Twin Palms house description

Channel your inner Don Draper or George Jetson in this beautiful Mid-Century Modern home. Designed by famed California architect William Krisel and constructed by the Alexander Construction Company this gem is situated in the historically cool yet quiet Twin Palms area of Palm Springs.

Restored in collaboration with the original architect this lovely home presents the future as it was conceived of in the 1950's with the contemporary amenities of today.

Landscaping includes indigenous cactus and geometric stone and plant work designed by the architect. Grapefruit, orange and lemon trees are ready for guests to enjoy. The pool and spa are joined by a small waterfall and includes many pool accessories such as water mattresses, pool noodles, goggles, flip flops and outdoor shower as well as patio furniture, 3 sun umbrellas, lounge and eating areas, BBQ and 2 bicycles. From the secluded backyard you can sun and swim or watch the romantic sunsets framed by the San Jacinto mountains towering up from the West.

The house is a perfect example of indoor-outdoor living with glass sliders and the architectural sun flaps that this design is famous for. Guests are greeted by a life-size photograph of Carmen Miranda and several photographs and architectural drawings of other houses in Palm Springs designed by William Krisel.

Guests can enjoy the modern open concept kitchen, living and dining area with seating for 6 or more, with gas fireplace, fabulous era furnishings as well as many modern accessories including flatscreen TVs and free Wifi, microwave, dishwasher, fridge containing filtered water, gas stove, dining linens and much more.

3 bedrooms include superior linens, summer and winter bathrobes, and period lamps. The first bedroom has 2 extra long twin beds, duvets and cotton blankets for summer, period mobile and plant table, and mats, blocks and straps for yoga. The second bedroom has a queen-sized bed with duvet and cotton blankets. The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed with duvet and cotton blankets and flat screen TV. The bathrooms feature sky-lighting, contemporary tiling, blowdryers and curling iron.
