If you’re looking to own property in the trendy desert hotspot of Joshua Tree, California, the newly listed Wonder Ranch may be of interest. Set on a 10-acre parcel—with 1.5 acres fenced—the 2,052-square-foot desert oasis has been completely renovated, inside and out.
A spacious, open layout now ties together the primary living areas in the 1957 structure. Crisp white walls wrap the interior, complementing the broad, exposed beams lining the ceilings. Polished concrete floors amp up the home’s allure.
Steps away from the living and dining areas is a large kitchen, complete with all-new appliances and custom-built wooden countertops. A picture window above the sink frames captivating views of the surrounding Mojave Desert and Sheephole Mountains—two landmarks which can be seen from several vantage points throughout the home.
In total, the dwelling features two bedrooms and two baths. Sliding glass doors open the interiors up to the covered patio off the rear of the home. Also outside is a hot tub and an agave cactus garden, as well as a converted bunkhouse.
Designed for entertaining, the refinished space includes a handcrafted redwood bar, a professional ping-pong table, and six queen-size, triple bunkbeds—allowing the building to comfortably host large groups.
In addition to being sold fully furnished, the abode also includes 24-hour security cameras, and an in-ground well. "This 10-acre property offers a relaxing and entertaining ranch like no other," says listing agent Jordan Bridges. "Each morning and evening the home is greeted with the most striking sunrise and colorful sunset. With few neighbors nearby, you can enjoy the abundance of peace and natural that comes with this setting."
Last sold in 2020, the home now finds itself back on the market. "Initially, the original plan was not to sell the Wonder Ranch. The owner saw the property as a perfect getaway," says Bridges. "Yet renovating the space sparked interest to reimagine other properties in the near future, so they’ve decided to let this residence go."
3659 Wilson Road in Twentynine Palms, California, is currently listed for $749,999 by Jordan Bridges of Sotheby’s International Realty – Sunset Strip Brokerage.
