BIGHORN Golf Club offers an incomparable Italian-infused living experience.
Online PR News – 24-March-2015 – Palm Desert, CA – Tucked against the rugged mountainside and showcasing mountain range panoramas, 119 Navtem Place is a spectacular Old World estate offering an Italian-infused experience like none other. The spectacular setting, architectural details, exceptional antique collection and private locale are only rivalled by the unique Italian farmhouse design and authentic, centuries-old details—from eye-catching materials and rich finishes to exquisite antiques and custom accents imported from renowned regions across Italy.
A tiered path creates a dramatic introduction to this south-facing 4 bedroom, 4 full and 2 half bath residence that offers 6,845sf of interior living plus a 1,335sf covered patio. Designed to recall the rustic romance of Florence and Rome, the Venetian plaster-enhanced home and its three detached guest suites mirror villas of the Italian countryside by creating their own private village, enhanced by a lush, rose garden courtyard and sweeping entertainment patio.
Past the towering vault ceiling in the entry, ancient first-cut stone flooring from Israel and antique Italian tile leads into the home. Antique iron sconces light the way into the inviting living room where custom hand-painted murals around doorways and an antique Peperino stone fireplace (one of three) pair with gorgeous Corzine sofas, wood beam ceilings and an expansive, antique three-section bibliotheca cabinet teeming with rare collectibles.
With all the charm of Italy’s culinary heritage, the inspired kitchen will impress even professional chefs. Two gleaming Cavendish Grey Classic Carrera marble-topped walnut prep tables join dual granite farmhouse sinks, high-performance appliances, a stone fireplace, and pitched wood beam ceiling.
Experience indoor/outdoor living on the entertainment patio featuring fairway views. Relax in custom teak furnishings that combine with a disappearing flat-screen television above the fireplace, water-efficient turf lawn, infinity-edge pool, and spa with plunging waterfall.
Straight out of a Florence storybook, the master suite features a carved wood 4-posted bed, checkerboard floor of wood and terracotta tiles, and vintage doors from Italy. The open double rain shower in the spa bath was made from an Italian fountain—a whimsical accompaniment to the stately freestanding carved Carrara marble bathtub, heated Spanish tile floor, and trio of high windows enhanced by hand-laid mosaic tiles.
Surrounding a lushly landscaped center courtyard, three freestanding villas serve as independent guest suites.
