“Marrakech? I thought we were in the city of Palm Desert, California, which, though exceptionally livable by most standards, isn’;t a luxury destination of that caliber!” That seems to be what this kind of intense Palm Desert mansion is going for.

Built over 4 years by a “cutting-edge architectural team and a group of skilled Moroccan craftsmen,” the 16,800-square-foot mansion known as Casbah Cove is part of the “luxious [sic] Big Horn Golf Club cummunity [sic].” Older marketing materials called this resort community “more ‘hip’; than hip replacement,” which: no. Please just stop.

The asking price for more “opulent amenities” and traditional Moroccan architectural silhouettes than you can count is $ 24,500,000.
