The living room, open to the kitchen and dining nook, features a large sliding glass door accessing the front patio and high windows set beneath the wide Ocotillo Lodge overhangs. Flor tiles set above crisp white floors offer a spot of color, and helps define the living area.
The bedroom is relatively diminutive in size, but features
the same high windows as the living room offering glimpse mountain and palm
tree views, while a patterned wallpaper accent wall gives the room a fun, hip
vibe. The bathroom has undergone a complete renovation as well, with new high-gloss
vanity, fixtures, and backsplash tilework. The mosaic tile wall in the shower
surround was the only surviving original feature of this unit, and still
appears relevant in this restoration.
This unit offers a ready-to-go lifestyle, being sold
fully-furnished. It’s a perfect vacation retreat, rental or second home for
those looking for a low maintenance, lock & leave midcentury sanctuary.
