Across the globe, Jon Jerde designed just three private homes during his high-profile career. The once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own one of them is only magnified by the extraordinary experience it offers the moment one steps inside. Renowned worldwide for his visionary commercial architecture —the late Jerde, along with his wife, Janice Ambry Jerde, made an incomparable statement with this residential achievement. This awe-inspiring project stands as a creative collaboration between architect, designer, builder, and owner. With the design team’s plans meticulously executed by DeWitte Construction and a group of expert craftsmen, this multi-level, nearly 10,000-square-foot masterpiece is nothing short of architectural brilliance. The Vintage Club set in the California desert near Palm Springs and an elevated lot overlooking the signature 16th Hole of the Mountain Course served as picturesque muses for the 8-bedroom, 11-bath estate at 47475 Vintage Drive East. With this home that masterfully encompasses stunning views from every angle, Jerde shaped a legacy like none other at The Vintage Club. To tour it is to fall under its spell.
The home’s most remarkable feature is quite possibly the unfurling grand hallway referred to as “The Gallery.” Carefully placed atrium windows frame natural vistas along its curved wall, while custom-designed sconces light and guide your way. This unique passage provides a spectacular showplace for artwork and connects the home’s central living areas to a staircase leading to the level below. A second staircase and an elevator located near the kitchen also joins the home’s two distinct levels, each which opens to their own patios for relaxation and entertaining. Bespoke details include Venetian plaster walls and limestone flooring inside and out. These make perfect complement to the sophisticated choices by White Design of Pacific Palisades in curating comfortable yet luxurious décor and furnishings.
On the main level, custom furniture, and area rugs beckon under an 18-foot barrel ceiling in the fairway-view great room. The formal dining room’s gold leaf ceiling details, mirrors, and gold leaf dining chairs around a custom limestone dining table – all designed to reflect a candlelit ambiance. A gourmet-style kitchen, well-heated al fresco dining loggia with fireplace, walk-up bar, formal and informal powder rooms, and cozy family room with morning table seating come together in a layout with beautiful flow. In the primary suite, a fireplace and private patio enhance this finely appointed retreat, complete with floor-to-ceiling glass, seperate baths (one with radiant heating), two custom-designed offices, and a beverage area. Two elegant guest ensuites and a two-ensuite bedroom wing with living area provide gracious family and guest accommodations. Panoramic fairway and mountain views abound from the home’s outdoor living areas with grassy lawn, pool, spa, and fire ledge.
On the subterranean level, a climate-controlled walk-in wine cellar accommodates over 1,000 bottles and adjoins a media room with theater-style seating. A pool table, working kitchen, massage room, six-person steam room, a fully equipped gym with bath (optional 8th bedroom), wrapping-craft room, and a guest apartment hosting 2 ensuite bedrooms and a gathering room with full kitchen and private patio to complete this level. The attached 3-car, 2-golf-cart garage is finished with air conditioning, a workshop, and plentiful storage. Timeless and elegant, the home is a both legend and an inviting, livable work of art. Weather a year-round residence, seasonal retreat or a convenient get-away, this home will suit any owner that seeks the best in all around accommodations and conveniences.
