Property description

Suddenly, it's 1957! Welcome to our Palm Springs Modern Classic.

This home away from home is located in the Twin Palms neighborhood of Palm Springs. It has been beautifully renovated and tastefully furnished to maintain the look and feel of its original (William Krisel) design. Originally completed in 1957 by the Alexander Construction Company, this home is known as the 'Gable.'

As you enter the home, it is bright and welcoming. Walls of glass provide a magnificent open view of the mountains and offer the indoor/outdoor living environment Palm Springs is known for.

The open concept kitchen, living, and dining areas with terrazo tile overlook the fabulous pool deck, which faces west, and is back-dropped by the 10,000 foot San Jacinto Mountain range - seeming so close you can touch it. The great-room includes kick-your-feet-up comfort furnishings, massive stone fireplace, dinning area, and a kitchen that is well stocked with modern amenities for today's cooks.

There is indoor dinning for 9, and a 6-top for outdoor dining. If cooking is not in the cards, take advantage of the variety of nearby popular restaurants, some within walking distance of the home.

The home features 3 comfortable bedrooms all boasting Tempur-comfort mattresses, flat screen HD-TVs, and Blu-Ray/DVD players. The master features a California king bed, 46' TV, and a beautifully renovated ensuite bath with access to the pool area. Bedroom-2 also features a Californian King bed, 40' TV, and shares a hall-bath with bedroom-3, which has 2 twin beds and a 40' TV.

When you are ready to relax and celebrate the moments of your life, reserve the Palm Springs Modern Classic and come experience the beauty and time-less setting of this mid century modern gem. .

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: My family and rented a Mid Century Modern home for the first time back in 2009, and that's when our affection for all-things "modernism" began. We admire the simplicity: open carports, clerestory windows, exposed concrete block, breezeways, and butterfly roofs. We hope you enjoy this home as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Twin Palms:
The Twin Palms neighborhood sits just south of the city, is peaceful and quiet, and less-windy. Twin Palms is the first mid-century modern neighborhood built by George Alexander's building company. Alexander and Architects Dan Palmer and William Krisel are credited with redefining the architectural landscape of Palm Springs residential real estate. Their success initiated the City's first major housing boom in the 50's and forever changed its architectural landscape.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The City of Palm Springs designated the home as a historic site, HSPB 85, in January, 2013. We are proud preservationist and happy to share this home with you and serve as stewards to one of the many "starchitects" found in the Twin Palms neighborhood. A toast, to partnerships in preservation!
