Life in Palm Springs comes with a lot of perks. The mountains offer a stunning backdrop for days on the golf course or seeing the sights. And 350 days of sunshine each year make it an ideal spot for indoor/outdoor living. Whether you’re searching for a second home to call your own or planning a trip to one of the town’s several resorts, Palm Springs is a true hot spot (and not just because it’s located in the desert). These seven stunning spaces showcase some of the great living this Southern California city has to offer. 

Sky high

Reaching for the sky is easy in this modern Palm Springs Pacaso. The home’s U-shaped design and oversized windows make clear blue skies the natural focal point of this elegant dining and living room. Glass doors open to expand the living space and provide access to the home’s patio and pool. With more than 50,000 pools in greater Palm Springs, the area boasts more swimming holes per capita than anywhere else in the country.

Outdoor oasis

When a drop of rain falls in Palm Springs, you’ll know about it — it’s often headline news. But you won’t feel it underneath the grand veranda which looks out on this one-acre Old Las Palmas estate. Rain or shine, this Pacaso’s covered living space offers a cool escape from the desert heat.

Modern marvel

The artistic patio of the Mid-Century Modern home frames the fairway of famed Indian Canyons Golf Course, a favorite of crooner Frank Sinatra. Palm Springs is a popular tee-time destination, with more than 100 courses to choose from.

Iconic chic 

This Palm Springs living space blurs the line between indoor and outdoor, while the home itself blurs the line between historic and contemporary. The iconic Kaufmann Desert House helped shape the Mid-Century Modern architectural aesthetic for which Palm Springs is known. Once owned by singer Barry Manilow, the 25-million-dollar home is protected as a historic site.

And not just the romantic kind — the Palm Springs area rivals the Middle East in production of the tasty fruit.
