About Sandpiper

One of the first condominium projects in the Coachella Valley was the Sandpiper in Palm Desert, California. Mid-century modern architect William Krisel designed the neighborhood and it was built in the early 1960’s. This community has the perfect balance of nature harmony with the convenience of shopping and dining just minutes away. It is located on the corner of Highway 74 and El Paseo.

When this project was designed, great care was given to environmental concerns. Today there are 306 units in this beautiful setting and each homeowner enjoys stunning views, security, and privacy. The architecture of this community reflects the late 1950’s and 1960’s. But units have been updated with the latest amenities. Improvements often include travertine floors, new bathrooms, onyx kitchen countertops and stainless steel appliances. Open living areas and vaulted ceilings give residents a beautiful view of the mountains.

The condos range from 1,000 to 3,100 square feet with one to four bedrooms. Community amenities feature pools, spas, and a putting green as well as lush landscaping. El Paseo is within walking distance and offers the valley’s best restaurants, art galleries and entertainment. It has 150 upscale boutiques and is compared to Rodeo Drive in Hollywood.

Students in this area attend highly ranked schools in the Desert Sands Unified School District including George Washington Charter School, Palm Desert Charter Middle, and Palm Desert High School.

Palm Desert has seen an influx of residents in the past years with people or “snowbirds” moving in from colder climates. This region is influenced by the surrounding mountains on three sides and valley floor, resulting in a year-round warm climate and the nation’s warmest winters. The arid climate brings an average high of 89 degrees and a low of 62. Summer highs can be above 108 and night time lows are usually above 82 in the warmer months.
