Welcome to our home away from home. In 2013 we visited the racquet club garden villas and fell in love with the property. Once you enter the gated community of 37 condos its like stepping into a lovely oasis. Each of the units are each nestled away along a beautiful stream that runs from the main pool space down toward the old racquet club to the far end. We purchased this free standing condo and just recently completed a total restoration.
Our unit has two bedrooms and one bathroom. The furnishings we selected are all mid-century modern. Both the master and the guest bedroom feature a custom built walnut platform bed. Each having large storage space underneath the bed frame. The master features a king size mattress and the second bedroom has a queen size mattress. Both have very comfortable mattresses with high end linens and pillows.
The kitchen has everything you would need to make a home cooked meal. The cabinets are all black walnut with solid surface countertops.
The bathroom features white Italian marble and walnut cabinetry. The shower has a standard shower head and two body sprays.
There three patios to choose from...One large space off the master bedroom with two chaise lounge chairs and two sitting chairs. The second large patio is off the main living and kitchen area with seating and dining for 4/6. The last patio is off the dining area and has a small sitting area for 2/4 people.
In February 2015 this unit will be featured during modernism week and the tour of the historical racquet club garden villas.
In 2013, the racquet club garden villas received the 3rd ever city of palm springs historic district designation. This community will forever be preserved for generations to come and enjoy this lovely oasis that seems to take you back in time.
The history: the racquet club garden villas were constructed in 1959 adjacent to the famous palm springs racquet club as an overflow for hollywood celebrities and visitors alike who wished to have a more extended stay near the famed tennis club.
The racquet club garden villas has a triple pedigree:
1. Architect: William Cody
2. Contractor: Paul Trousdale
3. Landscape Architect: Phil Shipley
There are 37 units nestled in lush, verdant landscaping, with a beautiful stream running throughout the property. The condominiums were designed using post and beam architecture. Each unit having large expanses of windows and glass. With a significant deal of attention paid to the layout and orientation on the property. The racquet club was the place to see and be seen in the 1940's, 50's and 60's. Marilyn monroe was said to have been discovered by the pool at the racquet club.
THIS IS A SMALL, QUIET COMMUNITY. If you are looking for a place to have parties or loud music by the pool, this isn't the place for you. For us, and the rest of the residents, this is a relaxing retreat (with an emphasis on treat!) from the outside world.

About the owner: Brent And I are both interested in and inspired by mid-century modern architecture and design. We live in Norman, Oklahoma and both work in the design and construction business. We spend as much time as possible in Palm Springs and enjoy lazy afternoons at the pool.
Why the Owner Chose Palm Springs, CA, USA:
We fell in love with the Racquet Club Garden Villas after going on a tour of the complex during the 2012 Modernism Week. We had been looking for a second home in Palm Springs, but we had been looking at houses. During the tour, we checked out a few open houses and we were sold! This is such a quiet, peaceful place for a getaway and the people are so nice. We enjoy waking up and having an incredible view of the San Jacinto mountains, and relaxing by the pool in the afternoons. The property feels so secluded, yet we can be downtown looking around the shops or eating at one of our favorite restaurants in a few minutes.
