A tour though the Deepwell Estates sets the bar high for those looking for homes for sale in Palm Springs. The wide array of architectural styles feature everything from the mid-century modern designs that are so prevalent in Palm Springs to the popular environmentally “green” residences of present day. While there is a variety of landscapes, all are creative and visually stunning, making it obvious that residents take great pride in their properties. Over the years, the Deepwell Architectural Committee ensured a general standard for the aesthetics of the community, while preserving views and maintaining a residential environment—and it shows.
The name “Deepwell” was evoked by a well dug by scientist Henry Pearson in 1926 on his property. While he hit water at 100 feet, he continued drilling to 630 feet—hence, the name “Deepwell.” In 1928, the property was converted into the Deepwell Guest Ranch with accommodations for 22 guests, which inspired much of the ranching activities and horseback riding that continue to this day.
In 1952, the Deepwell Colony Estates was officially founded as a subdivision and development of the incredible community that stands today commenced. There are approximately 369 homes, including 19 Biltmore residences. The community is filled with social events and many residences jog, cycle and walk their dogs on the beautiful roads where they often meet and get to know their neighbors. It only takes sense that so many celebrities have been drawn to the stylish Deepwell community over the years, such as Tippi Hedren, Loetta Young, William Holden, Eva Gabor, Carmen Miranda, Jerry Lewis, Liz Taylor, Richard Burton and Eddie Fisher, among others.
