For under $2 million you can own a piece of iconic Rancho Mirage history! This magnificent modern masterpiece sits on the 15th green of Tamarisk Country Club and just received a $100,000 price reduction, making it the best-priced property on the golf course.
And a home this special cannot be duplicated for the price! Why, you ask? Because it was custom designed by one of the ’80s most renowned interior designers, Kalef Alaton. The designer – who passed away from complications of AIDS in the ’80s in Los Angeles – leaves behind a lasting legacy, best known as one of the greatest influences on the Californian residential interiors of the “Me-First Decade.”
His four-bedroom, four-full-and-two-half-bathroom residence at 71070 La Paz Road in Rancho Mirage was reimagined seven years ago by none other than Mark Godson as his personal home.
Godson spends his time between Palm Springs and Dallas – selling with Keller Williams Luxury Homes in Palm Springs, while forming The Britannia Group at Compass in Dallas. “I am selling luxury properties in both states,” he says. “But I’m downsizing in the desert.”
This presents a rare opportunity for buyers to snag a move-in ready modern with an exclusive golf course address in one of Rancho Mirage’s most desirable enclaves.
“The home has a resort feel with oversized pool and separate spa,” says Godson. “It has numerous lounge areas including one with an outside TV, plus an outdoor kitchen and bathroom.”
But it’s not simply the swoon-worthy, outdoor oasis that has us sold. The home is bursting with thought-provoking design, offering a show-stopping living room that is over 40 feet with fireplaces flanking each end. Other highlights include Egyptian limestone floors, a SubZero gourmet kitchen, walk-in climate controlled wine cellar, and movie-quality master suite.
“It’s known as the owner’s retreat,” dishes Godson. “And it’s over 1,500 square feet with a sitting room draped in grasscloth wallpaper. The bedroom has a fireplace and spa bathroom with oversized shower, floating tub facing its own fireplace, and a ‘Sex in The City Carrie Bradshaw’ master closet with Lucite drawer fronts.”
A guest wing featuring two bedrooms with en-suite baths, plus an additional fourth bedroom and bath, are ideal for hosting a crowd. We can only imagine the fabulous parties and holiday events this legendary estate affords.
