About the Property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Alexander With Mountain Views

Iconic mid-century modern home where we have blended the best of new mid-century modern furnishings, vintage mad-men era dinnerware/glassware/serve ware, luxurious towels and bedding with a large amenity filled backyard.

The great room (living/dining/kitchen) is big and bright and opens to the private backyard oasis. The large yard has multiple areas to relax into – swim laps or float in the very large swimming pool, lounge in the cabana, practice your putts on the grass circles, or relax around the fire pit. A deep covered patio runs the length of the house and provides ample room for outdoor BBQing, dining and relaxing, and shade from the sun all day. Fruit bearing trees produce abundant oranges, grapefruits and lemons!

Bonus for you – the mature landscaping offers privacy for those interested in skinny-dipping or sunbathing 'au naturale.'

This architecturally significant 1958 Alexander mid-century modern home, designed by famous architects Palmer & Krisel, is located in the wind free heart of central Palm Springs, and is a short walk or a bike ride away from everything quintessentially Palm Springs: the historic downtown walking area, restaurants, shows, casinos, night clubs, movies, Tram, hiking, tennis, golf, spa services, mineral baths, gyms, running, biking, or just walking through the retro mid-century modern streets filled with the residential architecture of the iconic master builders: Alexander, Meiselman, and Weller.

Our home is set in a very quiet neighborhood thus we are seeking respectful and conscientious guests who are searching for a quiet, relaxing and comfortable vacation. Due to Palm Springs strict noise ordinance (PSMC Ch. 5.25), this is not an ideal rental if your group plans to party hard. In your inquiry, please provide information on who will be staying in our home and reason for your visit. Please note that the maximum overnight guest count can’t exceed six (6).

Your Enchanted Alexander mid-century modern vacation will exceed your expectations and we hope to see you back the following year.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We live in Seattle on a floating home. We've been vacationing in Palm Springs for many years. We love modern architecture and chose to buy a 2nd home in Palm Springs. We wanted to live the classic Palm Springs lifestyle, and this home is everything classic a mid-century modern purist can appreciate.

Why the Owner Chose Sunrise Park, Palm Springs, CA, USA:
Alexander Construction built the first tract homes in Palm Springs and this home is everything Palm Springs. As lovers of mid-century modern, Alexander was the only choice for us.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This true classic Palm Springs architecture, was designed by the famous architectural team of Palmer/Krisel. Alexander Construction built tract homes that were designed to bring the outdoors in. The large lot has amazing views of the San Jacinto mountains, has a classic 12' deep swimming pool, cabana and fire pit. It is a playground!
