Mojave Rock Ranch / Gino Dreese + Troy Williams


Mojave Rock Ranch nestles among 90 hectares in Joshua Tree, California, where a small stone house, various outdoor spaces, and a pool cluster around what can only be described as gorgeous desert landscaping incorporating thousands of cacti. In fact, the first thing you see is the flora, which leads you through the wild grounds — and makes you pause to think whether it isn’t a shrine to those strange succulents after all.

The landscaping (and the rest of the property) is the work of its current owners, Gino Dreese and Troy Williams, who transformed the retreat over two decades, during which they travelled the world and brought back boulders, glass, and other treasures to literally build their dream home.

Just an hour outside of Palm Springs, the one-bedroom-one-bath, originally a homestead cabin from the 1950s, is now up for sale. Located at 2015 Sunfair Road, it’s offered at $4.5 million — via Curbed
