Southridge | Palm Springs
This unique neighborhood in Palm Springs sits on a ridge above Palm Canyon wash, just south of East Palm Canyon Drive. The most noticeable and recognizable home in the neighborhood is at the very top, a John Lautner designed, domed mansion once belonging to Bob Hope.
Down the street, sits the iconic Elrod house, another Lautner design used most famously in the Bond movie, Diamonds are Forever.
As the ridge’s topography is rocky and steep, homes had to be built to accommodate the natural surroundings, and thus many are architectural wonders, incorporating giant boulders and cliffs into the design, while taking advantage of sweeping views of the entire Coachella Valley and its surrounding mountains.
Needless to say, homes in Southridge are pricey, but along the same street you’ll find condominiums from the ‘60s, built into the cliff, like steps going up the hill.
These condos offer classic mid-century modern design and breathtaking views. And considering where they are, their architectural significance, and the views they provide, they’re remarkably reasonable.
One road gets you into and out of the neighborhood and it empties onto East Palm Canyon Drive, putting you within minutes of world-class golf, shopping, dining and entertainment. Downtown Palm Springs is about ten minutes away, and for frequent travelers, the Palm Springs International Airport is so close, you can see planes glide silently by as they approach the runway.
The estates in this neighborhood are located on fee land that is owned.
