Mountain Center Estate Is a Desert Oasis (House of the Day)

Clearly, nothing beats a desert property! This week's #housepornthurs winner is perhaps reflective of our collective readers' desire to be in a warm, sunny and dry climate right now -- and where better than by the pool of this luxurious Mountain Center, Calif., retreat?

We're talking massive windows that frame panoramic canyon, city and mountain views. Pair that with tasteful wood accents, charming ranch-style decor and modern luxury amenities (a media room, tennis court and spa, for starters) and you have yourself an 11,000-square-foot desert oasis. This home in Southern California's Riverside County may be worth $9 million, but its "restorative" powers? Priceless.

Richard Bartholomew and Jane Dorian of Partners Trust Properties have the listing.
