VINTAGE LA QUINTA COVE SPANISH REVIVAL "CASITA" $349,900
Today, locals sometimes refer to"Mother In Law" cottages as "Casitas," but when used in reference to the very first homes built here it has an entirely different meaning.
Author Maggie Gordon described these rarely available vintage homes as: "Romantic and charming, very desirable, their curb appeal inviting and mysterious. Owners are captivated by their casitas which exude the same charming, modest, unpretentious, timeless style of the 30's and 40's." The current owner describes it as his "Jewel in the Gem of The Desert."
It'll need some polish, but in the end you will have the satisfaction of owning a very rare and unique piece of La Quinta history. The panoramic mountain views are priceless! Upgrade if you must, but you might want to leave the 3 panel doors, arched tile shower, wood accents and kitchen cabinetry as they are.
You're not starting from scratch either. Seller says you are connected to SoCal Gas, the deep blue pool was recently resurfaced and the electrical box upgraded.
Square footage is from public records, but the home may be larger than recorded. Buyer to verify all information and determine suitability of property for any purpose.
40353 Sugarbush Ct Palm Desert 3 Beds/ 2 Baths 1712 Sf Ft Pool $268,500 CASH
From the excellent curb appeal and exterior condition you would never dream this home was a fixer. Colorful desert landscaping was recently installed. The huge backyard features a fenced pool, neatly manicured lawn, and trellised patio. The interior has challenges, but for the right buyer with the right set of skills this home could be a showcase. You enter to a formal dining room with palatial ceilings. Light streams in from transom windows. Beyond is a tiled private trellised patio with potential as an atrium or room addition. The living room features a corner fire place right next to a cozy sunken nook which would make an excellent study. The kitchen and baths need work, but refrigerator, washer/dryer and Energy Star HVAC look brand spankin' new. Off the kitchen is a bay window breakfast nook with pool view. Sliding glass doors lead from the family room to the rear patio and yard beyond. Recessed lighting, lots of cabinet and storage space. Yep. Lots of potential here.

"...Met with Lance and from the 1st hour he was all over the paperwork, the process that will happen and making us feel like we were his priority. The house sold within 10 days and the escrow went beyond smooth. There is only one person for our future purchases. Lance Frank!"
"... Throughout the process Lance was very responsive, obtained answers to all our questions, and enabled us to close in only a couple weeks time. He also attended the inspection so we didn't have to fly back in to town. Lance was very knowledgeable and helpful through the whole process, thorough and trustworthy so we did most things electronically from our main home."
