About 252 Ridge Road

One of the most iconic estates in the entire Palm Springs Valley, ''Bellosguardo',' was begun in1924. The estate has not changed hands in close to 45 years! Nestled on more than 28 acres of magical land, this one-of-a-kind World Class estate sits at the base of Mt. San Jacinto in a hidden canyon, yet minutes to downtown Palm Springs. The 7 bedroom, 10 baths multi-structure compound features the main house plus 4 additional individual villas. Main house contains an open living room, chefs kitchen and butler's pantry as well as a secret 2000+bottle wine cellar. The formal dining room with fireplace and wet-bar can seat 32 comfortably. The master suite features a private patio, outdoor shower, dramatic dressing area, his/hers closets, 2 home offices and safe room. The guest suites offer natural rock walls and authentic architectural elements. Famed modernist architect Albert Frey designed ''The Rock House'' villa of the estate, which features a 2-room suite with walls of glass, fireplace, hand-carved Balinese garden doors, claw-foot tub, rock shower and meditation garden. Furnishings included with exceptions. . The grounds are the show with acres of entertainment areas set among spectacular rock formations and featuring a natural amphitheater with stage, swimming ponds, waterfall and hiking trails on the property itself. And at night the setting will leave you breathless. There is simply no home like this anywhere.
