Imagine, for a moment, a place so special, so enchanting, and so undeniably one-of-a-kind that it is almost indescribable. Almost. Welcome to a virtually secret compound high above The Mesa in Palm Springs, where thousands of lights shimmer in the valley below as nature's embrace beckons at every turn. Where a collection of five unique structures unites to create one truly unequaled estate on more than 28 acres of unsurpassed beauty. Beyond a discreet gated entrance awaits a hidden paradise that slowly reveals itself, with a meandering driveway leading past a cascading waterfall and landing at a terrace that unveils a European-inspired villa on the hill above. Terraced on a hillside naturally embellished with dramatically exposed rock, the estate is both impressive and inviting. An open-air carriage, in the form of a custom funicular, carries passengers up to the residence as panoramic views are revealed below. Intimate walkways, large view terraces and secret patios are interspersed among the buildings, some of which date back 100 years to 1923. Explore an outdoor amphitheater, a lagoon-style pool, hiking trails, waterfalls, and an ideal space for creating another custom residence near the top of the property. Approximately 7,280 square feet with 7 bedrooms, 11 baths, a two-room chef's kitchen with wine cellar, onsite parking for more than 20 vehicles, a luxurious separate primary suite with sunset and city views, and an Albert Frey-designed guest house.
