THIS luxurious and private estate is the ULTIMATE property in the heart of the Movie Colony Neighborhood. Located just a few blocks from the downtown center of Palm Springs, Ruth Hardy Park, five star restaurants, cafes, the famous Spa Casino and the historic O'Donnell Country Club are all within an easy walking distance.

Formerly owned by Dale Wassermann who wrote "One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest," this luxury estate is crazy good! If you’re looking for a large private property, luscious greenery, and luxuriously appointed, this private Movie Colony Neighborhood estate is for you.

Lavish layout includes living room, dining room, and step-down media room. There’s not only a large modern kitchen, but also a butler’s pantry, replete with a bar and 2 wine refrigerators.
Each of the 7 bedrooms are tastefully decorated. Full sets of fluffy bath towels and pool towels are provided leaving you with room in your suitcase for more poolside fashion. The stunning master bath shines with polished marble, his and her walk-in closet, dual sinks, fireplace and Jacuzzi tub.

The landscaped exterior with its jaw-dropping waterfall, pristine pool, and private sunning area make being out of doors a magnificent experience. A covered patio runs the length of the house providing shade and a breeze from 2 exterior-ceiling mounted fans. Features include Chaise lounges, conversation corners, and dining tables that collectively serve up to 20 guests. And, the separate Casita makes it easy to vacation together, yet provide “alone” time, too.

Nearby Ruth Hardy Park affords public tennis courts, basketball courts, children’s play area, shaded picnic areas and walking paths.
