Thinking of Moving to Palm Springs? The Best Neighborhoods Palm Springs Has to Offer

Thinking of moving to Palm Springs? People are always talking about the many and desirable Palm Springs neighborhoods, but where are they? Let’s take a time out and find out where the best neighborhoods Palm Springs has to offer are!

My name is Neal Nussbaum and my colleague Stephen and I are going to take you through a tour of some of Palm Springs best neighborhoods. Palm Springs has many different areas with homes ranging from our well-known mid century architecture to more moderately priced homes all the way up to upscale luxury properties and the locations vary. We think of Palm Springs as three different areas, Palm Springs, north, Palm Springs, central and Palm Springs South. All three areas have different pluses and minuses, so let’s get started. 

Desert park estates: it’s a neighborhood made up of a diverse mix of housing styles, and building started here in the 1950’s and it continues today. This neighborhood also contains many mid century type homes and the home prices here range from the 350,000 price range all the way up to a million to a million and a half dollars.

Old Las Palmas, some of Palm Springs most stately homes and grand estates are here. Many of these were built by Hollywood movie producers and movie stars. One famous home here is Rancho Autry, former residents of America’s favorite singing cowboy gene Autry. Most of these homes are surrounded by lush landscaping with historical architectural splendor. Old Las Palmas is located between the San Jacinto mountain and downtown Palm Springs. Price ranges on these homes start a little over a million and go up as high as 20 million. 

Ruth Hardy park: this area is fairly close to the desert regional hospital complex. This area has a mix of small homes plus larger fence to States. And, of course the popular Ruth Hardy park is in the neighborhood as well. One home here was owned by Lucille ball and Desi Arnaz. Homes in this neighborhood range from about 500,000 all the way up to between two to $3 million as senior Palm Springs. This is a 450 acre plan community, but the Jack Nicholas golf course and the asina lounge and grill. These are all newer, larger homes having been built in the past few years. Pacino homes are noted for their great blend of desert views and architectural styles. Most homes have their own pool and some have to see this. The scene is close to the Palm Springs airport but has little airport noise prices ranging from 600,000 up to about a million 0.2. 

Andres Hills is located in the South part of Palm Springs in the Indian canyons. These are some of the newest homes in the South Palm Springs area. It’s a quiet and peaceful area and many of the homes have spectacular mountain views. The prices range from around 800,000 all the way up to $8 million. Some of the condos, however, are less expensive. 

The Movie Colony, along with old Las Palmas, the Movie Colony was also named for all the movie stars, producers and directors that have owned and still own homes today in this neighborhood. Some of these homes and gated property state back to the 1930s. Frank Sinatra’s first Palm Springs home was called twin Palms. It was designed by desert architect E Stuart Williams. Homes here in the Palm Springs movie colony range from about 1 million up to 5 million.

The Historic Tennis Club: area hugging the mountains just West of downtown Palm Springs. This area is also a mix of many Palm Springs small boutique hotels and it’s great if you want to be close to downtown Palm Springs. 

Deepwell prime Palm Springs neighborhood in Palm Springs third most important celebrity neighborhood. It has some larger homes and many with lush landscaping and Palm trees. The home behind me was once owned by film and TV legend, Loretta young. Deepwell is close to fine dining and shopping and is almost Winfrey most of the time. Many of these homes have been recently upgraded over the last few years. Price ranges here from 500,000 up to about 2 million

Park Andreyes, Bella Monte, Monte Sereno – these are all newer, larger homes in new neighborhoods in South Palm Springs. These neighborhoods have a mix of full time and part time residents. Homes in these neighborhoods, but bugger trail range from 800,000 all the way up to three to $4 million. 

The warm sands neighborhood is located just East of downtown Palm Springs. This area is a diverse mix of architectural styles including homes and condos and also boutique small hotels. Most of the boutique hotels that were originally built still exist, although the names of tank. Prices range here from the mid five hundreds up to about 2 million. 

The Mesa is located South of downtown Palm Springs and it’s right up next to the mountains. It’s also a favorite area for celebrities and no two homes in the Mesa are exactly alike. It’s a great area that really overlooks all the Palm Springs. Sonny bono of Sonny and Cher fame used to live in a home here. Sonny was also the former mayor of Palm Springs and then later our local Congressman. These homes in the Mesa had great views and they range from $750,000 all the way up to $30 million.

Los Palmas is  located between old Las Palmas and the San Jacinto mountain. There are many homes in this neighborhood and many of these were built in the 1950s and 1960s and many are now being upgraded. Many of the homes in this neighborhood sell from about 500,000 all the way up to about $3 million.

Indian canyons is home to one a Palm Springs oldest and well known golf courses, the Indian tannins golf course. It’s also near the smoke tree stables and is the gateway to the Indian canyons on the Southeast side of Palm Springs. Many of these homes have been recently renovated and are contemporary and design ranging from about 700,000 up to about 3 million. 

The racket club, known as the racket club, is actually the North gateway to Palm Springs. It runs very close to the old pony expressway into Palm Springs. This historic neighborhood takes its name from the racquet club hotel and resort, which was founded by Charles Farrell and the actor Ralph Bellamy. This home has a wide variety of architectural styles and the prices range from around 400,000 all the way up to $3 million. 

Chino Canyon and little Tuscany is West of the racket club and fairly close to the Palm Springs aerial tramway. It’s a mixture of large homes and different architectural styles. Many of these homes have large boulders and they’re incorporated into the landscape. The King of rock and roll, Elvis Presley loved Palm Springs and Palm Springs loved Elvis and incidentally, Elvis bought this home from Dick McDonald, one of the brothers that founded the McDonald’s hamburger chain. Homes here in Chino Canyon and little Tuscany ranged from about 500,000 all the way up to about $3 million.

