Scott Histed, LUXE Director at Bennion Deville Homes, recently announced an undisclosed client closed escrow on perhaps one of the most coveted and architecturally- significant properties in Palm Springs. Located in the Old Las Palmas neighborhood, the residence has been sold for nearly $6 million. According to local MLS records, this is the highest recorded sale in history within the City of Palm Springs and further demonstrates that the market for high-end luxury properties continues to be robust.
Listed by TTK Represents and located on N. Patencio Road, the property features an 8,060 square foot main residence situated on 1.48 acres of lushly landscaped property. Designed by architect Donn Boss, a protégé of A. Quincy Jones, the house is surrounded by seven negative edge pools, giving the appearance that the house gently floats on water. The expansive grounds, designed by renowned landscape architect Steve Martino, include a soaring privacy hedge, multiple fire features, exquisitely-designed lawn features and a state-of-the-art tennis court, all surrounded by dramatic mountain views.
“This property is a stunning example of the kind of dramatic living experience buyers can acquire in the Coachella Valley,” Scott says. “My clients were enamored with the house’s sleek design and the many reflective pools that surround it. This unique property offers luxury and privacy in one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in Palm Springs.”
The residence features 5 bedrooms, 5 full baths, 2 half baths, walls of glass for uninterrupted views, limestone and oak floors, a Varenna Poliform kitchen, Agape bathrooms, Fleetwood doors, a 3-car garage, a fully equipped mother-in-law apartment, a glassed-in central atrium, and multiple interior fireplaces.
Conceived and built by Marc Ware known for his company “Hot Cotton” in 2007, Mr. Ware spared no expense in his thoughtful and concise of its design and construction.
“We would like to congratulate Scott on his involvement with such a monumental transaction,” says Bob Deville, Co-Founder of Bennion Deville Homes. “We have seen activity pick up in the luxury home market of late with the sale of this property, as well as a few other notable homes, including the Kirk and Anne Douglas Tennis Estate. Hopefully this momentum will carry through the summer and into next season.”
