First impressions are important and you’ll certainly be impressed when you see the clean, modern architectural style on display at this tennis estate in Thunderbird Cove. But even more important are what the luxurious amenities and unique features of this property really deliver: a lasting impression.
You approach the home through a massive, beautifully landscaped courtyard flanked by a waterfall. A pivoting glass front door opens onto a large entry with hardwood floors that seamlessly weave together all the living spaces of this custom-built, 10,000-square-foot, eight-bedroom, eight-bathroom (plus one partial bath) estate.
Spread out over almost two private acres with rolling lawns, there are three guest suites located in the main house, as well as four more guest suites in an attached casita and two detached guest houses—and all of the bedrooms are en-suite. Each of the bathrooms was designed with statuary white marble on the countertops, floors, and walls, as well as mirrored walls with built-in lighting.
Glass walls throughout the home create a seamless integration between the lavish interior living spaces and the generous outdoor entertaining areas and—combined with long clerestory windows—provide striking views from every perspective. Valley views take in the Chocolate Mountains to the north and, to the southwest, the Santa Rosa Mountains.
The well-appointed, private master suite also has mountain views, along with a fireplace and a bathroom featuring custom, high-gloss zebrawood on the cabinets and tub surround. The master shower is clad in statuary white marble with seamless glass doors and windows.
The main residence’s elegant, sunken living room has a gas fireplace. The large, sleekly designed kitchen is outfitted with black stone and concrete countertops with waterfall edges, Bosch appliances, a stainless steel range hood, and lacquer cabinets.
Outdoors, you’ll find a wide array of amenities including a large, covered outdoor entertainment space, a gas fire pit, a fireplace, pool and raised spa, fountains, a championship clay tennis court, and an acre of expansive lawns.
Thunderbird Cove is one of the most prestigious guard-gated communities in Rancho Mirage and, fittingly, this tennis estate is the epitome of modern elegance, beauty, and sophistication.
