South Palm Springs

Maurice Minno - Palm Springs Homes Realtor

The 19 neighborhoods in South Palm Springs include some of the newest Palm Springs Home communities, especially in the Andreas Hills neighborhood and  the Indian Canyons.  South Palm Springs Homes with the best positioning are sited to take advantage of the majestic views of both the San Jacinto and the Santa Rosa Mountains.  In addition, the Mesquite Golf & Country Club, the Canyon Country Club and the Indian Canyons Golf Resort have golf courses which weave through the communities of South Palm Springs homes forming wonderful green vistas across the courses.

Three of the South Palm Springs neighborhoods I want to highlight are The Mesa, Deepwell Estates, and the Indian Canyons.

Maurice Minno - RealtorThe Mesa is home today to Barry Manilow, Suzanne Sommers and Riff Markowitz - the Palm Springs Follies man.  Homes in the Mesa are an eclectic mix of many home types including Santa Barbara, Desert Modern, Palm Springs Bungalows and Vintage Palm Springs styles. 

Maurice Minno - RealtorDeepwell Estates. Deepwell, reportedly named for the ’deep well’ drilled in the late twenties by scientist Henry Pearson, today is a neighborhood considered highly desirable by Palm Springs Home Buyers given its attractive mix of property types and architectural styles, including newer and historic properties, and a number with star-studded prior ownership pedigree.  One good friend of mine who purchased a home in Deepwell Estates on Driftwood Street recently was attracted to Deepwell by its narrower, more pedestrian-friendly streets and clear feeling this neighborhood was mature and comfortable.

Maurice Minno - RealtorThe Indian Canyons are known for the Canyon Country Club and Indian Canyons Golf Resorts. The Aqua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians lands’ encompass the southern end of Palm Springs bounded by the famed Indian Canyons and original massive Palm Oasis’. The Indian Canyons neighborhood has many authentic Palm Springs Mid-Century Modern Homes which were built in the 1960’s e.g., Canyon View Estates designed by William Krisel AIA, built in 1963.
