Las Palmas Heights Community Information
Other nearby neighborhoods are Old Las Palmas (to the southeast) and Chino Canyon (to the north). The entire area is infused with Hollywood glamor, being one of the first places settled by famous stars as they found a quiet retreat from L.A. and Hollywood to the west. The area gained this status due to its ideal combination of fine weather, resort amenities, and being both within a 2-hour drive of Hollywood’s studios and outside the distance within which nosy paparazzi could claim travel expenses.
To the immediate west of Las Palmas Heights are the rising slopes of the San Jacinto Mountains and downtown Palm Springs is less than 10 minutes to the south.
Overall, the area of Las Palmas Heights is relatively small, consisting of some 50 housing sites, some of which are empty lots. The eastern boundary of Las Palmas Heights is defined by North Via Monte Vista, and the southern border is defined by the properties just south of Cam Norte. Other streets in the area are West Stevens Road, North Rose Avenue, Coronado Avenue, Juarez Avenue, and the private gated street of Las Palmas Heights.
Sometimes, the private street of Las Palmas Heights is what people refer to specifically as the “Las Palmas Heights” community. The gated street of Rose Avenue is also known as “Rose Hill”.
Las Palmas Heights Real Estate
Las Palmas Heights is a neighborhood with an impeccable pedigree within the Palm Springs area. The general area is home to some famous works of architecture, like the Raymond Loewy House and Kaufmann House, and the glamorous former residences of iconic stars like Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe.
These properties really set the tone and overall aesthetic of Las Palmas Heights, which features a variety of custom-built mid-century modern homes. These homes display the typical flat, geometric shapes, creating sleek and open spaces with an abundance of glass walls and clerestory windows to enjoy the clear light and views of the surrounding mountains. Sprawling open-plan layouts and amenities like tennis courts and pools complete the picture of desert luxury and comfort.
There are also a few more contemporary homes, completed in variations of Mediterranean revival styles, with red tile roofs, stucco walls, and tall turrets and balconies. Given the age of the community, a number of the homes are certified classics, some are newer re-builds, and there are also a few empty lots available for custom homes of the future.
In sum, the limited supply, prestigious area, and classic luxury designs of the homes for sale in Las Palmas Heights make this real estate in the area not to be missed.
