Sunmor house description

This beautifully appointed home offers five bedrooms, four baths and was professionally restored and expanded in 2006. The fifth bedroom was converted to a media room and makes a king size bed perfect for the kids when needed. Located on a quiet street in the historic Sunmor neighborhood, the main house is an exquisite Alexander mid-century home built in 1958 with breath taking views of the San Jacinto Mountains and surrounding valley. The original Alexander, being 1300 square feet was expanded to over 2,600 square feet maintaining the original post and beam, floor to ceiling glass, and character of the Alexander 'Chalet' home. The expansion and restoration of the house was done with green and recycled materials. In keeping with Alexander’s vision, meticulous consideration was taken in the design and building efficiency.

This home is centrally located with an easy 15-minute walk to downtown Palm Springs where you will find numerous restaurants, shops, and entertainment.

The home was inspired by the owners’ many years of travel and the love of Palm Springs architecture and lifestyle. The owner and designer is influenced by Southeast Asia. He chose to carry a Zen-like quality throughout the home. The grounds are exquisite with such attention to detail, that 44,000 pounds of rock were brought in from Bali, Indonesia. Being within the compound transcends you from everyday life to complete relaxation and rejuvenation.

Guests appreciate the attention to detail and comfortability whether inside or out at this Palm Springs compound. Lush fichus shrubbery provides complete privacy. Magnificent palms surround you while soaking in the hot tub. Beautiful mountain views produce a “resort” feel while staying at the “Livmor” home. The interior areas and grounds come alive at night with dramatic landscape lighting; the focal point being a 2,500 pound Buddha hand carved from Java stone. A beautiful star-filled sky without a street light in sight; you and your loved ones are sure to enjoy a perfect evening building lifetime memories at this classic compound in Palm Springs.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: I have been designing and building residential homes for 20 years. It is a passion for me. I love the element of surprise and understatement in a home. I make sure every property I have done contains those two elements along with loads of emotion. Everyone should feel something after leaving a great property.

                  Why the Owner Chose Sunmor:
                  I love the location and the traditional Alexander mid-century neighborhood. Sunmor neighborhood is quiet and well preserved. Its history relating to Palm Springs is quite amazing.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  When staying at the Livmor house you will find a peaceful tranquility. Relaxation is the key at this home. Many of the art objects on the property come from the far east. Indonesia, Vietnam and Thailand are but some of the countries art and working components of the home originate from. In fact, over 44,000 pounds of rock were brought in from Bali for this unique compound!
