Photos and Description of this 10 bedroom holiday estate in Palm Desert - La Casa Azzura
La Casa Azzura - Luxury Compound with 360 Desert Views
An absolutely exquisite private compound situated in the hills of Mountain Center above central Palm Desert and neighboring Palm Springs. The private 10 bedroom estate offers sweeping panoramic views of the Coachella Valley. Complete privacy is afforded within a gated compound with nearly 11,000 square feet of living space amid four acres of land; a main house, guest house, tennis court, tennis house, pool, spa, magnificent views, and immaculately maintained grounds, this retreat will take your breath away.
La Casa Azzurra sits “on top of the world” at an altitude of 3,000 ft, with 360 degree views as far as the eye can see. The estate offers 4 acres of peaceful desert setting with unique rock formations, providing a sanctuary for a wide variety of flora and fauna. Nestled between the San Jacinto National Monument and the Big Horn National Preserve, the property overlooks the Coachella valley, the Chocolate Mountains, Joshua Tree National Park, and three of Southern California’s highest peaks – San Jacinto, San Gorgonio and Santa Rosa – with a myriad of hiking, biking and equestrian trails that lead into the surrounding mountains, including the Pacific Crest trail.
The area is protected from any future development and benefits from a microclimate with average temperatures that are 13 degrees cooler than the desert floor. The property is secured within the gates of Royal Carrizo, a development of only 21 homes separated by a quarter of a mile between them, offering utmost privacy and tranquility. The main house and two guest houses have magnificent views from every room, with 11,000 square feet of living space inspired by different cultures, 10 bedrooms/bathrooms, a movie room, tennis court, pool & spa and immaculately maintained landscaping.
