While researching our monthly for sale post, we came across this gorgeous 1982 double wide in California that has been renovated to create a classic and timeless style. Here’s a look at the listing:

  • Welcome to The Colony in Rancho Mirage, CA!! WOW! This unit is on a very private lot and has a unique floor plan with a huge great room and a fireplace. A large separate living and dining room includes the desirable beamed and vaulted ceilings. The design and size of this unit allow for an ideal separation between bedrooms. The huge primary suite has a large (his and hers style) walk-in closet. The stunning primary bathroom, which has been remodeled, boasts a large walk-in and doorless shower with very modern updates. The kitchen is updated with a gorgeous tile backsplash, cabinets painted a modern color, and stainless steel appliances. The in-unit laundry room has tons of storage and enough room to add a desk for a great office location. 2 bedroom and 2 bath with 2,036 square feet, this home is listed for $349,000.

What’s not to love about this renovation?

Even before this 1982 double wide was remodeled, it already had several awesome features on its side. First off, it featured vaulted ceilings, which are a big plus for any home. Also, the home features a unique floor plan that includes a fireplace. Finally, at over 2,000 square feet, this home has plenty of space for entertaining.

It’s no wonder that a home with so much potential would be transformed into a showplace of classic style. The owners were able to keep much of the original charm while giving it an update that wows.

By covering up the typically dark paneling throughout the home and transforming it into a light and bright space without having to remove the paneling, they took the money they saved and tore out the master bath and give it a dramatic facelift.

We also love how the furnishings complete the stylish look of this 1982 double wide. The right furniture placement, a great use of area rugs, lots of cool lighting, along with just the right amount of pops of color complete this remodel.


So much open space.
Large windows add natural light.
The original built-ins remain.

Lots of curb appeal.

Remodels like this 1982 double wide are the reason we love what we do. And, as we have always shared, never underestimate the power of paint! Even if you are under an extremely tight budget, paint can make a drastic change in your home and give you immediate results.

As always, we thank you for reading Mobile Home Living®.
