Best ways to stay cool

I found an air conditioner I like for a bedroom made by Haier. It has 4 way air flow control which is important. Also has remote and digital readouts. $139 delivered from Walmart online.

Then there’s a swamp cooler for $299 also at Walmart.com that’s a flat design and would fit in a living room window. Could even work on keeping the whole house cool.

New development in Indio by DR Horton

The last few years have seen quite a few new developments pop up throughout Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage, and Palm Desert. But some interesting and innovative project are under construction down valley as well.

Hacienda Pointe is a gated community of 137 new, single-family houses by Express Homes, a D.R. Horton company, which is taking shape in North Indio.

“We recently completed our Mountain Estates community, which is located adjacent to Hacienda Pointe,” says Jonathon Smith, Horton’s South Coast/Inland Empire Division president. “We had great success [with it] and were excited for the opportunity to build another community in Indio [which] has great homebuyer demand within the Coachella Valley and is home to quality retail and recreation.”

The new community is now selling and many have already called Hacienda Pointe home.

All of the homes are single-story and they range in size from approximately 1,980 to 2,815 square feet. “Our room counts vary from three to four bedrooms and offer flexible living spaced such as dens and entertainment rooms,” says Smith.

The largest floor plan features the builder’s trademark Multigen™ layout, which has a fully functional living area complete with a private main entrance, bedroom , full bath, kitchenette, laundry, living room, and interior access to the main home.

“As the popularity and demand for multigenerational living has expanded over the past several years, it was our vision to capitalize on this trend and provide homebuyers with the space they need for their growing families,” says Smith.

There are five diverse floor plans with multiple exterior options in a cosmopolitan mix of Spanish, Mediterranean, and Southwestern architecture. “William Hezmalhalch Architects designed the homes,” notes Smith. “The exteriors were chosen based on the surrounding communities’ architectural styles.”

All of the floor plans will feature Mohawk vinyl flooring and carpet, Euro-style cabinetry with a decorative recessed door in white or Java finish, granite countertops, spacious islands, and Frigidaire white or black appliances.

Some of the other amenities include dual-glazed windows, large walk-in closets, marble countertops, and contemporary plumbing and bath fixtures.

The homes are priced from the low $300,000s.

Models are open at Hacienda Pointe from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Visit www.DRHorton.com/indio (http://www.DRHorton.com/indio) for more information, call 760-342-2093.
