Sim Bruce Richards' Stunning Borrego Springs Compound

Welcome back springtime! It's another season of Weekend Getaways, where we look at homes within driving distance (or maybe a little further) of Los Angeles that are on the market for you to ogle, then buy.


Location: 1471 Borrego Springs Rd, Borrego Springs
Price: $1,348,500
Size: 3,290 sq. ft. on 4.7 acre lot

There are so many hidden gems in the desert. Like this one which we encourage you to buy now or be priced out forever and ever. Architect Sim Bruce Richards trained at Taliesin (East) under Frank Lloyd Wright and became known for his contributions to the Arts and Craft movement. Most of his work can be found in San Diego and La Jolla, and occasionally in the desert where he worked with adobe. This Borrego Springs home, also known as Vide Descansada, was built in 1970 and features "expansive living, dining and entertaining areas and 3 private bedroom suites." It also includes a cloverleaf shaped pool-spa, not to mention some crazy nice views of the mountains and the Anza Borrego Desert.
