Property description

Mid-century Alexander “Butterfly” in Twin Palms

An original 1957 Palmer & Krisel designed, mid-century modern home in the iconic butterfly design. This home is thoroughly renovated and furnished in modern, yet comfortable design in a relatively windless side of southern Palm Springs in a very quiet neighborhood. A stunning renovation to the kitchen was done on the summer of 2014, creating an open concept space for the dining, living room and kitchen area.

Large, flat screen panel high definition TV in living room with stereo with iPod connection, Nintendo Wii game including Guitar Hero and many other games, DVD player with a selection of DVD's and cable TV. High speed wireless internet access throughout house. All the furniture is new and includes designers Eames and George Nelson. All three bedrooms feature their own flat panel high def TV’s, high ceilings and lots of closet space with full-length mirrors. This is a non-smoking home.

The large and very private yard has a perfect sized, deep pool with patio, large heated spa seating 6 and an impressive outdoor gas fire pit for those slightly chilly nights. Plenty of patio chairs, tables and lounges for outdoor relaxation and dining. Pick the most delicious grapefruit right from the tree. This back yard is South facing which is the most desirable and provides direct sun all day with magnificent 180 degree views of the San Jacinto mountains.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

Why the Owner Chose Twin Palms:
Twin Palms is a architecturally significant neighborhood being that it was the first of the Palmer Krisel designs and the first time his iconic Butterfly design was revealed. Beyond the historic significance is that south of Palm Springs downtown gets longer sun hours and very low wind (very important) compared to the equally popular neighborhood of Las Palmas.
