Los Compadres house description

Experience a dazzling example of desert Mid-Century Modern architecture at this authentic Alexander vacation home that was collaboratively designed and constructed by renowned California architects Palmer & Krisel, and developer Robert Alexander.

This “Alexander” midcentury modern vacation house is located in Palm Springs' tranquil Little Beverly Hills neighborhood, and is situated directly along the Mesquite Golf & Country Club golf course. This rare protected view lot boasts spectacular, unobstructed views of the San Jacinto Mountains, as well as acres of palm trees that fill the grassy fairways of the award-winning PGA golf course out front.

The home showcases iconic angular desert Mid-Century Modern architecture, which includes an open concept floor plan, vaulted high ceilings, and unique exposed wood beams and natural ceiling planks. The floor-to-ceiling walls of glass create a bright, airy indoor ambiance that merge indoor living with the outdoor desert. Experience breathtaking views of the San Jacinto Mountains from one side, and the tranquil, private garden and swimming pool oasis on the other.

This spacious three-bedroom vacation home is thoughtfully appointed with new modernist furnishings inspired by famous midcentury modern designer icons. Highlights include an authentic Herman Miller Eames® Elliptical Table (popularly known as the 'Surfboard' coffee table), stylish yet comfortable living chairs, and raised modern beds with luxury mattresses and hotel quality linens in each bedroom.

The fully private and walled tropical back yard oasis features a large 'legacy size' swimming pool and a custom in-ground resort style jetted spa. Relax in chaise lounges underneath an island oasis of gently swaying palm trees and the tranquil sounds of the infinity waterfall that cascades into the pool.

A covered lanai spanning the length of the house features a stainless gas grill for outdoor grilling, and a modern glass outdoor table for alfresco dining. Enjoy a succulent pink grapefruit that you pick from the grapefruit tree. After sunset, the entire garden and palm trees are softly illuminated with ground lighting. Gaze at the evening stars while you relax in the six-person private spa with therapeutic water jets.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2009

                          About the owner: Michael, owner, with Loki, Pembroke Corgi living the desert lifestyle in downtown Palm Springs. Thank you for visiting our site! We have enormous pride in our vacation house and our goal is to provide each guest with courteous, responsive service.

                          Why the Owner Chose Los Compadres:
                          In 2007 a group of close friends from Seattle rented this delightful mid-century modern home for a winter escape from the rain and cold. We all fell instantly in love with the magical desert 'zen' that this home provided. Despite all the nearby attractions and activities, we found ourselves spending the majority of our four lazy days lounging by (and in!) the private pool, soaking up the sun, and grilling lunch and dinner poolside. At night we all enjoyed the wonderful sensation of slowly immersing ourselves into the jetted hot tub and gazing upwards at the stars. Three years later we discovered that this home was for sale. We didn't hesitate a second to purchase this vacation home for ourselves, families, and friends. As our guests, we trust you will have an equally memorable stay at our 'home away from home!'

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          This vacation home is located on a highly sought-after panoramic View Lot bordering the Mesquite Country Club PGA golf course. The dining, living, guest rooms, and private front yard feature completely unobstructed views of a beautifully landscaped PGA 18-hole golf course. In the backdrop, there are breathtaking views of the San Jacinto Mountain range. Just a few steps away is a meandering 4-mile looped paved walking/running/biking trail for energetic morning run, or a relaxing afternoon stroll shaded by palm trees.
