Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description
Designed by celebrated architect William Krisel, this house was built in 1959 as part of the Racquet Club Estates development by the Alexander Construction Company. The Alexander Construction Company was crucial to the development of Palm Springs, designing and building homes that have come to define the city as an enclave of beautiful Mid Century modern architecture. The 'Alexander' houses exude high modernist style, and this particular home is wonderful example of the design. Sleek and elegant, yet warm, comfortable, and inviting, the Mid Century Marvel house captures the spirit of the classic California modernist era. But you don't have to be an architectural buff to enjoy this great vacation home - plain and simple, it's just a beautiful house with excellent amenities!

While we love our home in Brooklyn, NY it's definitely the kind of place you need a break from every now and then - escape the hustle and get some relaxation for awhile. We're both artists and designers in our daily lives and Palm Springs immediately felt like a sunny vacation in a city with a long history of creativity with which we could identify.
We instantly fell in love with the endless sun and modernist architecture of Palm Springs, as well as the friendly, open, and warm attitude of its residents. Each time we escape to our desert retreat we find something else to love about this great city - fantastic Mexican food, great vintage car lots, or a day hike into the beautiful surrounding desert. We hope you'll find your own awesome vacation while at our house!

Why Nick chose Palm Springs
As lovers of Mid Century modern design, the house itself is a big reason why we chose Palm Springs. Designed by celebrated architect William Krisel, this house was built in 1959 as part of the Racquet Club Estates development by the Alexander Construction Company. These beautiful, legendary homes have come to define the golden age of the city. Also, look at THAT POOL!!! While Palm Springs offers a ton of fun activities sometimes you just need a perfect afternoon of sun and swimming in the beautifully landscaped backyard.
What makes this house unique
The Alexander homes radiate classic modernist style, and 505 Sycamore is a wonderful example of the aesthetic. Elegant yet comfortable, the Mid Century Marvel house captures the spirit of classic California modern design. It's a beautiful house with excellent amenities, and the location in downtown Palm Springs puts you in the middle of the action. We're sure you'll love it here just as much as we do!
