About the property

City of Palm Springs ID#654

Built in 1958, the “boomerang” shape of Burton House is a tribute to it’s era and provides fabulous separation of living space and guest quarters. Featuring Dual Master Suites and expansive common areas both indoors and out, this Palm Springs vacation home allows all guests to relax either as a group or on their own. Many of the architectural design elements of Burton House are attributed to the work of the notable Paul R. Williams, with his influences seen throughout the home.

An oversized Citron green door greets guests, with a Swarovski crystal studded solid bronze doorknob previewing the fabulous designer touches that await you! Upon entering the home original design elements such as cork flooring and the ultra rare pecky cypress paneling (that runs both inside and outside the home) have been thoughtfully preserved over the years. Stepping into the common area of the home, a large stacked block gas fireplace bisects the Living and Dining Room areas, with a unique sunken bar set in the “arm of the boomerang”.

The Living Room features an oversized sectional sofa wrapped in platinum vinyl, plush cream-colored Flokati area rug and black lacquered side tables… think sexy “ultra lounge” experience for quiet evenings in. As the sun sets, the gas fireplace will cast a glow and add warmth to the room, highlighted by soft accent lighting from under the fireplace and tucked into the deep woggle ceiling that runs above. Situated just off of the foyer, a cozy Den serves as the Media Room. A custom designed sofa provides guests with a comfortable place to enjoy TV or select a movie from the DVD Collection, carefully curated by a local screenwriter specifically for Burton House. A collection of games and books has also been specifically chosen for guests to enjoy while in residence.

A St. Charles inspired kitchen is sure to inspire many levels of culinary genius. Featuring a full suite of modern Stainless Steel appliances from Thermador and Bosch, including refrigerator, gas cooktop, built-in oven, microwave and dishwasher- even the most experienced chef will find themselves perfectly at home. Once the meal is complete, guests can choose to dine at the dinette located in the kitchen, casually poolside or at the vintage Paul Evans stainless steel dining table, which will seat eight guests with ease. Should guests wish to barbecue, a stainless steel natural gas grill is located adjacent to the pool.

The Master Suite is located on the southern end of the home, featuring an extremely rare Paul Evans Cityscape bed finished in mirrored chrome! This custom King sized bed features built-in lighting and sheer curtains that can be drawn on three sides for the ultimate in fabulousness! The Master Suite also offers a sitting area, Flat Screen TV and en-suite bath with dual vanities, roman tub/shower combination and access to the pool patio from the bath or sliding glass door in the Master Suite.

The Second Master Suite is located at the northern end of the home and features a Queen sized bed, Flat Screen TV, and en-suite bath with custom wall coverings, single vanity and shower. This suite features direct access to the pool patio, perfect for late night swimming or soaks in the spa.

The two additional Guest Quarters are located adjacent to the Master Suite and each feature Queen sized beds, Flat Screen TVs and furnishings chosen to compliment their “Jack and Jill” identities. A common bath between the two guest quarters offers dual vanities and step-in tile and glass shower. This bathroom is also accessible from the hallway, for day guest use.

The Palm Springs notion of indoor/outdoor living has not been overlooked at Burton House. A large Western facing covered patio extends from the house, providing comfortable shaded seating with stunning views of the pool and San Jacinto Mountains! Multiple conversational areas surround the pool featuring chaise lounges, outdoor couches and free-standing umbrellas which provide abundant space for all guests to enjoy the coveted Desert lifestyle. A large freestanding gas fire feature is perfect as dusk falls, bringing light and warmth to the out of doors.

Burton House is the ultimate Palm Springs vacation retreat! Conveniently located just minutes from Downtown Palm Springs, Burton House offers abundant space for all guests, and it’s sleek, ultra chic vibe, will call you back time and again… it IS Palm Springs, Baby!

Birthday Weekend

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had a great, extended weekend stay at Burton House. By far, the best features were the pool, spa and adjacent lounge area. We cooked, barbecued, watched movies, swam, read and enjoyed hanging out on the various loungers and mini cabanas. The house, itself, was cool in many mid-century ways, though a few more updates would have made it even better. The breakfast nook got a lot of action, and we were pleasantly surprised to learn that the sofa in the den pulled out into a bed. We all found the beds comfortable and slept very well.
