DUE TO COVID RESTRICTIONS- The Home os not included in the listing/pricing without separate agreement.
Built in the late 1960s and situated at the end of a near quarter-mile private paved driveway, the home’s mid-century modern architecture soars above the Joshua Tree desert horizon with large windows and breathtaking views from every room. Made of solid block adorned with native natural stone, the retro/vintage architecture is perfectly complimented by serving dually as a private art gallery that features original artworks from celebrated artisans—including original large outdoor sculptures of a Bighorn Sheep and Roadrunner placed among the rocks, created by the home's original builder, esteemed artist sculptor Howard Pierce. The home features a grand piano in the drawing room and a vaulted sunroom overlooking Downtown Joshua Tree and its renowned desert night skies. Multiple covered and uncovered patios are located throughout the estate, including an outdoor spa with awe-inspiring mountain views, and a propane grill. It also features one small 3/4 and one full bath that remain in their original vintage form, and three bedrooms -- each with a queen bed and with an additional futon in the master bedroom. The kitchen carries the original vintage vibe of the home, as do the unique and post modern furnishings.

Mid-Century Mecca in the Desert
Pristine desert location. The house backs up to a sizable hill which is all federal land and there is also federal land in front of the house so there is a vast open desert landscape. The vista in the distance is all mountains.
