Now’s Your Chance to Grab This Cozy-Chic California Desert Escape for Under a Million

Suddenly come into some extra cash and itching to buy a vacation home? Don’t settle for something that’s just run-of-the-mill—live it up like an A-list influencer in a one-of-a-kind SoCal abode that’s been featured in numerous design publications from Domino to Goop, just to name a couple.

Sitting smack dab in the middle of the Mojave Desert—on almost 3 remote acres of land within the famed Old West community of Pioneertown, about 25 minutes from the entrance to Joshua Tree National Park—the so-called “Casa Mami” is billed as an eco-friendly overnight retreat that doubles as a design showroom, with most of the furnishings available for purchase online; and it’s now up for grabs, asking a speck under $675,000.

Primarily used for the past five years as a rental property bringing in around $190 per night, the striking white stucco and black-trimmed structure was purchased by Carlos Naude and his wife Whitney Brown of the L.A.-based creative studio Working Holiday for $230,000 in summer 2018. The couple subsequently remodeled the place into a retreat/showroom, before selling it to the current owners for $363,500 in 2020.

Among the highlights: an open-plan kitchen outfitted with a sink, 20-inch range, black Smeg refrigerator and dining area, along with a spacious living room boasting a Malm wood-burning fireplace, Moooi Cloud Sofa by Marcel Wanders and La Cantina French doors swinging open to a gravel-bordered patio providing sweeping mountain vistas.

An added bonus: The sale includes all of the furnishings, plus an Airbnb account and Instagram site with 12,000 followers.
