This grand mid-century Hollywood Regency style home is located in the historic Twin Palms neighborhood of South Palm Springs. It's a short walk to the Ace Hotel and Koffi. Or you may decide never to leave this 3,000 square foot modernist gem with walls of glass to the pool and mountain views.

The space
This house has been thoughtfully updated and restored with a reverence for the original 60's architecture. The art is largely by Los Angeles contemporary artists and the furniture by mid-century designers such as Milo Baughman, Thonet, and Richard Schultz. The wall of glass in the living room looks out onto the pool and mountain views. A stone fireplace is double sided to the living room and formal dining room. The kitchen is outfitted with a Wolf range and is adjacent to the pool and wet bar. Three main bathrooms feature Heath tile and terrazzo floors and counters to emulate the original terrazzo entry. And speaking of terrazzo, check out that primary bathroom soaking tub surrounded by an enclosed cactus garden. The fourth bedroom has a private entrance and two queen beds and it's own smart TV. The fourth bedroom has an attached half bath but showers are in the opposite wing of the house with the other bedrooms. Fruit trees encircle the property for that perfect afternoon craft cocktail. Please scroll down under "Things to Know" to read our house rules which include the City of Palm Springs noise ordinance before booking. No parties permitted and that includes bachelor and bachelorette. The City of Palm Springs ID#3317
We welcome filming and photo shoots which can be booked directly through Locations Unlimited. Shoots without permission are subject to eviction and legal action.

This home is on a street of custom built mid-century homes in the desirable Twin Palms neighborhood of South Palm Springs. We are adjacent to the William Krisel Alexander development so it's fun to walk around and look at the architecture. It's a .5 mile walk to Palm Canyon Drive.

I live in Los Angeles but spend as much time as I can escaping to the desert. It satisfies my interest in architecture and design as well as my appreciation of a good book and a poolside chaise longue.
