Overview

About the property

Private 1 Bedroom Bungalow With Private Pool

The old Racquet Club may be gone, yet the lore lives on.

Originally owned by actress Joan Fontaine (perhaps this was her Palm Springs pied à terre) and later by actor Tab Hunter (perhaps his desert hideaway bungalow or his private pool-house pad), seclusion has always been central and essential. The architecturally stylish property is totally enclosed, overlooked by swaying palms and embraced by ficus, pyracantha, bougainvillea, calliandra, dwarf bottlebrush, blue elf aloe, climbing fig, crimson flare honeysuckle and heavenly bamboo, with a large private patio and sparkling private pool. It boasts western views of the mountains that are nothing short of stunning.

The living / great room is airy and light, featuring 10’ ceilings, an Italian stone fireplace & mantelpiece and walls of floor to ceiling windows showcasing a spectacular view of the San Jacinto Mountains (named for Saint Hyacinth). The kitchen is updated with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances.

The bedroom, which can be closed off from the living room or en suite, has beautiful marble floors, a 10’ high ceiling and a large Fleetwood sliding glass door leading out to the breakfast patio.

This 1,062 sq. ft., one bedroom, one bath get-away in the beautiful Club Condominium complex, designed by renowned architect William Cody, offers classic Mid-Century Modern architectural design for the perfect desert retreat. The gated, secure complex is beautifully landscaped and also offers dedicated covered parking and a large heated community pool and spa just a short walk from the bungalow.

I am sharing my home-away-from-home for the first time as a vacation rental.
