Sunrise Park house description

'The house was a delight and we're already talking about 'next time.' 'Fantastic. We will be back. The best of the houses in PS we have stayed in over the years.'

These are quotes from recent guests that have stayed in our iconic home where we have blended the best of new mid-century modern furnishings, vintage mad-men era dinnerware/glassware/serve ware, and luxurious towels and bedding. We have worked hard to give you a real 50’s experience – less kitsch and more upscale luxe.

This architecturally significant 1958 Alexander mid-century modern home, designed by famous architects Palmer & Krisel, is located in the wind free heart of central Palm Springs, and is a short walk or a bike ride away from downtown Palm Springs.

Whether you are a group, or enjoying the home alone, you will enjoy panoramic mountain views. The large yard has multiple areas to relax into – large swimming pool, lounge in the cabana, or relax around the fire pit. The 6’ diameter circular sun shade is roomy enough to be enjoyed by two. The deep covered patio runs the length of the house and provides ample room for outdoor entertaining and shade from the sun. Fruit bearing trees produce abundant oranges, grapefruits and lemons!

This home is perfect for entertaining with an atomic era dining table that seats 10. After a day of relaxation, retire to elegantly appointed bedrooms for a restorative night’s rest. The master suite has a gorgeous view of the pool and lush grounds. Two additional bedrooms each have stunning views of the San Jacinto Mountains. This house has all of the amenities you have come to expect: flat screen TVs, DVD/Blue Ray player and IPod docking stations.

Bonus for you – the mature landscaping offers privacy for those interested in skinny-dipping or sunbathing 'au naturale.'

The great room (living/dining/kitchen) is big and bright and opens to the private backyard oasis. The house is located in the wind free Sunrise Park neighborhood, and is within minutes of everything Palm Springs: the historic downtown walking area, restaurants, shows, casinos, night clubs, movies, Tram, hiking, tennis, golf, spa services, mineral baths, gyms, running, biking, or just walking through the retro mid-century modern streets filled with the residential architecture of the iconic master builders: Alexander, Meiselman, and Wexler.

Your Enchanted Alexander mid-century modern vacation will exceed your expectations and we hope to see you back the following year.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: We live in Seattle on a floating home. We've been vacationing in Palm Springs for many years. We love modern architecture and chose to buy a 2nd home in Palm Springs. We wanted to live the classic Palm Springs lifestyle, and this home is everything classic a mid-century modern purist can appreciate.

                  Why the Owner Chose Sunrise Park:
                  Alexander Construction built the first tract homes in Palm Springs and this home is everything Palm Springs. As lovers of mid-century modern, Alexander was the only choice for us.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  This true classic Palm Springs architecture, was designed by the famous architectural team of Palmer/Krisel. Alexander Construction built tract homes that were designed to bring the outdoors in. The large lot has amazing views of the San Jacinto mountains, has a classic 12' deep swimming pool, cabana and fire pit. It is a playground!
