One of the more unique residential communities of Rancho Mirage, California, is Mirada Estates, which balances peaceful living with convenience. Located 600 feet about the valley floor, residents here enjoy breathtaking scenery of the valley and city lights.
This guard-gated community looks down at the nearby Ritz Carlton Hotel that offers many amenities to its neighboring residents. These luxury homes range from 4,000 to over 7,000 square feet and reflect a variety of architectural designs like contemporary and Spanish colonial. The secluded area is in the middle of over 270,000 acres of wilderness. The word “Mirada” means “look” in Spanish and the estates were named because of the spectacular 360 degree views. Designers wanted this community to blend into its environment creating an untouched look even though state-of-the-art luxury is right in the middle of it.
Homes at Mirada Estates have their own floor plans and designs that are completely unique from each other.
