An international architect brought vision, style, and artistic living to this fairway gem at The Vintage Club.
Across the globe, Jon Jerde designed just three private homes during his high-profile career. The once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own one of them is only magnified by the extraordinary experience it offers the moment one steps inside. Renowned worldwide for his visionary commercial architecture —from the Bellagio and Wynn Las Vegas to celebrated landmarks in Shanghai, Tokyo, Amsterdam, Dubai, and the park that is now Disneyland Paris —the late Jerde, along with his wife, Janice Ambry Jerde, made an incomparable statement with this residential achievement.
The Vintage Club and a lot on the signature 16th hole of the Mountain Course served as picturesque muses for the 7-bedroom, 11-bath estate at 47475 Vintage Drive East. Meticulously executed by DeWitte Construction and a group of expert craftsmen, the multi-level, approximately 10,000-square-foot masterpiece is nothing short of architectural brilliance. This awe-inspiring project stands as a creative collaboration between architect, designer, builder, and owner. With this home that masterfully encompasses stunning views from every angle, Jerde shaped a legacy like none other at The Vintage Club. To tour it is to fall under its spell.
The home’s most remarkable feature is quite possibly the unfurling grand hallway known as “The Gallery.” Carefully placed atrium windows frame natural vistas along its curved wall, while custom-designed sconces light and guide your way. On the main level, custom furniture and area rugs beckon under an 18-foot barrel ceiling in the fairway-view great room. The formal dining room’s gold leaf ceiling details, mirrors and gold leaf dining chairs around a custom limestone dining table – all designed to reflect a candlelit ambiance. A gourmet-style kitchen, well-heated al fresco dining loggia, walk-up bar, formal and informal powder rooms, and cozy family room come together in a layout with beautiful flow. In the master suite, a fireplace and private patio enhance this finely appointed retreat, complete with floor-to-ceiling glass, his and hers baths, two custom-designed offices, and a beverage bar. Two ensuite guest rooms and a two-bedroom guest quarters with shared sitting room provide gracious accommodations.
On the lower level, a climate-controlled walk-in wine cellar accommodates over 1,000 bottles and joins a media room with theater-style seating. A pool table, working kitchen, massage room, six-person steam room, full bath, fully equipped gym, wrapping-craft room, and guest quarters complete this level. The subterranean 3-car, 2-golf-cart garage is finished with air conditioning, a workshop, and plentiful storage.
Panoramic views abound from the grassy lawn, pool, spa, and fire ledge. Timeless and elegant, the home is a both legend and an inviting, livable work of art. Tucked into a cove at the base of Eisenhower Mountain in Indian Wells, The Vintage Club has set the gold standard among private country club communities over its illustrious history.
Extensive amenities include an architecturally acclaimed clubhouse, two 18-hole, Tom Fazio-designed championship golf courses, a tennis complex with 11 courts including pickle ball, a resort-style pool and cabana area, numerous dining venues, a convenience market with coffee bar, and a Fitness/Wellness/Spa facility. At this prestigious enclave, security is paramount to ensure safety and peace of mind to all Members and their guests.
