Welcome to the gated community of Dorado Villas, one of the best locations and values in the heart of Indian Wells! This lovely home provides a desirable open and airy layout that flows comfortably from the living and dining spaces to the 3 bedrooms, each with its own private patio. One bedroom is currently being used as a den and can easily be reconverted to a bedroom. The living room features a vaulted ceiling, a sit-down bar, and a cozy fireplace framed with a pop of brick-red color. The dining room has a striking wood plank and beam ceiling painted in brilliant white. The home was beautifully updated in 2006 with neutral tile flooring, plantation shutters, a remodeled kitchen, and a partially remodeled master bath. Bright and bold colors are featured in every room, but should the buyer prefer a more neutral and contemporary color palette, it's as easy as a fresh coat of paint! The extended back patio is accessible from the living room, dining room, and kitchen breakfast area. It is a wonderful space to enjoy mountain views as well as the community pool which is just steps away-swimming and relaxation are close at hand! Dorado Villas is in close proximity to The Vintage and Eldorado Country Clubs and offers 9 pools and 10 tennis courts - one of which converts to two pickleball courts. It's the perfect seasonal home or family/guest retreat!
