Located in the heart of Rancho Mirage, the Solomon Estate is considered by many to be the most desirable property in all of the Coachella Valley, if not all of Southern California. Situated on five incredibly landscaped acres, it seems a Paradise Lost unto itself while still being located within several minutes of posh hotels, incredible shopping and a trove of upscale restaurants.
Mediterranean in exterior elevation and appearance, and crafted with old world adherence to detail, this architectural masterpiece hearkens back to days of yesteryear, reminiscent of an understated elegance, very seldom found in this day and age.
Access... to the Estate is afforded through a set of double gates which stem off the white plastered privacy walls surrounding the property. A large meandering circular drive, with adjacent pond and water feature, directs visitors to the massive Main House entryway.
The rear grounds of the Estate are nothing short of spectacular. With panoramic views of the San Gregorio Mountains, the visages are breathtaking and unique. After a moment or so of capturing the backdrop the large two tiered pond, with cascading waterfall, becomes apparent. A small gazebo, adorned with cupola, juts into the pond as if situated on its own isle.
Walking paths and gardens, landscaped and maintained to perfection, can be found throughout the grounds and love seats and benches have been strategically placed. The guest house, with over 1,200 square feet of living space, seems surrounded by landscape splendor. The step down tennis court, with covered seating area and mini bar, offers professional play, day or night, as well as half court basketball.
The large swimming pool and lattice covered spa is traversed by a stone bridge which separates the pool itself into two distinct entities. The large pool area allows for under sun water activity and exercise. The relative cove like area is defined by underwater bench seating and has an overhead trellis which gives the cove a tropical feel.
The cove area can comfortably accommodate upwards of 30 or seated guests and above bench shelving allows for food and drink placement.
Located under a large patio cover and situated between the guest house, the swimming pool and the Rose Garden is the large outdoor barbecue and entertainment area. A large barbecue grille and outdoor kitchen make barbecues virtually self contained and away from the main house kitchen. An outdoor fireplace for cooler days and evenings and an impressive cooling mist system for warmer days or evening are operational as requested or required.
The SOLOMON ESTATE Main House is not only elegant, but is well thought out in both floor plan layout and design function.

large outside Center Terrace. The Great Room detailed ceiling is 26 feet high.
Each end of the Great Room is defined by large precast block structures to the north, the rear to the Wine Grotto and to the South the front of a large massive fireplace reaching from floor to ceiling.

The final Downstairs North room is the incredibly elegant FORMAL DINING ROOM, replete with seating for twelve. French doors lead outward to a terrace which, in this case, is small and private and appears to sit atop one of the front water features and fountains.
Downstairs South is comprised of the Main House entertainment areas as well as the Master Bedroom. The GAME ROOM, has three separate wall mounted large screen televisions as well as CD's and videos. Center to the Game Room is an antique 1895, hand carved pool table.
Located off the South west rotunda are both the formal MOVIE THEATER and the GYMNASIUM/WORK OUT ROOM. The theater, with stadium seating and an old world charm and elegance, has both individual reclining chairs as well as a sofa. An overhead projector as well as cable allows for viewing of both television shows and videos. No theater should be without popcorn and refrigerated drinks and this theater has both, along with a

Separating the bath and the closet areas from the bedroom in the master suite, is a hallway galley kitchen which includes sink, microwave, small refrigerator, counter space and a Cuisinart coffee maker.
The Master Suite closet is large. A small special room, within the master closet and dressing area, allows for safekeeping of personal items and contains a large vault type safe. This special room is also fitted with special dedicated electrical circuits.
Across from the closet and dressing area is the Master Suite bath. Contained within the bath area are two separate his and her vanities and sink along with a separate make up vanity for her. A large spa type tub and huge shower adorns the master bath. The shower is also used as a steam room and is air tight and sealed when used as a steam room.
