Agent Tip: Resort-Like Property in Rancho Mirage
Vacation, schmaycation -- if we lived in a place like this, we'd never need to get away. Sent to us by Vicki Lee of HOM Sotheby's International Realty, today's cool house in California's Coachella Valley feels more like a five-star resort than a private home.
Location: Rancho Mirage, Calif.

The five-acre estate has some of the most elaborate landscaping we've seen yet, dotted with tranquil ponds, cascading waterfalls, meandering pathways and stone bridges. And did we mention the amenities? There's a pool and spa, a basketball court, a lighted tennis court and an outdoor kitchen -- all overlooking scenes of snow-capped mountain peaks and desert sunsets.
The luxury continues inside the 17,000-square-foot main house and separate guesthouse, where we find eight bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a home theater, a wine tasting room and a billiards parlor. Sounds like a lot of space, but we can think of a few friends and family members who would gladly keep those extra rooms booked up all year long, couldn't you?
