A note from Curtis ...
Just a few hours from both Los Angeles and San Diego, my beautiful home of Palm Springs is nestled at the base of Mt. San Jacinto. Palm Springs is just one of eight desert communities that make up “The Coachella Valley”, with each city bringing its own diverse culture with a backdrop of stunning scenery.
The Coachella Valley is known worldwide for its picturesque views, clean air, vivid blue skies and relaxed environment. Add to the nature aspect, world-class restaurants, entertainment, and festivals…and you have the perfect setting for your desert home.
The cities in the Palm Springs area are as eclectic as their citizens. They are full of yearly festivals and entertainment options that will keep you as busy as you like. In your spare time enjoy the countless hiking trails and outdoor activities, including exploration of nearby Joshua National Park.
Are you looking for a lifestyle of relaxation? Look no further as we thrive on our pool time under crystal blue skies while sipping on famous Palm Springs cocktails and enjoying lively conversation with friends and family. It’s a very friendly place!
Is Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley a good place for you to live? Here’s what you need to know.
PALM SPRINGS EMBRACES ITS MID-CENTURY ROOTS
Palm Springs is as closely identified with mid-century architecture as any city in the United States. Visionaries like Richard Neutra, Albert Fray and Donald Wexler designed futuristic buildings here between 1945 and 1975 creating the term mid-century modern. The clean modern lines were designed and built to blend in with the mountains and skies and the stunning desert landscape. During the last 15 years the modernist movement has been revived making Palm Springs ground zero for modernist from all over the world to flock and experience all Palm Springs has to offer.
THE CITY HAS A PLACE THAT’S RIGHT FOR YOU
Palm Springs is a colorful cross between modern and southwestern architecture. Residential homes dot palm tree-lined residential streets with desert scenery abound. Large lots include plenty of space for our outdoor activities which include pools, spas, fire pits and outdoor living spaces.
