We had the chance to check out a few "common interest" houses in Palm Springs (Kings Point) this weekend. A bit like a condo, these homes have shared public spaces and pools — but like a house, they have no adjoining walls and each seems to be a slight bit different. While stepping into them felt a bit Kubrick-esque with all of the white finishes, they were really neat.
And they were huge — twice the size of some Eichlers and something we did not expect from a condo-esque house. For instance, the last two images are taken in the same room from nearly the same spot (taken in opposite directions)... that bedroom is larger than many family rooms.
While the lack of true "back yard" would be a bit of a deal-breaker for me as a full-time home, it's perfect for someone who has fewer projects or for someone looking for a retirement/vacation spot.
It was getting a bit dark, so photos were a bit hard... check out the realtor's site for more detail and better images.