#StayHomePalmSprings: How to Create Functional Spaces in Your Home During the Coronavirus Outbreak

How To Create Functional Space At Home During the Coronavirus

Since the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), many of us are spending a lot more time at home. We’re all being called upon to avoid public spaces and practice social distancing to help slow the spread of this infectious disease. While it can be understandably challenging, there are ways you can modify your home and your lifestyle to make the best of this difficult situation.

Here are a few tips for creating comfortable and functional spaces within your home for work, school, and fitness. We also share some of our favorite ways to stay connected as a community, because we’re all in this together … and no one should face these trying times alone. 

Begin with the Basics 

A basic home emergency preparedness kit is a great addition to any home, even under normal circumstances. It should include items like water, non-perishable food, a flashlight, first aid kit, and other essentials you would need should you temporarily lose access to food, water, or electricity.

Fortunately, authorities don’t anticipate any serious interruptions to utilities or the food supply during this outbreak. However, it may be a good time to start gathering your emergency basics in a designated location, so you’ll be prepared now-—and in the future—should your family ever need them.

Working From Home

Many employees are being asked to work remotely. If you’re transitioning to a home office for the first time, it’s important to create a designated space for work … so it doesn’t creep into your home life, and vice versa. If you live in a small condominium or apartment, this may feel impossible. But try to find a quiet corner where you can set up a desk and comfortable chair. The simple act of separating your home and work spaces can help you focus during work hours and “turn off” at the end of the day.

Of course, if you have children who are home with you all day (given many schools and daycares are now closed), separating your home and work life will be more difficult. Unless you have a partner who can serve as the primary caregiver, you will need to help manage the needs of your children while juggling work and virtual meetings.

If both parents are working from home, try alternating shifts, so you each have a designated time to work and to parent. If that’s not an option, experts recommend creating a schedule for your children, so they know when you’re available to play, and when you need to work.1 A red stop sign on the door can help remind them when you shouldn’t be disturbed. And for young children, blocking off a specific time each day for them to nap or have independent screen time can give you a window to schedule conference calls or work uninterrupted.

Homeschooling Your Children

Many parents with school-aged children will be taking on a new challenge: homeschooling. Similar to a home office, designating a space for learning activities can help your child transition between play and school. If you’re working from home, the homeschooling area would ideally be located near your workspace, so you can offer assistance and answer questions, as needed.

If possible, dedicate a desk or table where your child’s work can be spread out—and left out when they break for meals and snacks. Position supplies and materials nearby so they are independently accessible, and place a trash can and recycling bin within reach for easy cleanup. A washable, plastic tablecloth can help transition an academic space into an arts and crafts area. 

 If the weather is nice, try studying outside! A porch swing is a perfect spot for reading, and gardening in the backyard is a great addition to any science curriculum.

In addition to creating an academic learning environment, find age-appropriate opportunities for your children to help with household chores and meal preparation. Homeschooling advocates emphasize the importance of developing life skills alongside academic ones.2 And with more meals and activities taking place at home, there will be ample opportunity for every family member to pitch in and help.

Staying Fit

With gyms closed and team sports canceled, it can be tempting to sit on the sofa and binge Netflix. However, maintaining the physical health and mental wellness of you and your family is crucial right now. Implementing a regular exercise routine at home can help with both.

If you live in a community where you can safely exercise outdoors while maintaining the recommended distance between you and other residents, try to get out as much as possible. If the weather is nice, go for family walks, jogs, or bike rides.

Can’t get outside? Fortunately, you don’t need a home gym or fancy exercise equipment to stay fit. Look for a suitable space in your home, garage, or basement where you can comfortably move—you’ll probably need at least a 6’ x 6’ area for each person. Many cardio and strength training exercises require little (or no) equipment, including jumping jacks, lunges, and pushups.

And if you prefer a guided workout, search for free exercise videos on YouTube—there are even options specifically geared towards kids—or try one of the many fitness apps available.

Socializing From a Distance

Even though we’re all being called upon to practice “social distancing” right now, there are still ways to stay safely connected to our communities and our extended families. Picking up the phone is a great place to start. Make an effort to reach out to neighbors and loved ones who live alone and may be feeling particularly isolated right now.

And while parties and playdates may be prohibited, modern technology offers countless ways to organize networked gatherings with family and friends. Try using group video conferencing tools like Google Hangouts and Zoom to facilitate a virtual happy hour or book club. Host a Netflix Party to watch (and chat about) movies with friends. Or plan a virtual game night and challenge your pals to a round of Psych or Yahtzee.

There are safe ways to connect offline, too. Rediscover the lost art of letter writing. Drop off groceries on an elderly neighbor’s porch. Or organize a neighborhood “chalk walk,” where children use sidewalk chalk to decorate their driveways and then head out for a stroll to view their friends’ artwork.

Of course, there’s one group of people who you can still socialize with freely—those who reside in your home. Family dinners are back, siblings are reconnecting, and many of us have been given the gift of time, with commutes, activities, and obligations eliminated. In fact, some families are finding that this crisis has brought them closer than ever. 

YOU ARE NOT ALONE 

Even with all of the tools and technology available to keep us connected, many of us are still feeling stressed, scared, and isolated. However, you can rest assured that you are not alone. We’re not only here to help you buy and sell real estate. We want to be a resource to our clients and community through good times and bad. If you and your family are in need of assistance, please reach out and let us know how we can help.
