Property description

This Palm Springs Mid-century Palmer/Kriesel designed butterfly roof home built by George Alexander is located in one of Palm Springs first Mid-Century Modern neighborhoods called Racquet Club Estates (one mile from downtown)..
The open floor plan features concrete floors, high vaulted beam ceilings with clerestory mountain view windows and glass sliders overlooking the new kidney shaped saltwater pool and jacuzzi/spa. The Pool has a 6 foot tanning ledge with a built in umbrella sleeve for shade while lounging. The entire outdoor living area was designed and realized by a landscape artist with as much care as the interior; including the outdoor shower, cabana bar, fire-pit, putting green and fruit trees..

It is important to note that we are a full 1,000 square feet larger than the traditional Alexander home because we enclosed the breezeway adding onto our kitchen/dining room and extending our master bedroom/bathroom/office.

As you enter the house into the foyer, you will be impressed by the floor to ceiling painting that leads you into the ''great room''. The concrete floors are softened in the living room by a large cream shag rug with furnishings designed by Futurama and embellished by our coveted 50's collection of Blue Blenko glassware. All bedrooms have desert hued low pile carpeting. The living room seating faces the original block fireplace which is commanded by a stunning commissioned piece of art we call ''LOU'', who has become our mascot. His image repeats in various locations throughout the property...see if you can spot him.
To the right of the great room, is our sparkling showpiece 1960's lucite formal dining room table for six. The entertainment ''vibe'' continues with our open kitchen boasting granite counter tops with mosaic glass tile back-splash.
A large mobile island faces the kitchen's overhead HDTV flat screen where you can sit on comfortable leather bar stools to watch a great sport event or just keep the chef in the family company. The kitchen is complete with stainless steel appliances, a full line of Cuisinart-blender-juicer-coffee maker and all the cooking utensils needed for any gourmet. We provide a Nespresso Machine too but don't forget to bring the pods! You will also find complete place settings for 8 in both plastic for outdoor dining and ceramic and glass for indoor dining all complemented by vintage starburst patterned flatware.
The first bedroom is furnished with a new platform queen bed mattress purchased specifically for fibromialgia sufferers and incredibly comfortable for all. This room includes an HDTV, 70's Italian travertine marble tables, 60's bedside lamps and a fur throw and Jonathan Adler bench.
The smallest bedroom hosts Case Study sofas that become twin beds along with a fabulous Panton 60s Bubble Mirror, HDTV, a kitschy Arne Jacobsen chair and the biggest lamp you've ever seen! Check out the closet where we store board games.
The Master bedroom features a floor to ceiling white leather headboard which flanks a king-size platform bed facing the HDTV/DVD with surround sound. There is an en-suite bathroom with a shower for two and a walk in closet. The master also features a chaise lounge sitting/office area with a fax/printer. The bedroom sliders lead you outdoors to the fruit trees, raised ledge gas fire pit with turquoise glass and the putting green.
Some of the design elements that make the house special are the commissioned art in every room, the professionally landscape, furnished and illuminated grounds, the privacy of the fenced backyard with outdoor shower and cabana, the spectacular view and all this with your own personal concierge.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I started my love affair with Palm Springs back in the 80's when I was a student at UCLA and spent long weekend getaways here. The desert climate and my interest in Mid Century architecture cemented my yearning to own a home in this little jewel-box of a city. I looked at potential homes to purchase for a good 10 years before I found 'Rendevous Lou'!

Why the Owner Chose Racquet Club Estates:
LOVE the restored mid century designed homes throughout this neighborhood...one of the best!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is one of the spectacular Mid Century Alexander homes that you can view the mountains while INSIDE the house through the clerestory windows!!!!.
