Greet the morning sun from expansive windows in this richly upgraded, casita-enhanced Monterey, one of Trilogy at La Quinta's most popular floorplans. For good reason. Its substantive kitchen—with huge granite-slabbed counters and bar-height seating—is integrated into a spacious great room with media niche and dining nook to accommodate today’s easy-flow entertaining.
The current office can easily become a formal dining space while the thoughtfully-separated master suite—with dual vanities and walk-in closet—and guest room provide main-house sleeping quarters.
The detached casita located off the enclosed front courtyard ups the bedrooms to three while offering a 255-square-foot respite with kitchenette for your special guests. The private courtyard provides additional private outdoor living space for you and your company.
Additional features include 20” on-the-diagonal tile, stainless appliances and extensive stone backsplash, master and guest baths replete with natural stone, 4’-extended garage for golf-cart storage, and an entertaining-ready backyard highlighted by a custom-designed glass-filled firepit.
No rear neighbors, just the serenity of the Santa Rosa Mountains.
There are few casita homes now on the market in this wonderfully affordable club and this one is special. If you're desirous of a well-designed space, plenty of sunshine, separate guest quarters, and luxury touches throughout, this competitively-priced property is for you.
Priced at $375,000 ($190/sf)
Trilogy is La Quinta's preeminent active-retirement community in a Palm Springs valley known for its 55-and-over country clubs. The Shea-built homes just finished selling its final-phase homes this year and can now count 1203 homes—with 12 floorplans—in the development. Eco-friendly materials and solar power, Energy Star appliances, dual-pane windows, and high-performance insulation reflect the community's green values.
Nestled along the very base of the Coral Mountains—part of the Santa Rosas framing the Coachella Valley—at the southern tip of La Quinta but only a short drive to shops and restaurants, Trilogy offers both tranquility and incredible beauty. PGA West is right up the street while The Quarry and Andalusia at Coral Mountain are next-door neighbors.
The stunning golf course, designed by Gary Panks, has hosted many tournaments, including the PGA Tour’s LG Skins Game from 2003-2006. I remember doing a family tour of La Quinta one Thanksgiving weekend and spying Tiger Woods on the links with his entourage. It was the definite highlight of the day!
The course—7,175 yards from the championship tees—accommodates all levels of players with its five sets of tees. The architect admirably integrated the course contours within the inimitable natural desertscape. Even though the Valley boasts 123 golf courses, this one is special.
The heart of the sprawling club is the 21,000 square-foot Santa Rosa Club, a colorful, well-appointed campus offering a cafe, Coral Spa, fitness, Jr. Olympic-sized pool with overhead running track, ballroom, aerobics/yoga/Pilates studio, outdoor pool, etc. The list of amenities is impressive.
If you’re intrigued with a 5-star resort lifestyle for a fraction of the cost, Trilogy is a must-see.
