Tahquitz River Estates

Tahquitz River Estates is home to some of Palm Springs's most unique properties and the site of one of the city's most ambitious building projects.

When famed designer Paul Trousdale wanted to build along the shores of the Tahquitz River, the first problem he faced was that the river was notoriously bad for flooding. To build his development, his crew had to dig a 200-foot gully to funnel the water away from the build site.

Today, it's fair to say that Trousdale's efforts were well worth it. This community enjoys one of the best locations in the city. Tahquitz River Estates is a fifteen-minute walk from Downtown and a twenty-minute walk to Palm Springs High School. The neighborhood also borders Mesquite Golf Club, so those who enjoy the fairways are only minutes away.
