The gated residential community of Mountain Gate is one of the newer neighborhoods of Palm Springs, California. The homes here were built between 2004 and 2006 by Century Vintage Homes.
The architecture of Mountain Gate is reminiscent of the Spanish and Mediterranean Styles. Most homes have two to four bedrooms, with a range in size from 1,200 to 3,000 square feet. There are separate casitas in some, as well as two and three car garages and RV parking.
Mountain Gate features many community facilities like pools, spas, tennis courts, children’s playgrounds and green belts for pets. Amenities include private pools, tile flooring, fireplaces, designer wall décor, built-in surround sound, and bathroom upgrades. The gourmet kitchens are updated with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. And homeowners love the back yards complete with barbecue pits and covered patios. The Palm Springs Unified School District offers facilities like Raymond Cree Middle School, Palm Springs High School, and highly rated Katherine Finchy Elementary.
Mountain gate is right across the street from the Palm Springs Aerial Tram way and just two miles from the downtown area of Palm Springs. The tramway is the largest rotating aerial in the world and opened in 1963 when the only way to the top of San Jacinto was by hiking several hours from Idyllwild. The aerial tramway was built to bring people from the floor of the valley to the peak.
Palm Springs offers fine dining, upscale shopping, and exciting entertainment. Palm Canyon Drive is known as the primary shopping district and offers many boutiques and design shops. The city’s economy relies heavily on tourism with more than a million visitors a year. There are over 150 hotel accommodations with more than 6,000 rooms. Outdoor enthusiasts come for the tennis, golf, swimming, horseback riding, hiking, and biking.
