Sleep on a Floating Bed in This Ultra-Modern Desert Home


The master suite of this ridiculously over the top ultra-modern home outside Palm Springs was featured on HGTV's "Million Dollar Rooms," and it's easy to see why it was selected for the show: It's huge at over 1,000 square feet, it's got a floating bed with a $10,000 mattress, and the bathtub is surrounded by an indoor/outdoor water feature. And if for some reason soaking in a tub with a moat doesn't do it for you, you can always jump in one of the dual open-to-the-outside showers and hope the neighbors aren't out walking the dog.

Designed by architect Brian Foster as his personal residence, the three-bedroom, 4½-bathroom home in Rancho Mirage, Calif., doesn't limit its oddball luxury amenities to the master suite. The retro-futuristic (i.e., dated) great room features polished concrete floors with built-in water features and indoor cactus gardens, and there's even a glass tabletop resting on a huge boulder.

Outdoor desert living comes inside the 5,200 square-foot-home with glass walls that slide open and lead to the yard, where there's an infinity pool and "futuristic" design elements, including a fire pit and an outdoor media center, not to mention beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and desert.

When all the geometry, water, and fire gets to be a bit much, the home helpfully comes with an agreement with the adjacent Ritz Carlton which, according to the $5,999,777 listing, allows the owner to "live the Five Star Resort Lifestyle using the amenities of the Ritz such as room service, concierge, laundry, spa, gym, pools, Edge Steak House and much more."
