Mid-Century Alexander, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths

The City of Palm Springs ID #409

Relax and unwind in this recently remodeled Alexander, located in the unique mid-century neighborhood of Racquet Club Estates. An open floor plan, polished concrete floors, post and beam ceilings and contemporary furnishings are a few features that make your stay here a distinctively Palm Springs experience.

An airy great room boasts a comfy leather sectional sofa and a 50” TV and home theater, leading into the dining area and newly renovated kitchen.

The Master bedroom has a king bed, while bedrooms 2 & 3 have queen beds. All are tastefully styled, two with TVs. The Master bedroom has a private bath, with convenient outside access.

With spectacular mountain views, the spacious backyard is completely private; take a dip in the pool, or enjoy the hot tub. 

Grill and dine on the outside patio, or cozy up to the fire pit on those cool desert nights.

Located at the end of a quiet cul de sac, this Krisel- designed Alexander is centrally located, minutes from downtown restaurants, nightlife, and all that Palm Springs has to offer.

About Paul Schumaker

My partner and I are Angelenos who enjoy traveling and weekend desert getaways! We also have the home next door, vrbo listing # 492065.

Paul Schumaker purchased this house in 2008

Why Paul Schumaker chose Racquet Club Estates

We love the desert lifestyle, and the proximity is perfect to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. We're big fans of mid-century architecture, and love the neighborhood. We purchased the house in 2008, and spent the entire summer renovating it.

What makes this house unique

If you like post-modern style, you'll love the house. We really tried to preserve the architectural integrity of the home, while making it comfortable, stylish and most of all fun. We like our guests to feel like they're getting away from it all, Palm Springs style!

Amazing midcentury house for a taste of Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough great things about this house. The neighborhood was beautiful and quiet. The house is so modern and cool, yet vintage. Three spacious bedrooms, and lots of natural light throughout. Loved using the hot tub and the gorgeous pool, had plenty of privacy. Would recommend this place to anyone looking for a luxurious, convenient house to stay in while in Palm Springs. Paul was lovely to interact with and made us feel so welcome — wonderful experience.

A perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our sixth time staying at one of Paul and Dean's properties and it was another excellent experience. The house was all ready for our check in, and throughout our stay Paul and Dean were available for anything we needed. They are first-rate owners and ensure their guests have a first-rate experience. This home has everything you need for a dream Palm Springs vacation and it is located in the perfect spot to take in all the sights.

We have already booked our next stay.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house and even more so all the amenities of the yard! We sat each morning and night around the fire pit, layed by the pool, and grilled. It was the perfect place to unwind and enjoy!! There was nothing that was missing and would highly recommend! The owner Paul was very responsive and accommodating! Wonderful place!
