About the property

Mid-century 2 Bedroom Cottage That Wraps Around the Private Pool and Spa

Centrally located but planted in decades past. This classic mid-century home wraps around the private pool and spa with pool access and views from every room making for perfect Palm Springs retreat.

The home has been carefully restored to preserve the original character while updated to provide all the modern conveniences. The home is decorated in an eclectic mix of modern and traditional period pieces from the 1950s. New “wood” tile flooring throughout the house and vibrant colors that reflect a time when cars came in more colors than gray make for a warm and inviting cottage that would have felt right at home in the 1950s.

The Coral Cottage was featured in the 2015 Modernism Week fall preview home tour "Pads, Pools & Patios" as an excellent example of a modern bungalow that captures the California lifestyle.

The master bedroom features a new king size bed, 42” TV and direct access to the pool. The original bathroom was in remarkable condition and has been preserved but new plumbing and an on-demand water heater mean great pressure and plenty of hot water when you need it. The second bedroom has a new queen size bed and also has direct access and a view to the pool & spa. It’s located at the opposite end of the house making for an ideal setup for 2 couples or anyone looking for a little privacy. It is served by an adjacent bathroom which also has the original tile and fixtures.

The kitchen is completely new and fully equipped. New quarter sawn oak cabinets, quartz counters and stainless steel appliances. The open layout makes for casual dining and keeps the cook connected. Enjoy a cocktail at the bar, dine indoors or out under the wrap around covered patio.

The living room overlooks the pool in back and the mountains in front. The period fireplace provides the focal point and a 46” TV provides evening entertainment.

A 2 car garage provides covered parking and the laundry.

The private backyard features the heated pool & spa, a small lawn and a wrap around covered patio for when you want a break from the desert sun. There is a gas barbecue, lounge chairs and a dining set.

The Coral Cottage is located in Palm Springs’ historic Movie Colony East. This is one of Palm Springs’ oldest neighborhoods and once an escape for Hollywood’s elite. Today it retains all the charm and character while providing easy access to shops, restaurants, museums, night life, and all that Palm Springs has to offer.

About Colin

I'm an architect with a passion for restoring homes. We are local full time residents of Palm Springs ready to take care of any issues that might arise during your stay.

Colin purchased this house in 2014

Why Colin chose Palm Springs, Central

This home is located in one of the city's oldest neighborhoods. It's a home custom built for a single women in a time when that was very rare. The Movie Colony area was the home to many of Hollywood's rich and famous but this modest cottage might have been the get away from their getaway home.

What makes this house unique

This house is only one room deep so from the living room you can look out at the pool in back or watch the sunset over Mt San Jacinto out the front picture window.

Took my family to stay at the coral cottage and we had an amazing time! Me, wife, 4 year old daughter & 8 month old son. We all loved it! Such an spectacular house and has everything you need included. Spent a lot of time relaxing in the lovely pool & backyard! All we needed for our stay was convieniently provided for us.

Thanks so much Colin for letting us stay in your beautiful house- we hope to return one day in the future and would definitely recommend the coral coast to anyone!

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

Coral Cottage is in a great quiet location. The pool and hot tub were very enjoyable. Lots of shady area outside for when the sun gets too hot. Two bikes on the property with the neighborhood easy to ride in since there was very little automobile traffic. Grilled dinner one night out back. For sightseeing, the Tram was a great way to cool off and get into the outdoors at cooler temperatures. Had a very relaxing and great stay.

Wedding stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week long stay at the Coral Cottage during a family wedding. Colin was a pleasure to work with and answered each one of my questions.

The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need to cook in if you choose. The house was spotless on our arrival.

The house inside is beautifully restored and the outdoor space and pool provide a wonderful chance to enjoy the amazing Palm Springs weather.

The neighbourhood is close to downtown PS, yet so peaceful. The view outside the living room window is stunning.

It was so convenient to have the use of a washer and dryer and we used the outside grill several times during our stay.

I would not hesitate to recommend The Coral Cottage home to anyone interested in staying in the PS area.

Hopefully we can return to PS and enjoy this home again. Thanks Colin for all your help.
