Ironically, the shiplike Boat House, a futuristic home in Palm Springs, California is located in the heart of the desert. Commissioned by race car driver James Jeffords and designed by architect Michael P. Johnson in 1989, this naval-inspired structure was brought to life in 1992 to create the illusion that you are emerging from the hillside on a voyage across the valley floor far below.
The Boat House is nestled on the side of a hill in the gated community of Southridge. Listed for $1,950,000, this 3,905-square-foot home boasts 3 bedrooms and 3 baths. From the infinity pool deck and inside the home, with its soaring 24 foot ceilings and high glass walls, the house appears to project into the view.
The view of deserted landscape and valley is the first things that captures attention while you are in the living room at the bow of the “vessel.” There’s also an open-plan kitchen with sliding privacy screens, a dining area, and three en suite bedrooms, including the master suite, which features a skylight and fireplace and overlooks the living room.
A large mezzanine-style master suite with fireplace shares the spectacular open view with a separate private deck looking out toward the mountains. Each guest room offers seclusion and privacy with its own bath.
