Casbah Cove is located within the prestigious BIGHORN Golf Club in Palm Desert, California.  This home was inspired by the open and carefree living of Moroccan architecture and was designed as one of the most innovative and imaginative desert estate’s anywhere.  Built over the course of four years by talented craftsmen led by one of the most creative design teams, Casbah Cove is unlike anything you have ever seen.

The magnificent entry doors slide open from the center inviting you into the reception room and immediately you are transported to another place. The home reflects the layout of a modern riad, with most of the rooms opening onto the central arcade that surrounds an indoor atrium with king palms and lush landscaping.  You’ll experience the outdoors while living within the comforts of your home as the glass ceiling allows sunlight to filter in throughout the day or can retract and completely disappear giving an open-air ambiance which is perfect for the starry desert nights.   Additionally with disappearing doors throughout the home, three outdoor dining areas, outdoor hookah lounge and theatre, the casual transition from inside to outside living is seamless.  

No detail has been missed and every element of this home has a story.  Moroccan artisans spent months at the Casbah Cove estate carving wood, stone, plaster while loving and intricately laying thousands of feet of authentic tiles through the home.  The finishes and furnishings reflect an appreciation for quality and authenticity while creating a tranquil and relaxing environment.  It’s refined and sophisticated and yet casual and comfortable.  

Although spacious, the areas within this home were created to be enjoyed when spending time on your own as well as for entertaining.  The luxurious master retreat offers disappearing doors to the outside, just steps away from the lap pool, a spa-inspired white marble master bath with authentic Moroccan soaking tub, morning bar, outdoor shower, and a private secret garden with breathtaking views.

Poolside and panoramic mountain range views can be enjoyed from one side of the expansive office while the opposite side offers lushly landscaped atrium views.  Glass doors can appear on both sides for ultimate privacy or can vanish to allow indoor/outdoor living.

The family room draws you to relax with its warm and inviting colors and layout opening to the outdoor patio and taking in the views beyond.  An adjacent fully-appointed bar is conveniently placed for entertaining ease.  And the love of fine cuisine makes the kitchen a dream come true.  From the selection of culinary appliances to the artwork of the custom designed mahogany wood crafted island with sculpted drawers.  The catering kitchen off the dining room makes entertaining a breeze. And the formal dining area evokes the feeling of being in a modern Moroccan tent with the romantic draped ceiling and French doors that open to the outdoor terrace.

Whether for family or friends the accommodations will keep them coming back time and time again.   Two interior guest suites host a connecting sitting room with fireplace and outdoor balcony, each suite complete with richly appointed amenities. A detached guesthouse which opens up to a spectacular patio is another perfect option with spacious bedroom, sitting room, morning bar and luxurious bathroom.

If you have ever dreamed of having your own private spa right inside your home, here it is. Casbah Cove features a sophisticated Hammam, a classic Moroccan spa features an oversized spa, organic spa bed, fireplace, sitting areas with full-sized massage tables hidden within, expansive steam room and bath amidst the lushly landscaped atrium with water fountain.

High above the valley floor the unparalleled views of mountains and the valley below can be enjoyed from both a black granite 75’ lap infinity pool off the master suite or the 40’ round  reverse infinity edge swimming pool designed for sunning and entertaining.  Whether you are soaking in the desert sun with friends in the afternoon or taking in the twinkling stars and city lights at night while enjoy laps before bed you are in a world on your own.
