Located on a quiet cul-de-sac in N. La Quinta, you'll find this lovely updated 3 BR, 2 BA + den home with over 1600 SF of living space. The gated courtyard leads into a spacious living room, with high vaulted ceilings and comfortable family room with a raised stone fireplace. The open design kitchen has a quartz island and counters all-around, newer cabinets, custom travertine backsplash, stainless appliances and large pantry. The inviting Master suite features wood-look tile floors, vaulted ceilings, walk-in closet and sliders that open to the back patio. The master bath has dual vanities, separate tub and shower. The 2nd and 3rd bedrooms provide loads of additional space, comfort and privacy for family or weekend guests. The den/media room is accessible off the living room. Extras include a laundry closet, ceiling fans, 2-car garage, and maybe best of all...NO HOA fees! Stepping outside is a lattice-covered patio, multiple seating areas, privacy wall and room to add a pool and spa. This move-in-ready and updated property has so much to offer, and could work as a year-round residence or a vacation getaway. Known as the ''Gem of the Desert,'' the City of La Quinta is home to award winning schools as well as world class tennis, golf, shopping and dining.
