The Kassinger House in Thunderbird Heights in Rancho Mirage was commissioned to Donald Wexler, AIA, by the Kassinger Family to create the ultimate Desert escape. It is on the City of Rancho Mirage Register of Historic Places, and has the tax advantages of The Mills Act. Unassuming from the street enter down the garden path through custom one of a kind wood gates to reveal a garden sanctuary. Double door entry will reveal the commanding views of the mountains and surroundings as this property is on one of the highest streets in guard gated Thunderbird Heights. With roughly 5351 square feet and .60 acre lot the imprint and characteristic features of Wexler are apparent from the use of steel and glass and overhangs supported by the "spider leg" posts. The expansive open living area with fireplace and bar expose the floor to ceiling glass and large veranda outdoor areas with sparkling pool and spa below. The primary bedroom wing features two bathrooms, two large walk in closets, cedar closet and separate den/office area looking to the private inner garden. The large centralized kitchen is shielded from the other communal areas of the home which was of the era when the property was built. The dining area has floor to ceiling windows on two sides and while open to the other communal areas provides an intimate experience. Flanking the kitchen is another den with direct access to the outdoor living vignettes and BBQ. Two other guest suites in the main house as well as a powder room and large interior laundry area. Attached to the property is also a one bedroom guest house with private living area and separate entrance. This property is a hidden gem that many are unaware of and is just waiting for the next steward.
