Property description

***THIS PROPERTY IS NOT LISTED ON CRAIG'S LIST***

You are invited to delight in the Palm Springs Desert Modernism lifestyle of this recently renovated and designer decorated mid-century architectural treasure. Built in 1958 by the renowned Alexander Construction Company, this 1,600 sq. ft. “gable” home epitomizes the modernist and minimalist signature elements designed by famed architects Palmer & Krisel. It’s post and beam construction, soaring roof lines, exposed masonry rock, vaulted tongue & groove ceilings, open floor plan, generous walls of glass and clerestory windows integrate the home into the natural surroundings to maximize enjoyment of the Palm Springs warm weather and sunshine. Set in scenic Twin Palms, this is the very first mid-century modern neighborhood built by the Alexanders in Palm Springs. Alive with history and rich with character, it’s the ideal home for providing the ultimate vacation experience.

You’ll find the professionally designed interior of this property is a perfect mash-up between the charm and character of yesteryear juxtaposed with the modern day luxuries required of today’s discerning guests. This designer showplace is a stunning display of modernist décor with a sophisticated elegance that captures the magic and fun of Palm Springs living. Designed to facilitate relaxing and easy entertaining, the sweeping open floor plan provides a seamless flow between inside and outside using floor-to-ceiling walls of glass and sliding doors to brighten the living spaces with generous natural light and take advantage of the abundant Palm Springs sun and beautiful mountain vistas. The rooms are artfully appointed with comfort and style at every turn. The fashionable furnishings include white leather sofas, chrome and lacquered accents, plush area rugs, nostalgic artwork & photographs, whimsical accessories, dramatic lighting and exquisite finishes and textures. The cool white walls and polished concrete floors provide a soothing backdrop to the bold pops of color in tangerine orange, apple green and peacock blue.

The expansive living area uses one open space to unite sitting, lounging and dining areas while flowing smoothly to the private backyard oasis. With plenty of comfortable seating for guests, enjoy watching a movie on the 60” flat screen HDTV with Blu-ray DVD player. Or relax by the massive stone gas fireplace with twinkling glass crystals while listening to your favorite tunes on the IPOD stereo and gazing at the magnificent western mountain views of San Jacinto. You’ll love the nifty wet bar with Viking mini fridge, sink, lacquered cabinets and plenty of glassware for whipping up your favorite trendy cocktails.

The indoor dining area adjacent to the living room seats up to 8 people and is perfect for holiday meals or intimate dinners with close friends and family. The chrome and glass table, bold color Eiffel slope chairs, geometric carpet and sputnik chandelier contribute to the chic modern flair of this swanky dining area.

You’ll enjoy creating tasty gourmet meals in this fully equipped kitchen featuring granite counters, new GE Monogram commercial refrigerator with icemaker and water, stainless kitchen hood & 4-burner cook-top, GE Profile convection and microwave ovens, Electrolux dishwasher, double porcelain sinks, ample cabinet space and much more. There is plenty of room for all of the chefs in this spacious kitchen including a bistro table for those wishing to watch the cooking action. Flooded with abundant natural light from the clerestory windows, there is also access to the private courtyard patio with natural gas BBQ.

The crown jewel of this property is the resort-style outdoor living space allowing you to experience the magnificent desert climate. The completely private and meticulously maintained grounds are fenced, gated and hedged to provide the utmost seclusion and safety for your guests, children or furry friends. Lovely desert gardens abound every inch of the grounds filled with cactus, towering palm trees, ficus hedges, lush green lawn and many varieties of succulent plants. By day, indulge in a refreshing dip in the heated saltwater pool, soak in the sun and terrific mountain views from the sleek modern lounge chairs or relax under the umbrella or covered patio with cool misting system. There are plenty of grassy areas for a round of bocce or playing with kids or dogs. At sunset, enjoy dinner or cocktails seated around the outdoor dining table overlooking the pool and breathtaking mountain views. Or, indulge yourself in the tranquil 6 person jetted spa under the canopy of twinkling desert stars.

All three bedrooms are separated from the main living area, entitling guests to peace and privacy. They each have glass doors leading to an outdoor patio as well as abundant clerestory windows perfectly framing the mountain views and palm tree lined sky. All bedrooms are thoughtfully appointed with hotel quality linens and luxury mattresses, plenty of closet space and storage, colorful artwork, unique furnishings, ceiling fans and stylish rugs.

The glamorous master suite features a King size bed with padded leather headboard, bold print wallpaper, nostalgic celebrity photographs, high quality linens, custom built-in closet and lounge area with 32” flat screen HDTV with Blu-ray DVD player and IPOD doc. A split system is installed for independent temperature control for this suite. The en suite bath offers a spacious walk-in shower, vessel sink, stone counter, European style cabinets, modern fixtures and glass door access to the pool area.

The front guest room has a King size bed, high quality linens, 40” flat screen HDTV, huge closet, dresser and seating area. The middle guest room features a Queen size bed, coordinated linens, desk and ample closet space.

The shared guest bath offers a tiled shower/tub combination with rain shower head, pedestal sink, designer fixtures and skylight. Plenty of plush bath towels on hand.

For our guests added convenience we offer a separate laundry room inside with full size washer and dryer, Wi-Fi, phone service with unlimited long distance to US and Canada, swamp cooler, 2-car garage. All high quality linens, towels & pool floats provided too.

The splendid home, private setting and magnificent views all come together in dramatic fashion to provide a remarkable vacation experience you’ll remember for years to come. Experience an Alexander built home like many of the Old Hollywood celebrities who owned one including Dean Martin, Dinah Shore, Joan Collins and Marilyn Monroe. It’s the ultimate Palm Springs getaway for modernism enthusiasts, family vacations, a romantic couples weekend or snowbirds looking for a private, relaxing, warm retreat. We strive to provide you all the comforts of home without the work. That is why we offer all our guests access to a local property manager on call to attend to your needs. Weekly gardening service, estate disposal service and pool service twice per week are also provided. Just relax and enjoy your stay!

This property is nestled in the charming Twin Palms neighborhood of South Palm Springs. You are within walking distance to Koffi, the Ace Hotel and Palm Canyon Drive. You’ll be able to enjoy all the activities this famous city has to offer including fine dining, shopping, hiking, biking, horseback riding, gambling and riding the PS Arial Tramway. You will also be within a mile of Smoke Tree Shopping Center with Ralph’s Fresh Fare Grocery Store, True Value and lots of casual dining. The public library and senior center are within 2 miles.

International guests will find Palm Springs to be an ideal 'home base' for daytrip excursions to Southern California.
