With a massive homesite that is complemented by mature trees and plantings, and a sprawling residence that was stripped to the studs and completely rebuilt, this spectacular Thunderbird Heights estate is better than new in Rancho Mirage. Two glass and steel entry gates open to reveal a circular motorcourt leading to separate 2-car garages and the single-level home, which encompasses approximately 5,317 square feet, 4 ensuite bedrooms and 5 baths. Dramatic mountain, valley and city-light views are enjoyed both indoors and out, with numerous picture windows, retractable glass doors, and pivoting interior glass doors creating a light and fresh vibe.

 

A double-door entry leads to an enormous great room with high ceiling, a floating linear fireplace and a dining area. Concrete tile, wide hallways, contemporary lighting fixtures and HDTVs are featured throughout. Joining the rear patio via a pass-thru window, the cutting-edge kitchen displays quartz countertops, a breakfast room, island, coffee bar, glossy self-closing cabinetry, and state-of-the-art Bosch appliances including 2 dishwashers, 1 microwaves, 1 steam oven, a built-in refrigerator and a 5-burner cooktop. An office, temperature-controlled wine room and a fully appointed laundry room are also featured. Stunning views distinguish an oversized master suite with a sleek fireplace, sitting area, dry sauna, stand- alone tub, illuminated mirrors, a 2-station vanity, multi-head shower with rain feature, and 2 walk-in closets with custom organizers. Completely refinished, a pool and spa with spillway between is surrounded by spacious sun and shade patios, a lush lawn and travertine decking.

 

Guard-gated Thunderbird Heights is one of the most exclusive neighborhoods within Rancho Mirage. Known as the Playground of the Presidents, the historic hillside enclave is across the street from the Thunderbird Country Club and golf course, complete with private access to all of its amenities.
