Racquet Club Estates house description

Modern Mid-Century Alexander Butterfly! Featured in CA Modern Magazine and 2012 Modernism Week tours.

Newly renovated inside and out, this stunning 1960 Alexander butterfly-roof home pays homage to the past while looking to the future. This architecturally important home perfectly blends the mid-century aesthetic with updated amenities including all the modern comforts and conveniences available to deliver the very best of both worlds! Developed by an award winning designer, the home provides a seamless integration of indoor and outdoor living spaces, the perfect retreat to enjoy the Palm Springs lifestyle with friends or family.

The light, bright open living area flows into the patio and pool area creating a sense of openness not often found in similar mid-century homes. A complete outdoor kitchen, lounge and dining area expand your living area, almost doubling the usable living space. Relax in the spa, gather round the fire pit in the evening or take a swim in the refreshing pool with waterfall. Newly created private outdoor lounge areas off each bedroom give you a private area to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or an intimate moment to curl up with a book, or that special someone.

As you enter thru the private and gated courtyard you are struck by the sense of openness and light. From the marble floors, floor to ceiling windows, the Wenge/Stainless/Caeserstone kitchen, or the large open living area with fireplace and super-slim 52” Internet enabled LED TV with surround-sound stereo, you feel like you’ve walked into a high end boutique hotel. The open concept living area allows you to accommodate a crowd and not feel cramped. And the whole house WIFI, HDTV with Blu-ray/DVD players and iPod/iPhone charging and docking stations in every bedroom allow you to enjoy all your favorite toys!

Push back the 14’ sliding glass wall to create the classic Palm Springs indoor/outdoor lifestyle.

Enjoy dinner or cocktails under the shade covered outdoor lounge and dining area. The granite and stainless outdoor kitchen with sink, fridge and gas grill make dinners or entertaining a breeze! After dinner relax in the spa, take a plunge in the pool or gather round the fire-pit. The outdoor shower and bathroom provide an extra level of luxury and convenience.

Time for bed or need a little private time? Each bedroom is designed for comfort and privacy, with its own private outdoor lounge area. Curl up in the 100% cotton sheets, plug in your iPod for some tunes, watch TV or a DVD on the LCD HDTV, or read a book in your outdoor lounge. There are queen sized beds in the master and second bedrooms, and two twins in the third that easily convert to a king size bed if needed. Extra blankets and pillows are in the closet if you need them! Washer and dryer are conveniently located in the garage for longer stays or unexpected messes.

The newly renovated bathrooms provide a spa like experience. Relax in the expanded master bath walk-in shower complete with body jets and rain shower head, or take a soak in the tub. Fully tiled from floor to ceiling, with beautiful brushed nickel Grohe fixtures, this bathroom sparkles with luxury. The second bathroom features a large walk-in shower with custom mosaic and floor to ceiling tile that finishes off the look. Clean, contemporary and modern.

Convenient Palm Springs Location, just minutes from downtown, the airport and restaurants. Located in historic Racquet Club Estates, the birthplace of the Alexander mid-century aesthetic.
