Running Water. A Rare Find. A True Sanctuary. A perfect blend of privacy, serenity and contemporary design, Running Water is a meticulously remodeled two-home estate formerly owned by the famed author, Sidney Sheldon. Located in the charming Old Las Palmas neighborhood of Palm Springs, the 1.17 acre property now features a formal gatehouse, custom designed gates, fabulous desert gardens and flowering trees, two swimming pools (social and 75-foot lap), state-of-the-art amenities and spectacular views of the San Jacinto Mountains. Originally built in 1948, the 7,783 square-foot residences have been remodeled in a contemporary Mediterranean style by the current owners. Covered patios facilitate an indoor/outdoor lifestyle. The 5,797 square-foot main house was completely reconfigured to connect the social areas while maintaining the seclusion of the private quarters. The resulting split layout is private yet inviting, with well-proportioned rooms, ceilings of up to 11 feet, and four fireplaces. This home offers: spacious and warm living quarters with sitting room, music room, and formal dining room. Designer chef's kitchen featuring Bulthaup cabinetry and Gaggenau appliances. Screening room perfect for watch parties or a quiet movie night at home. Office with built-in bookshelves and desk. Four bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms featuring contemporary Boffi cabinetry and designer fixtures. Two additional powder rooms, thoughtfully distributed through the home. Large windows that capture breathtaking mountain views and abundant natural light and a Three-car garage. The guest house thoughtfully connected to the main home by stunning gardens is a one-bedroom 1,986 square-foot home with a separate address. This home was re-conceived by the current owners to provide for guest accommodations. Maximizing mountain views, this home features dining and living rooms, and a primary bedroom with walk-in closet and ensuite bathroom. Gaggenau appliances, Bulthaup and Boffi cabinetry and clean lines provide a feel similar to the main home. The guesthouse additionally includes an apartment/studio with separate entrance. This space has a private bath and is ideal for a yoga room, studio space, gym, art studio, or separate living quarters. The guesthouse also includes a one-car garage. NOTE: The estate is comprised of multiple adjacent lots and contains a main house located at 480 W. Via Lola, a guest house at 505 Camino Sur and gardens on an adjacent unbuilt lot (481 Camino Sur).
