Arthur Elrod’s Escape - 4Br - Sleeps 8

8 guests · 4 bedrooms · 4.5 bathrooms
Arthur Elrod’s Escape defines the magic of Palm Springs during Hollywood’s Golden Age. The spectacular desert oasis was conceived and styled by the legendary designer, as his own personal retreat. So much of the villa’s original charm has been mindfully preserved, with subtle contemporary touches added to enhance your stay. Centrally located, you’ll find the best of Palm Springs nearby, while tall hedgerows provide the privacy you crave for a blissful getaway. Step out onto the sunny tiled terrace and feel your worries melt away. A large reflective pool sparkles in the sunlight while your ears are filled with the sounds of a trickling fountain and lush garden flora rustling in the breeze. Classic wrought-iron deck furniture covered in canary yellow cushions are sheltered under an expansive canopy. Grill fresh ingredients on the barbecue to enjoy around an elegant al fresco table. Inside, the central rooms are adorned with colorful and ornate Regency furnishings. The living room is spacious and ideal for entertaining: its long, wraparound sofa providing ample seating. For more intimate gatherings, a smaller entertaining room is found off the living room, complete with sunken bar and vintage cocktail accessories. Prepare gourmet feasts in the fully-equipped kitchen and serve them in the dining room, where a fireplace and chandelier create a grand environment. The quaint breakfast room features a table for four and looks out to the tropical bamboo garden. Each of the home’s four, lavishly decorated bedrooms are completely unique and unforgettable. In the Master bedroom, powder blue walls display bamboo illustrations. It boasts two full beds pushed together under an original bedframe, a dressing room and spacious en-suite. The Library Room has two vintage Twin beds, a built-in desk, en-suite and sliding glass doors that open directly out to the deck. The Blue Room has a full bed with a view of the bamboo garden. The final room houses a lovely canary yellow canopy bed. Walk or drive to Palm Canyon Drive, where you’ll find upscale shops, restaurants, galleries and nightlife. There’s no better way to soak in vistas of the Coachella Valley than by teeing off at one of the area’s 80 golf courses. Hikers will discover trails of all levels in the surrounding national parks.  Copyright © Luxury Retreats. All rights reserved. The City of Palm Springs ID# 1729...
