If you enjoy design, you will love this 1963 private home located in desirable south Palm Desert; completely re-imagined and remodeled by Hollywood designers whose goal was to 'create a get-away retreat that blended Mid-Century ambiance with upbeat 21st century amenities'.
The open concept interior features elegant white terrazzo floors with low-pile, geometrically-patterned carpeted bedrooms, a Euro-modern kitchen and mosaic tile bathrooms. The home is illuminated and furnished with a blend of contemporary (Jonathan Adler) and vintage (Paul Secon) fixtures. Large expanses of glass and sliding doors look out to resort-like grounds with a backyard featuring a sparkling blue pool and a generous emerald lawn, flanked by clusters of mature palm trees.
And when you want to explore, El Paseo (the Rodeo Drive of the desert), just minutes away, boasts the best shopping and dining in the Coachella/Palm Springs Valley. The surrounding mountains offer an abundance of hiking trails. Golfing and tennis opportunities are also available, as well as big name entertainment at the McCallum Theater and local gaming venues.
The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with a custom-converted sideboard for a double-sink vanity. Pierre Cardin night tables bookend the pillowtop Cal King bed. This room has a 46” inch TV and sliding door pool access. The second bedroom has a queen-sized bed and TV. The third bedroom (pool-facing), with a daybed, can double as an office. There is wireless Internet throughout the home, premium satellite service, and a landline for your convenience.
The living room offers a blend of vintage teak and contemporary lacquered furniture, including a Noguchi coffee table, and period abstract paintings that take you back in time. Yet, a high-resolution sound system, Bose speakers, a powered Velodyne sub-woofer, and a new 60” TV remind you that this is the 21st century.
The adjoining dining area can seat up to 8. The custom kitchen has Caesarstone countertops and a bar that seats three. There is a gas stove and oven, microwave, slow-cooker, mixer, blender; all the appliances you need to cook up that great meal when you feel like staying in.
Cue up Sinatra. Stir the drinks. You’re in the perfect setting for entertaining, conversation, or contemplation.
Palm Desert Permit# 38366
We are a married couple who live and work in Los Angeles. We design and create ad campaigns for the entertainment industry.
We chose this Mid-Century house for its generous corner lot, walled private back yard and pool area, and its long, low lines which provided us with a unique design opportunity. We love being in Palm Desert, an art-centric community, and for easy access to the many hiking trails in the surrounding mountains.
Before we renovated, we asked, 'What does this house want to be?'. Our answer was to update with fidelity to its original Mid-Century soul. Our daughter's 18 yr-old friend was visiting recently and validated our vision when she exclaimed, 'I feel like Marilyn Monroe is going to walk in!'.
