Imagine yourself with a cocktail in hand on a mellow desert eve, as the sun melts away for the day behind the San Jacinto Mountains, lounging by a pool that was likely enjoyed once-upon-a-time by A-listers like Sean Connery and Jill St. John. Perhaps the neighborhood where you’re soaking up the desert's magical energy, was once the setting of a Golden Age film. In Palm Springs, this is a realistic scenario. Since 1915, the desert's austere beauty has attracted all walks of life, including Hollywood legends, worldly artists, and, of course, those of us who resonate with the carefree vibe and endless swank modernism found in this glamorous Sonoran Desert city.
Palm Springs is recognized for stylish hotels, spas, championship golf courses, and many fine examples of mid-century modern architecture. Truly, what this Coachella Valley paradise is best known for, are the legendary neighborhoods found in Palm Springs real estate. Whether you wish to own a piece of iconic history, a high-end desert escape, or a cozy condo nestled in the Valley, the Palm Spring lifestyle will leave you golden in more than just one way.
