Just Sold: South Palm Desert Marrakesh Country Club Golf Course Condo

 

We recently had the privilege of helping Jack, Pam and Pat sell their family desert dream home. A little about this home: Located behind the gates of the historic Marrakesh Country Club, this John Elgin Woolf designed Hollywood Regency style home highlights a color scheme in Moroccan desert inspired pink. Nestled on a quiet cul-de-sac, across the street from one of the 14 community pools, this spacious home offers stunning golf course, Chocolate and Santa Rosa Mountain views. The home features two master bedroom suites each with renovated en-suite bathrooms, walk in closets and patio access. We wish Jack, Pam and Pat, the Buyer, Alice, and her agent Mark all the best.

Just Sold: Spacious Regency Estates Home With Private Backyard Pool And Spa

We just had the privilege helping Jason and Alyssa purchase their desert dream home. A little about this home: It’s a spacious 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home featuring a large kitchen opening to a family room with fireplace, a generously sized living room with fireplace and wet barn and vaulted ceilings throughout. The master bedroom opens to the very private backyard with a pool and hot tub. Located in the very desirable, gated Regency Estates community in Palm Desert California. A great home to enjoy with family and friends. We wish Jason and Alyssa, the Sellers, Michael and Lisa, and their agent Janice all the best.
