Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We are private owners of this architectural masterpiece. Albert Frey was a well known and respected architect here in the Coachella valley. His buildings include the famous Palm Springs visitors center, the Frey house above the Palm Springs Desert Museum, and our house. It is all brick, with vaulted wood beamed ceilings and poured terrazo floors. Once you see our home you will want to come back again and again. We have several repeat visitors as a result.

Why the Owner Chose Taquitz River Estates, Palm Springs, CA, USA:
We bought this house because it is a wonderful example of 1950's mid century architecture. Plus the 3/4 acre property is spectactular!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
QUIET PRIVACY! This property is fully walled in, with double and triple layers of hedges around the perimeter. We only have neighbors on one side, with unobstructed mountain views and total privacy. Along with our quiet location, the gardens, the creek, the citrus grove, and the pool really make this a relaxing place. The house is really awesome too!
