An artist’s bold vision of serenity and innovation combine to create a tribute to Mother Earth. The result is this Rancho Mirage compound named Terra, meaning "earth," with 2-foot-thick walls made of rammed earth and steel rebar, and floors of compacted earth and concrete, stained with red wine. Rammed earth, a technique for building walls, foundations, and floors using natural raw materials, is a recently-revived sustainable and natural building material coming from ancient roots. This sanctuary evokes a sense of being transported to a world of your own. The estate, designed by Jim McIntosh, and completed in 2003, has a main residence that opens directly onto a fantastic salt water lagoon pool & quaint courtyard. In addition there is a separate guest house, gate house, rolling lawns, citrus trees and even a fantastic aviary. The separate 2-storied artist studio could serve many purposes--a sound studio, movie theater… This is a unique acquisition for the most serious collector.
