The  guard gated hillside community of Thunderbird Heights in Rancho Mirage, California is a stunning desert retreat. The community is golf cart accessible with a tunnel under highway 111 connecting to the private  Thunderbird Country Club.

As you enter this beautiful five bedroom, 6,100 square foot single level estate from the impressive circular drive, nearly every room welcomes panoramic views that encompass the private pool, city lights, valley, and mountains for a serene ambiance.

The kitchen and living room offer a seamless transition to the indoor-outdoor dining and entertaining lifestyle.

Enriched with abundant natural light, this lovely home has three ensuite bedrooms and an attached private two bedroom guest area.

The home was built in 1968 and renovated bathrooms capture the appeal of a mid-century desert home.

A detached sun room with two walls of glass sliders open to maximize the spanning mountain views and pool oasis, and includes an enclosed movie-media theater room with an elevated seating area and surround sound.

Outdoor features include manicured grounds surrounding a glistening pool and spa, built-in-babecue island, two fire pits, and multiple seating areas.
