads to a grand, arched portico that shelters a glass front door framed by wrought iron.
This private estate is located on prestigious Clancy Lane – close to the restaurants, shops, and art galleries of The River and the El Paseo Shopping District – with views of the San Jacinto and Santa Rosa Mountain ranges.
Elegant travertine floors flow throughout the main residence which includes four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms in over 6,300 square feet. There’s a great room with living area, a formal dining room, wet bar, family room with a fireplace, wood-beam vaulted cathedral ceilings, and skylights. All three guest bedrooms have ensuites and there’s an upper level with a huge game/media room.
The large, architecturally designed kitchen has an island with a prep sink and the room is outfitted with granite countertops, an integrated Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, a Dacor stove/oven/microwave, Bosch dishwasher, Kitchen-Aid compactor, and Miele cappuccino maker.
The entrance to the house has rustic wooden doors surrounded by a tall privacy hedge.
The master bedroom is a true retreat with a separate seating area that has a fireplace surrounded by a finished-form concrete mantel/hearth; a massive walk-in closet with built-in shelving; and an ensuite with granite countertops, travertine floors, a glass shower enclosure, jacuzzi soaking tub, and upgraded vanity cabinets. In fact, all of the bathrooms have been upgraded with cabinetry that complements what’s been used throughout the home.
Retractable glass walls open the house to an outdoor entertainer’s patio, a pool/spa with a foliage-camouflaged waterslide, a fire pit, grilling center, and a professionally landscaped, almost one-acre lot with citrus trees. Several rooms also have French doors that open to private patios.
In addition, there’s a detached guest house with a living room, bedroom, bathroom, and an outdoor shower.
The property also includes a three-plus bay garage and 4.5 kilowatt, 18-panel owned solar system that provides power to both the main residence and the guest house.
