Within the gates of Mission Ranch, a community located off esteemed Clancy Lane in Rancho Mirage, lays 40473 Desert Creek Lane, the crown jewel of one of the Coachella Valley’s most exclusive neighborhoods. Designed by renowned Holden & Johnson Architects for Carl Karcher, Jr. of Carl’s Junior fame, and exceptionally appointed inside and out, the floor plan is flawlessly executed with 8 bedrooms, 9 baths, and approximately 8,353 square feet. Sumptuous, bold finishes combine Kelly green, aqua, and salmon, and hints of Hollywood Regency touches. Dramatic visuals and textures echo and play off the natural beauty of the surrounding landscapes to create a unique interior experience. Combined with a tennis court and other immaculate outdoor features, including pool, lounge areas, and fire pit, the entire package is buttoned up into one of the desert’s most exquisite and fashionable retreats available on the market. Even better, an owned solar system reduces the carbon footprint of this palatial estate.
Bold, clean architecture greets you upon arrival and sets the tone for the elegance to come. Boasting stark white cylindrical pillars supporting a squared, open roof with tri-level trimmed trees lining the walkway below, the entry’s symmetrical simplicity creates an appealing invitation to explore the inside. This same concept is repeated around the outside of the house, giving an overall sharp aesthetic to the home’s exterior. Once across the threshold, the incredible attention to detail and pleasing combinations of colors, patterns, and textures is a delight for the senses, kicking off with a full view down a long hallway previewing the optical delights to come.
Featuring custom furniture wrapped in Clearance House, Christopher Farr, and China Seas and cast into moods set by Phillip Jefferies wallpaper, leathers from Moore and Giles, and window treatments embellished with Samuel and Sons trims, the home’s interior design is a culmination of playful, edgy, and colorful appointments working in perfect harmony. Examples include the open sitting room with metallic fireplace surround, walls adorned with golden sun-like mirrors over patterned wallpaper, a cream sectional with pillows showcasing various blue designs, velvety blue chairs, and a rounded salmon ottoman, all connected by a blue and white striped rug. The boldly embellished fireplace divides this sitting room from an adjacent dining room, which boasts the same patterned wall paper and is anchored by an atomic crystal light fixture bisecting a simple white dining table with seafoam green chairs, and a lemon-yellow painting hanging over the same shared fireplace. Sublimely daring style choices and tastes are in every room to go with lavish finishes such as polished travertine floors, countertops and select walls featuring granite and marble, master-crafted cabinetry and woods throughout, and high-end carpets in each bedroom.
Ideal for entertaining in the relaxed desert atmosphere, the backyard retreat is just as impressive as the interior of the home, with subtle, nuanced touches bringing the luxurious feel from inside the home to the outside haven. Several settings for unwinding and hosting guests present themselves, including a covered outdoor dining room, sitting area with couches, in-ground fire pit, and mature citrus grove. A pristine pool with raised spa, featuring cascading waterfall, surrounded by ample sunning space and comfy chase lounges creates the perfect atmosphere to get a tan and rejuvenate in the sparkling waters. Beyond the pool area, a lighted tennis court with basketball hoops on each end provides a sporty escape for an athletic release. If the exterior amenities weren’t enough, westerly views of the San Jacinto mountains paint a jaw-dropping landscape to enjoy from any point in the meticulously manicured yard.
With immaculate attention to detail woven throughout the impressive property, which sits at just above an acre, 40473 Desert Creek Lane is the ultimate posh desert pad to savor the desert lifestyle. For an exclusive, private tour, please contact Constantine Kolytiris or Ryan Pylypow of OMNI Group.
