SkyRanch Sonora was created by a well-known (and, yes, edgy...) film producer and a prominent screenwriter who married and used this dramatic setting for film maker retreats. American Psycho was not written here, but a number of their other films were. Renowned actors and directors have all enjoyed this stunning location with it's monumental skylines and creative vibes in this comfortable and expansive 5-bed, 4500 square foot desert house.
SkyHouse Joshua Tree
A new standard for the high desert, SkyHouse is a signature architectural and inspirational hideaway perched on 8 private acres in the heart of Joshua Tree, with a luxury pool and direct walking access to miles of national park trails.
SkyHouse is the collective expression of lifelong Los Angeles friends with a passion for the desert, for art and for living well. We hope our home provides you with the same sense of awe we experience each time we visit Joshua Tree.
