Gold Nugget Awards Spotlight Skye Palm Springs As The Standout Of Desert Luxury Home Market

May 26th 2017

Four Gold Nugget Awards of Merit now showcase the proven appeal of Skye Palm Springs, where luxury homebuyers continue to make this downtown enclave a resounding success. Skye builder Woodbridge Pacific Group (WPG) reports 20 sales since the January model opening, with the 40-home collection on target for final sales by late fall, according to WPG Principal Todd Cunningham.

“Skye’s buyers are searching for compelling design appeal in a preferred location, and we are delighted to offer both to the Palm Springs new home market,” said Cunningham.“Recognition in a program as prestigious as Gold Nugget validates our pride in Skye’s design program, and we are sincerely gratified by the Awards of Merit bestowed by Gold Nugget judges.”

The Gold Nugget Awards recognize those who improve our communities through exceptional concepts in design, planning and development. Homebuilding’s oldest and most prestigious competition, the 54th annual program invited entrants from throughout the U.S. and internationally. See www.goldnuggetawards.com.

Each of Skye Palm Springs’ three model home designs earned a Gold Nugget Merit Award, while the five-design enclave took a Merit as Residential Project of the Year for detached housing. These four honorees are eligible for a Gold Nugget Grand Award, to be announced June 29, when homebuilding professionals from throughout the U.S. celebrate Merit and Grand Award winners as part of PCBC in San Diego.

To create the award-winning Skye Palm Springs collection, Cunningham worked closely with esteemed architect Samir Hannouche. WPG turned to Chameleon Design for model home interiors that would showcase each design in distinctive, mid century style.

“Mid century architecture is a Palm Spring classic, for many good reasons,” said Cunningham. “The mountain backdrop, the indoor/outdoor lifestyle and the desert tradition of organic materials—all are ideal for the simplicity, transparency and easy-living spaces that define mid century homes.”

Skye homes feature 12-foot ceilings that run uninterrupted to the exterior in main activity areas, creating a sheltered outdoor area as a unified extension of interior space. They are highlighted by floor to ceiling glass walls that are actually sliding panels.

“At Skye Palm Springs, our goal was to meld this transparency with the contemporary luxury of spacious great rooms, gourmet kitchens and elegant master suites,” noted Hannouche. Visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BEoSrRKwfJk for a video preview of Skye Palm Springs.

Priced from the mid $1 millions, Skye’s 5 designs provide 3,322 to 3,976 square feet of living space. Homesites are approximately 14,000 to 19,000 square feet, easily accommodating each home’s price-included pool and spa. Home offices, media and game rooms, dual master suites, casitas and flex rooms highlight Skye’s many lifestyle-focused optional spaces.

Integral to this lifestyle appeal is Skye’s scenic, walkable location. Framed by the San Jacinto Mountains, the enclave is in Palm Springs’ historic Tennis Club Neighborhood. The Art Museum, Convention Center and Village Fest are among walkable destinations, while nearby trails and picnic areas offer spectacular views to the city and Tahquitz Canyon.

“Skye provides the opportunity to enjoy the best of everything in Palm Springs—beautiful mid century aesthetics with updated plans and features, in an iconic, walkable downtown neighborhood,” said Cunningham. “The opportunity to honor an incomparable location with award-winning homes is something everyone involved with Skye truly appreciates.”
