About the Property
Enjoy a real Palm Springs vacation in a true Midcentury Modern Home!
* Monthly rent includes pool and spa heat up to $500 per month.
Enjoy a true Palm Springs classic vacation in a classic MidCentury designed by Hugh M. Kaptur, AIA for the Ranch Construction Company. Hugh Kaptur, honored with a star on the Palm Springs Walk of Fame and many tributes during Modernism Week 2014, built many iconic buildings in Palm Springs including Steve McQueen and William Holden's home. Mr. Kaptur's homes are much-celebrated for their classic, timeless design, open and bright floor plans, and seamless indoor / outdoor living. Nothing exemplifies the Palm Springs life style like an authentic midcentury home.
This home is featured in the documentary, 'Quiet Elegance. The architecture of Hugh M. Kaptur'. Over 2200 square feet, Mid Century Home in Desert Park Estates! A top to bottom, inside and out restoration of this 1961 beauty was completed on January 22nd 2013. Great care was taken to ensure that this home retained it's midcentury modern charm and integrity, while adding all of the state of the art amenities that will make your next vacation the best one yet! Even the color scheme is accurate to 1961.
Step back in time to 1961! Enjoy cocktails, while lounging in a mid century chair. Eat dinner on a Danish Modern dining table, with a 1960's table cloth, on Mid Century plates. Even the Magazines on the coffee table are from 1961!
Keep reading...it gets even better!
Let's start in the back yard! This home sits on over 1/2 acre. There are views from every room of the house. The back yard has a brand new, modern pool and spa, gas barbecue, olive trees, over 2400 square feet of grass area, 2 cactus gardens and a sand volley ball court!..really! The view of San Jacinto is nothing short of amazing.
Now let's go inside... as you walk through the original front door you will see that the main living area is completely open to the back yard via the original sliding doors and windows. Sweeping views of the back yard and brand a new pool and spa greet you, and beckons you outside. In the main living area you will find a breakfast area, cocktail lounge with an incredible Kyle Bunting area rug. The dining room seats 8. The additional lounge area is where you'll find a mid century recliner and a 42 inch flat screen TV, with surround sound.
Let's talk about the bedrooms...The master bedroom is decorated in cream, grey and green. The green paint on the walls is called 'martini olive'! What a coincidence! It has an ensuite bathroom with double sinks and direct access to the patio through the sliding door. Down the hall are 2 additional bedrooms; one in Orange and one in Aqua. High thread count sheets, down comforters and pillows are here for your enjoyment.
Now, on to the Kitchen...your kitchen has brand new, stainless appliances and a custom designed mosaic tile wall that is almost beyond description! It has new CaesarStone countertops and the hardware on the new cabinets is original to the house. A bar separates the kitchen from the living/dining area. Down the hall there's a washer and dryer should you need it.
But wait.. there's more! Just off the living room, with it's own entrance, is the brand new Casita with it's own sitting area, backyard access, and ensuite bathroom.
The best of everything is what you'll find in this Midcentury Modern Beauty! Top to bottom, floor to ceiling and everything in between is new and waiting for you!

Of course there are golf courses and shopping, but there is also, the McCallum Theatre and the Palm Springs theatre; home of the famous Follies! There are plenty of outdoor activities too; rock climbing, trails to the famous Palms, the Ariel Tram to the top of Mt. San Jacinto. In January, the Palm Springs Film Festival happens. In February there's Modernism week. There's the flea market at the College of the Desert that's held every Saturday and Sunday, year 'round.

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We are a husband and wife team who live in Southern California. We have two adult children, both boys. One is in the Air Force and the other attends college. We are Southern California natives and enjoy boating on the Colorado River.
Why the Owner Chose Desert Park Estates, Palm Springs, CA, USA:
We are huge fans of MidCentury modern architechture. So when we had a rare opportunity to buy this home and return it to it's original glory, we jumped at it. We have two adult boys, and two dogs. We take great pride on delivering the best vacation experience for our guests. So, we made extra effort to ensure that the original charm of the home was restored yet still upgraded the home with all modern conveniences and finishes.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home gives you the feeling of stepping back in time to 1961. The best part about this home is the openness to the back yard. Mid century architecture was all about bringing the outdoors in. The back wall of the living and dining room is all glass. Outdoor dining and lounging under the original covered patio is a great experience. We know you will love this home as much as we do!
