About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 4

Discover the desert close up from this custom glass and steel 2BR 2.5BA, 2,000-square-foot house in the sand. This ultramodern design by Los Angeles architect Richard Orne and designer Susan Hancock puts you at one with the dunes, mountains, and stars. The home sleeps 4 and sits on 10 acres of native desert, shielded by the Indianhead Peak of the San Ysidro Mountains. Anza-Borrego Desert State Park is your backyard. Revel in it.


Nearly every room of this glass house opens on both sides to patios overlooking the untamed desert. Panoramic vistas thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows greet you at every turn. With the supremely private location, you can hardly see the neighbors on the horizon. Here, surrounded by the mountains, you’ll experience ever-changing light, deep silence, and a sense of privacy you’d never expect from a glass house.

The sleek, simple interior design always turns you toward the terrain. Even mundane tasks like doing dishes at the vast island in the kitchen take on a meditative quality. Dinner is a gorgeous affair whether you sit inside or barbecue on the patio, where the darkness lets the night sky shine. The high-end furnishings and amenities are additions to the great design. Every detail has been thought out with excellence in mind.

Two bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms grant you generous space and privacy. Clever storage spaces are tucked in hallways, and the bathrooms are shielded in more modest tile rooms. You’ll love discovering all of the beautiful design secrets of this transparent oasis. This is a $1.2M home, and in Borrego, that's a rare find. This is a rare property for anyone to have the chance to stay!

Note: There is now a pool and hot tub ready for your use! The pool features a 12-inch-deep reef section that drops into the 5-foot-deep end. This property is not suitable for children under 16.

Your total includes all necessary utility fees during the summer months and pool heating during the winter months.


This desert hideaway is surrounded by 600,000 acres of state park land known as the Anzo-Borrego, with hiking trails, mountain vistas, and an impressive collection of wildlife, including the town's namesake animal, the bighorn sheep ("borrego" in Spanish).

Protected by the Dark Sky Ordinance, Borrego Springs is a haven for stargazers. At night, your sweeping vistas will give way to a twinkling sky.

Venture into downtown Borrego Springs, just 13 minutes away, for access to an array of restaurants and shopping.

We wanted to experience the desert in a unique way and this home did not disappoint. The views are incredible, and the comfort in the house was marvelous. The new pool/hot tub is amazing. Really everything was great.

Reviewer Comments:

The house was lovely and very well equipped with beautiful pool. Turnkey Management was just the opposite. We first booked another home in January. Shortly before our visit in April we were told the property was unavailable. Three alternates we offered, two of which were the same property. There were zero instructions left in the home for anything. They would not have even known if we were there. The office in downtown Borrego said open from 10 to 4. No one was there for the week and no one returned telephone calls. There was a lot more but with limited space let's just say they were the worst management company we have ever dealt with and we have dealt with many.
