The first time I visited the desert I arrived with low expectations. Why? Well, I always thought of myself as a beach-y kinda guy. And while that’s true (hello, beach house!) I actually ended up falling in love with the desert on my first trip to Palm Springs six years ago. So much so that my heartmate and I have often spoken about a dream of buying a property out there. I say dream because the prices were often too prohibitive for us to seriously consider buying a desert home in Palm Springs. That was until I discovered the Palm Canyon Mobile Club, who I’m partnering with for today’s blog post and IGTV episode. I’m touring you through two of their homes, a one bed and a two bed, both under $200,000, so let’s get to it!ONE BEDROOM HOME
This one bedroom home at Palm Canyon Mobile Club is on the market for $169,000 and features a wrap-around deck on two sides, a carport, spacious living-dining room, kitchen, bathroom, laundry room and bedroom.The open plan galley kitchen leads down the center of the property, from the living room through to the bedroom.The bedroom is flooded with natural light, has two sizable closets and a built-in dresser, plus clerestory windows with incredible views over the mountains around Palm Springs. I love how it’s move in ready!Colorful furniture and accessories are the perfect foil to the calm and neutral foundations of this one bedroom home.The wraparound deck provides plenty of breakout areas, from a lounge area, dining area and sun-lounger and hanging chair chill out area, meaning you can make the most of the beautiful desert weather no matter your mood or occasion.TWO BEDROOM HOME
The two bedroom house at Palm Canyon Mobile Club is on the market for $200,000 and offers considerably more space for the $31K price increase from the one bed, with a wider more open-plan living area, two beds and two bathrooms. It’s worth noting that you can also customize most of the one and the two bed properties at the Palm Canyon Mobile Club to have a wrap around porch/deck area if you wish. This property just has the front deck but it still has space for an outdoor seating area.Stepping inside the two bedroom property you enter to a large open-plan kitchen, dining, living area. Personally, I love this layout because it’s super sociable and perfect for entertaining.The end-to-end exposures mean natural light floods through the whole property.The second bedroom can easily be repurposed as a playroom or home office, while the master bedroom feels very private and has it’s own en suite bathroom. CLUBHOUSE AND POOL
Both properties also have access to the on-side Clubhouse, dog runs and beautiful pool area for $650pm. Pretty awesome that you can buy a property in the desert for under $200K and still have amazing amenities on site too, right?! Which home at the Palm Canyon Mobile Club do you like best, the one or two bed?
