McClatchy Estate: Enter through the impressive gates onto a private road leading to this custom estate home nestled at the end of the private cul-de-sac across from the Tamarisk Country Club. This exceptional compound with two residences on prime lots was originally commissioned by Bernard Kaplan in 1980 and built by Big Sioux Development with interiors designed by Steve Chase. Subsequently, the home was sold to newspaper tycoon William McClatchy, newspaper baron of the second-largest U.S newspaper group in the country. The home was recently renovated and has gone through major changes since 1980. The home is situated on three parcels of property close to 1.5 acres of Rancho Mirage with south-facing mountain views adjacent to land owned by the Annenberg Estate. The main house is just over 4,005 square feet with newly refreshed interiors with majestic high ceilings throughout the home, recessed lighting, ledger stone accented walls, and polished travertine 18 x 18 tile flooring. The eat-in gourmet kitchen opens onto the patio for catering and is next to a formal dining room. The combo living-family room is L-shaped and has a fireplace, both facing the outdoor pool and the mountain views. The home has four large bedrooms each with an en-suite private bath; the primary bedroom has dual baths. The home has a total of five bathrooms. The second residence is a two-bedroom two baths 1,377 square foot casita with a kitchenette, washer-dryer, and a fireplace in the main living room, including views of the sculpture garden and mountains with a private patio. The primary home features a step-down pool off the family room and a private spa off the main-secondary bedroom, all securely monitored with a newly installed security camera system. The adjacent property was a citrus orchard and is currently not developed, however, it remains part of the estate grounds to develop your multiple auto garages or tennis courts. New lawn and desert landscaping along with an irrigation system has been installed at all the major garden focal points. The seller has facilitated the parcel merger required to open up the available lots to new construction.
