Swim naked here!!!
That's just what I think of when I see this private hedged back yard, and sparkling refreshing pool- That's what we do in Palm Springs.
Located in the historic Racquet Club Estates neighborhood of Palm Springs, you'll discover this iconic Mid-Century home featuring the famed "butterfly" roof. (If you look close, the roof is sorta shaped like butterfly wings, with the low point, being where the entry way is). This roof line allows for clerestory windows, which floods the interior with light.
Inside, its an open concept floor plan, innovative for 1960s design. The kitchen features an island that overlooks the living/dining areas- the vaulted tongue and groove ceilings, make the living room spacious and airy- enjoy concrete floors and an original designed concrete block fireplace that is the centerpiece of the room.
A wall of windows and sliding glass door lead to the outdoors- you will want to party here with your friends! A large pool is surrounded by multiple places to entertain- a large conversation area surrounds an outdoor firepit where you can sip cocktails, warm your toes, and enjoy the amazing mountain views from the privacy of your own home! Like to BBQ? There's a built-in outdoor grill, adjacent to the outdoor dining area, with an added bonus of mature fruit trees- pick a lemon and squeeze it on your grilled salmon- can't get any fresher then that.
A modern style sculpture by a Calder protege, accents the back yard, which opens up for additional lounging spots, shade and space for Fido to run around too.
Back inside, there are three bedroom, including a master suite that has its own en-suite bathroom, featuring the original fancy sunken tub (all the rage in 1960!). The clerestory windows are so dramatic and add to the architectural delight of this mid-century home.
The neighborhood of Racquet Club Estates, is home to the largest concentration of mid-century properties in Palm Springs, from the Racquet Club Estates, website,
"Designed by the respected architect William Krisel A.I.A., the Racquet Club Road Estates development was the largest single-family tract home venture built by the famed Alexander Construction Company, The beauty of these post and beam homes designed in the mid-century modern vernacular is found in the soaring waferthin rooflines, clerestory windows, an open floor plan, and a unique indoor-outdoor relationship. Enormous lot sizes contribute greatly toward the livability and enjoyment of these homes."
