MAGICAL OASIS, The Former home of Suzanne Somers and Alan Hamel. Beyond a discreet gated entrance awaits a hidden paradise that slowly reveals itself, with a meandering driveway leading past a cascading waterfall and landing at a terrace that unveils a European-inspired villa on the hill above. Where a collection of five unique structures unites to create one truly unequaled estate on more than 28 acres of unsurpassed beauty. Terraced on a hillside naturally embellished with dramatically exposed rock, the estate is both impressive and inviting. An open-air carriage, in the form of a custom funicular, carries passengers up to the residence as panoramic views are revealed below. Intimate walkways, large view terraces and secret patios are interspersed among the buildings, some of which date back 100 years. Explore an outdoor amphitheater, a lagoon-style pool, hiking trails, five world class suites including the Main Suite with its hillside location, heated tub with City views, two offices and terraces and the famous Albert Frey design Rock House. a two-room chef's kitchen with wine cellar, elegant Formal Dining room and poolside Living room. This is the place all will gather for the perfect winter weather and setting. Serene with nature yet minutes to world class dining, entertainment, and Palm Springs International Airport. It is the home you never knew you always wanted.
