The allure of Palm Springs
The Villa Boutique Living offers lock- and- leave lifestyle, great location — and a place to soak in the sun
For decades, Palm Springs has been a popular real estate investment choice for Canadian snowbirds seeking refuge from chilly Canadian winters.
More recently, however, the desert resort city in the heart of California’s Coachella Valley has become known as a hot spot for both young and old, thanks in part to the proliferation of festivals, conventions and international events, including the Palm Springs International Film Festival and the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
“These new events are drawing a broader range people to Palm Springs and as a result, we’re seeing a much more diverse group of homebuyers than we’ve had historically,” observes Chris Gray, president of Strategic Sales and Marketing, which is currently selling homes in The Villas Boutique Living development built by Northwood- Palm Springs LLC in the south Palm Springs area. “They range from first- time local buyers to buyers from all over Southern California, the Pacific Northwest, the East Coast and Canada looking for vacation property.”
A collection of one- and twobedroom boutique residences at 1700 South Araby Drive, The Villa Boutique Living boasts spectacular views of the picturesque Coachella Valley, San Jacinto and Santa Rosa Mountains. It is conveniently located a short drive from historic downtown Palm Springs, where one can explore boutique shops, art galleries and museums, while soaking up the sunshine or dining outdoors among stunning desert scenery. Hiking and biking trails, plus popular golf courses, are also nearby.
In addition to its lock- andleave lifestyle and enviable location, The Villa Boutique Living homes offer numerous upscale and thoughtful amenities; among them — vaulted ceilings, central heat and air conditioning plus ceiling fans, decorator- selected vinyl plank flooring in entryways, kitchens, living rooms and bathrooms. Kitchens feature gas range/ ovens, granite countertops and designer cabinet fronts. Buyers can choose from sparkling white- on- white or stainless steel appliance packages. This controlled- access community includes two dazzling pools, two Jacuzzis, lush landscaping and covered parking.
Residences range from 710 to 881 square feet and are priced from $ 144,990 US for a onebedroom and from $ 189,152 US for two- bedroom home. Gray notes the current pricing is available through Oct. 19, when it is expected to increase.
