If you spent this week, like me, watching “When We Rise,” the powerful, moving and star-studded ABC TV docudrama miniseries about the LGBT rights movement–from the 1960s until today–you noticed that Palm Springs, California played a significant supporting role.
The series was directed by Gus van Sant, written for the screen by Dustin Lance Black and based on the book “When We Rise: My Life in the Movement” by gay activist Cleve Jones.
In one scene, Cleve’s character says something like, you can’t change the world or start a movement from Palm Springs, so he moves back to San Francisco. He had a point. Palm Springs is where most LGBTQ home owners come for the weekend or to retire. But just because we’re retired doesn’t mean we don’t support those still actively involved on the front lines, through networking connections, fund raising and in other ways.
Just one of the many celebrities and notable individuals to have called Palm Springs home, Cleve’s former Palm Springs home was located in the Warm Sands neighborhood. If you’re ready to call this city–rich in gay history–home, please contact me today at the number listed above.
For under $80,000 you can own a 1/12th fractional share in a modern-style, Palm Springs condo in the heart of town. Monthly homeowner association fees are approximately $350 a month and include maintenance, concierge service and many luxury amenities.
Currently on the market is a 3 bedroom, 3 Bath unit with approximately 2023 square feet.
The complex was originally built in 1963. Following a renovation, it now offers residents the opportunity to combine the convenience of staying in a luxury hotel with the privacy and benefits of owning a second home through fractional ownership. It also offers the cool midcentury style with today’s contemporary updates and elegant finishes.
In the words of the developer, “By purchasing a fraction rather than an entire residence, you are able to flexibly use your property as you like without the headaches or cost of owning a home.”
Contact me today to learn more about this unique and affordable opportunity. I would be happy to show you any of the condos currently for sale.
The Warm Sands neighborhood of Palm Springs boasts more gay hotels than probably any other neighborhood in this very gay-friendly city. Hundreds, if not thousands of gay travelers, from around the world, visit Palm Springs and stay in Warm Sands hotels each years.
It’s also home to one of the coolest street art sculptures in town (see photo above).
Warm Sands, however, is not just for visitors, vacationers and art lovers. This popular neighborhood, located about a mile from downtown Palm Springs, is also a favorite of home buyers who want to own their own land and who prefer non-gated communities with no monthly homeowner association fees.
You certainly don’t need to be an art lover or gay, to buy a home in this popular subdivision. The centrally located neighborhood offers a very eclectic and diverse mix of architectural home styles, from Spanish and historic to midcentury modern and bungalow for every budget and every lifestyle.
