Visit Joshua Tree in style by staying at this spectacular custom home nestled into Historical Bandolier Ridge in Western Hills Estates.
HGTV’s celebrity designer and founder of JE Proscapes, Jesse Escalera, thoughtfully designed every inch of this home to emulate the ultimate private resort style experience.
Bandolier Ridge’s unique look is a contemporary take on Rustic Western Style outfitted with spectacular custom features that are sure to blow your mind.
Upon arrival to Bandolier Ridge, you will be greeted with spectacular panoramic desert views and a quick stroll up to the front door through the cactus garden.
As you approach the front door, get ready for the big reveal. There’s a lot to take in, but the first thing you will notice is 30 feet of sliding glass doors separating you and the massive waterfall in the backyard. This waterfall was designed to mimic the surrounding rock landscape and bring the colors of the land into the home.
The open floor plan blends the kitchen, dining, and living room into a great room where everyone can be together whether you’re cooking up a feast or lounging on the couch.
Down the hallway are all three bedrooms. “We really wanted every bedroom to feel special because we want our guests to be excited about the sleeping arrangements, no matter which room they end up staying in,” comments Jesse Escalera.
The first room is the Bunk Room. “When we decided to incorporate a bunk bed, we wanted to make sure it was one that we would be happy to sleep in ourselves. So, the custom made double queen bunk is extra strong, ultra comfortable, and styled thoughtfully,” comments Escalera.
The next bedroom on the right is the Queen Room. If you came to the desert for the views, this room is for you. With sliding glass doors on two walls, you can’t really look anywhere without taking in some nature.
The King Master really speaks for itself. It’s full of custom details. Some of those details are in your face, like the enormous wooden wall mural behind the bed and the huge glass double shower with exposed copper pipes. Some are more subtle like the glowing lights throughout the room that help carry the magical ambiance that you will feel throughout the home.
Whether you feel like soaking in the spa listening to the sounds of the rushing waterfall, roasting marshmallows around the fire pit, or gazing at the twinkling stars on the front deck… the exterior features at Bandolier Ridge will really enhance your outdoor experience.
If you’ve made it this far, you get a special tip: There is a secret door in the home that leads to a Speakeasy Game Room. The question is… will you be clever enough to find it?
“When we built this home, we wanted to create a space that feels magical. Every decision we made was based on making your visit to Bandolier Ridge feel like vacation at a private resort,” explains Escalera.
As guests, you’ll enjoy access to the entire home and all the Southern California Desert has to offer. Enjoy the waterfall and heated spa year round, and the pool can be heated upon request.
