The Paul Kaplan Group is excited to be listing another classic example of Palm Springs Mid-Century Real Estate. Located on a quiet cul-de-sac in the heart of the historic Palm Springs’ Racquet Club Road Estates neighborhood, this mid-century home is one of the best examples of the forward-thinking design of the architecture team, Palmer and Krisel. The original design has been brought back to life from years of neglect and poor remodeling choices; It is elegantly simple: a “butterfly” sloping roof thin plane, with tongue-and-groove ceilings resting gently on beams and posts, the purest modernist expression of form and function. Twelve-foot wide sliding glass retractable doors allow the free flowing open plan to continue outdoors, featuring an oversized yard, sparkling pool, lounging area, accented by a gas fire pit. The addition of clerestory windows, seen in the original 1959 blueprints but never originally built, open up the living room to capture views of the majestic San Jacinto mountain that guard over the Palm Springs valley. Inside, natural materials express themselves including concrete floors, wood paneling accents, as well as heavy timbered ceiling beams. Recent renovations include custom natural wood cabinets in the kitchen, quartz-style countertops and stainless appliances, baths upgraded with designer tile, and sleek modern fixtures and fittings.
A thorough renovation, took the home down the the studs, and then restored from the inside out. New systems, including plumbing, electrical, heating and airconditiong, bring 21st century comforts to this classic Palm Springs mid-century home. Offered at $549,000. Click here for more information.
