Located in quiet South Palm Springs, this residence enjoys wide open mountain vistas. Officially a condo, our single level home feels more like your own private desert bungalow. Our retreat is in the architecturally significant Canyon View Estates, designed by Palmer+Krisel and built in 1963. This charming enclave of homes is featured on modern tours and harkens back to yesteryear: single story white stucco and shadow block houses in small groups, sharing a sparkling pool, majestic palms and citrus trees. The home has the classic 'umbrella' roof with cool triangular clerestory windows that transmit very pleasing light. The partly covered patio provides beautiful and glare-free mountain views throughout the day. If you'd like to sunbathe, the outer patio and pool area have plentiful sun.
Noted designer Christopher Kennedy and Kristina Voelk helped to guide a complete renovation of the interior in the summer/fall of 2014. The original concrete slab has been exposed, polished and brought to life. The kitchen has all new appliances, glossy white cabinets, quartz counter tops and cool-blue subway tile. A long peninsula can be used for casual counter dining or serve as a handy buffet. The two bathrooms are newly redone and are simple, clean and bright.
The home has brand new midcentury inspired furnishings. We are proud to share a beautiful and varied mix of original art.
Our neighborhood is quiet and calm, yet is just 5 minutes by car to bustling downtown Palm Springs with its vibrant nightlife. We are close to golf, tennis, the Palm Springs Swim Center, and wonderful museums. Excellent hiking and cycling is just outside the front door. Two bicycles are available so that you can enjoy a spin through some fantastic modern neighborhoods near us. Smoke Tree Village, with grocery, shops and good restaurants is very close by. If so inclined, your morning 'Koffi' run is very close as well. A day exploring Joshua Tree National Park (one hour away) is hard to beat.
We welcome you for a long stay and hope that you relax, unwind and soak up the desert mojo. We will be so pleased if you make this your home away from home and depart feeling restored and refreshed, saying THIS is 'My Chill Spot' too!
