We're not exaggerating in the slightest when we say this extraordinary, private tennis estate in the prestigious, guard-gated community of Southridge in Palm Springs has "views to die for."
Built in 1964 with an exterior clad in a gorgeous, midcentury flagstone, this one-of-a-kind residence is on the market for the first time in over 50 years by Nelson Moe Properties. Massive, beautifully carved double doors lead into a private open-air courtyard with multiple, covered living areas and one of the property's two pools. This lovely space is also in the center of the home's classic, C-shaped layout.
Once you're inside this graceful six-bedroom, 6.25-bathroom, over 5,300-square-foot house, you'll be surrounded by walls of glass that merge the indoors with stunning, panoramic views of the valley floor and mountains. The main living areas include a living room with a fireplace, family room/bar, and raised dining room. All of the spaces are distinguished by glazed terracotta tile floors and tongue-and-groove ceilings with wood beams. Many of the rooms—the living room, family room, master bedroom, master bath, and two guest suites—open on to a deck that runs along the home's perimeter.
In addition, the three guest bedroom suites, two staff bedrooms, and a well-separated master suite all have exceptional views. The master en-suite has a sunken tub with views of the entire valley, floor-to-ceiling glass walls, marble countertops, and dual vanities, as well as dual walk-in closets. The home's other bathrooms have elegant touches such as custom wall coverings and marble countertops.
The grounds are manicured with lush landscaping, beautiful old olive trees, and natural stone paths. In addition to a custom jacuzzi that's just steps from the home's main living areas, you'll love the dramatic, infinity-edge swimming pool that's been sited at the furthest point of the property's mountain edge.
Included with this offering is a one-acre lot featuring a hard-surface tennis court — with views that rival those of the main residence, along with a separate private driveway — for a total of approximately 2.25 acres.
