Rancho Mirage Real Estate
Ranked as one of the top-tier cities in the United States, the city of Rancho Mirage is distinguished by its legendary popularity with United States Presidents and its unrivaled medical resources. Only a two-hour drive from Los Angeles, Rancho Mirage lies nestled between the Santa Rosa Mountains on the South and the breathtaking San Jacinto Range on the West. It is one of the Palm Springs area’s most prestigious populations with world-class medical facilities and dazzling estates. Incorporated in 1973, the city is well-known for its beautiful Cove communities and no less than nine exclusive country clubs.
Among the most famous and historic residences in this elegant enclave is Sunnylands, the magnificent mid-century architectural masterpiece of Walter and Leonore Annenberg. Sprawling over 200 acres, with a private 9-hole golf course and 11 lakes, on the north side of town, SunnyLands has played host to several Presidents and their families, a bevy of Hollywood celebrities and some of the most important corporate executives in the world. The Annenberg estate is now open to the public and offers a year-round calendar of exciting events and activities.
Just a mile or so up Bob Hope Drive from Sunnylands sits the globally lauded Eisenhower Medical Center, which houses the eminent Betty Ford Center for substance abuse. Both President and Mrs. Ford made their last home in Rancho Mirage and were active community members.
Rancho Mirage is a philanthropically-focused and cultural mecca, with the Barbara Sinatra Children’s Center, Tolerance Education Center, the Children’s Discovery Museum of the Desert, the Braille Institute, the Rancho Mirage Writer’s Festival, and many others, all making their home there.
