Occupying a half-acre lot in the heart of Joshua Tree, California, the 880-square-foot Casa Mariposa was built in 2020 but channels midcentury flair with its butterfly roof and textured wood cladding. Attached to the rear of the structure is an 800-square-foot carport and pergola, which offer a phenomenal view of the coveted bouldering area, Coyote Hole.
Inside, the two-bed, two-bath home features an open layout that merges the main living areas. Tall, slender windows nestled side by side usher in plentiful natural light, which effortlessly filters throughout the interior. Floor-to-ceiling shelving in the living room provides ample storage for books and memorabilia, contrasting with the surrounding white walls.
Steps away from the living room is the open kitchen, anchored by a long marble-topped island. With all-new appliances—including a retro fridge—the room features a playful, pink-tile backsplash that complements the patterned wallpaper and overhead pendant lighting.
Designer wallpaper continues into the hallway and baths. The two bedrooms are situated on the rear of the residence, offering tranquil corners in which to unwind and relax. Keep scrolling to see more of the home, currently listed for $650,000.
Casa Mariposa is also offered with the option to purchase the structure fully furnished, allowing it to be a turn-key ready home or short-term rental property.
