The artist/owner has put her special touch on every room of this house, designed by William Krisel, AIA and Dan Palmer for the Alexander Development in 1960 in the Racquet Club Estates neighborhood. There's the classic post and beam construction, updated with polished concrete floors. Metal sculpture, original artwork, and vintage and contemporary furnishings blend together in a blissful way.
Your private paradise continues outside where the large backyard features big, comfy chaises, and a wall of ficus shut out the noise and neighbors. The saline pool is smooth on your skin, no harsh chlorine odor. And there's nothing more relaxing, especially at night, than sitting in the hot tub and soaking in the spectacular mountain views. Plasma TV’s in living and each bedroom, and WiFi are among the modern amenities. Spoil yourself.

We welcome you into our sun-filled paradise, The Butterfly-Alexander.
We are Dave and Sharon Agnor, homeowners, and we spend most of our time in Portland, Oregon. If you know anything about Portland, it's a great city but it's true what they say about the rain. And what's actually harder to handle is how it can stay gray and overcast for weeks on end. Don't get us wrong, we love Portland. But we have the best of both worlds by having this great place to escape to for sunshine and style! As Dave, a psychologist, likes to say: 'It's cheaper than therapy!'
The butterfly roof reminds us of the 50's, rocket-ships and the Jetson's of our childhood. Today, it's where we go to have complete privacy, pool or hot tub depending on the season, and what better place than Palm Springs? Our initial attraction to the area is the desert city itself, with the sunny weather, and uniquely dense mid-century architecture all over downtown; dozens of fabulous restaurants and one of a kind shops are 4 minutes away.
Our home is private mid-century cool. Each room is modern, carefully designed with color and art, but a museum it's not; it's feels like you just want to stay in and go nowhere else. The pool is saline waters and heated. We don't feel or sniff chlorine on our skin. From your chaise lounge or bedrooms you will view the great San Jacinto mountain rise straight up. At night, you can watch the gondola traverse to the top. No street lights mean the stars are clear and bright. Wonderment and a clear head.
