Once in a lifetime a person comes across a home that is the most fabulous and unique piece of art and structural design. It is here at The Vintage Club in Indian Wells. This exciting and exquisite mansion that took three and a half years to build by Gerry Langlois Construction under the watchful eye of Beverly Hills architect, Bob Ray Offenhauser and decorator, John Cottrell. Through the years of purchasing furnishings abroad, the rooms of this home are a study of magnificent taste. From the marble floors throughout to the gorgeous gold tiled dome with Italian Murano Alabaster chandelier that greets at the entry. From the entry and beyond you will see Mother of Pearl estate armories and mirrors. Left of the entry hall is an interior atrium with reflection pool and a custom designed stain glass ceiling. Hand-carved arches surround the rooms that have custom made furniture upholstered with luxurious silk in a vibrant and regal palette of color, as are the draperies. All the gold door hardware throughout the home is designed by Guerin.
There is a formal living room with
focal point fireplace and a large family room with piano and wet bar, both
offering picturesque views. The formal dining room is framed by an ornate
hand-carved wood grill work that encompasses a mirrored dining room table and
Baccarat chandelier. The kitchen boasts herringbone wood floors by Rode Brothers
and a morning room’s commissioned mural that reflects the myth and mystery of
the Sahara Desert. A large center island, custom cabinetry and hand-painted
tiles compliment the decor.
This home of 9,604± square feet of elegant living offers the master suite plus three guest suites, each with en-suite bath. The master suite is beyond description. From the gold Lurex threads woven into the custom carpet, to the large sitting room in front of the fireplace and on to the gently elevated Indian silk beaded canopy bed - it defines “elegance personified”. The master bath is a very impressive marble comforting expanse with large walk-in rain forest shower, his and hers dressing areas featuring gold sinks by Sheryl Wagner and gold designed faucets by Phyllich. A spacious jacuzzi tub set in marble and his and her walk-in closets complete this space. The formal guest powder room features Gold Lamé fabric covered walls, marble floors and counter top with gold sink and faucets.
Three guest suites, two on the entry level and one located in the lower level of the home, each have a dedicated marble bath. There is a gold-leaf canopy bed in the blue room and a jacuzzi tub in its bath. A Moroccan designed bed graces the pink room highlighted by custom made carpet and a bath with step-in shower.
A grassed driveway leads to the home’s attached two car garage plus a third bay to accommodate two golf carts, of which one golf cart will be included in the purchase of the home.
The lower level is accessed via a marble staircase with gilded handrails that lead from the upper level of the home to home’s entertainment area. A wall of windows and doors allow natural light to permeate this space from its private patio garden. As you step from the staircase you enter the large media room that sits adjacent to the game room (which can also be an office or a gym). The media room has a projection drop-down screen and equipment room. There is a full working kitchen fully stocked, a large guest suite with multiple sleeping area and a bathroom. There is a second bathroom with shower located on this level along with a large laundry room and a mechanical utility room.
This glorious home is an entertainer’s paradise. The splendid patio area can seat over one hundred guests for dining and overlooks the 17th Hole of the Club’s Mountain Course. One of the most photographed holes of the Club’s 36 holes of its two Tom Fazio designed courses. Celebrated for its dazzling display of the flora and fauna that surround the meandering lakes, waterfalls and emerald green fairways, the perched lot upon which this home sits offers club, valley and mountain views. With most tournament playoffs being held here, the best viewing is from this home. The landscape is kept at perfection and the lagoon style swimming pool with rock waterfalls is set away from the main residence offering privacy and a sense of swimming in a crystal-clear lake. There is also a large spa with waterfalls, a built-in barbecue area with large seating area, television and phone outlets. Along the side of the residence are fountains that generate a sense of coolness and a calming serenity. There are large columns around the patio area along with arched overhangs to provide shaded and relaxed areas. All the outdoor furniture is included.
Both the residence and the landscaping are beautifully maintained since the home’s completion and has been cared for year around by full-time staff. It is offered furnished and is in perfect move-in condition. Some artwork will be included in sale. Home is closed for Summer June 1st through October 15th. All showings to qualified buyers must be pre-arranged and approved through the exclusive onsite brokers.
