June 07, 2024

What’s it like to live in an enchanted forest? Nestled on a gentle slope surrounded by over 300 Joshua trees on 2.25 sprawling acres, this extraordinary 1957 mid-century modern home is a park-like retreat.

nside, the modest footprint feels expansive thanks to soaring cathedral ceilings and mountain views in every direction. Original details like casement windows, a stacked stone fireplace, vintage woodstove, and beamed ceilings have been lovingly maintained while modern comforts like energy-efficient mini splits and a solar system have been added for year-round enjoyment. A thoughtful floor plan invites you to spread out and stay a while; imagine yourself at game night around the fireplace, bird-watching at the picture window, preparing a feast in the spacious kitchen, or curling up for a catnap in one of the generously-sized bedrooms.

Take in the vibrant sunset colors over the snow-capped San Gorgonio mountains from your front patio canopied by a towering 100 ft fir tree. Everything is just a little bit cooler here thanks to the 3,500 ft elevation – you may even forget you’re in the desert! Speaking of cool, Instagrammable moments abound from the ultra-fab octagon deck & hot tub around back, enveloped by Joshua trees & starry skies. Electricity bills are yet another thing you won’t need to worry about while enjoying your oasis, thanks to the 8.4 kW OWNED solar system grandfathered into NEM 2.0. This property consists of one 1.98 acre parcel with an additional . 27 acre attached lot for a total of 2.25 lush fully fenced acres just minutes from downtown Yucca Valley and Joshua Tree National Park.
