Breathtaking architectural and tropical fantasy situated on a private peninsula in the premier location of Old Las Palmas. Perfectly sited to take full advantage of the desert's magical sunlight and majestic San Jacinto mountains, this brilliantly crafted residence with park-like gardens is truly a "destination of imagination." Infused with European Colonial style architecture found in 1930's Hawaii and Indonesia, it immediately creates a mood of mystery, extravagance, refinement, romance and adventure. The exceptional and alluring residence includes a colonnade entry, a palatial great room with 15 foot ceiling, stone flooring and exquisite antique fireplace, garden/dining loggia with fireplace, generous family room/kitchen and lavish primary suite, both with fireplaces, elegant guest wing, library (easily converted to an additional bedroom) and charming, private self-contained casita. And the grounds ... towering palms, rolling lawns, swimmer's pool, private stone-clad spa, multiple fountained courtyards, an orchard and even a rose garden. There is a poetic completeness about this private oasis that gently washes over you. Rarely has there been a property of this quality and provenance available for sale. There may never be again. Some furnishings may be available under separate contract. Shown only to pre-qualified clients.
