*INSTAGRAM: @villakuro #villakuro Villa Kuro sits elevated on 3.6 acres in front of a boulder mountain (which is adjacent to thousands of acres of National Park land) with 270 degree views of the desert, vistas, mountains and city lights. The property is dotted with mature desert landscaping and Joshua Trees. There are multiple outdoor living areas including a private 600 square foot rock and cactus garden courtyard, a covered patio with outdoor dining, and amenities such as a salt water hot tub, outdoor shower and propane fire pit. The 1960's mid-century style home has been extensively renovated inside and out, transforming it into a unique desert hideaway. The focus was to maximize indoor-outdoor living, with all rooms featuring sliders to the outdoors, and windows inside perfectly frame the views outside. The earthy interior evokes a calming and serene feeling by the use of natural materials throughout the home to bring texture and depth to every corner. Designed with tranquility and relaxation in mind, Villa Kuro is a minimal organic modern hideaway fusing natural simplicity with contemporary luxuries. Highlights: - 270 degree views of the desert, vistas, mountains and city lights - Unique boulder mountain on the property that sits behind the home - Desert landscaping with Joshua Trees and native fauna - Multiple outdoor spaces - Centrally located, eleven minute drive to the west entrance of Joshua Tree National Park and six minutes to downtown Joshua Tree where all the shops and restaurants are - Adjacent to thousands of acres of national park land and a 5 minute walk away from a free trailhead owned by the Mojave Land Trust

Stanley and his team at Villa Kuro were incredibly accommodating and wonderful to work with. Not only is the location breathtaking and methodically decorated, but it is also surrounded by incredible nature. We would highly recommend this location to anyone who is looking to work with a true professional or just looking for a beautiful space to create art.
