Condos at Desert Falls Country Club Offer The Desert Lifestyle

Leave a comment


Condos in the Desert Falls Country Club in Palm Desert offer the best of “the desert lifestyle”, including a carefree life-style since the HOA takes care of everything including all landscaping, 24 hour guarded gate, exterior maintenance, cable TV, 25 community pools and spas, 9 tennis courts (lit up at night), and a 3 floor state-of-the-art fitness center. The prices for these condos are very reasonable, too, starting in the low $200,000s. No wonder this is one of the most popular country clubs in the desert!  For golf enthusiasts, membership is available at the 18-hole championship Ronald Fream-designed Scottish course within the gates of Desert Falls Country Club,  listed as one of the top 10 courses by the SCPGA, and has earned a four-star rating from the “Golf Digest” list of “Best Places to Play”. There are often special golf membership deals available so check in with Golf Membership Director Dan McMahan at 760-423-1283 for the latest details!


I am proud to present my new listing for a beautifully remodeled, ground-level two bedroom, two full bathroom condo overlooking the 6th tee and with fabulous views of the golf course and mountains.  This 1360 square foot condo offers a nice patio with overhang on the north side where you can enjoy the panoramic views.



Here is a view of the condo and its patio, which is the lower left unit in this photo. There are four units per building.



From the front, in this following photo, you can see its two car garage which has a newer garage door. The front door is behind the stairs which go up to the unit above.



The address is 673 Vista Lago Circle N and it’s located on a quiet cul-de-sac, and surrounded by towering palm trees and colorful flowers and shrubbery.

The living room is bright and airy and has a dining area which is separated from the kitchen by an all granite counter area. There are plantation shutters throughout for a nice tropical ambiance. The 50 inch, wall-mounted, flat screen TV is to be included with the sale of this delightful condo.


All furniture and appliances are to be included in the sale of the condo. The kitchen has all granite counter-tops, newer cabinetry, newer and all-matching GE appliances including the washer and dryer in its own room.


Besides the dining area in the living room, there is a breakfast nook surrounded by windows in the kitchen.


Here is a better view of the dining area in the living room.


There are two bedrooms, and the master bedroom has its own bathroom en suite and plenty of closet space.



The other bedroom has sliding mirror closet doors, and the bathroom is in the hallway.




As previously mentioned, the GE washer and dryer are included in its own room.


While there is newer wall-to-wall carpet in the bedrooms, the rest of the floors are clad in 20 inch travertine-like ceramic tiles and set diagonally in the kitchen which opens up the space.

Be sure to talk to the Clubhouse for a tour and to learn about special membership deals (760-340-5646 ext. 225).

This highly desirable condo is offered for sale at $259,000 (reduced from $270,000), which is a great value for all the above-mentioned features.

Nearby are many shopping centers, restaurants, the McCallum Theatre for world-class cultural events and the Indian Wells Tennis Gardens for world-class tennis tournaments, and sometimes other events such as jazz concerts. This condo makes the perfect desert getaway as a second home or even as a year-round residence, which is becoming more and more common due to this area’s growing appeal and amenities. It also makes sense as an investment property since it is very easy to rent during our season which runs from October to the end of May and even into June.

Please stop by at an Open House or call agent Wendy Campbell to arrange a private showing (760-587-6009).


SOLD in Palm Desert: A cute condo in Shadow Mountain Resort

Here's a toast to getting another listing SOLD!

The real estate market is actually quite strong here in the Coachella Valley, because buyers realize that now is most definitely the time to buy with prices down 35% to 55% of their peak prices in “the day” of the heights of the real estate bubble , which was around 2005 to 2007, and even 2008, before “the crash”.  We have many “snowbirds” from colder climates who have been coming to our beautiful desert resort area during our season for years, and they know a good deal when they see one.  Rather then continuing to rent, they see the value in buying condos and houses here to not only live in but to rent out if they wish to.

Case in point, this is a very cute studio condo which my client bought for $180,000 in 2008.  She used it mostly as a rental because there is an on-side rental agency at Shadow Mountain resort, and it was frequently rented (which hampered getting it sold quicker than it did!). She wanted to sell it since she is down-sizing her real estate portfolio and lives in Northern California.

We received an all cash offer for $110,000 from a Canadian “snowbird” and decided to accept it.

In appreciation for my diligence in getting it sold, my client, who is a fine jewelry designer sent me a note and a gorgeous necklace and matching earrings (you can them in the above photo!).  The note read: “Dear Wendy, As a sign of my appreciation find the necklace and earrings I made for you. I hope you like both. Thank you for your help in selling my little place. I wish you all the best, Carmen”.

It is so nice to be appreciated! And, wow, to receive this beautiful jewelry custom-made for me, is truly a treat and heartfelt.

As with all my listings, I try to go beyond my clients’ expectations and go the extra distance to service the listing, be it to check on the property frequently and sweep and dust as necessary, follow up with all the agents and prospective buyers, hold as many open houses as possible and desired, advertise as necessary, network with other agents, and so on.  I can also organize the painting or fixing whatever, when clients are far-off.
