The Movie Colony
Feb 3, 2006 - 08:11 AMBounded by Tamarisk Road on the north, Alejo on the south, Indian Canyon on the west and Avenida Caballeros on the east, the "Movie Colony" in central Palm Springs is steeped in history and glamour from the days when Hollywood stars flocked to the Village to build weekend hideaway retreats. This area offers great views of the San Jacinto Mountains and is chock-full of luxury gated and walled homes, Spanish villas and mid-century modern estates, all within a short walking distance of downtown. Many houses have guest casitas or private visitor quarters, and most are on tree-lined streets with mature landscaping, including palm trees, fruit trees and exotic flowers.
