Historic Abernathy Residence

$12,900,000

A landmark Palm Springs estate in the heart of The Movie Colony, considered a crown jewel of mid-century modernism, is available for the first time since earning a Class 1 historic designation. Representing the pinnacle of meticulous preservation, the designation ensures that the William F. Cody-designed home will forever be protected. Coined the James Logan Abernathy residence for the couple who commissioned it in 1961, the home has over its lifetime become a destination for and a backdrop of campaigns for marquee brands, including Disney, Mercedes Benz, Herman Miller, Louis Vuitton and more. Its unique, geometric floor plan is among the features that set it apart, as it includes a series of soaring pavilions arranged in a pinwheel — creating L-shaped wings for the home’s individual living spaces. With 26-foot-high ceiling peaks finished with sandblasted Douglas fir, expansive glass, terrazzo floors and resort-style outdoor living spaces, the Abernathy home blends luxury with privacy and tranquility against a canvas of desert mountain views.  Its undeniable versatility extends to entertaining, thanks to a recently reimagined kitchen finished with design-aligned Poggenpohl cabinetry and Gaggenau appliances. Nothing has been spared in this exquisite William Cody architectural “masterwork.”
