Property Description

Originally designed and built by Robson Chambers in 1947 shortly after he began working with Albert Frey and John Porter Clark this Araby Cove home in South Palm Springs has a storied past. Captivating and inspiring are two words that come to mind to describe, Desert Boulders. Double lot with .60 acre 360 degree mountain views with open space to the North give the feeling of solitude and calm. New addition features a large deck that overlooks the property and recently added 60' lap pool with tanning shelf. Desert Boulders was reimagined by seasoned fashion designers Loyd Ford whose work has been featured on many celebrities and in the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum. The upper level offers a captivating primary suite with sitting room and fireplace and spa area with infrared sauna. Just outside the primary suite is a coffee bar and additional bedroom currently set up as a gym. Brutalist interior architecture and uncomplicated surfaces are prime elements in this mesmerizing sanctuary with cement flooring in most rooms and the kitchen still has one wall that was once part of the bomb shelter from the 1950's. That area now opens up to the beautiful grounds with firepit feature, outdoor shower and additional outdoor bonus room that could be an artist studio, game room or meditation room. The location and siting of this property is one of the best in Palm Springs which is why we are sure that the original famed architect chose this legendary spot.
