You can’t get much closer to having a mountain view than the one set to be the backdrop for a new group of homes currently under construction off Belardo Road, just south of Morongo Road, in Palm Springs.
Dakota, a six-acre gated community, is set right up against the mountains and will have 39 single-family, two-story detached homes that each come with their own private pool and spa as well as a two-car attached garage.
There are two floor plans, both with two bedrooms and two-and-one half baths, between 1,530 and 1,772 square feet.
The project is being built by Wessman Development in partnership with Decided Group Palm Springs, a full-service real estate firm. The modern-style homes were designed by the architectural firm Design Arc, which has studios in Los Angeles and Santa Barbara and has completed a number of projects in Palm Springs.
“All the homes come standard with Viking appliances, Hans Grohe fixtures, Blanco sinks, tankless water heaters, La Cantina sliders, Porcelanosa tile, and wood flooring, to name a few,” says Heidi Meaney, director of sales for Decided Group. “They are also wired for solar, audio/ video and security.”
Each home will have its own private pool and spa.
There are two floor plans, both with two bedrooms and two-and-one-half baths. The larger floor plan will be 1,772 square feet and has a sitting room/den upstairs in between the two bedroom. In the model unit, this space will be furnished with a desk, fold-out couch, and television, Meaney says.
The other floor plan is 1,530 square feet and will have two-story ceiling height in the living room.
The new group of homes are currently under construction off Belardo Road, just south of Morongo Road, in Palm Springs.
“The target buyer would probably be a professional couple looking for a second home, although these homes are also great for a primary residences as the master bedrooms are spacious with walk-in closets and both floor plans have en-suite bathrooms with double sinks,” says Meaney.
Models should be available for viewing in mid-April, and the first phase of homes is estimated for completion toward the end of June.
The estimated price range for the homes is from the high $500,000s to the high $600,000s.
