Shangri La in the Desert.  Actor Robert Stack (Elliot Ness of the television series, The Untouchables) bought this Spanish hacienda for his mother, Elizabeth Modini in 1955. Upon entering the home you will feel as though you have been transported back in time to Old Hollywood. Located in The Mesa, one of Palm Springs most exclusive neighborhoods  which is nestled into the base of the majestic San Jacinto mountains.  After a 16 month renovation this stunning, architecturally significant piece of history has been re-imagined as  a Modern Moroccan desert gem.  In this magnificant space, high-end materials (natural stone tile, restored brickwork & hardwoods) work in concert with rich layers of texture and pattern.  An airy floorplan includes a separate wing with 3 Bedrooms (all with private ensuites plus separate powder room) that adjoins the public living space via a soaring glass-walled gallery.  The gallery is lit with 2 elegant chandeliers.  The open-concept greatroom features a kitchen with high-end appliances including Sub-Zero refrigerator and custom wine refrigerator, six-burner Thermador professional gas range and KitchenAid dishwasher.  A quartz countertop with waterfall edge clads the more than 12 foot island.  The oversized indoor dining area has a wall of french doors which lead to a spacious Moroccan tiled deck for outdoor dining.  Other features include: built-in floor-to-ceiling library wall in the living room & a  walk-in closet in the master bedroom with lavish ensuite bath complete  with outdoor shower.  The extremely private backyard is anchored by an outdoor living room with a dramatic outdoor fireplace and of course a large pool and spa.  If you are looking for a trophy property with a pedigree in one of the most coveted locations in Palm Springs, look no further than this extraordinary home in The Mesa.
