An approachable home can make all the difference!

The Sunmor Estates neighborhood in central Palm Springs is a treasure trove of remarkably well maintained mid-century homes built by the Alexander Construction Company, Robert C. Higgins, and Jack Meiselman in the late 50s and early 60s. Though modest in comparison to many homes built today, these properties are sought after for their clean lines and hip provenance.

 1191 Paseo El Mirador, Palm Springs, presented by The Paul Kaplan Group.

For genuine Mid-Century Modern in Palm Springs, this is the real deal, built by Jack Meiselman's El Mirador Park Development Co. in 1957. 

Recently featured during Modernism Week 2018, this home has been carefully updated, with classic architectural details preserved. The interior offers a clean and simple palette throughout, featuring walls of glass that beautifully integrate indoors with outdoors. We love the pristine tongue and groove ceilings and those beams that penetrate through the clerestory windows. You will find the layout to be perfect for parties that flow seamlessly through the living areas. You can also spoil yourself in the privacy of the luxurious master
