This 12,000sf weekend residence is set within the Madison Club, a private golf resort located in a small community neighboring Palm Springs, California. The one acre site is oriented along and East – West axis, set on a ridge above the golf course, directly facing the dramatic San Jacinto mountains.
The Madison house is located on a West facing knoll overlooking a dramatic mountain range at the eastern end of the Coachella Valley. The area is known for its extreme summer heat and severe winds. During the winter months however the area is paradise – clear, sunny and temperate days, with cooler nights perfect for the indoor outdoor modern lifestyle made famous in photographs by Julius Shulman.
