This gated compound is set on 20 acres, private yet close to the Village of La Quinta with golf, tennis, and equestrian activities just a few minutes away. The main home underwent a major and spectacular rebuild in the last couple of years. Attached are a charming guest wing and a caretaker's casita. The home is approached through a gated entrance off a quiet road. A long, shady drive with Deglet date groves on either side opens to a generous, granite paver courtyard and the grand, 8612+- SF home which includes 7+ bedrooms, upstairs media room and many porches accessed off living spaces and bedrooms for indoor/outdoor living. A gracious melding of European formality relaxed with Old California aesthetic creates a warm and welcoming home. The owners combined their passion for design with their love of horses and polo and put their energies into overseeing the construction of this immaculately crafted home. Beautifully designed to separate the various wings with grand foyer and hallways. Long views of 60' x 30' salt water pool and the mountains beyond. Deeded water rights/low taxes in Ag reserve. Equestrian cross country course, stick/ball polo field, etc. See Video www.RanchoLaSerena.com.
