As you drive into the development, you’re greeted by the whimsical work of noted southwest sculptor, Joe Tyler. Next, you’ll notice the extensive waterways, there are over eight acres of lakes that meander through the property, the perfect accent to the dramatic mountain views.
The homes complement the desert environment and create a personal sanctuary with their spacious covered patios and intimate courtyards. This seamless transition between indoors and outdoors, homes and landscape, is an ideal setting for entertaining family and friends surrounded by vibrant colors, scenic mountains and calming waters. In addition, textures and expertly crafted features are Palmilla’s signature – coffered ceilings, slab granite, rich woods, stone fireplaces, tiled floors and rich carpeting are key elements of each home. No wonder more than half the owners live here year-round.
Palmilla received the Builder’s Choice Merit Award as “Best Single-family Detached Community in the U.S.” Palmilla also won four architectural awards for “Best Designed Homes in the Nation” in 2002 in a competition sponsored by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and Professional Builder magazine.
