Property Description

If ever there was a chance to become a modern part of the storied lineage of Palm Springs, this is it. El Kantara, or "The Bridge," was designed by Santa Monica based architect and six-time Academy Award nominated art director, Leland F. Fuller, AIA. Best known for designing period revival style homes for the Hollywood elite in the 1920s and 30s; Fuller crafted this cornerstone Old Las Palmas estate for Mrs. Frederick Stevens, wife of then president of the American Locomotive company. Just prior to their building the home, the Stevenses stayed at the Samarkand Persian Hotel in Santa Barbara which is believed to have inspired 328 W. Mountain View Place. Since then, the home has passed through many hands that quite literally built Palm Springs into the city it is today, whether physically or culturally. The history here is only outweighed by the architectural prominence. Nearly 14,000 interior square feet are built around a central courtyard with a glass tiled pool and spa with arresting mountain views. Walls of French doors spread throughout the home allow an effortless flow from one spectacular room to the next and easily combine indoor and outdoor spaces to capture the essence of Palm Springs and early California. The main home has five-bedroom suites, two of which are pool suites accessed through the interior courtyard. One of which is a primary suite that's better labeled a wing. The dining room and kitchen have the most splendid carved and painted ceilings, while the kitchen offers full butler's pantry, walk-in pantry, breakfast lounge, and tennis viewing area. Additional spaces include: two offices attached to either side of the master-wing, library, parlor, bar/piano lounge, formal dining, formal breakfast, wine room, safe room, succulent garden, two guest apartments, motor court, basement utility storage, garage workshop and more. The grounds of this outstanding estate are fully drought tolerant and have been crafted for eco efficiency and low maintenance requirements. There is an outstanding opportunity to make this estate a family compound, corporate retreat, or super high-earning vacation rental as home is sold turn-key furnished. **Please see video tour**
