The rugged peaks of the San Jacinto Mountain Reserve provide a visual contrast to this sleek desert dwelling found near the heart of Old Palm Springs. Built for James Callahan, designer to the stars and the Sultan of Brunei, the contemporary residence keeps the eye moving with a mix of clean lines, cool angles and modern finishes. Walls of glass open to reveal an oasis-like setting with a pool, spa and outdoor kitchen, and across to a separate guest house complete with a wet bar and kitchenette.
