The La Quinta dream, nestled on a sprawling lot with large pool, lush landscaping and unique storied charm. Built in 1935, highlighted in Maggie Gordons book on the Historic Casitas of La Quinta, and thoughtfully reimagined in 2018, this 3 bedroom 2 bath gem offers the rare opportunity to own a private compound in the La Quinta Cove. Pairing old Hollywood flair with the modern elegance of a relaxed private hideaway and defined by its classic Spanish Colonial Revival dash, this property wins your heart the second you enter through the gates and find yourself enchanted: by the instant feel of quintessential privacy and the way the house spreads out in front of you - a prototypical beauty, brimming with romantic timelessness and framed by the scent of orange blossoms, wild peppermint and sage. Step inside through the original Z-style entry door and discover the preserved stylish architectural details - such as classic Saltillo tiled flooring throughout, the wood-beamed vaulted ceiling in the living room, the dual fire place interconnecting living room and library, and the floor-to-ceiling french bi-fold that creates an effortless flow to the dreamy backyard. There is so much more about this peaceful oasis: the spacious en-suite main bedroom to relax and retreat with original hand painted tiled bathroom; the gourmet kitchen with a unique indoor-outdoor counter bar for entertainment with ease; and the spacious exterior, which offers more possibilities to recreate and reclaim that quintessential feel of savoir-vivre. There is a shaded outdoor dining table for intimate al-fresco dinners, framed by bougainvilleas and drought resistant landscaping; a breakfast or coffee area by the olive tree; a fruit producing 50 year old grape vine; an outdoor shower, and a gorgeous 42 feet saline pool with spa and water features that adds to this casita's promise of perfection. A large double garage is a bonus that is ready to be turned into guest quarters, additional bedrooms, a light filled artist studio or private gym for example. Situated at the desirable bottom of the Cove, a short stroll away from coffee shops, bars and restaurants of Old Town La Quinta, and minutes from world class hiking trails by the foothills of the Santa Rosa Mountain range. Close to California's most beautiful golf courses, the PGA West, the Tennis Garden, music festivals such as Coachella and Stagecoach, and all that La Quinta's best and the vibrant Coachella Valley with adjacent Palm Springs has to offer. Updated to modernize yet kept historic integrity of original design throughout. A true jewel of the desert. Perfect as a second home for those who seek the warm and sunny California weather during winter times, or as permanent residence. Must see. Easy to show. (Also available fully furnished outside of escrow). For all inquiries and offer guidelines, contact LA1 call/text.
