An estate in one of Palm Springs’ most exclusive communities is now on the market. Located at 80780 Vista Bonita Trail in the highly sought-after La Quinta Polo Estates gated community, the home is represented by Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties and has been listed for $3,499,999.
Named “Casa Del Sueno,” which directly translates to “House of the Dream,” the property is within an enclave of 50 estates, all which are divided into massive 2-acre lots. “The size of this property is just one aspect of the home that make it so intriguing. Having a home on 2 acres of land is absolutely unheard of in the desert,” said Laura Lapides, who is representing the estate.
Casa Del Sueno takes advantage of its sprawling grounds with 5,630 square feet of livable space and an additional 4,000 square feet of outdoor living and entertainment areas. The home features five bedrooms, seven baths, three casitas and a long drive to an ornate iron-gated motor court with a three-car garage and additional parking for 10 cars.
The hand-carved wood main gate leads to a grand courtyard with an oversized custom stone water feature, exposed stone columns and arches. To one side you will find an outdoor living room with a custom stone fireplace, dining area and a pool table play area.
Enjoying the same courtyard view is the first casita, which features a media room with an oversized fireplace and large wet bar. Attached is a guest suite with its own bath, steam shower and private patio space.
The interior of the home features Spanish and Mediterranean-inspired design, exposed carved beams, hardwood and limestone flooring, wrought iron designs and authentic wood features embedded in nearly every room of the house.
The foyer of the main house opens to a formal living and dining area and great room, showcasing a massive carved stone fireplace and floor-to-ceiling French doors and windows. Just beyond the great room is an oversized gourmet kitchen with custom wood cabinets, genuine granite countertops, double Viking stainless-steel stove, cabinet-faced appliances, including double Sub-Zero refrigerator freezers, two dishwashers and two U-line refrigerator drawers, located on the large gathering island with a second sink. The crowning touch is a stunning wrought-iron hanging pot rack that acts a beautiful centerpiece. Attached you will find the butler’s pantry equipped with a beverage refrigerator and ice maker.
The primary suite showcases wood-framed windows with plantation shutters overlooking the backyard, a door leading to a private covered patio and built-in lounger and seating area. The lounge leads to the primary bathroom and wardrobe room with a jeweled chandelier and wood and mirrored cabinets. The double spa tub overlooks the courtyard.
The stunning details and architecture of the main house is complemented by an equally mesmerizing resort-style backyard, featuring meticulously groomed landscaping, rolling lawn, orchard, grape arbor, raised vegetable garden and a sparkling custom pool and raised spa. Residents can enjoy a built-in outdoor kitchen with a double bar, as well as a picturesque outdoor patio and pergola featuring natural wood beams draped with vines.
Just steps beyond the pool is a second expansive guest casita that is detached and offers a spacious outdoor lounge area by the pool and an oversized stone fireplace. The casita includes two guest rooms with private baths and a built-in wet bar. There is also a third detached casita with a private bath and entry from motor court.
“This estate truly is a well-kept secret in Palm Springs,” Lapides said. “This is a home for anyone who not only loves to entertain, but who appreciates its fine craftsmanship and incredible attention to detail.”
The grounds are zoned equestrian, although the majority of residents do not keep horses on their properties. The community is next to two iconic polo facilities — the Eldorado Polo Club and the Empire Polo Club — and a number of private golf and country clubs, including the Hideaway Golf Club, the Madison Club and Mountain View Country Club.
