Set on almost five acres, the Rancho Mirage home of Oakland A’s centerfielder Coco Crisp is much more than a magnificent estate; it’s your own private 5-star resort. The compound has just been listed at $9,995,000 by Rachelle Rosten and Sally Forster Jones of John Aaroe Group.
Behind its wrought iron gates, a broad circular drive curves to an elegant porte cochere and an ample private motor court with a seven-car garage. The vast and expertly manicured grounds of 1 St. Petersburg Court offer anything and everything - encompassing a private lake with canoes, a resort level pool with grotto, and dramatic water and fire features. Other highlights include multiple arbor-shaded entertaining pavilions, bar areas and barbecue, a romantic gazebo, a tennis court, and a scaled-down baseball diamond with lighted scoreboard.
This incomparable estate, which is the ideal retreat for relaxation and quiet enjoyment, has also been perfected for entertaining on a very grand scale. The double leaded glass doors of the luxurious main residence open onto a foyer with soaring ceilings, flanked by two elegant curving staircases. A massive marble-floored Great Room with floor-to-ceiling fireplaces lies beyond and is flooded with natural light from huge windows and doors that open to the entertaining pavilions. Beautiful detailing, quality materials and fine finishes delight throughout the five-bedroom residence. The gourmet kitchen features a spacious center island with seating, a breakfast area and butler's pantry. The family room is accented by a huge fireplace and exposed beamed ceilings.
The estate also includes a luxe wood-paneled home theater, game room, library, wine room, bar, gym, elevator and built-in saltwater fish tank. The private upstairs level is highlighted by a master suite with indoor hot tub and sauna. The Control4 smart home also features a state-of-the-art irrigation and water conservation system.
The compound includes a detached two-bedroom, two-bath guest house with living area and full kitchen. With all the privacy for a celebrity buyer and almost every conceivable amenity, 1 St. Petersburg is the ideal playground paradise for anyone seeking the ultimate luxury experience.
The property is located moments from prestigious country clubs including Mission Hills and Desert Island Country Club, and a short drive from Rancho Mirage shops and dining. The Coachella music and events grounds are just 25 minutes away. This is an unprecedented opportunity to live the desert resort lifestyle in ultimate serenity and privacy.
