Swaying palms, outstanding Modern Desert architecture, flawless mid-century decor and a shimmering pool: Sanctuary truly lives up to its name. One of 55 houses on the Register of Historic Resources in the city of Rancho Mirage, the sleek three-bedroom home dates to 1960 and was designed by well-known architect Donald Wexler. Though it’s kept its mid-century cool, the property has been carefully updated with the latest luxuries.

Sanctuary opens to a generous backyard with shaded lounging and dining areas and a sunny patio lined with chaise longues and cheery yellow umbrellas. The focal point, however, is the generous heated pool with a hot tub in one corner, set into a mix of desert landscaping and lush lawn. After a swim or soak, rinse off in the outdoor shower, switch on the barbecue to prep dinner and end the evening gathered around the firepit. Inside, the house still has its original fireplace, but it also comes with decidedly 21st-century amenities like air conditioning and Wi-Fi.

The home’s low-slung profile and oversized aluminum and glass front door set the tone for the villa: cool and sophisticated, yet welcoming. The living areas flow into each other, inviting you to move through them, and floor-to-ceiling windows offer a preview of the backyard and pool. One sitting area is laid out around a stone fireplace, with icons like an Eames lounger, Noguchi coffee table and Koons sculpture making appearances, and another features a roomy sectional and television. The polished walnut dining set is separated from the fully equipped kitchen by another working stone fireplace.

The master suite at Sanctuary is a retreat in itself, with a queen bed, en-suite bathroom, private balcony and direct access to the patio around the pool. A second bedroom also has a queen bed and en-suite bathroom, and the third bedroom has a queen bed and access to a hall bathroom.

Not only is Sanctuary a model of desert architecture, it puts you at the center of the area’s famous golf courses: Desert Willow Golf Resort and Shadow Mountain Golf Course are less than 6 miles from the villa, and Bel Air Greens, Mesquite Golf & Country Club and Indian Canyons Golf Resort are less than 10 miles away. Spend an afternoon shopping at Westfield Palm Desert, about 4 miles away, strolling Moorten Botanical Garden, just over 8 miles away, or exploring Old Town La Quinta, 13 miles away. Plan to fly in and out of Palm Springs International, an 8-mile drive from the villa.
