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