Desert Extravagance by Sean Lockyear and Anthony Cochran, $3.96MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Rancho Mirage has come a long way from open desert and date palm plantations. Beginning in the 1940s, farsighted developers created what is now an almost endless landscape of golf courses and luxurious residential architecture. New to the market after a multi-year renovation, one of the original Rancho Mirage houses has been luxuriously reinvented inside and out by architect Sean Lockyear AIA of Studio AR+D with interior designer Anthony Cochran, paying homage to the origins of desert modernism and the original structure. Lockyear joined the original structure, now comprising three guest bedrooms and two baths, to the new wing with an elegant new entry and foyer contained in a massive sculptural “hinge” of blackened steel.
The new wing doubled the size of the original house, containing a living room, a beautifully detailed kitchen, dining room and a luxe master suite–all with effortless access to the outdoor living spaces.
Sliding walls of glass open the primary bedroom to the pool, creating an extraordinary setting.
