Sun Terrace, in Palm Desert, California, is a gated, affluent community of Mediterranean style homes that overlook the beautiful desert and mountain landscapes. This exclusive neighborhood of 114 homes was established in the late 1990’s.
These single-family homes have three to five bedrooms and range in size from 2,500 to 4,000 square feet. Home Owners Association dues are low because there are no pools, golf courses, or tennis courts to cover.
Homes at Sun Terrace have open floor plans for easy living and some tend to separate bedrooms and common areas with guest quarters in between. The kitchens have wonderful island bars that are connected to the great rooms. Many upgrades are to be found including plantation shutters, appliances, French doors, custom cabinetry, and dual bathroom sinks. Residents love the resort-style back yards that feature waterfalls, spas, and sparkling swimming pools. Highly ranked facilities are provided by Desert Sands Unified School District with James Earl Carter Elementary, Palm Desert Charter Middle School, and Palm Desert High School.
Sun Terrace is located on the corner of Eldorado Drive and Hovley Lane East. It is within minutes to the University of California as well as to Interstate 10. Although this neighborhood is private and peaceful, it is close to hospitals, golf courses, hiking trails, shopping, dining, and everyday services.
The City of Palm Desert offers many attractions like: the McCallum Theatre; the Living Desert Zoo and Gardens; and the Philip L. Boyd Deep Canyon Desert Research Center. This area is known as the golf capital of the world with thirty courses inside city limits. A combination of second home owners and year-round residents make up the population here. And international visitors are attracted to this area for the second home possibilities. Retirees from all over the nation as well as the world have come to Palm Desert and made it their homes.
