Property description

Our Original restored Palmer+Kriesel designed Alexander mid century sits on 11000 square foot lot on a cul-de-sac and was featured in the New York Times 'Home section' entitled 'Desert Cool'. Inside, you'll find classic modern treatments such as Eames tables and chairs, Case Study beds in both bedrooms, mixed with completely renovated bathrooms and kitchen with everything you’ll need. High vaulted ceilings and refinished flat cement flooring throughout with Design-Within-Reach throw rugs and FLOR tiles.

The Living Room features Hi-Definition DirectTv with movie channels (HBO and SHOWTIME), Apple Tv, and a SONOS sound system. The master bedroom also features a wood burning fireplace. Wall-to-wall sliding glass doors open to a kidney shaped pool, surrounded by palm and olive trees. There's even a private outdoor lounging/eating covered patio, framed by Frosted resin panels. 2 separate in-ground gas fire pits, one by the pool and living area, and the other by the hot tub, provide some privacy even when together on the property.

Recently we’ve upgraded the house with new pool loungers from Design-Within-Reach, re-plastered the pool including new imported tile from Japan, upgraded the TV to a new 50” LED Sony, and added new LG Washer/Dryers. The kitchen has also been updated with new Bosch appliances, and we feature All-Clad stainless steel pots and pans. In 2014, we upgraded the hot tub to a Hot Spring Spa with Moto-Massage® jets, complemented by a Quartet® jet system, to soothe your neck, shoulders and back. Its comfortable seating, styled armrests, and SoothingStream® water feature provide maximum relaxation.

The 4-ton air conditioner is also brand new as of Sept '15, and controlled by the Nest Thermostat.

PS TOT#20010031

THREE LOUNGING AREAS : Additionally, a third seclusive lounging area off the middle bedroom (away from the other areas) by the hot tub features original Balinese wood loungers. Overall - magical and relaxing...

COMPLETE PRIVACY: The house is located on one of the larger lots in the Racquet Club Estates and is completely enclosed and private (backyard, pool ,spa, lounging areas).

GOLF + PARK: While 'true' golfer's probably won't want to use the clubs we make available, we do have an old set at the house for your use...in case you want to golf at one of the local public courses for fun.

Just one block away is a large grassy park with trees and benches, etc.

Located about 15 minutes from the airport, and less than five minutes from the center of Palm Springs center of restaurants, shops, and attractions.

Thanks for looking!

Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • pool heating is optional $0
  • housekeeping $150 + tax
  • Refundable Damage Deposit $500
  • Tax Rate 13.5%

Notes:

Refundable rental deposit and/or 25% down holds the reservation. Pool heating is additional (optional) and either added to your final payment, or charged separately to a credit card. Pool heating rates fluctuate seasonally based on the utility costs to heat the pool, generally $20+ (summer) up to $35+ (winter) per day.

We don't charge extra pet fees, but ask guests to keep pets off furniture and Linens, and pick up after pets in the yard. If your pet sheds excessively, we can withhold extra housekeeping fees from your damage deposit if additional laundering or clean up is required. This doesn't happen very often, but occasionally can be an issue. Even though we don't have pets of our own, we love pets and have rarely had any issues. The backyard is fully enclosed too.

Prior to any payment (or other commitment by you), please read and navigate all of the terms in the attached RENTAL AGREEMENT, where you can print, and/or save a copy of, the terms to your computer. The terms of the rental agreement are always available for you to review at any time.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Owned by Hollywood entertainment professionals. Feel free to contact us directly at palmspringsholidayATgmailDOTcom.

Why the Owner Chose Racquet Club Estates (Palm Springs, CA, USA):
Located on a corner lot, our home rests on one of the largest parcels in our neighborhood of restored historical Alexander homes, allowing for two distinct areas to unwind and relax away from others while on the same property.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Privacy. The house is tucked in by large palm and olive trees, creating a very lush, private and quiet sanctuary. The house also features a very unique covered sitting area, flanked by resin walls of semi-translucent glass between the pool and kitchen, perfect for eating or relaxing in shade.
