This is your opportunity to take in all the colorful surprises the Villa Sierra compound offers beyond its Instagram-famous pink doors! This iconic midcentury desert ranch by TV set designer-turned-architect James H. McNaughton offers expansive public rooms of grand proportions and floor-to-ceiling windows that blur the boundary of inside and outside. You’ll enjoy taking in the manicured grounds, towering palm trees, and captivating mountain views which permeate the brilliantly designed open living space of this 5,300 square-foot home.
Styled in a chic, Hollywood Regency scheme, the home excites the imagination with its globally inspired collection of art and richly colored decor and finishings, including a Byzantine blue leather sofa, a canary yellow glass-top bistro table and pistachio green cabinetry in the gourmet kitchen. A billiard room features a powder-blue pool table set against a baroque stained-glass window and the adjacent wet bar, while a separate lounge area features an elevated, built in chaise-style lounge sofa, limited edition Claritone stereo like the one Sonny and Cher had in their Palm Springs home, and a pair of armchairs surrounding a marble fireplace with striking sculptures and grass-paper lined walls.
