A spacious, four-bedroom desert retreat is now up for grabs in Rancho Mirage, California. Nestled in an upscale nine-home enclave called Echo, the 4,155-square-foot property was designed by award-winning architect Sean Lockyer of Studio AR&D, and offers an intimate connection between home and nature, inside and out.
Although the exterior is dominated by commanding stone masonry walls, a softer palette awaits inside, made up of natural materials like stone, marble, and hardwoods. Indirect skylights bathe the walls in natural light, while floor-to-ceiling windows and doors overlook a central garden and swimming pool. The result is a visual interplay of light and form throughout the one-story structure.
“There’s an undeniable magic to this project,” describes Echo developer and desert native Eric Smith. “With Echo, my brother, Sean, and I wanted to contribute something genuine and relevant to the cultural landscape. We didn’t want anything forced or seemingly unnatural. Sean was our first and only choice to fully execute that vision.”
“Once we brought Sean on board, it then became a truly architecturally driven project,” continues Eric. “Trusting his talent, we simply asked him to do what he does so masterfully: Design spectacular living spaces. With open mountain vistas in every direction, he took full advantage of capturing the view corridors.” Scroll ahead to see more of the home, currently listed for $2,300,000.
