This spectacular Santa Barbara-style estate delivers on its indoor/outdoor living experience.

Lawrence Karol Home & Design, Real Estate

Paradise awaits you in the incredible tropical backyard of the almost two-thirds-of-an-acre lot.

To say that you’ll make a grand entrance when you walk into this home on Tamarisk Lane in Rancho Mirage is a vast understatement. This spectacular Santa Barbara-style estate features travertine flooring, walls of glass that open with the push of a button to enhance your indoor/outdoor living experience, 13-inch crown mouldings, five fireplaces, and two pools.

Some of the other many custom amenities of the almost 6,300 square foot, five-bedroom, seven-bathroom property include a tavern with a temperature-controlled wine room, an outdoor palapa with a bar/kitchen, and a separate 1,500-square-foot detached casita containing a living room, fireplace, a small wet bar, and two en-suite bedrooms separated from one another for privacy. Plus, both bedrooms have their own access to the patio and pool.

In the main house, a gourmet chef’s kitchen opens to the family room and has pocket doors that lead out to a covered patio. Special custom-made granite countertops lend a uniqueness to the design which is complemented by GE Monogram appliances, a custom-designed range hood, and three colorful Tiffany lamps that hang over a large island with seating for five people.

The stately master suite provides access to the pool/spa and has an opulent walk-in closet the size of a bedroom. It’s outfitted with pull-down hanging racks and a large dresser in the middle. The luxurious master bath has marble countertops, plus a steam shower and jacuzzi soaking tub that also have marble finishes.

Paradise awaits you in the incredible tropical backyard of the almost two-thirds-of-an-acre lot. There’s a pool and spa just off the living room, along with a stunning lap pool and spa with water features near the casita, and an outdoor fireplace (all of the home’s fireplaces are faced in travertine except the master bedroom’s, which is marble). And you’ll love to entertain in the charming palapa that seats over 20 people and is adjacent to a private putting green.


Additional highlights of this special estate are a striking circular driveway, a panic room, and seven separate zones for air conditioning and heating in the main house—including a finished, air-conditioned, three-car, 768-square-foot garage with a tile floor and surround sound.

Located in a quiet neighborhood just a stone’s throw from Sunnylands, this in an ideal location for privacy, yet just a short distance from Rancho Mirage’s many amenities.
