Mid-century architecture is right at home in the Palm Springs area, but one of our recent listings pulls no punches as it resurrects a once-dormant property and brings it back to life by blending 1950s-era charms with modern conveniences.
This four-bedroom, ranch-style estate, set across nearly an acre on a corner lot in Palm Desert, offers a clean look, stylish finishes and a resort-inspired sanctuary fit for entertaining, lounging or taking in the starlit, evening skies.
After a three-year renovation, which followed nearly two decades of vacancy, this property is ready to rejoin the Palm Desert scene — and it’s doing it in style. Here are 10 things we love about this 3,254-square-foot Joshua Tree Street property.
An oversized mahogany pivot door serves as the grand entryway to the property, offering a rich first impression of a home that has so much more hidden beyond its foyer. From the outside, the door serves as a centerpiece to symmetrical landscaping and front layout. And it teases at what is to come.
The Finnish cedar sauna out back is part of a spa area that also offers a steam shower, an outdoor tub carved from an Indonesian boulder and a yoga studio. It offers a spa experience without the need for an appointment.
A cabana-style outdoor bed is at-once romantic, whimsical and escapist, serving as a centerpiece for conversation, an oasis for a lazy afternoon or an
ideal, cushioned island for stargazing.
Vintage breeze block fencing harkens a familiar, bygone era while adding a retro aesthetic to functional walls designed for privacy.
A pair of indoor kitchens, one for gathering and one for commercial-style prep, offer the perfect place-setting for entertaining. The premium appliances installed in each, including a Monogram induction system in the island and a Monogram french door fridge, serve as a chef’s playground.
The Argentine asadero grill stands out as part of the home’s complete outdoor kitchen, offering a unique culinary opportunity — right in the backyard. The grill is complemented by a Hestan cooktop and a fridge, rounding out a unique cooking, dining and gathering area.
Multiple, bright canopies, and oversized umbrellas, positioned throughout the yard create ample shade for seating, lounging and gathering areas as part of the resort-inspired backyard. The shade pairs well with the home’s 40-foot lap pool.
Smart features boost efficiency and convenience throughout the home, from wifi-enabled appliances to remote-controlled shades to app-based irrigation and pool systems. The features marry modern with mid century.
Sustainable landscape design allows for minimal maintenance, climate conscious watering and an embrace of native species.
A fun golf cart, in gloss red and white — a Shelby Cobra — comes with the house, providing stylish transportation around the neighborhood and nearby. Who can resist?
While the home’s new HVAC systems, oversized windows offering mountain views and strategically placed, mature palms didn’t make the top-10 list, they are all no less irresistible. To learn more about the property, contact PS Properties.
