Perched high over the valley adjacent to The Ritz-Carlton in Rancho Mirage, this Mirada Estates home epitomizes open-space luxury living. The 5,000-square-foot entertainer’s dream — built in 2009 and featured on HGTV’s Million Dollar Homes — offers spectacular panoramic views of the mountains and the city lights below.
Curves, angles, neutral colors, soaring glass doors, and sleek metal accents fuse effortlessly in this ultramodern, airy, open-plan Brian Foster design. A custom chef’s kitchen boasts commercial-quality appliances, an iridescent tile backsplash, and a custom curvilinear island with dining space. An additional casual dining area leads to a great room aglow with wall-to-wall backlighting and a 10-foot-long fireplace set off with metal and slate.
Created as an “energy vortex,” the home’s formal dining area nestles behind a crescent-shaped water feature with a lily pad–like access step. A curved wall and large circular overhead lighting fixture combine with the water’s clockwise flow to produce a calming environment. A home theater, stunning master retreat, two additional en suite bedrooms, four baths, and a state-of-the-art home lighting and security system complete the indoor living space.
The home’s formal dining area.
A set of four 12-foot-high pocket glass sliders off the great room disappear into the wall for a seamless indoor-outdoor transition. The 60-foot infinity-edge pool, spa, and fire features spread over a 22,651-square-foot lot serve as a blissful setting for enjoying views of the valley floor.
Mirada Estates residents enjoy privileged access to The Ritz-Carlton’s world-class dining, top-notch fitness and spa facilities, and catering to the doorstep.
The property is also available for lease.
