This Mid-Century remodel of a classic Alexander affords a breathtaking panoramic clerestory view of the San Jacinto Mountains. The spacious, open-plan design, high ceilings, white on white interior evokes the iconic Mid-Century aesthetic!

A 55 inch plasma TV is also provided with HBO and dozens of cable channels.
The house is larger than most of the neighboring Alexander's and provides ample room and privacy for a group or family. The living room is centered around the gas fired fire place, with view of the pool and palms. The oversized iconic photograph by Slim Aarons, Poolside Gossip, is a dramatic touch, evoking Palm Springs mid century style. The den/dining room has sliding doors to the pool and patio!



The remodeled kitchen, with stainless cabinets and Carrera marble countertop is fully equipped with the best appliances. Fisher Paykel dishwasher, Viking stove, even a Panini grill! Beautiful dishes and serving ware for home entertaining abound and staples are provided in the walk-in pantry.

A floating island with stools is a perfect spot to watch the cook at work. Cuisinart, juicer, oster user, mixer, are a few of the appliances available to guests.

Three bedrooms, each with its own bathroom all have private patio areas with outdoor chairs and chaise. Two bathrooms have walk-in showers and one has a tub/shower combo.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: My husband is a retired physician and I am a retired economist living part time in Boston and Martha's Vineyard. We love the west coast and come often to be near our twin grandsons and daughter and son-in-law. We are interested in Mid Century architecture and furnishings and also love the outdoors, particularly cycling. So in December 2011 we purchased this home and have fallen in love with it and with Palm Springs. It has an expanded floor plan that maintains the integrity of the Alexander design, yet it feels authentic, and roomy. We love to cook and entertain and the house is perfect for that. The open plan lets the cook and guests talk and share in meal preparation. Lots of good food, good wine and interesting conversation is part of the Palm Springs experience. Please feel free to call me with any questions or concerns.

                  Why the Owner Chose Racquet Club Estates:
                  Palm Springs is the perfect location for us. We love the weather, the near-flat cycling, the mountain views and the flora and fauna. THere is always something to do...film festival, modernism week, Coachella, movies, hiking. It is also relaxing and we particularly love our new home. The house has never been rented before so we thought we would give it a try on VRBO.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The best part of our house is the open plan and the blending of indoor and outdoor activities. The all white interiors set a bright and cheerful mood and the Mid Century Modern furnishings are perfect for this Alexander. THe house has been expanded so there is plenty of room for lounging and dining. THe extra large pool is great for laps and the diving board is really fun. The grassy yard is a comfortable place for frisbee, badminton or just hanging out. The house has never been a rental house, so it is fresh and well taken care of.
