Why we have a crush on this property
All of our Property Crushes feature homes with standout details, from a modern masterpiece in a field of orange poppies to a Brooklyn loft with a giant clock window. But this cabin for sale in California is practically overflowing with extraordinary features.
How do we love thee? Let us count the ways.
For starters, this stucco cabin is perched atop a hill in none other than the Mojave Desert, offering sweeping views in all directions. It’s also tucked away in a town beside Joshua Tree National Park and happens to be a quick drive from the mid-century modern splendor of Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley.
Aside from its stunning location, the cottage shines inside and out. A kitchen with sparkling new appliances, a geometric backsplash, and a farmhouse sink opens to a fireplaced living and dining area. In the bathroom, there are live-edge wood counters and a glass-enclosed shower, and throughout the home, there are cement floors.
The house counts two bedrooms, one of which has French doors that lead to an outdoor fire pit. The lot stretches to 2.5 acres and connects to hiking trails from the backyard.
Perhaps the most surprising detail of all is that the property asks under $300,000. In love yet? This rare find is listed by Jasmine Farrow with Sotheby’s International Realty.
