3 Echo exemplifies the next generation of classic architecture for the fashion-forward desert lifestyle. Past the gates, this nine-residence enclave designed by Sean Lockyer unfolds in a grove of old-growth olive trees and a street laid by hand in dovetail charcoal-gray paver stones. Hardwood and large-format concrete floors pair with Fleetwood doors and windows creating a striking interaction between home and nature. Native flora edges up to the living areas to further join the two. European-style touches in the kitchens and bathrooms include Thermador appliances, Sub-Zero refrigerators, marble countertops and contemporary lighting. Mountainous panoramas are framed by expansive walls of glass in the spacious great room and primary bedroom, engaging the distant vista. Modern style and amenities are integrated, from indirect skylights to bathe the walls in natural light to intuitive separations of space. Slumpstone block perimeter walls speak to conjure the Italian countryside, complemented by old growth olives trees, boulders, and natural rock outcroppings. Echo chose to make its mark in Rancho Mirage, an esteemed and elegant community favored by presidents, philanthropic entrepreneurs, and Hollywood's elite. Fine dining, tennis, shopping, world-class resort spas, entertainment, and hiking are all minutes from this central location in the valley.
Scott recently broke the record for highest price per square foot for a home on leased land in Palm Springs. The architecture, endless sunshine, and wide open spaces of Palm Springs -- its central location between the beaches, the mountains and larger cities -- provide the perfect sandbox for Scott to engage his passions.
