About Kate Sandman
My husband and I bought Mar'TEE'ni Dreams for our future retirement and have spent many hours renovating it and adding the touches that we would want to see in a vacation home. We love the desert because it is filled with friendly people, has sunshine year round and is a wonderful escape from Big City life. We recently purchased a second home in the neighborhood, which we are also renovating in the MidCentury style.
Kate Sandman purchased this house in 2009
Why Kate Sandman chose Rancho Mirage
Mar'TEE'ni Dreams was a tired property in need of TLC when we bought it in 2009. But we could see the potential in the large yard (although with mostly dead plants!), pool, citrus trees and with the bones of the 1962 MidCentury home that it was. The views from the garden spa are terrific -- especially at Happy Hour -- and we love watching the wild birds who frequent our newly landscaped desert garden and bird baths.
What makes this house unique
Everyone remarks on our beautiful ocotillos, which are a type of tall desert cactus which bloom in orange red flowers during the year. Our gardeners say they are the largest they have ever seen, at least 50 years old!
