Prepare to be impressed. Tarbell, REALTORS’ Desert specialists Abraham Baghbodorian and Elena Ramirez are proud to offer an exceptional equestrian home in the heart of the Coachella Valley. An Estates Collection presentation from Tarbell’s Preferred Properties Division, Sweet Spot Ranch is a one-of-kind equestrian estate encompassing nearly nine acres in Indio. Blending ranch life with the enduring pleasures of California’s desert lifestyle, this extraordinary property features a sprawling single-level home, two guest cottages, a dreamy outdoor oasis, and spectacular mountain views.
A long private drive sweeps up to the entrance, curving in a circle to deliver guests to the front door. Dotted about the landscape, bronze sculptures depict scenes of the Southwest, shaded by mature trees and towering palms. Equestrian facilities include several fenced arenas and a four-stall stable with a tack room. The estate’s proximity to major equestrian events, such as November’s National Sunshine Series and the HITS Horse Show that runs from January through March, makes it the ideal location for equestrian enthusiasts.
Over 6,200 square feet, the spacious primary residence includes three large bedrooms and four-and-one-half bathrooms in a floor plan designed for entertaining. Every room is generously proportioned. The enormous formal living room includes an inviting fireplace flanked by floor-to-ceiling columns of stone, and views of the estate’s pool and private pond. The built-in granite wet bar, which easily seats four or more, features an ice-maker, refrigerator, and a wine cooler. Custom cabinetry houses a large television behind the bar. Overlooking the pond, the formal dining room will easily accommodate a very large table for hosting memorable dinner parties and special holiday meals.
In the gourmet kitchen, the chef will appreciate the polished granite counters, large pantry, and the flood of natural light from the skylight. Ceiling-mounted cabinetry with glass doors hangs above the butcher block island. Built-in appliances include the oversized refrigerator, five-burner cooktop, double ovens, a warming drawer, and two dishwashers. On the other side of the kitchen, the cheerful morning room includes a casual dining area, access to the dining patio with its built-in barbeque, and a great view of the pond. With so much square footage, the home gives residents the option of using flex spaces to suit their lifestyle. The bonus room could be used as a media center, game room, library, or home office. A spiral staircase leads to the versatile loft, perfect for a fitness room, art studio, or playroom.
Each of the bedrooms includes ample closet space. The master suite offers two walk-in closets, a romantic fireplace, and direct access to the pool deck. The secondary master suite features a walk-in closet, spa tub, and lighted vanity. The separate cottages add approximately 2,000 square feet of living space and provide additional accommodations for visitors or on-site staff. Guest house number one has a comfortable living room, a kitchen, two bedrooms, and a bath. The second guest house adds a single bedroom and bath and an additional living area.
Amenities include wood and tile flooring, beautiful built-ins, ceiling fans, recessed lighting, glass shower enclosures, a full-size laundry room, large windows that maximize the views, a three-car garage with direct access to the main house, and a two-car garage attached to the guest cottages.
Step outside, where the Sweet Spot Ranch experience includes an enticing pool and spa, a sunny pool deck, and shady patios. Set alongside the deep turquoise water of the pond, a firepit is encircled by built-in seating for all your guests. A gently rolling lawn of green grass surrounds the home and cottages. The gated and fenced estate includes its own well, a basketball court, three storage sheds, and a manufactured home.
