New Listing as of May 4, 2017
Surf’s Up! Your next Palm Springs getaway is a Polynesian delight at the home we're calling "PS DiveIn"! Located in the historic Racquet Club Estates neighborhood, this fully updated Alexander Company built home is one of the few original four bedroom homes designed by renowned architect William Krisel in 1959. A model of Mid-Century design and the Tiki craze, PS DiveIn not only offers a twist with its stylish interior, as recently featured as the Spring 2017 cover home for Atomic Ranch magazine, but also provides a unique cinematic experience, allowing you to view your favorite movies at night poolside with a outdoor movie projection and wireless headphones.
PS DiveIn’s bedroom layout is ideal for families and multiple couples vacationing together with 2 en-suite master bedrooms, both with rear yard/poolside access and two guest bedrooms. Both Master bedrooms feature King beds, attached bathrooms, and smart TVs. The two guest bedrooms also feature smart TVs with one guest king bed and one guest queen bed. Both guest bedrooms share the hall bathroom. The fourth bedroom (or 2nd Master Suite) is separated from the other bedrooms by the homes’ delightful living space which offers privacy and entrance off the covered carport that has a garage door. Both master suites offer sliding doors and pool/patio access.
The inside living space offers a compact but efficient island kitchen with breakfast bar seating and updated appliances. Dining and entertaining flows easily in the home’s open floor plan, from kitchen to casual dining (for up to 8) to the living room which offers views poolside with walls of glass and sliders. Attention to detail during remodeling really shows off with the rock clad living room fireplace that matched the home’s exterior rock finishes. A massive credenza in the living room offers storage for entertaining supplies and is a duplicate of the credenza featured in Don Draper’s office in Mad Men. The interior space throughout the home highlights its Mid-Century origins with angled wood plank ceilings, polished porcelain tile floors, grasscloth wallpaper, Orange Witco wall art and a mix of Tiki touches and Brutalist furniture.
Outdoors, PS DiveIn offers great poolside living and entertaining with unobstructed mountain views, two gas fire pit features, a hammock for shady naps, outdoor propane BBQ grill, al fresco dining for up to 8 and multiple seating areas around the large saltwater pool and in-ground spa. Don’t forget that outdoor theater that allows you to enjoy your favorite movies creatively projected onto the back wall of our neighboring fire station; wireless headphones keep the drama and music discreetly to yourselves without disturbing the neighbors!
This beautiful vacation rental is a short drive to downtown Palm Springs, with its many bars, shops, restaurants, and art galleries. Other Palm Springs attractions are similarly a short drive away, from area casinos and gambling, to world renowned spa resorts, tennis, golfing, and the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway.
Racquet Club Estates is a premier neighborhood of Palm Springs. The neighborhood is rich with architecture and history. It should be noted the city has sound ordinances that are strictly enforced. The owner(s) like to stress this home is ideal for a dream vacation and relaxation but is by no means a “party-central” home. Each guest is expected to be as good a neighbor as the owner(s) themselves. Special events like weddings are NOT allowed.
