You can find this gorgeous desert oasis in Landers, California, surrounded by the Mojave Desert. It’s been built here originally in 1987 and it recently underwent a complete renovation thanks to interior designer Karen McAloon.
It’s now a modern and welcoming place, filled with natural light and with large and open spaces that take advantage of the unique location and the views.
The house is a 3-bedroom structure with the social and the private areas separated from one another. This distinction allows the bedroom wing to retain a more intimate feel and to remain quiet and tranquil while the social areas are ideal for entertaining.
The living area has access to a partially-covered patio and to a shipping container swimming pool that can double as a jacuzzi. Outside there’s also a generously-sized fire pit seating area and a detached garage.
Inside the house, the kitchen takes up one of the corner areas, featuring oak cabinets and a big island with a quart top and bar seating on two sides. The kitchen is open to the rest of the social areas, namely a dining space and a seating area beautifully delineated by textured area rugs on top of the polished concrete floor.
The three bedrooms occupy a separate wing and each communicates freely with the outdoor areas. The master bedroom has sliding barn doors, an elegant canopy bed frame and its own private patio. Its bathroom features a double walk-in shower in addition to a double sink vanity and a soaking tub. The guest bathroom is considerably smaller but very charming thanks to the stone tiles and live edge vanity.
