Success of Sales at District at The Edge leaves Two Homes Available in Phase Two

Cathedral City, California

The District at the Edge new home communityOne of the most exciting new home communities to offer a modern and fresh new look for desert homebuyers is District at The Edge. Since its recent opening, all but two of the homes in phase one and phase two have been sold. With interest as high as it has been, the sales team at District expect these last two homes to be sold this week, prior to the release of a new phase.

Conveniently located near the Tahquitz Creek Golf Course that straddles Palm Springs and Cathedral City, District is a statement of fact and a nod to what its developers call the best of both worlds.

This modern new home community is designed for the homebuyer who appreciates modern architecture that makes a statement and will offer a choice of three furnished models in a private gated community.

We feel District at The Edgte is in one of the best locations in the valley —sitting literally on the border of South Palm Springs and southwest Cathedral City. You are within walking distance of Trader Joe's, Starbucks, the Target plaza, fine dining, and the golf course—and only about five miles to the heart of downtown Palm Springs," stated Mario J. Gonzales, President of GHA Companies.

The community is comprised of 47 single family homes and features The Edge Club, that houses a 40-foot lap pool, large spa, outdoor showers, his-and-hers changing rooms, and an outdoor grill area. Canine residents and their parents will also be able to take advantage of a dog park and a perimeter walking green belt.

Three home plans — dubbed, respectively, Soho, Tribeca, and Eastside — seamlessly meld midcentury and contemporary elements into a singular hybrid. Buyers can get their first look at the homes in three fully furnished models, one for each floor plan this weekend.

Living spaces range in size from 1,777 sq. ft. with two bedrooms and 2.5 baths up to 2,199 sq. ft. with three bedrooms and 3 baths.

The easy-living interiors boast open spaces, 8-foot doors and 9- to 10-foot ceilings, multi slide doors, a social kitchen, and nicely sized master and guest room suites. The model homes will feature clean-line furniture with classic midcentury pieces scattered throughout.

Outside, each home has a private pool and spa, as well as front, side, and rear landscaping, included in the price. Covered lanais will be prewired for sound and outfitted with a ceiling fan. Homebuyers may choose additional upgrades including a built-in grill, fire pit, and water features.
