Windermere Real Estate is again thrilled to be participating in the 10th Annual Discovery Home Tour, proceeds from which will benefit the Children’s Discovery Museum of the Desert. This exciting event draws greater interest each year, providing a rare look into some of the most distinctive private homes in Rancho Mirage. The Discovery Home Tour, open Sunday, February 13, from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, will feature architectural styles ranging from Mediterranean to Modern.
Two of the six very special homes bringing exceptional magic to the Tour are situated in the exquisite Coronado Rancho Mirage development. Both the 7,497 square-foot Bougainvillea and the 7,600 square-foot Brittle Brush incorporate cutting edge design, and though each brings its own distinct provenance (one ultra-modern and the other (California/Mediterranean), they share features reserved for the most discerning owner, including 1,000-bottle wine rooms and custom artisan wood and stone finishes.
This year’s Discovery Home Tour event is especially notable, as proceeds will help fund the current expansion of the Children’s Discovery Museum of the Desert. Included in the Museum’s plans is a secondary exploratory gallery slated to feature 11 new, innovative exhibits incorporating science, balance, flexibility, and more. Also part of the expansion: an outdoor play area, and additional parking.
This year’s Annual Discovery Home Tour gives those with interest in fine desert architecture a special opportunity to experience firsthand some of the most beautiful and desirable residential properties anywhere in the desert, while at the same time helping to nurture bright, inquisitive children by supporting the Children’s Discovery Museum of the Desert.
