    ***Significant price reduction to allow buyer room to improve the property. *** This historic rock home built by R. Lee Miller in 1929 comes to market for the first time in 45 years. Perched above Araby Cove with panoramic views of the desert, this property offers privacy and solitude. There is a detached structure used previously as the garage and detached studio casita with full bath which has been used as an artist's studio in the past. This home has two fireplaces and an original stove pipe. Look closely at the detail of the handcrafted doors, windows and shelves, ironwork on the door latches, ceiling beams and handmade fireplace tools. Look even closer and you will discover a hidden room behind a bookcase. Look closer still and you will see the original owner, Perle Martin Wheeler carved her named into a nook in 1931. These homes have a storied history (see attached articles) of which many myths and legends have endured over decades. The roof was just redone August 2022. It has historic Class 1, Landmark designation with the City of Palm Springs. It does allow short term rentals. The sister property to this is also for sale, 2501 Araby Drive (MLS#219083969).
