Desert Modernism, Alive and Well In Rancho Mirage, 2.45MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Built in 2018 by noted contractor Thomas Troy, this very special Modernist home in Magnesia Falls Cove just came on the market for $2.45M. Presenting a severely elegant street front, Troy composed the home around a walled, hedged and fully private “outdoor room” with a pool, spa and lounging areas, giving it an uncommon sense of retreat. Signature modernist elements—high ceilings, expanses of polished concrete floors and walls of glass—frame mountain views over the immaculately trimmed hedge.
The principal entry, tucked away on the side of the structure, leads to a serene walled courtyard inspired by Mexican architect Luis Barragan, providing one more step away from the outside world before entering the house.
What We Love: The seamless passage between indoors and out, and the way the house echoes classic Mid-century design while being completely new.
The media area just beyond the main living space leads directly to the primary suite. An additional pair of ensuite bedrooms is at the opposite end of the house.
