Local architect Narendra Patel has designed commercial and residential buildings throughout the desert and in numerous countries — including more than two dozen projects in China — and his affinity for natural elements is on full display in this custom Rancho Mirage home. The estate, which is currently on the market for $1,849,000, is one of only four properties in a quiet, gated development that feels private yet is close to all of the city’s shops and restaurants.
An angled pivoting glass door is your introduction to an open-plan great room distinguished by 14-foot ceilings, limestone floors, and oversized glass windows and doors that fill the four-bedroom, 5.5-bathroom, 4,650-square-foot house with natural light. “The interior is open, airy, bright and has a great flow for entertaining,” says real estate agent Richard Bartholomew of The Agency.
The expansive great room also has a sunken-bar and a fireplace with a dramatic angled limestone surround. Some of the home’s additional features include Lutron lighting, a 12-camera security system, office, and gym, plus each bedroom and the garage have their own air-conditioning units which enhances the home’s energy efficiency and personalization.
