12Total Baths

Situated within the prestigious enclave famously known as Movie Colony, this Mid-Century modern (1966) home is the largest of its kind in Palm Springs. Designed by modernist architectural pioneer Howard Lapham (Thunderbird Country Club, Chi Chi Nightclub, Cook House), the nine-bedroom, twelve-bath home draws inspiration from the flat desert landscape and architectural elements from late 1950s/early 1960s Desert Modernism. Entirely gated and walled for utmost seclusion and privacy, a dramatic entry leads to a set of double-height, mayan-inspired doors leading you into the main living areas. Once inside, one begins to get a true sense of the massive scale in which almost 10,000sf is laid out in a single level with soaring ceilings through the entire residence.

In the living room, measuring 60x24 feet with 13’6” ft ceilings, you are surrounded by floor-to-ceiling glass sliders which open the massive space to the mountain views and expansive pool and yard. Modern finishes are throughout, including original poured terrazzo floors, cooling automatic sun shades and subtle Leviton lighting. Hosting guests is seamless with a professional chef’s kitchen built for catering, indoor pool, spacious main living room, formal and informal dining spaces and a detached two-bedroom guesthouse.

Quiet outdoor spaces provide plenty of shade beside a 50-foot long pool surrounded by mature trees and a large lawn, private covered patio, Koi pond, citrus grove, misting system, water features and West-facing mountain views. The best part, you are just minutes from Downtown and Uptown Palm Springs. 650 Tachevah Drive provides exquisite desert living in one of the most renowned locations of Palm Springs.
