The House

When I bought this home my friends in Paris stated: „Eggert bought himself a David Hockney house.” “Okay”, I thought. “Let’s make this a David Hockney house.” So I started modelling everything onto Hockney’s famous blue house in the Hollywood Hills: A blue living room, blue fire place, blue furniture, a blue outdoor living room. California pools a blue anyway and the Palm Springs sky is blue 330 days per year.

The Designer’s Guild Wallpaper is imported from Europe and the funky color scheme of the house actually derives from the Wallpaper.

This 1203 square foot house offers two bedrooms and two bathroom. The bedrooms are located on opposite sides of the house which is ideal for sharing or accommodating guests over longer periods. Each bedroom comes with a walk-in closet.

The fully equipped kitchen opens with a breakfast bar to the living room. Behind the kitchen you find a storage room with washer and dryer.

On the back the house offers a beautiful tropical Garden. The garden is completely surrounded by white and pink Oleanders. There is quite a variety of Palm trees: Washingtonia, Date Palm, Queen Palms, Mexican Fan Palm, Bismarck Nobilis and others. Plumerias in pink and white, Bougainvillea also in pink and white and gigantic Birds of Paradise provide a tropical vibe in the desert.

There is a 35 foot lap pool. The pool has a conventional gas heating system and a solar heating system. Separate from the pool on a different patio you find a whirlpool. There is also an outdoor shower with an industrial type shower head.

The house a has a shaded outdoor living area with a misting system. Separate from this sitting area you will find a cabana-like area for al fresco dining. There is an outdoor kitchen with a built in barbecue and a dining table that sits up to ten guests.

There is a shaded carport for one vehicle and outside parking for several more vehicles.
