Property Description

''One More Hour Of Sunshine Than Palm Springs'', touted early marketing remarks during the continuing creation of Rancho Mirage homes in the 50's and 60's. As you walk through this 1957, Art Linkletter designed property, you can't help but feel as if you are entering a time capsule. Art Linkletter, a former TV and radio celebrity, friend to such people as Walt Disney, Ronald Reagan and Phyllis Diller, and all around philanthropist, was one of the developers of ''El Rancho Mirage'', along side Walter Morgan who played the Wizard in The Wizard Of Oz, and Major A. Ronald Button. During the development era of ''El Rancho Mirage'', Art Linkletter and partners were designing and building homes such as this one, amongst many of the greatest architects and builders of that time. Wexler, Eichler, Alexander, Palmer and Krisel, just to name a few, all with their own distinctive style. This home, distinctive in its own right with pitched roof, low slope and organic lines, still displays the original Art Deco inspired block fireplace, beamed ceilings, and expansive walls of windows, showcasing the beautiful Western landscape. Not having been on the market in decades, this Mid-Century gem sits on just under 12,000sqft of land equipped with a large pool and spa, plenty of room to build an ADU or casita, and amazing, panoramic mountain views from almost any angle. This is desert living at its best, and your chance to own a piece of Rancho Mirage history.
