About Michelle Weinzettl

We bought this property for many reasons. Love of the desert, passion for the mid-century, and a desire to restore something magical. We love spending all of our free time in this special house, restoring and relaxing. Even more rewarding for us, is sharing our joy with others.

Why Michelle Weinzettl chose Racquet Club Estates

We searched for the right property for months! We had a gut instinct that this was the right property. Why? Big corner lot. Mid-Century gem. Lovely and quiet neighborhood. Off the main streets. Unobstructed views from the backyard!!! PS is know for it's overhead power lines. This property has underground lines, which provides for a perfect view of the mountains and tram!

Pretty darned wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

A classic Alexander butterfly home, designed by Robert Krisel, and in spectacular condition. It was even more than we could hope for; we had not a single problem. The neighborhood is close to everything we were here to see, and if I were able to upload a photo for this review, you’d see a spectacular sunrise turning the looming mountains a fiery red. We were here for Modernism Week; a friend (former editor of House Beautiful and a longtime fan of architect Krisel) stopped by and wagged his finger at us, saying “You were sure lucky to grab this gem! It’s gorgeous!” We agree. If you’re here for Modernism Week, make sure you get tickets to tour like-houses in Racquet Club Estates.

Beautiful home, yard and pool!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an amazing vacation at The Alexander House. The tasteful decor and open concept of the home with the windows looking out to the pool adds to the relaxed vibe and overall comfort of the home. Plenty of comfortable seating and lounge chairs which made being outside a real joy! The location of the property is very ideal. It is close to a grocery store, the main strip on Palm Canyon Drive and a short drive to the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway. Would come back in a heartbeat!

The Alexander house is a very well-appointed property.

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay at the Alexander house was more than pleasurable! The property was in an easy location, on a quiet street, and accommodated our party of 4 adults perfectly. This is just the style of architecture we love, and reminded us of a house we owned for 14 years! Nice bathrooms, fans, AC, and lovely outdoor spaces left us wanting for nothing. Loved that there were lots of towels provided! While here we: Ate at Cheeky’s, Trio, and Birba. We went to the beautiful Palm Springs Art Museum and saw the Andy Warhol show. We ate at Mimmo’s in Palm Desert on our way to Indian Wells Tennis Center. We shopped at Trader Joe’s cooked, shopped at Shag and vintage mid century furniture stops. It was a great 3-day trip, we packed in a lot of activities, and we look forward to returning to this mid century getaway! Wonderful!
