Palm Springs Compound! 5b/4b.Best Quality! Mid-Century/ Modern

Bedrooms 5
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 2-8)

This beautifully appointed home offers five bedrooms, four baths and was professionally restored and expanded in 2006. The fifth bedroom was converted to a media room and makes a king size bed perfect for the kids when needed. Located on a quiet street in the historic Sunmor neighborhood, the main house is an exquisite Alexander mid-century home built in 1958 with breath taking views of the San Jacinto Mountains and surrounding valley. The original Alexander, being 1300 square feet was expanded to over 2,600 square feet maintaining the original post and beam, floor to ceiling glass, and character of the Alexander 'Chalet' home. The expansion and restoration of the house was done with green and recycled materials. In keeping with Alexander’s vision, meticulous consideration was taken in the design and building efficiency.

This home is centrally located with an easy 15-minute walk to downtown Palm Springs where you will find numerous restaurants, shops, and entertainment.

The home was inspired by the owners’ many years of travel and the love of Palm Springs architecture and lifestyle. The owner and designer is influenced by Southeast Asia. He chose to carry a Zen-like quality throughout the home. The grounds are exquisite with such attention to detail, that 44,000 pounds of rock were brought in from Bali, Indonesia. Being within the compound transcends you from everyday life to complete relaxation and rejuvenation.

Guests appreciate the attention to detail and comfortability whether inside or out at this Palm Springs compound. Lush fichus shrubbery provides complete privacy. Magnificent palms surround you while soaking in the hot tub. Beautiful mountain views produce a “resort” feel while staying at the “Livmor” home. The interior areas and grounds come alive at night with dramatic landscape lighting; the focal point being a 2,500 pound Buddha hand carved from Java stone. A beautiful star-filled sky without a street light in sight; you and your loved ones are sure to enjoy a perfect evening building lifetime memories at this classic compound in Palm Springs.

About The Owner

I have been designing and building residential homes for 20 years. It is a passion for me. I love the element of surprise and understatement in a home. I make sure every property I have done contains those two elements along with loads of emotion. Everyone should feel something after leaving a great property.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose Palm Springs

I love the location and the traditional Alexander mid-century neighborhood. Sunmor neighborhood is quiet and well preserved. Its history relating to Palm Springs is quite amazing.

What makes this house unique

When staying at the Livmor house you will find a peaceful tranquility. Relaxation is the key at this home. Many of the art objects on the property come from the far east. Indonesia, Vietnam and Thailand are but some of the countries art and working components of the home originate from. In fact, over 44,000 pounds of rock were brought in from Bali for this unique compound!

Tastefully furnished and immaculate vacation home with strong attention to detail.

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from several nights here and was very impressed! Our company rents approx 20 vacation homes a year and this is definitely one of the best if not the best! Location was not just clean, it was immaculate. As a photographer/homeowner I can definitely appreciate all the attention to detail Matt put into the property. Excellent layout, high end furnishings, excellent HVAC systems so everyone was comfortable, dimmers everywhere to set the mood and tons of landscape lighting so you can safely enjoy the property into the evening. A big plus was the large driveway. We could fit 11 cars there if we wanted to.

Owner's Response: Hi James!! Thanks for the review. You and your group were great work with and are wonderful, respectful renters. You were all warm people and conducted a very professional photo shoot. Come back anytime. Matt PS: Love the driveway comment... Not quite sure 11 cars would fit but indeed plenty of off street parking!

We stayed here for 4 days with another couple.

The owner was extremely accommodating and professional. The property itself was beautifully landscaped, centrally located to shopping and the airport. Excellent layout with BBQ, outdoor speakers and beautiful pool !

Wouldn't hesitate to re-book

Doesn't get any better than this!

  • 5 of 5

Have been fortunate enough to visit and stay at Livmor with my family and friends on more than one occasion and with every visit our family falls more in love with this amazing property. The accommodations, the location and oh did I forget to mention the saltwater pool and spa. Heaven is the operative word here. My family and friends will always have Livmor at the top of our lists. Thanks to ownership for taking such good care of us and your property. Hope to be back soon! Cheers!

A touch of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We recommend this house to anyone wanting a perfect place to stay. Matt met us when we came and was gracious, helpful and full of wonderful suggestions. The house was a beautifully decorated mid-century modern. We were with 2 other couples and the fact that there were 2 bedrooms each in its own house was an unexpected pleasure of privacy. The house was fully stocked, allowing us to have a casual wake up meal, a barbecue or a full dinner. Words cannot do the house justice, but what a pleasure to have a view of the mountains every evening and sipping wine in the hot tub. No resort could offer more.

Mid-Century- Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We fully recommend this house. From the moment we walked and and were greeted by Matt till the moment we left we felt more like we were at a resort than a house rental. The house is beautifully decorated in mid-century furnishings and well stocked with everything from shampoo and towels to candles and vases for outside dining. The yard is so well landscaped that you truly feel like you are at a resort. We are looking forward to renting again and again.

Owner's Response: Thanks Cathy. Your and your friends are great! I am so glad you had a wonderful time. I will see you again soon - I am sure. I know you were referred by another renter who has been renting my house for years and I am happy to know you will become another regular at this relaxing PS home. 85% of all my renters are REPEATS! "LIVMOR"!

Mid-Century Magic!

  • 5 of 5

Would 100% recommend this house to everyone that is looking for high style and quality in your rental! When we arrived at this Mid-Century home, I knew we were in for a treat (pictures on site are great but do not do the home justice). The home is nicely appointed with everything our group needed to enjoy time away from our place. The “Household Working Manual” for how to run things was clear well thought out. The layout of the home is absolutely perfect! There was room for all 8 of us without feeling crowded in any way. The is perfectly located, 5 minutes to downtown, shops, restaurants and close to the airport yet very quiet. Our time at the home was absolute MAGIC! Oh, and the owner Matt could not be a kinder and accommodating person. We will be coming back very soon.
