The sale is being handled Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty, which calls the house "unbelievable enchanting" in its listing.

"Upon entering the light-filled, opulent home, guests are greeted by smooth plaster walls, gorgeous hardwood floors, double archways leading into the stunning kitchen, and a dining space overlooking the lush backyard and guest house. The home’s garden-chic interior compliments the desert surroundings," Russ Lyon says in a press release.

According to Zillow, the couple bought the house for $315,000 in November 2016. Its current selling price? $700,000.

There's no word yet on where the New Darlings are moving to, but in a press release, Christina Martinez says, "We are sad to be leaving this house but we are excited to find new owners that will appreciate it as much as we do.”
