circa 1965, 'The Schwartz House' , designed by Hal Levitt, well known mid-century architect of the famous Trousdale Estates. Hal Levitt homes are popular among many celebrities including Jennifer Aniston.

This truly one of a kind house is referred to by Palm Springs experts as 'One of the top three homes in Palm Springs'. This home has been featured on the modernist tour, was in Lucky magazine, was in several 'Design Within Reach' catalogs and more. This home is truly like living in a piece of art. We know your jaw will drop and you will say 'WOW' when you enter this home!

Unlike most mid-century modern homes, this quintessential Palm Springs home is almost 4,000 square feet of living space. The walls of glass take advantage of the breathtaking views of the San Jacinto mountains.

This open floor plan home with polished concrete floors has two living areas... the main living room and the step down groovy lounge that provides a great place for intimate conversations or to relax and read a book. These two areas are 'connected' by the unbelievably beautiful see-through gas fireplace with the hippest tile work from the mid-century. All living areas have jaw dropping mountain views. The home features a large step up dining area that seats 8 people for meals, drinks, games or just great conversation. The atrium also seats 8 people for eating under the stars or enjoying views of the palm trees.

The gourmet kitchen has stainless appliances and everything you need in a kitchen including pots, pans, dishes, trays., toaster, microwave, blender, coffee pot, quesadilla maker, waffle maker and much more. The island offers several bar stools for people to keep you company while you cook.

It has four large bedrooms each with their own full bathroom, own flat screen TV with cable, large closets, and each with access to the outside directly from the bedroom. The private outside access from each bedroom is very unique and is perfect for sitting outside for an early morning coffee or a late night drink, without disturbing the others in the house. The bedrooms have 3 Kiing size beds and 1 queen. Each has upscale, beautiful bedding...not you typical rental bedding! High thread count sheets, duvets, nice pillows, etc.

If you want a private pool with stunning views, you found the perfect house. The pool and spa are salt water so you are not soaking in toxic chlorine.The pool area has lots of comfortable seating for lounging or sitting. It also has a beautiful sculpture/fountain, stainless steel gas grill, fruit trees, umbrella and and the world's best pool floats. It is completely private and can't be seen by any neighbors.

Now...lets talk location! Located in the most desirable area of Palm Springs known as South Palm Springs. This home is in walking distance to the hip Ace Hotel and Swim Club and the local favorite coffee shop called Koffi. It is also very close to the main strip in Palm Springs that has lots of shops and cafes.

This non-smoking home also has high speed wireless internet, unlimited long distance calling, 3 DVD players, lots of movies on DVD, amazing stereo system, a 500 CD changer, numerous CDs, board games, 2 car garage, washer/dryer and more.

This home is privately owned and managed so you get first class personal attention during your entire rental process. We love our home and know you will too! Call us today to book your vacation.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We ABSOLUTELY love our home. We first saw it in 2004 when there were already 2 other offers in on it to purchase. From 2004-2011 we looked at dozens and dozens of homes in Palm Springs but never found one as amazing and unique as this home. We were thrilled in 2011 when the house went back on the market and we were able to buy it. If you appreciate mid-century architecture, you will see why we love this house so much. There is so much we love about Palm Springs but mostly it is relaxing by the pool, the stunning views and our morning hikes.

Why the Owner Chose Palm Springs, CA, USA:
We have been coming to Palm Springs every year and fell in love with this neighborhood. It is walking distance to almost everything yet it is so incredibly quiet. The views when you walk in this neighborhood are breathtaking.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We are close to everything, have unobstructed mountain views in a very quiet neighborhood, I love nothing more than walking to the local favorite Koffi for a coffee in the morning.
