PALM SPRINGS HISTORY
Gorgeous California Ranch Style home purchased by the Hope family in 1946 and sold by the Hope Estate in 2013. Bob and Dolores lived there w/ their 4 children for years. Since then, this home has been thoughtfully updated but still retains much of its original integrity and meticulous construction for that era.
Great location in the very popular Movie Colony East - a quarter mile from the world-famous Palm Canyon Drive as it cuts through the Uptown Design District. An easy walk to Ruth Hardy Park. Casual eateries, fine dining, coffee spots, art galleries and specialty boutiques are all just a few minutes away. The Convention Center, Casino, public tennis courts, movie theaters, museums, and live performance venues are also very close by. This is the ideal location for those who want to be close to everything but just a little bit removed for peace and quiet.
