Located at 613 Indian Cove in Palm Desert, California, this palatial residence—named "Casbah Cove"—was constructed over four years by a "cutting-edge architectural team," in collaboration with a group of Moroccan craftsmen.
Presently up for grabs for $25 million, the four-bedroom, seven-bath home is poised on a hilltop on the canyon side of the gated Bighorn Golf Community. Enveloped by panoramic views of frosted mountains and valleys, the enviable estate features 16,800 square feet total of indoor and outdoor living space. Showcasing handcrafted wood, stone, plaster, and brass detailing—not to mention thousands of authentic tiles and Siberian oak floors—the property evokes an exotic beauty tinged with modernity.
Phenomenal 30-foot by 40-foot retractable glass ceilings shelter the courtyard, while a posh hammam spa with an organic spa bed, a fireplace, full-sized massage tables, and an expansive steam room and bath surround a well-manicured atrium complete with a fountain. Also on the grounds sit a 75-foot black granite-lined infinity saltwater lap pool, as well as a 40-foot round reverse infinity-edge swimming pool. There's also a plush hookah room that can accommodate up to 20, featuring glass doors that lead to a 20-foot movie screen set against a mountainside backdrop; an elevator whose inner walls are splendidly lined with mother-of-pearl; nine built-in flatscreen televisions; a temperature-controlled wine cellar; and a three-car, two-golf-cart garage.
The Cove's master suite—located steps from the lap pool—is accompanied by a spa-like, white marble bath, equipped with a Moroccan soaking tub. Apart from the three outdoor dining spots—which can fit up to 200 guests—the home's formal dining space emulates a Moroccan tent, with romantic draped ceilings and French doors leading to a terrace.
As for guest accommodations, two well-appointed suites share a sitting room with a fireplace and outdoor balcony, while a detached guesthouse—complete with a private entrance and patio—features a large bedroom, sitting space, morning bar, and opulent bath.
