Casa Rancho Mirage magnificently stands in the sheltered cove of the Palm Springs Valley, spreading its lush, green carpet across the Colorado desert floor from the Santa Rosa Mountains to the mighty snow-capped San Jacinto range. Boasting 5 acres, a private lake and waterfalls, this spectacular estate is set behind iron gates with a winding stone-paved drive. Inside the massive iron and glass doors, Casa Rancho Mirage features approximately 18,000 square feet, 7 bedrooms, 8 baths, 2 powder rooms, an expansive foyer with twin circular marble staircases and an overhead bridge, 24 foot coffered ceilings, tall arched windows, a great room large enough to host a party with several hundred guests, and a 2 bedroom guest house with living room, and full kitchen. Fine finishes embellish the entire house, from the massive fireplaces with elaborate mantles, hand-painted Venetian plaster walls to custom wallpaper and hand-forged iron railings. Other features include a Victorian theater, stately library, game room, sauna and steam room, a gourmet kitchen and a separate service kitchen and butler’s pantry. The exterior is complete with a gazebo, glass-tiled pool with grotto, barbecue, tennis court and Ficus lined maze and victory garden.
