Overlooking the fairway at Tamarisk Country Club is a period home recognized as one of architect William Cody’s midcentury modern masterpieces. 

Built in 1971, the home is positioned on just under an acre of lush grounds and represents a seamless combination of hacienda and modern styles. It features solid walnut hand-carved doors, soaring wood ceilings, exposed beams, and disappearing glass walls.

The property offers a host of amenities for entertaining guests in a grandiose fashion, including a large game room with a piano, seating area, pool table, and laminated hardwood wet bar. In addition, there’s a large kitchen with a walk-in refrigerator. 

Outside, a colorfully glazed sculpture by Viola Frey positioned near the heated pool makes a unique focal point from the rear elevation of the home. A private courtyard features glass roof panels that open at the touch of a button, offering the ultimate indoor-outdoor living and entertaining space.

The main house boasts metal art–sculpted doors and Cody-designed ceramic tile wall art. Residents will enjoy a master wing with a fireplace, private office, lavish bath and steam room, and his and her walk-in closets. The home also includes four bedrooms, 4.5 baths, a separate guest casita, and an attached garage and carport.
