The owner is a Boston-born architectural designer specializing in the acquisition, restoration, and landmarking of historic properties in Southern California.

His desert retreat, Hamrick House, is named after the Pacific Northwest family that commissioned architects Albert Frey and John Porter Clark to design one of their first residential commissions. The Palm Springs City Council has designated the property a Class I Historic Landmark.

Mark purchased this estate in 2005

“This is such a magnificent and unique historical property,” states Puopolo. “My main goal was to respect and preserve the historical character and integrity while allowing the integration of all the modern conveniences and amenities required for today’s luxury living in the California desert.” continues Puopolo. 'Our natural landscape, spectacular views and the year-round weather led me to the decision to open my home to others who appreciate this special relaxing lifestyle in the tranquil desert setting.' Architectural Digest Editor-In-Chief Paige Rense describes the property as 'remarkable.'

“I love movies and have several clients that work in entertainment and enjoy spending time relaxing in the desert. So the media was an important part of our design plan. The property has state of the art media, ipod connects to surround sound throughout and an incredible outdoor movie theater with a collection of hundreds of movies. Some televisions including the movie screen can display the same movie/dvd throughout- a marvelous feature when entertaining.” “The outdoor king-sized beds are perfect for sunning or watching movies on those balmy nights under the star-studded desert skies with the twinkling view of the city lights.”

Breathtaking views and movies under the stars.. .we will return!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I spent this past Thanksgiving at Hamrick House and had a wonderful experience. It was everything we hoped for and more.

The location is awesome, right next to Downtown Palm Springs, in a beautiful neighborhood. The area is quiet and peaceful and the view from the home is fantastic. We saw some incredible sunsets and one morning even got up early enough to watch the sunrise which was breathtaking.

The home is very well laid out as it is one level with two family rooms, plenty of bedrooms each with an en suite bath, a nice dining room that seats 10 people, and a fully stocked kitchen with a large island that is great for cooking (we were able to cook an entire Thanksgiving meal with everything on hand). The house has a seamless indoor/outdoor feel with huge windows overlooking the view and the rear terrace. We enjoyed spending lots of time lounging by the salt water pool and soaking in the spa. One of our favorite experiences was watching a movie outside. The weather was perfect, we even saw a shooting star while we were watching the movie...sounds cheesy but it’s true!

The décor was stylish and tasteful. I loved that we were in a house that was a true Palm Springs gem. Mark, the owner, was also very professional and accommodating. He recommended many great restaurants which were all incredible. We didn’t take him up on this, but he offered to arrange a private yoga instructor to come to the house, schedule massage therapists and also his private chef.

We loved our time at Hamrick House and can’t wait to come back again very soon.

Amazing home...amazing time......thank you.

  • 5 of 5
Mark, you have restored our faith in having an awesome experience from a stranger. Our stay at Hamrick House is one of the top 3 in our travels. (2 were owned by Kings and we don’t mean Elvis!) The minute we walked through the door and were welcomed by Alex we felt at home. Your attention to detail is superb, the house décor perfect, and as an added bonus comfortable. Thank you for all that went into making this a 5 star experience. We would love to return for longer than 5 weeks.
