I am a physician who lives in the Chicago area and is in practice in western Illinois. I have lived in the Chicago area for the last 10 years but grew tired of the cold winters and wanted something for a sunny warm weather getaway from my medical practice. I found this house in late 2010 and embarked on a renovation project. I hope you will be pleased with the result.
I selected this property because I wanted an architecturally significant home as opposed to a simply beautiful one. Palm Springs is a hotbed of modernism and mid-century preservation. With the success of Modernism Week in February, more and more of these historic homes are being renovated in this area of Palm Springs. Each year, Modernism week showcases the newest renovations and busloads of visitors come to enjoy the allure of these important homes. For these reasons, these simple but innovative homes often command premium prices for rental and sale.
With its pool and outdoor living areas facing west and abutting a park, this home provides unobstructed mountain views and glorious sunshine on winter days around the pool.
