Open House Obsession: X8 Property & Design’s Joshua Tree Hideout, $320K


Palm Springs getting too intense? Too suburban? Too manicured? The vast empty expanses of the Mojave Desert are only an hour away, and this hideout, in the quiet northern reaches of Joshua Tree could be the perfect place to escape. The classic ’60s ranch is a project of Karen McAloon and Mikel Hubbard of 8x Property & Design, the Los Angeles/San Francisco/High Desert design (and short-term rental management) firm that’s carving its niche where Boho Chic meets bespoke design. Veterans of HGTV, McAloon and Hubbard get to the point:  “Our goal is to create your perfect space to live, work or rent out that’s built around your taste. We want our clients to feel like every project reflects them, not us.”

With white walls and pale woods, polished concrete floors and pops of color, this is the perfect place to chill.

What We Love: The renovation is fresh and simple and basic enough to make your own, (although it can be available turnkey). You’re in the desert, with the dazzling night sky as a bonus. There are neighbors, but with almost a half-acre of land they’re not on top of you; removed the from the fray of “downtown” Joshua Tree, yet a quick trip into the arid beauty of Joshua Tree National Park and to the rugged sophistication of places like the 29 Palms Inn and La Copine
