              Car: Recommended

              Located in historic, mid-century modern Racquet Club Estates - home to the famed Alexander and Meiselman homes and the 50s Hollywood elite. This home is walking distance to the chic Riviera Resort and only minutes drive to downtown Palm Springs. Easy access to shops, restaurants, grocery, and the Aerial Tram.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About the owner: We live full-time in Manhattan Beach with our two kids and two French bulldogs. We love taking weekend trips to the desert, so decided that buying a second home in Palm Springs would be the perfect solution to more desert time. The kids love the pool and we love the peace and beauty that Palm Springs offers.

              Why the Owner Chose Racquet Club Estates:
              We've always wanted a mid-century modern home and loved the community of Racquet Club Estates and the wide variety of homes in this neighborhood. RCE is one of the largest neighborhoods comprised of Alexander and Meiselman homes. We preferred the lay-out of a Meiselman over the more common Alexanders. Having two separated bedroom areas offer greater privacy for other friends and family. We instantly fell in love with this house, and knew that adding some of our personal touches would make it the perfect desert home for us.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Morning sunrise views of the mountains from the backyard with a cup of coffee. The privacy and tranquility of the backyard and pool. Wall of glass windows overlooking the pool from the kitchen and living room. Fabulous neighbors and Raquet Club Estates community.
