Maybe it’s the stunning vistas of the national park or perhaps it’s the desert light, but Joshua Tree, California, encapsulates a special kind of cool beauty. This Instagram-ready desert oasis is far away from Los Angeles for convenience, yet feels miles apart from the urban hustle.

Take this three-bedroom, one-bath listing built in 1964. Located near downtown Joshua Tree but high enough to take advantage of national park and valley views, the modestly sized house packs a lot of midcentury style into 1,307 square feet.

A main house includes two bedrooms and one bath with a fireplace, large windows, and an upgraded, minimalist kitchen. The living room looks out onto a compact patio and a one-bedroom guest pod, while small details like built-in cabinets and a sleek desk nook add custom charm.

Ready to flee to the desert? 61494 Adobe Drive is on the market now for $379,000.
