The 1950 Spartan Mansion: an immaculately-restored, mind-blowing, nomadic midcentury dwelling. This shiny work of art has a rich past; she served as a rolling home for a traveling family that worked on big contract jobs around the US in the fifties. We have a copy of their self-published memoir inside.

A perfect desert homestead for your next retreat.

Our environment is our sanctuary and we enjoy sharing it with others. My partner Chris and I moved with our daughter to the high desert several years ago and we immediately fell in love with the area, its topography and wildlife, and its colorful population of artists & dreamers…
