Conceived of as a pavilion within an expansive desert garden, 19 Golden Sunray Lane is a rare single-story home in the Promontory Community of The Ridges that merges the timeless design of the mid century with the comforts and technology of the 21st century. Inspired by an era when homes provided a refuge to clear the mind, find stillness, and appreciate the surrounding landscape, the dwelling emphasizes the connection of architecture and nature to the well-being of its inhabitants. The soft, muted tones of the interiors reinforce the calming effect of the desert and comfort is paramount. Every room in the home allows visitors to meditate on or wander through the painting like viewing gardens. Beyond the gardens, the home holds views of mountain ridges, large mature trees, and the Mojave desert. Boulders, sage brush and cacti feel as if they almost creep into the threshold of the home, allowing one to constantly interact with the beauty of the vast desert landscape.
