New to the market in Yucca Valley, California, is an alluring stucco cabin that recently underwent a top-down renovation. Measuring 688 square feet, the small yet charming home shines with an all-white interior and brightly colored designer finishes.

Just a short drive away from Joshua Tree National Park sits this darling two-bedroom cabin. Palm trees dot the 2.5-acre lot while an outdoor seating area provides an intimate setting to take in the surrounding Mojave Desert.

Polished cement floors run throughout, connecting the living and dining areas to an upgraded kitchen, where a vibrant, geometric backsplash takes center stage.

While set in the middle of Mojave Desert, the home is within easy driving distance of both Palm Springs and Coachella Valley, not to mention the ever-popular Joshua Tree National Park just right down the road.
