An artistic retreat in the desert owned by TV personality, Huell Howser. The 2,221 sq. ft. ranch sits on 12 acres of untouched desert to offer a feeling of total seclusion just under an hour out of Palm Springs. This home combines an eclectic collection of found materials and repurposed objects with mid-century modern architecture. Honoring the communal spirit encouraged by Howser, The Wheelhouse has become a place for celebrations, gatherings, and creative retreats. Artists have used the home to write, draw, meditate or practice yoga. Photographers have used the space for creative shoots. And couples have made the retreat their own, taking their vows against the rocky cliffs and desert brush that surround the home.
