DESERT LIVING

Yucca Valley

Yucca Valley is a medium-sized town located in the state of California. With a population of 21,726 people and five constituent neighborhoods. Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Yucca Valley is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both.  Only 1 hour from Victorville and Riverside and a mere 35 minutes to Palm Springs. If you want to enjoy the rural life amidst a mash-up of chic indoor-outdoor restaurants, big box stores, a multitude of mom-and-pop shops and the desert’s famous music venue, Pappy & Harriet’s (the club attracts artists and musicians from all over the world), this is a great place in the desert. Favorite neighborhoods include: Yucca Trail, Joshua Lane, Pioneertown, Rimrock, Aberdeen Drive, Avalon Ave, Old Woman Springs Road, Flamingo Heights

Joshua Tree

Joshua Tree is a census-designated town located on State Route 62 in San Bernardino County, 50 to 80 miles east of Los Angeles and Orange County. October, April and May are the most pleasant months in the 92252 zip code. Thanks to the community’s wildly popular Joshua Tree National Park, the area is frequented by hikers, outdoor adventurers, and spiritual enthusiasts. Even though this national park is one of the community’s main focal points, Joshua Tree isn’t just a rural area filled with plant life and trees. Joshua Tree has become an extremely popular weekend vacation spot, especially in recent years, so homes that are common in the community are either vacation homes, full-time homes, or short-term rentals. Homeowners might find living in Joshua Tree an ideal spot for relaxing and getting in touch with nature.

29 Palms

Twentynine Palms was named for the palm trees found there in 1852 by Col. Henry Washington while surveying the San Bernardino base line.  A post office was established in 1927. A road named Utah Trail honors the late 1800s pioneers on a trail originating in Utah that went to Twentynine Palms. The skies are beautiful. It is a place of extremes.  A place like no other, one stuck in time, full of hipsters, hillbillies, desert rats, marines and artists. The most extreme of extremes. But it’s hard not to fall in love with the purple mountains, the starry night sky, the endless empty land. Favorite neighborhoods: Adobe, Cambell Hill, Chocolate Drop, Copper Mountain East, Desert Heights, Four Corners, Hansen Area, Harmony Acres, Indian Cove, Sherman Heights, Smoke Tree, The Plaza, Wonder Valley

La Quinta

The City of La Quinta is a resort town located in Riverside County, California, specifically in the Coachella Valley between Indian Wells and Indio. La Quinta is almost entirely surrounded by the Santa Rosa Mountains making for specular views from almost anywhere within the city. The name of the city, in Spanish, literally translates into “the fifth”, but also in Portuguese, a “quinta” is a wine producing estate, which can be a winery or a vineyard. If you are searching for the perfect golf course community for a second home or for a full-time residence, La Quinta has one of the best selections of high-end and mid-range golf and country clubs in the Coachella Valley.

Palm Springs

If you’re a mid century modern fan, you will be in awe as you drive through the many neighborhoods of Palm Springs.  There are technically four neighborhoods —Vista Las Palmas, Indian Canyons, Twin Palms, Deep Well Estates — where you can find many of the famous Alexander Construction homes, built between the years of 1957-1966, which were designed by architect William Krisel. These were highly sought after homes back then due to their function and affordability and are still highly sought after today. There are many other examples of mid century modern architecture in all of our favorite neighborhoods: Old Las Palmas, Vista Las Palmas, Little Tuscany, Movie Colony, Indian Canyons, Deep Well Estates, Twin Palms 

Rancho Mirage

Incorporated in 1973, Rancho Mirage began as a rural community and blossomed into a luxury oasis for the wealthy and the influential after the Second World War. Many influential names, such as philanthropists Walter and Leonen Annenberg of the Annenberg Estate (Sunnylands), built resort-style abodes in the city. Following the increasing popularity of Rancho Mirage, more investors came and developed the attractions that would help transform the city as we know it today. This includes many of Rancho Mirage’s golf courses, the Ague Caliente Resort and Casino, and the city’s collection of exclusive gated communities. Favorite neighborhoods: Thunderbird Heights, Thunderbird Country Club, Tamarisk Country Club, Mirada Estates
