Midcentury gem! Amazing design, beautiful view of the manicured greens over 3 tree-lined fairways from throughout. An open-plan where the kitchen, living, & family areas are one big gathering room! All three bedrooms have walls of windows providing a wide-open view of the golf course and, the distant mountains behind stands of trees. Nice-sized patio around the pool! Charming double door entry, an open air feeling-vaulted ceilings, tons of windows/light! Pristine desert view out the front. Truly a dream!

The beautiful desert and golf course frame a watercolor portrait of this charming home as a memorable keepsake. It's got all your must-haves and many of your nice-to-haves, too! A tranquil home with windows galore and charming period details like pocket doors. Vacationers come to Borrego Springs from everywhere--including S. Cal or towns with green expanses or cities splattered by plentiful rains. The beautiful yet bleak, arid terrain a, a kind of mystic, romantic venture. An oasis of peace, of repose (Fletcher Knebe). A peaceful paradise awaits at this beautiful home! It has lots of big windows that take advantage of the beautiful desert location set below picturesque mountains with views of the golf course, and there are spacious indoor and outdoor areas where families and friends can gather and spend time together. An open-plan with one big room, and this is the area where everyone tends to spend the most time. A desert retreat, with room for friends. Nestled on a quiet street, just minutes from hiking, golfing and other fun activities. No HOA fees in De Anza Golf Estates. Majestic circular drive, grand entrance (through the courtyard) and porte-cochere. Beautiful and attractive and functional hardscape. An elegantly landscaped front yard. The house is designed in such a way that main living areas and the bedrooms look out over the golf course. Savor the freshness, vividness and ingenuity of this home-original owner was developer Harrison Baker see sandiegohistory.org/ journal/1995/april/kensington/ It rocks a circular driveway and covered porte-cochère parking. A sliding glass door opens to the backyard view and pool area. The classic charm of a double door entry. For some, the view and the amount of light a place gets are deciding factors. Many homeowners want as much glass as possible. The west side master bedroom's sliding glass door opens, along a wall of windows, onto the patio and pool area. Every bedroom is brightened by a wall of windows, with glass doors that open to the swimming pool. The well-lit kitchen's view of the golf course is beautiful. Couples can cook together, while enjoying the kitchen's view which overlooks the backyard pool and the golf course. From the kitchen, a French door leads outside to the pool area. In the spring during its annual wildflower bloom, reward your guests with a beautiful view of the desert at its best-it makes the world feel tranquil and serene, but close to nature with scenery as far as the eye can see. Plenty of parking for entertaining! Borrego has many house-proud weekenders from San Diego, and seniors who grew up camping here when they were children and discovered its charms. Several owners represent a cross-section of American wealth. The De Anza Country Club's new owners have transformed it financially in terms of its balance sheet. There is a nice sweeping view of the desert sunrise and Fonts Point from the front yard. One of the alternating audios is Welcome to the Island--and is certainly apropos for a former owner was in charge of the Santa Catalina Island Company and the great-grandson of William Wrigley. Landscaping was smartly placed for when a very rare stray golf ball comes this direction. Living on a golf course one expects the occasional ball in the yard. Original owner completed 25+ subdivisions-Pasadena area-worked with experts in landscaping. The front yard view of the desert and mountains is amazing. When guests step through the double doors the entry welcomes them and as they tour their attention will be brought to the golf course. See, hear and, feel the wind breathing through the trees-amazing views. Come every Friday night year-round, returning to the city on Monday morning. Cook and bake. tend the backyard firepit, catch up on television and take the dog for long walks on the golf course early mornings or around sunset. Swim and barbecue with plenty of space and a patio overlooking the fairways with friends, other like-minded weekenders/neighbors.
