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.
