About the Property
3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 6 + 1 Infant
This fully renovated vacation house is located in Palm Springs' famous Racquet Club Estates neighborhood, home to the legendary Racquet Club Resort where the Hollywood elite and movie stars escaped for a weekend retreat of relaxation in the desert.
The home features highly sought-after desert mid-century modern architecture, including a spacious open floor plan, dramatic vaulted high ceilings unique to the iconic “butterfly” roofline design, exposed tongue-and-groove ceiling beams, and floor-to-ceiling “walls of glass” that stream an abundance of sunlight throughout the indoor living areas. Each room throughout the house has been renovated to showcase the home’s stunning features. Highlights include a fully renovated open-air kitchen, that features stainless steel appliances, pro-grade gas cooktop, Keurig Platinum café brewer, and auto-closing drawers well-stocked with all the essential cooking gadgets.
The main living, dining and kitchen areas provide unobstructed views of the mountains and expansive private garden and pool through the “zero-clearance” floor-to-ceiling windows, which blur the distinction between the indoors and outdoors.
The expanded master bedroom features a gas fireplace, flat panel wall-mounted HDTV and private patio. The en suite master bath that features dual vanity sinks and a luxury step-down oversized shower with glass tiles. Longer-term guests will appreciate the abundant custom storage features available in the walk-in closet.
Throughout the house, guests will appreciate the modernist furnishings inspired by famous mid-century modern designer icons. Highlights include a curved low-back sofa, Mies van der Rohe Barcelona chair, and raised modern beds with luxury mattresses and hotel quality linens in each bedroom.
Outside, sun lovers can soak up the desert sun in the desirable western-facing private back yard. Indulge in the Pebble-Tec® swimming pool with 'legacy size' dimensions, which features walk-in stair-step access and variable depths. After a refreshing swim, relax in the adjustable chaise loungers underneath an oasis of palm trees, surrounded by resort-style landscaping.
The private back yard features an expansive detached outdoor cabana with kitchenette for enjoying the Palm Springs indoor-outdoor lifestyle. The kitchen/bar area features includes a Jenn-Air chef’s gas grill, true-gas cooktop burner, and bar/prep sink. You and your guests can dine al-fresco style in the lighted cabana at the outdoor dining table, and afterwards retreat to the brand new outdoor club style sectional lounge sofa.
After sunset, the entire private back yard and palm trees are dramatically illuminated with professional resort-designed ground lighting. Mix up a cool retro cocktail in the blender in the outdoor kitchen, and then gaze at the evening stars while relaxing around the custom built-in gas fire pit or in the resort style spa with therapeutic water jets.

Why the Owner Chose Racquet Club Estates (Palm Springs, CA, USA):
As mid-century modern enthusiasts, we jumped at the opportunity to purchase this iconic “Butterfly” Alexander-built mid-century modern house. This is our second house in the desert, and we’re thrilled to share it with our guests. We spent over 8 months fully renovating this amazing house and property to its original splendor. With the exception of the frame and exterior stucco siding, the house is essentially all new.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home is a highly sought-after authentic Alexander-built 'butterfly' roofline house. The main living areas and private back yard boast breathtaking views of the San Jacinto Mountain range. Just a short walk away is the steps away is the beautifully landscaped Victoria Park.
