Located in the historic Racquet Club Estates district in Palm Springs number 444 is an immaculately restored Mid Century modern property. It is even featured on local design week tours and was constructed in 1958 by the renowned team of Alexander & Co, designer William Krisel with gardens by William Kopelk.
The authentic and stylish interior features iconic pieces, many original, from designers like Eero Saarinen, Charles Eames, Louis Poulsen and Harry Bertoia. Floors are cool fifties style polished concrete with stunning Warhol and Slim Aarons prints decorating the walls.
All modern touches and comforts are also at hand. The interior is 100% air-conditioned and the kitchen is equipped with all extras like coffee-maker, ice machine, electric juice press, food processor and Nutribullet.
Bedrooms have super-comfortable mattresses, high thread count linens, quality bedding and loads of wardrobe space. The TV room has a Samsung 55" flat screen with Time Warner cable & unlimited wifi.
The lovely gardens with their mountain views have been re-designed and restored by William Kopelk, who also was responsible for the famous Mid-Century gardens of Neutra's Kaufmann House (and is President of The Palm Spings Preservation Assn). Designed in low-irrigation desert style there is a small grassed area with lemon trees at the rear, fire pit and BBQ. The pool is heated and is totally private.
An outdoor covered patio has comfortable seating, also has mountain views and overlooks the pool and gardens.
Within walking distance of the famous design district and just a mile from downtown the location is excellent. Take a stroll - or cycle on your own complimentary bikes - around the local streets for a mini-modernism tour of the wonderful mid-century modern homes of the Racquet Club Estates. Just a fraction farther, and also well worth exploring, are the Movie Colony, El Mirador and Old Las Palmas (watch out for Leo!)
Garage parking is possible for two cars and off street parking for two more.
The property is a rented private home. It is suitable for careful and considerate adult guests. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful and noise needs to be kept to a reasonable level day or night.
