About Eugene Brown

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.

Eugene Brown purchased this house in 2010

Why Eugene Brown chose Racquet Club Estates

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

The place was awesome! Me and my wife booked a nice getaway from everyday life and this place was like paradise. We were called before we arrived for arrival instructions. When we got there we had a tour around the house, explaining how everything worked. Eugene has a great description of everything in the red binder. There was no doubt that Eugene took a lot of time thinking of every detail, from the ipad remote for the lights and pool to the patio pergola which opened and closed electronically and the night lights through the house.... this is the perfect place for a stress free, relaxing getaway. I highly recommend this to anyone who needs a break..
